In March 2011, it was announced that Liberty's family would be introduced to Hollyoaks. Actor David Kennedy was cast in the role of Dirk Savage, the father of Liberty, Will and Dodger. Of the family, a Hollyoaks spokesperson added: "The new family will take the village by storm and are set to rub all the McQueens up the wrong way. The Savage family get evicted from their home when Dirk can't keep up with the payments. Liberty is furious to come home and find her house all boarded up but big brother Dodger has a new house for them to live

in! While the McQueens are away on holiday, Dodger moves his family into the empty house and declares squatters' rights! How will the McQueens react to their new housemates?"
