We can exclusively reveal that this Friday Dave "The Rave" Colburn is set to show his cheeky li'l face in Hollyoaks village for the final time. However, you'll still be able to follow the madcap adventures of Dave for another few weeks. Confused? Read on...
Dave, played by Elliot James Langridge, entered the main Hollyoaks show back in the summer of 2009 before dragging Josh off for fun times in Manchester. It was here where they both starred in the boozed up online spin-off, Hollyoaks: The Morning After the Night Before. In September of last year party boy Dave came back to Hollyoaks proper to study at the HCC.
Dave's wild lifestyle went on to wreak havoc in the village. He was involved in many student hi-jinx (including stealing the MOBS bike and wrecking The Dog in the Pond), as well as getting accused of date raping Anita Roy and having a key role in the aftermath of Josh's crash.
It's fitting that just as Dave was introduced to audiences through an online Hollyoaks spin-off, Dave's departure will also be shown during an online Hollyoaks spin-off. Yep, Elliot's character is to conclude his time on Hollyoaks via Hollyoaks Freshers - the online drama which begins this Thursday (26th August) at 7pm on e4.com/freshers.
Before Thursday's debut Hollyoaks Freshers episode get your teeth stuck into Lee Hunter's video blogs on Facebook! Oh yes! The character who was last seen in Hollyoaks in 2005 makes his return to the show in this brand new online drama. Check it right out!
