I need to make a correction. I'm sorry to let people down who rely on this blog for truth and accuracy and can't imagine me making any mistakes ever but, look at it this way, it's better for your hero characters to have flaws.
When the winner of "Write an episode of Hollyoaks" was announced I Googled the winner, Jamie Austin, but all I could find was a UK myspace of someone called Austin who was a Hollyoaks fan and I put two and two together.

Here is a newspaper article from his local paper celebrating his success.
