Peter McPherson - Hollyoaks


Peter has joined the cast of Hollyoaks as Gareth for an impactful long-running storyline which will explore the perils of conversion therapy. 

Ben Wadey, Channel 4’s commissioning executive, said: ‘Conversion therapy may sound like something extreme or rare but sadly the figures tell us otherwise.... It is a practise that is devastating and tends to affect the most vulnerable in the community, young people coming out or exploring their sexuality which is why it is vital that Hollyoaks’ audience, with its youthful demographic, are fully informed. Hollyoaks is well-known for never shying away from a subject that is agenda-setting and can help educate and inform and has a history of successfully telling difficult and important stories.’

Hollyoaks has worked with campaigners and advisers with lived experience of conversation therapy.

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 7pm on E4. Stream episodes first weekdays on All4.
