We knew it wouldn’t be long before poor Maxine Minniver got to see Patrick Blake’s true colours, and it seems we were right!
Fans of the award-winning Channel 4 soap will know how, after manipulating quite a few situations to get Maxine’s (Nicki Sanderson) attention, and subsequent affection, Patrick (Jeremy Sheffield) finally made a public declaration of love towards her, much to the disgust of his daughter, Sienna (Anna Passey).
Now blissfully happy at being in a relationship with the sixth form headmaster, Maxine is about to fall prey to his controlling ways again.
Having been promoted to the new College Coffee manager, Maxine gets a bit carried away with the role, which causes George Smith (Stephen Roberts) to quit his job there, fed up with her power-trip, and Patrick takes delight in mocking Maxine’s failures as a manager.
Maxine is left hurt by Patrick’s nastiness, but Patrick soon has to change his tune when, after the venue he has organised for an event he is hosting falls through, he needs Maxine’s help.
Maxine allows the event to be held at the coffee shop, and things seem to be going well. That is until she tries to dance with Patrick in front of all his guests.
Later on when they are alone, Patrick furiously grabs Maxine’s arm and warns her never to embarrass him like that again.
But that’s not all Patrick has to worry about, as viewers will see a return of the Savage/Blake kids mum, Anna (Saskia Wickham) later this month.
Anna is already far from Patrick’s biggest fan, but when she finds out that he gave Dodger (Danny Mac) a false alibi, she pays the head teacher a visit, accusing him of Texas’ murder and vowing to get revenge for her son!
Hollyoaks can be seen week nights at 6.30pm on Channel 4 / Channel 4 HD.
