Freddie Roscoe is about to find himself in a bit of hot water in Hollyoaks when precisely the worst person in the world discovers about his relationship with Lindsey Butterfield!
Fans of the award-winning Channel 4 soap will know how Freddie (Charlie Clapham) has been secretly (well, not that secretly) in love with his big brother’s fiancée, Lindsey (Sophie Austin) since the first moment he laid eyes on her.
Since Freddie believes that Joe (Ayden Callaghan) is dead and has told Lindsey that he has run off with another woman, it has left the pathway rather clear for him to act on his feelings for the junior doctor (apart from the little matter of his grieving wife, that is), and soon the pair are kissing yet again!
Lindsey turns to best pal Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) for guidance over what to do next, and is urged by the village Dixon to go for it with Fred.
However, when Lindsey returns back to inform Freddie of this, the entire conversation is not only listened to, but recorded by Freddie’s evil gangster stepfather, Fraser Black (Jesse Birdsall) who then decides to use the information to blackmail Freddie!
Fraser approached Freddie and alerts him to the explosive evidence he has in his possession, and tells Freddie that he will expose the affair to the rest of the Roscoe clan unless he finds the missing accounts book.
You will remember that Freddie gave Joe the account book just before his wedding to Sinead (Stephanie Davis) and that Joe appeared to have it on him when he was crushed by the wrecking ball, so will Freddie even be able to find the book, and if he does, will he just hand it over?
That is not the only thing that Freddie and Lindsey have to worry about – Joe is about to wake up…. If you want to know more about that then click here!
