As if things couldn’t get any darker for Sinead O’Connor in Hollyoaks!
Fans of the award-winning Channel 4 soap will know Sinead (Stephanie Davis) has found herself spiralling out of control in a dark underworld of crime since becoming a new mum earlier this year.
Deciding to take her baby Katy and leave her stepmother Dianne’s home and live with drug dealer Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) Sinead found the financial restraints of having a new-born too much to take.
Desperate to remain firmly on her own two feet, Sinead started ‘clipping’ men (pretending to be a prostitute but then robbing them before going through with it) but when she tried tripping the wrong man things went from bad to worse.
Caught red hand by a client called Richie Sinead was then horrified to learn that he was actually a police officer, and even worse still he expected her to take the money and honour their agreement.
Sinead did what he wanted but then, when Ste’s flat was raided by the police, Sinead was faced with her old trick once again and forced to agree to become a mole for him to avoid prosecution for the empty wallets the police found in her room.
And things are going to get even worse as, in an upcoming storyline, Sinead finds herself caught up in the dark dealings of new bad boy on the block, Trevor Royle (Greg Wood).
According to All About Soap Trevor is set to lead the young mum into even more danger when he makes her become an escort for him.
Desperate, Sinead agrees but when Ste finds her sat in the shower breaking her heart over what her life has come to, they devise a plan to get her out of the game by planning to blackmail her next client for enough money to run away.
They set up a camera to capture the moment but things take an unexpected turn when Doug (PJ Brennan) and Tony (Nick Pickard) turn up to take Ste to see his cancer stricken mum.
Sinead goes ahead with the plan but after collecting the money from the client she has blackmailed, Trevor turns up – and isn’t happy at all!
Hollyoaks can be seen weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4 / Channel 4 HD.
