Well, that didn’t take her long, did it? Hollyoaks newcomer, Maxine Miniver, is set to pursue Liam Gilmore in an upcoming storyline!
Fans of the hit Channel 4 show will know Mitzeee’s (Rachel Shenton) older sister, Maxine (Nikki Sanderson) came bounding on to our Hollyoaks screens the week before the mini bus crash, and it didn’t take a genius to work out she was trouble!
At first Mitzeee seemed less pleased to see her sister as she would Mercedes Fisher (Jennifer Metcalfe) as it was revealed that Maxine had run off with Mitzeee’s fiancé several years before.
However the sisters finally showed uniformity and joined forces against the rest of the Village, half of whom Maxine had managed to con with an hour of being back in Chester , but now it looks like Maxine sets her sights on an even bigger prize – Liam!
Liam (James Farrar) joined the cast a few months ago whilst his sister was embarking on an illicit relationship with one of her students, but since that fizzled out, he has remained pretty quiet.
We reported a few weeks ago how Liam is set to hurt Carmel Valentine (Gemma Merna) when, after flirting with her, he notices her facial scar and recoils. Whilst we all hoped he would come to his senses and make things up to poor Carm, it would seem that Maxine’s attentions may distract him in doing so!
After landing herself a job at her sister’s pub The Dog in The Pond, Maxine’s head is quickly turned by the buff former gym owner, and so concocts a devious plan to get him to notice her.
Accidentally spilling a drink on him (which we thank her for implicitly as it means he removes his shirt!), she then turns up the jukebox and suggests they have some fun….
Hollyoaks airs these scenes on Friday, November 30 at 6.30pm on Channel 4.
