A car cliff-dive, a proposal, a miss-judged kiss and the departure of a Latino con man… tonight’s (7 March) first-look Hollyoaks was rather eventful.
In the edition viewers found out that John Paul McQueen (James Sutton) didn’t die in the ill-fated sports car cliff-dive.
James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) released the handbrake and pushed the car towards the incline, lying to John Paul that Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) was in the boot – his manic actions motivated by the discovery (via an unwitting Ste) that John Paul and Ste had spent a night together.
John Paul’s infidelity and James’ cruel porky pie has secured the end of ‘McNight’ especially as John Paul is set to leave the show this week, but how will he depart?
Meanwhile, Ste realised that Harry Thompson (Parry Glasspool) was the man for him and proposed in the middle of the village. Harry’s acceptance of the proposal was witnessed by John Paul, who was rushing to declare his true feelings for Ste.
The E4 broadcast also saw the underhanded ways of Diego Salvador Martinez Hernandez De La Cruz (Juan Pablo Yepez) exposed when the mother of his child, Myra McQueen (Nicole Barber Lane) found out that he had been sleeping with cougar, Frankie Osborne (Helen Pearson) in order to con money out of her.
Myra was undeterred in her plan to move to Spain with Diego despite knowing he had been conning Frankie, but had second thoughts upon discovering his infidelity, sending Diego packing all on his lonesome.
Elsewhere, poor Cleo McQueen (Nadine Mulkerrin) experienced another crippling rejection when she drunkenly tried to kiss trainee priest, Joel Dexter (Rory Douglas Speed). After losing her sister and the love of her life in recent weeks, Cleo was desperate to clear her head and got drunk at The Loft. However, when new crush Joel paid her some much-needed attention, she tried to kiss him.
It seems that Cleo’s latest set-back could spark more trouble when she tells her family and Joel that she slept with Warren Fox (Jamie Lomas) in tomorrow’s E4 episode (Wednesday 8 March)…
