As we have previously reported, Hollyoaks rapist Finn O’Connor is set to return to our screens, and now w have more details, and pictures to share with you!
Fans of the hit Channel 4 soap will know that Finn (Keith Rice) was sent to prison last year after being tried for the rape of John Paul McQueen (James Sutton) and the attempted rape of Nancy Osborne (Jessica Fox).
The sentence came at the end of a lengthy and highly-emotional storyline which saw former teacher John Paul having to come to terms with his ordeal, while living in the same village as his attacker.
But now, even after Finn was dealt the justice he deserved, John Paul is set to realise that he hasn’t completely come to terms with what he has been through.
Of course he’s has had more than just this to deal with of late, with the deaths of two of his sisters and his husband Ste’s drug addiction and HIV diagnosis, so it stands to reason that JP sees Finn as the one issue that he still has some power over.
The situation arises when John Paul takes the first steps to finally piecing his life back together after impressing his old High School boss, Patrick Blake (Jeremy Sheffiled) so much that he agrees to put in a good word for him with the school governers to have him reinstated in the English department.
However, later that same day John Paul recieves a phone call from Finn in prison requesting that he come and visit him.
The reason behind Finn’s request is to try and make amends after prison has made him face up to what he did to his former teacher, but John Paul isn’t in a very forgiving mood.
In fact the father of one’s instant reaction is to turn to village gangster Trevor Royle (Greg Wood) armed with a bag of cash to have Finn taken care of for good.
We don’t want to give away whether Trevor will accept the job, but we can tell you that JP is left even more furious later on when he realises that Finn’s sister Sinead (Stephanie Davis), who happens to be carrying his husband’s baby, has been secretly going to visit Finn behind bars.
Determined to wash this entire situation out of his hair for good, JP confronts Ste (Keiron Richardson) and Sinead after they have had a baby scan to demand that his husband pick once and for all between him and his baby-mama – Who will Set chose?
