Scheming Sienna Blake’s web of lies is about to unravel in Hollyoaks when her baby secret is exposed!
Fans of the award-winning Channel 4 soap will know Sienna (Anna Passey) has been systematically trying to take over show favourite Nancy Osborn’s life, having already pinched her husband, claiming that she is pregnant with his baby, and her family after having Nancy (Jessica Fox)falsely put away for assault and child abduction.
However, following the disappearances of young Tom Cunningham, who fans will know had discovered that Sienna is not actually pregnant at all, her new man Darren (Ashley Taylor-Dawson) has made Sienna retract her statement to the police to have Nancy released from her secure ward in hope that her return will convince Tom to come home.
Next week will see Nancy’s release and the rightful alpha-female of the family sets about holding a fundraiser to help pay for a private detective to look find Tom.
Jessica Fox, who plays’ Nancy has been explaining her comeback to All About Soap magazine:
“Sienna wants thanks for retracting her statement to the police and Nancy does so through gritted teeth – she’s decided to play that witch at her own game.
“[Sienna’s] a little bit frightened. Nancy being together and on top of everything is much more threatening. There’s a moment at the fundraiser where Nancy leans in and says to Sienna, ‘You should have got rid of me when you had the chance’.
“She won’t stop until she’s proved Sienna is behind it all.”
But Nancy could be the least of Sienna’s worries as, after seeing an opportunity to get away with her fake pregnancy, she ends up being blackmailed.
John Paul McQueen’s (James Sutton) baby mama, Chloe (Susan Loughnane) returns to the soap, pregnant again and preparing to sell the baby to the highest bid.
Sienna sees this as the answer to all her prayers and offers to pay her double the price she has already agreed on with the original couple she is carrying the child for, but when Chloe realises how desperate Sienna is to keep her secret quiet she starts demanding much, much more – £5,000 more to be precise.
And when the money raised at Tom’s fundraiser it becomes clear that one of the women has taken it, but which one?
Elsewhere and Lindsey Butterfield (Sophie Austin) is forced to end her relationship with Joe Roscoe (Ayden Callaghan) next week when he grows suspicious of her movements, trying to cover up the murder of Dr Browning (Joseph Thompson).
Joe is getting worried over his fiancée’s repeated disappearing act and decides to follow her. Unfortunately for her this happens as she and Cindy (Stephanie Waring) are trying to dispose of Browning’s body and, after a confrontation between her and Joe arouses a watching police officer’s attention, Lindsey is forced to tell the love her life that she has been sleeping with someone else to cover her tracks.
Of course we all know that this isn’t true, but hurt and wounded Joe slinks off, only to find comfort in the arms of another woman – Nancy!
Hollyoaks can be seen week nights at 6.30pm on Channel 4 / Channel 4 HD.
