Ever since accepting her job behind the bar at the Dog in the Pond in Hollyoaks, Sienna Blake has been scheming to come between her bosses, Darren and Nancy Osborne, and now it would seem she is about to get her way!
Fans of the award-winning Channel 4 soap will know how Sienna (Anna Passey) deliberately set fire to the flat above the pub in a bid to make Nancy (Jessica Fox), who to be fair was passed out from her addictive painkiller fix, look like a bad mum.
Horrified by the extent of his wife’s problem and lies, Darren (Ashley Taylor-Dawson) made the sensible, yet heart-breaking decision to ask her to leave, much to Sienna’s delight.
However, her joy was short lived when Daren received a call letting him know that Nancy’s mother had been killed in a car crash overseas, which made him put things into perspective and agree to try again when she got back from the funeral.
However, on her way out Nancy spots Darren’s wedding ring on the kitchen worktop and realises that he was about to ask for a divorce before they found out about her mother’s accident, and so leaves under a storm cloud declaring their marriage well and truly over.
Now, with Nancy absent and having asked her to move in to help look after Darren while she is away, Sienna ups her game in a bid to replace Nancy in the eyes of her family.
Her first act as stand in sees Sienna introducing herself as Darren’s wife at a hospital appointment for Oscar. Whilst there she uses her influence to make a decision that she knows Nancy would not approve of with regards to Oscar’s health care.
Despite knowing that Nancy had reservations about cochlear implants, Darren agrees with Sienna and allows the tot to have them fitted.
later on, and overcome with gratitude for her support, Darren leans in for a kiss…
However, whilst most of the Osborne’s are oblivious to Sienna’s manipulative ways, Tom Cunningham is growing increasingly suspicious of her constant attention to Darren, but can he warn him before it is too late?
Hollyoaks can be seen weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4 / Channel 4 HD.
