HOLLYOAKS actor Stuart Manning has treated fans to his real-life abode – showing it’s a far cry from life in the village.
The 39-year-old, whose character Russell Owen was killed off last year, lives in a stunning house complete with a fire place and country chic design.
The star is a big animal lover and often shares pictures of his two dogs who look like they rule the roost.
The pups – called Bodie and Alfie – go everywhere with Stuart and once back at home often lie on the couch with him as they watch TV.
It’s no surprise they like the living room though as the stunning cream room features a roaring fire.
The actor has two sofas – a cream and leather one – where he spends time watching the football.
At Christmas time Stuart and his wife Sarah – who he married in 2017 – put up a huge Christmas tree.
Their dog Bodie even likes to get into bed, where he gets comfy on their huge wrought iron bed.
Stuart first appeared in Hollyoaks from 2004-2009 before briefly returning in 2018 – much to the delight of viewers.
He returned in August of that year but his character was killed off in November after Breda crept up behind him and killed him with a hammer.
At the time he admitted he was “gutted” to get killed off, telling fans: “It’s been an amazing three months, the best time of my life working on Hollyoaks.
