Hollyoaks has given Doctors a shout-out as part of the multi-soap crossover airing this week.

All of the big UK soaps have agreed to reference each other as part of a joint mission to raise awareness of climate change.

In Monday's E4 first look episode of Hollyoaks (November 1), Brooke Hathaway and Ripley Lennox got chatting about Daniel Granger – one of the longest-serving characters on BBC One daytime drama Doctors.

Brooke (Tylan Grant) was trying to give Ripley (Ki Griffin) some inspiration to persist with plans for a sustainable fashion show at the local market.

As Ripley was close to giving up, Brooke showed them a picture of Dr Daniel (Matthew Chambers).

Brooke asked: "Do you know who this is? It's Daniel Granger. He's dressed up as World Warrior to raise awareness about recycling.

"He's a doctor from Letherbridge – and an ordinary guy. If he can make a difference, so can we."

Later, Daniel came up in conversation again when Brooke tried to fight Ripley's corner with Cindy Cunningham (Stephanie Waring), who is threatening to shut down their market stall due to low sales.

After hearing about Daniel's efforts, Cindy remarked: "Well, I do have a thing for doctors…"

Hollyoaks, Doctors, Coronation Street, EastEnders, Emmerdale, Holby City and Casualty are all taking part in the crossover, which coincides with the COP26 conference.

The idea was masterminded by Emmerdale's executive producer Jane Hudson.

Hudson recently commented: "Never before have all five soaps and both continuing dramas come together and united in telling one story.

"And we certainly haven't seen characters pop up in other shows before. This is a real treat for our audience, whilst also allowing us to get across a very important message."
