Hollyoaks fans all knew it was only a matter of time before Brendan Brady (Emmett J Scanalan) cottoned on to ex boyfriend, Ste Hay‘s (Keiron Richardson) new romance with business partner, Doug Carter (PJ Brennan), but I don’t think his reaction is what everyone would have been expecting.
Fans of the hit Channel4 soap will know how the money raised to secure the deposit for Dog and Ste’s new business, the Delli, came from Brendan without Ste’s knowledge, as a way to keep a hold of his former love.
However, after working so closely to one another, Ste and Doug began to develop feelings for each other, despite the fact that Doug was, until that point straight. After a cooling period, the romance was looking like being back on track, but in next Wednesdays (06/06/12) episode viewers will be shocked when both Doug, and Brendan declare their love for Ste, forcing him to choose between them!
It all begins when, after discovering the romance, a very jealous Brendan plays his deposit card, revealing to Ste how Doug got the money for the Delli, which enrages the hard-working chef. He is so furious with his business partner that he calls off their blossoming romance, and turns to bad-boy Brendan for comfort.
Brendan offers him his own business deal, but once Ste has bitten, Brendan seizes the opportunity to discuss the possibility of them getting back together now that Doug is out of the picture.
Brendan tells Ste that he still loves him, a confession which leaves the father of two stunned. His confusion is not helped when, the very same day, Doug pleads with him to give him another chance.
Whilst trying to remain rational, Ste tells both men he needs time to think, but viewers may, or may not be surprised with his final choice, Brendan!
A Hollyoaks insider told The Daily Star newspaper: “Ste’s only stipulation is that Brendan wipes out the deli’s debt.
“But as everyone knows, it’s going to take some doing for Brendan to keep his temper in check and his fists to himself.”
You can watch the drama between the lads unfold a week on Wednesday.
