Well this headline does mean one thing (surely!), the biggest death toll Hollyoaks has ever seen, which is due to happen in a bus crash in the next few weeks, will not include show favourites Brendan Brady and Ste Hay, as they have been spotted filming together on location, very intimately indeed we might add!
We reported last week how a bus driven by Hollyoaks Queen Bee, Maddie (Scarlet Bowman) is set to plough into the double wedding ceremony of Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) and Cindy Cunningham (Stephanie Waring) and Ste Hay (Keiron Richardson) and Doug Carter (PJ Brennan) leaving at least two main characters dead, with many rumours suggesting the fatalities will be huge, the biggest the show has ever seen in one sitting! Emmett J. Scanlan has been teasing the end of Brendan Brady for months now, so when news of this story broke, everyone’s hearts were in their mouths thinking that Brendan may finally be leaving the show. But, pictures leaked on Digital Spy today show Emmett on location filming scenes after the crash (we believe) with Keiron… and they are kissing!
Fans of the hit Channel 4 soap will know how Ste is the absolute love of Brendan’s life, but that a combination of Brendan’s denial about his sexuality, his sordid past and repeated domestic violence towards Ste, made it impossible for them to ever be together properly.
During the Savage party, earlier this year, we all had a glimmer of hope that they might finally be reunited when Ste met Brendan at the hotel following the purchase of the Deli, but it all turned out to be a rouse to get him to sign over the business to him.
Since then, Ste’s relationship with Doug has gotten stronger, but there is still always that little sparkle in his eye whenever Brendan is around, something that Doug has noticed too, and the couple’s relationship has become very strained of late thanks to the moustached Double B.
Now that it is known that Ste is going to marry Doug, we all thought that surely that was the end of the line for him and Brendan, who together are affectionately known as Stendan, but as the pictures show, it looks like we were wrong!
The pair were spotted in Dublin earlier this week filming the night scenes which see’s Brendan and Ste kissing, armed with bags, and at one point seemingly skipping off to the sunset together happily, all caught by paparazzi photographers on the Ha’penny Bridge for this new mystery storyline.
So, if these scenes do mean that the pair survive the bus crash and seemingly get back together, does this mean that Doug is one of the fatalities?
Hollyoaks can be seen week nights at 6.30pm on Channel 4/ Channel 4 HD.
