Fans of Hollyoaks will be pleased to know that two of its broken hearted residents may be about to find happiness with each other!
Doug Carter (PJ Brennan) has been a broken man ever since giving up his one true love, and husband, Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) when he realised that his heart really belonged to his ex, Brendan Brady (Emmett J Scanlan).
After trying to start a new life in America, Doug decided to face the Hollyoaks music with a stiff upper lip to continue building the business that he and Ste had started, despite being obviously heartbroken at seeing Ste and Brendan playing happy families under his nose.
However, a welcome distraction revealed itself in the form of John Paul McQueen (James Sutton) when he returned having split up with his long-term boyfriend, Craig. The pair soon became close, but Doug felt the bitter taste of rejection once again when John Paul turned down his advances.
Despite this the pair developed a friendship and after spending more time together in an upcoming storyline it seems that perhaps Doug will get the man after all when a drunken adventure results in a kiss…..
Doug and John Paul get drunk together and in their giggly state decide to play a prank on new sixth form headmaster, Patrick Blake (Jeremy Sheffield) by sticking hundreds of post it notes over his car.
Unaware that the whole incident has been filmed by Callum Kane (Laurie Duncan) and new friend, Robbie Roscoe, the pair are oblivious to the consequences this act may carry.
However, the prank is the farthest thing from either of their minds as their flirty behaviour leads to a kiss, and a trip back to Doug’s…
The net morning the pair wake up with no regrets, and it seems like there may be a chance of real romance for the pair, but little do they know that Robbie is about to post the pictures he took of their prank meaning that John Paul could be in serious trouble at work
Watch all the drama unfold in Hollyoaks on Thursday, April 4 at 6.30pm on Channel 4.
