Physician heals himself.

HE might have just died in Hollyoaks . . . but actor Ben Hull is about to be brought back to life in Brookside Close.

Ben, who played tragic Lewis Richardson in the Channel 4 teen soap, has been resurrected as Brookie's new dishy doctor.

The actor will play Dr Gary Parr who replaces dashing Doctor Darren, played by Tim Deenihan.

Tim left the soap earlier this year to become a media studies teacher at Belvedere girls school in Toxteth.

Hollyoaks fans will be surprised by Ben's appearance in his new role.

Viewers watched his harrowing death after taking an overdose, only a few weeks ago.

His suicide followed scenes in Hollyoaks' latenight spin-off series Movin' On, in which Lewis beat up his ex-girlfriend Ruth, played by Terri Dwyer.

David Hanson, senior Brookside producer, said today: "It's fantastic to have Ben in Brookside.

"He's a terrific actor and we're looking forward to playing some racy and dramatic stories with his character."
