Speaking to Metro.co.uk, he said: ‘It was amazing to see [Emmett], and obviously I’d love for a Stendan reunion to happen, but I don’t think that will be any time soon, but who knows what the future hold? 

Though he didn’t confirm a reunion, Kieron, 37, didn’t exactly rule it out either, meaning there is still hope for stalwart Stendan supporters.

Meanwhile Kieron opened up on what it was like to have Emmett briefly back on set, over a decade since the dodgy character departed. 

He said: ‘Emmett actually lives in Chester and was randomly walking past. One of our makeup artists spotted him and was like, ‘Your little Ste’s getting married over there’ so he came to say hello. 

‘There’s a scene actually where Ste’s tied to a lamppost and a passerby takes pictures of him because he finds it funny, and we were thinking wouldn’t it be amazing if we actually got Emmett to play the passerby.

‘It would work because he looks so different at the minute – he’s in another show and he’s got to shave his beard, so he looks a bit unrecognisable, really young actually.’

He continued: ‘It was so weird on the day because there were fans watching and crew members so when we were stood together, I think people were expecting something to happen but we just had a little catch up.’

It comes as this week’s Hollyoaks episodes will see the drama reach breaking point as Ste and James are set to marry while Juliet wrestles with a shocking revelation about her health.
