New family for Hollyoaks

'Hollyoaks' is set to welcome a new family.

The Nightingales will take over the local pub, The Dog in the Pond, from the Osborne family in October and are set to cause a stir when they arrive in town.

Patriarch, Mac, played by David Easter, previously showed up on the soap in May as Cindy's (Stephanie Waring) secret husband, just after she tied the knot with Dirk Savage (David Kennedy).

He will arrive in the village with daughter, Ellie (Sophie Porley), two sons Nathan (Jared Garfield) and Alfie (Richard Linnell), and Nathan's fiancé, Rachel Hardy (Jennifer Brooke).

His glamorous girlfriend, Neeta Kaur (Amrit Maghera) will take up the position of landlady at The Dog.

Speaking about his new role, former 'Family Affair's actor David said: "I really wanted to be to be in 'Hollyoaks' and Bryan Kirkwood knew of my work so it came along very quickly.

"The family move in with a bit of a bang and of course Mac's secretly married to Cindy so there is going to be some tremendous dramas trying to sort that out."
