FORMER Hollyoaks hunk Jamie Lomas has flown to LA for a third crack at Hollywood.

The star, who is married to Ashton actress Kym Lomas, is to stay there for two months for pilot season and will meet up with fellow Hollyoaks pal Ricky Whittle.

While he enjoys the Hollywood sun, Kym, 36, will stay at home with her children David, 17, Emily, 15, and Polly, who will be two in March.

Jamie, 32, flew to the US last January and in the summer and stayed with Ricky, who played Calvin in Hollyoaks and has had recent success with film Austenland.

A source close to the couple, who married last September, said: “Kym’s extremely supportive, so she’d never stop him. He’s had a rough year work-wise, but believes he can break the States.”

Meanwhile Kym has been marked as the 31st richest reality TV star by Now magazine.

The magazine reports that Kym, who found fame on ITV talent show Popstars in 2001, is worth £3.15m. It claims she signed a recent £500,000 deal with ITV for Coronation Street.
