Is Blue star Antony Costa joining a soap?

Blue’s Antony Costa could be swapping music and theatre for television.

The Big Reunion star has had guest roles in Casualty and Holby City before, but may be looking for a more permanent part in a soap going forward.

It comes after the news that bandmate Duncan James has joined the cast of Hollyoaks.

Talking to the Manchester Evening News, Antony said: “I am so pleased for Duncan. It’s another string to his bow. He phoned to tell me the news.”

The 35-year-old added: “It would be great to be in a soap because I am a soap fan.

“After performing in front of thousands of people I would go back to the hotel room and watch the soaps.”

Antony is currently starring in rock and roll musical Save the Last Dance for Me in Manchester.

Duncan, meanwhile, will play Hollyoaks newcomer Ryan, who moves into the village with his family.
