Hollyoaks spoiler: Carmel refuses to leave hospital!
Poor Carmel McQueen has taken the news that the horrific scars caused in her recent tanning accident are permanent, very badly in deed.
And things aren’t set to get any better for the unlucky-in-love McQueen any time soon, as in a couple of weeks time Hollyoaks viewers will watch her refusing to leave hospital, ashamed of how she now looks!
Worried with her new appearance, Carmel pleads with sister Jacqui (Claire Cooper) not to make her face the world looking like she does, her face has several bad burns and a huge slash across one cheek, and so Jacqui tells her a few white lies to get her kind-hearted sister home.
Jacqui tells Carmel that the scarring wont be permanent, and this seems to calm her down, until she discovers the truth and hits rock bottom.
Desperate to try and convince her that hiding away is not the answer, the McQueens enlist the help of Carmel’s close friends Nancy Osbourne (Jessica Fox) and Cindy Cunningham (Stephanie Waring) to visit the hospital to support her and try and help convince her that the best place for her is home with her family.
A Hollyoaks insider said: “Carmel can’t face returning to the village – she is in for a tough time.”
