A HOLLYOAKS actor is holding drama classes for children.

Youngsters will be coached by Victoria Atkin, who starred in the Channel 4 drama series for a year.

The two-day class will take place at The Beckett Cente in High Road Woodford Green on August 30 and August 31.

The course is suitable for children aged eight to 16 and costs £120 for both days.

Miss Atkin said: "There is so much new talent coming out of Essex. I thought it would be a good place to hold the acting class and see what Essex has to offer.

"I just want to give something back, because 10 years ago that would have been me."
