Listen on

Episode notes

It's a quarter of a century since Hollyoaks began on Channel 4. And to mark its 25 years we're meeting some of the show's original stars.  We've heard from Yasmin Bannerman who played Maddie Parker - and here we're re-releasing our interview with the lovely Lisa Williamson who played Hollyoaks original character Dawn Cunningham in the soap. Lisa was at Hollyoaks from 1995 to 1997 until her character was dramatically written out. She's been chatting to Ashley Byrne. Please note: There is a brief dose of strong language in this recording so please be vigilant if playing around children.

The Distinct Nostalgia theme is composed by Rebecca Applin and Chris Warner. DN is an MIM Production in association with Life Rooms and the MerseyCare NHS Trust.
