The latest additions to the Hollyoaks cast have got viewers all in a spin.

AJ and Curtis Pritchard have continued to fascinate, dazzle and horrify loyalists of the long-standing Channel 4 soap since their first scene together at the start of the month.

The brothers and professional dancers play Marco and Jacob – twins with a dastardly plan to take down the former’s dance rival Trish.

But it’s not their scheming that has whipped audiences into a frenzy, it’s their… unique acting skills.

Weeks after the pair made headlines for their “wooden” and “primary school”-style debut, they were back blowing up social media with a new eyebrow-raising segment.

On one of the most recent episodes, Marco managed to get hold of his nemesis Trish’s “little black book” – announcing his sneaky acquisition with a triumphant pirouette.

The spin, accompanied by some significantly stirring music, dropped jaws across the country, as viewers flocked to Twitter, Instagram and TikTok to voice their takes on the latest display.

After the clip was shared on the popular Love of huns page, one user wrote: “Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse.”

Another asked: “Is this actually on Hollyoaks? I thought the first one was a mick take but the more clips I see the less I think it is.”

And a third commented: “GCSE drama strikes again.”

The reaction on Twitter was similarly ruthless, as you can see:

However, a number of users hailed the duo for brightening up their screens:

AJ, 26, quit Strictly Come Dancing last year to pursue other TV opportunities alongside his younger brother Curtis, 25, who is best known for coupling up with Maura Higgins on the Love Island set.

Between the two, the siblings have appeared on Celebs Go Dating, I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, Ru Paul’s Drag Race, and Greatest Dancer before turning their attention to acting.

In case you missed it, here’s a look at their first scene and the bedlam that ensued:

We can’t wait to see what the dynamic duo come up with next.
