Following the massive explosion that claims five Hollyoaks lives, Maxine Minniver is devastated to realise that she is pregnant with the baby of one victim from the might be already dead list!
Unfortunately the father, dead or alive, also happens to be the son of her partner, Patrick (Jeremy Sheffield) so Maxine (Nicki Sanderson) feels she has no other option but to have the pregnancy terminated.
Fans of the award-winning Channel 4 soap will know how Maxine and Dodger (Danny Mac) had a one night stand last month when she had split with his dad briefly.
However Maxine and Patrick have kissed and made up, and Dodger can be seen looking in a very bad way in tonight’s episode after his brother Will (James Atherton) leaves him to rot away in the rubble caused by the explosion.
With all that in mind, Maxine heads off to the clinic to have an abortion, but when Patrick later finds an after care leaflet he realises what she has done and decides to punish her.
Knowing how much pain she must be in he offers for them to look after baby Oscar for the day, but his plan backfires when he later finds Maxine unconscious on the floor in scenes to be shown next Tuesday.
Meanwhile Vincent (John Omole) is back from the retreat to help gay people be straight, claiming to be cured and declaring his love for Phoebe (Mandip Gill), but he has competition!
Whilst Phoebe and George (Stephen Roberts) discuss recent tragic events, an inappropriate joke made by Robbie Roscoe (Charlie Wernham) has Phoebe seeing red and lashing out at him.
But when Robbie is quick to forgive and forget when she later apologises for the incident, his family get the impression that he is quite keen on her.
His twin brother Jason (Alfie Sykes-Brown) teases him about his feelings, but it doesn’t put Robbie off as he heads of to the McQueen house to ask her out…
Hollyoaks can be seen week nights at 6.30pm on Channel 4 / Channel 4 HD.
