As we reported earlier this month, things are set to take an unexpected twist in the wedding plans for Hollyoaks Will Savage and Texas Longford when Maid of Honour, and wedding planner, Leanne Holiday makes a play for the groom – and now we have the moment she does in picture form!
Fans of the hit Channel 4 soap will know how Will (James Atherton) has been manipulating Texas (Bianca Hendrickse-Spendlove) into being with him ever since he slept with her behind his brother Dodger’s (Danny Mac) back.
After outing their one-night-stand in front of all their friends and family, Will then deliberately threw himself down the stairs outside Chez Chez, letting Texas believe it was her fault.
Since then he has used his silence with the police as a tool in a wicked emotional blackmail game which has seen him manage to get Texas to agree to marry him, whilst fitting her with hidden cameras and documenting her every move without her knowledge.
Many were surprised about the pairing, let alone the engagement, so we were all hoping that the news that Texas’ best friend, Leanne (Jessica Forrest) was about to discover Will’s stalker handbook and shoebox full of CCTV footage and DVD recordings of Texas, would finally bring an end to this situation.
However, that isn’t exactly how things turn out as, after originally being angry at the discovery, Leanne confronts Will, who manages to convince her that is only keeping tabs on Texas because he loves her so much.
Leanne fell for this hook line and sinker, but that’s not the only thing she falls for!
Will’s actions, now considered deeply romantic, remind Leanne of how she felt about Lee, and comes to the conclusion that she has feelings for will too, and tries to kiss him.
Will originally saw this as leverage, and turned his master manipulation against Leanne, making her feel awful about her betrayal, but things are set to take a detour next week, when they find themselves alone again during the joint hen and stag do, but this time he kisses her back!
Will responds to Leanne’s advances in a brief and passionate moment outside the Dog in the Pond, in a bid to keep her quite about the stalking, but unbeknown to him, the whole things has been witnessed by Texas herself, All About Soap reports!
Faced with the ultimate betrayal, Texas turns to Dodger for comfort, where she reveals that it has always been him that she really wants, but when Will continues watching her through CCTV surveillance and catches her climbing into the back of dodger’s van, he fears the worst.
Texas, who is secretly relieved to have an excuse to break up with Will, attempts to leave him, but after he begs her for forgiveness and then claims that he has a life threatening aneurism, her guilt starts to take over once more.
Is Will actually dying? And Will Texas go ahead with the wedding? And does this situation lead to her murder on the morning of her wedding? Keep watching Hollyoaks to find out!
