Michael Greco slams Hollyoaks for AJ and Curtis Pritchard castings

EastEnders actor Michael Greco has slammed Hollyoaks for casting Curtis and AJ Pritchard.

Curtis made his first appearance in the Channel 4 soap last week, appearing opposite brother AJ.

The scene in question has since gone viral on social media, with many voicing their disdain.

Former Hollyoaks actor Gerard McCarthy, for one, branded the clip an ‘absolute car crash.’

‘The next time a producer/casting director says the words “but they have a big social media following”…. Just point them in the direction of this absolute car crash!,’ said the star, who portrayed Kris Fisher.

‘THEY WILL BE SH*TE!,’ he added in another tweet.

Michael Greco, best known for portrayed Beppe di Marco in EastEnders seemingly echoed Gerard’s sentiment.

‘This is everything and more that is wrong with an industry I love,’ he said in a tweet. ‘These people that suddenly come up with these casting ideas need to resign immediately. Shocking’

‘I think people can watch this and learn so much from it. How “not” to act. Shocking’

Strictly star AJ made his first appearance in Hollyoaks last month as Marco – an old dance rival of Trish Minniver’s (Denise Welch).

Trish eventually caved and gave Marco a job, but the young man has ulterior motives, as he and scorned brother Jacob – played by Curtis – have revenge on their mind.
