Scenes like these from Hol­lyoaks... SILLY SUD!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By ALICE WALKER

But Emma said: “There aren’t enough strong, smart and in­tel­li­gent women for my lik­ing.

“I want to re­de­fine what sexy and glam­orous is in Hol­lyoaks. I don’t want girls just to watch and think, ‘I want that oufit!’. I’d like them to see it as an emo­tional en­cy­clopae­dia that’s rel­e­vant to changes and is­sues in their lives.”

View­ers are out­raged be­cause many only tune in to see babes like El­ize Du Toit, Gemma Atkinson and Rox­anne Mckee.

Fan Thomas Aller­ton, 20, thinks Emma’s plans will be a dis­as­ter.

The English Lit­er­a­ture stu­dent from Hull said: “It’s not gone down well with me or the four lads I live with.

“It’s stan­dard viewing ev­ery Sun­day – we all watch the om­nibus edi­tion and not for the sto­ry­lines. It‘s to see Gemma Merna’s mas­sive boobs.”

And me­dia ex­pert Holly Jame­son warned the soap may strug­gle to keep its mil­lion reg­u­lar view­ers.

She said: “When some­thing known for be­ing light-hearted and sexy tries to be some­thing else it is tricky. It can be dif­fi­cult to keep your es­tab­lished au­di­ence while try­ing to build a new one, re­brand­ing Hol­lyoaks like this will take some do­ing to pull off.”
