The Minniver sisters are set for a sticky situation in an upcoming storyline in Hollyoaks when the object of both their previous desires returns to the village to play them off against each other, yet again!
Fans of the hit Channel 4 soap will know how last month the already rocky relationship between Mitzeee (Rachel Shenton) and Maxine (Nikki Sanderson) was put to the test when it was discovered that they had both been seeing the same stripper, Tyson.
Realising that they had been played they taught him a lesson he would never forget, tying him almost naked outside nightclub Chez Chez to help promote their new business venture, after which he scurried away, red-faced, never to be seen again. Or so we thought!
Since the incident Maxine and Mitzeee have become closer than ever, and for once it seemed like Mitzeee had finally found someone to look out for her.
This is made even more apparent when, in tonight’s episode of the show, viewers will see Maxine shooing away reporters that Mitzeee has invited round to give her story to exclusively, when it becomes clear that they blood-thirsty tabloid writers are preying on the former socialite’s vulnerability as they begin to press her for information about Riley (Rob Norbury).
However, as the Daily Star newspaper reports, the solidarity between the feisty sisters is not set to last as, after Tyson comes back and sleeps with them both, one of their lives will be changed forever when they discover they are pregnant!
Both sisters are feeling the symptoms of pregnancy so do a test together to put their minds at rest, but, while Maxine’s comes back negative, MITZEEE’S shows that famous blue line!
To make matters worse for Mitzeee, who last year alone was stalked, sent to prison for attempted murder after being framed for the stabbing of Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) then lost the love of her life, her second cousin Riley after he was shot dead by a stray bullet, she soon realises that Tyson might not even be the father!
A show source told the paper: “If Tyson’s not the dad, then who is?”
What will Mitzeee do? We know that Rachel Shenton is leaving the show in a storyline involving an appearance on Eamon Holmes show, Sunrise next month of which she said at the time: “Mitzeee’s final week is not to be missed, especially when she finds herself chatting to the fabulous Mr Holmes.
“I’ve had an amazing two years playing Mitzeee.
“She’s been on an incredible journey that’s not over yet…
“It’s been an absolute privilege to work with the cast and crew that make Hollyoaks such a special place.
“This has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve made, but I feel it’s time for Mitzeee and myself to move onto pastures new.”
Meanwhile the actress has taken to social networking site, Twitter, last week to tease about the upcoming storyline about to rock the Minniver sister’s worlds, tweeting to fans:
