Speaking about his new role, Chris said: “I’m delighted to join the cast of Hollyoaks.
“For me to play Stuart is a real challenge that I relish.
Adding: “As an actor you are always looking for something to challenge and stretch you; this character certainly does that…”.
Chris won a legion of fans when he played DC Mickey Webb on The Bill from 1998-2010.
During his tenure on the ITV drama, his character was the focus of a harrowing male rape storyline.
The announcement comes after Chris accidentally revealed that he was joining the Channel 4 soap on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Ste has had a rough time of late on the long-running Channel 4 soap after Jonny Baxter admitted he isn’t his brother.
The shady coffee shop manager, who is played by actor Ray Quinn, finally confirmed he has devious plans for Ste as he forced Terry to leave him alone last month.

Terry confronted Jonny and found out the truth.
Terry told him: “An old mate of mine came to visit me today and swore down Pauline never had another rugrat before that squirt. Why are you so bothered about protecting him? We both know you’re not his brother.”
Finally admitting the truth, Jonny told Terry: “Course I’m not but Ste is never going to believe you, is he? So you better stay away otherwise next time it won’t just be a few cracked ribs.”
