Now that Ste is out of hospital and recovering from his near death experience during the epic Enjoy The Ride storyline which played out in award-winning Channel 4 soap, Hollyoaks, earlier this month, things start to slowly return to normal for the deli owner and his new husband, Doug.
Unfortunately, though both are over the moon that Ste (Keiron Richardson) is alright now, the fact that their business had to be shut for so long after the accident has left him and Doug (PJ Brennan) in financial dire straits.
However, all that could be about to change for the newlyweds though, when Doug’s parents return to the village with a very tempting offer for them.
Connie and Herb turn up at the Deli right in the middle of the crisis, and offer their son a solution, they will give the couple the money they need, on the proviso that they move to America!
Doug does not seem to like the idea at first, which makes Ste, whose two children are currently staying with him for six months, happy, but after a while it does seem that Doug may be changing his mind.
Things take a turn for the worse when Doug catches Herb trying to blackmail Ste, which causes even more tension between them all, which is when Connie drops a bombshell – Herb has Parkinson’s disease!
Will this revelation make the couple reconsider their options, we know that now, having missed the opportunity to get rid of Brendan (Emmett J Scanlan) once and for all, this would certainly be a happy alternative for Doug, but will Ste ever be able to leave Double B in the past and move to pastures new?
Watch Doug coming clean to Ste about their argument before the crash in the clip below:
