THREE former Hollyoaks stars are making the news this week...

Ricky Whittle, who used to reside in Billinge, has split up with girlfriend Rumer Willis after three months because he was too busy filming American TV drama The 100.

But it seems Rumer, who is the daughter of Hollywood legend Bruce Willis, is not too upset.

An insider said that the 26-year-old had been chatting to ex-boyfriend Jayson Blair. The source said: “Rumer’s been fine and has barely mentioned Ricky to friends.”

Meanwhile, former Billinge West End star Carley Stenson will turn on the Christmas lights at Broad Street Mall in Reading on November 15. She will be joined by her boyfriend, Danny Mac, who plays Dodger in Hollyoaks, and former Dancing on Ice champ Ray Quinn.

And the animal lover has shown her support for Borrow My Doggy - an organisation connects dog owners and local borrowers for play days - on Twitter. Carley borrowed Ruby for a day and enjoyed long walks and play time. She tweeted: “Love using @BorrowMyDoggy iv had the pleasure of meeting wonderful people who truly love their gorgeous doggies x makes me so happy x buzzin.”
