The moment Hollyoaks fans have been waiting for as Kim Butterfield FINALLY meets Rick Astley

Her Hollyoaks character has been turning to a poster of pop legend Rick Astley for solace when she was held captive for months, so actress Daisy Wood-Davis was thrilled to meet the pop legend for real.

Daisy, who plays Kim Butterfield, has been asking to get Rick on the soap since his poster became a lifeline for her character in a scenario similar to Wilson the volleyball in the Tom Hanks film Castaway.

And the Never Gonna Give You Up singer didn’t let her down when he invited Daisy to his gig in London on Thursday night after hearing about the bizarre storyline.

Daisy, whose character spent weeks locked up in Hollyoaks High School with just Rick’s poster for company and tins of beans to eat, looked delighted to meet her Hollyoaks ‘co-star’ backstage at the gig at All Saints Church in Kingston.

Previously speaking to the M.E.N about the storyline Rick, 52, from Newton-le-Willows, admitted it was “kind of weird” knowing a poster of himself has become a regular fixture in the hit show, which has welcomed celeb guests including The Vamps and Alan Carr for cameo appearances in the past.

Asked if he he might end up meeting Kim as a conclusion to the story he teased: “I don’t know, Watch this space.”

So it seems we’ll have to wait and see if the hitmaker, whose new albumn Beautiful Life is out now, will appear on the show in the flesh.
