Hollyoaks at launch of new Cavern Walks boutique

Published on March 2nd 2010.


Soap stars open shop

HOLLYOAKS PEOPLE get everywhere. In fact, we calculate that given the frequency that cast members pop up around Liverpool, Chester, Manchester and everywhere in between, Hollyoaks must surely be the region's biggest employer.

They even manage to get on the telly. Every evening. But those are probably stunt doubles.

Here are some more, canoodling and lending support to their friend Louisa Kelly, a stylist on the popular teatime soap, who opened Cello, a designer boutique in Cavern Walks, at the weekend.

The store showcased new labels by Couture designers Kelly Seels and AnniLou who created one-off pieces exclusively for the event.

Screaming funkiness: Hollyoaks stars Carly Stenson, Ricky Whittle and Gemma Merna at the opening of Cello

Carly Stenson, who plays Steph Dean in Hollyoaks, commented: “I’ve always been a fan of the styles created by Louisa but I’m absolutely loving her new range of dresses. The colours are wonderful and the styles scream funkiness. I can’t stop looking around.”

Admittedly it helps when you open a boutique and your soap colleagues are well turned out. Which perhaps explains why a similar Brookside-influenced business model - by whoever “styled” Harry Cross, Sinbad and Tinhead i– might have fallen the first hurdle.
