Yep, crack out a warm welcome and prepare for Duncan to hit up the soil of Chester, after sharing news on Twitter that he'll play Ryan - the head of a new family who have just moved into the village.
Speaking to Channel 4, he commented: "I'm looking forward to working with the fantastic on and off screen talent on hte show and bringing the character of Ryan to life", whilst he added on Twitter: "Thrilled 2 finally announce & confirm I am about 2 start a new chapter in my life as a full time member of the @Hollyoaks cast.

A spokesperson for the soap went on to add a profile for his character, revealing: "Ryan is a good guy in a committed relationship who will move into the village. He is a grounded family man with principle and integrity but who will fight tooth and nail for what he believes in."
As of yet we're not entirely sure when Duncan will make his on-screen appearance, but one thing's for sure: we'll be waiting with the snacks.
