We reported last month how Will Savage was set to take a tumble down the stairs at Chez Chez after admitting having a one night stand with his brothers girlfriend in Hollyoaks, and now reports in the Daily Star newspaper have claimed the fall will leave him paralysed!
Fans of the hit Channel 4 soap will know how Will (James Atherton) took advantage of Texas Longford (Bianca Hendrickse-Spendlove) after she believed that her boyfriend, Dodger (Danny Mac) had been cheating on her.
The pair ended up in bed, despite the fact that Will new that the girl Texas had spotted Dodger with was in actual fact his twin sister, Sienna (Anna Langford), but once Texas discovered the truth, and the fact that Will knew it all along, she could not contain her guilt and so dumped Dodger and headed off to America with best friend Doug (PJ Brennan).
However, Texas is set to return to the village next week in the hit soap, determined to tell Dodger the truth!
Panicked Will is set to reveal the truth to his brother first as part of an elaborate plan to get his family on his side, but when Texas follows him out of the club to confront him over his actions a row erupts between the two and, whilst Texas lunges towards him, Will loses his balance, falls, and lands at the bottom of the staircase in a critical condition.
All the Savage clan rush to his hospital bedside where doctors break the heart-breaking news that Will may never walk again!
A Hollyoaks source told the publication: “Texas writes a letter to Dodger revealing all about her night with Will.
“But she has a change of heart and retrieves the letter. Will feels terrible about everything and can’t live with betraying his brother.
“He grabs the letter from her and starts reading it out. But Texas goes for him and he stumbles backwards down the stairs.
“She can’t believe how badly he is hurt. Will quickly realises something is seriously wrong as he can’t feel his legs. He starts punching them and screams out in desperation, which leaves his family and Texas devastated.”
Following the accident, Dodger is torn about his concerns for his brother but decides in the end that he should see him at the hospital. However when he arrives he walks in on what looks like a very tender moment between Will and Texas and loses his temper somewhat!
He is eventually pulled away from his brother and leaves the hospital heart-broken but soon finds comfort in the arms of Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter)!
