It follows the news that Piers has landed himself a cameo on Hollyoaks!

The former journalist, along with TV stars Susanna Reid, Carol Kirkwood, Ken Bruce and Debbie Mac will appear in Hollyoaks next week as Storm Belinda hits the Chester village.

The Good Morning Britain co-hosts will play themselves as they break news of the fictional Storm Belinda which threatens to hit the village, and BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood will be seen on the Channel 4 soap teasing the inclement weather set for the Chester area.

Show bosses have also enlisted the help of Radio 2 presenter Ken Bruce and regional radio host Debbie Mac to make the storyline look more realistic.

The storm will threaten Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) and Harry Thomson’s (Parry Glasspool) big day, and fans are already aware Stephanie Davis will make her return as Sinead O’Connor during the dramatic episodes.
