It’s been a big year for the Hollyoaks crew: they’ve been working around the clock, tackling some spectacular storylines. Gary Lucy won the show’s first award at the British Soap Awards, there was a massive nationwide search for new cast members and the show has aired three days a week with some sensational (and saucy) late-night specials. It’s safe to say that it’s now the hottest teen soap of the moment. star gatecrashed the Hollyoaks Christmas party to chat to Gary Lucy (Luke), Terri Dwyer (Ruth), James Redmond (Finn) and Elize Du Toit (Izzy) and to find out what happens when they kick back and head out for a night on the razz…

star: WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR?
Elize: I’m going to South Africa. That’s where I’m originally from and our family goes back every second Christmas. It’s boiling over there at this time of year so we go to the beach, but Christmas isn’t such a big deal over there.

star: WHAT WOULD BE YOUR IDEAL CHRISTMAS GIFT?
E: My dream Christmas present would probably be a villa in Italy! Wouldn’t everybody say the same?

star: WHERE DO YOU TEND TO GO OUT IN LIVERPOOL AND LONDON?
E: I agree, the Living Room is a really nice venue – it’s got a nice atmosphere and there’s a piano that tinkles away in the background while you’re eating.

star: WHAT WOULD YOU SAY HAVE BEEN YOUR HIGH AND LOW POINTS OF THE YEAR?
E: That’s a scarey question! It’s been a very bizarre year. I guess my high point would be to getting this job, but I’m quite an emotional person, so I have a low point every three days.

star: HOW DID YOU FEEL ABOUT SEEING YOURSELF ON THE COVER OF LOADED, ELIZE?
E: That was weird because I’d never seen myself in a sexual way before and then there I was on the front cover of a magazine holding my breast! And I’d been put together with another girl and it all looked very sexual. I was confused because we were never meant to be on the cover and it was the first shoot that I’d ever done so I was just having fun with it. I hadn’t even read loaded before so I didn’t really know what it was like.
