Hollyoaks are set to see an even more manipulative side to Will Savage in the New Year when he confesses to his one-night stand with his brother, Dodger’s girlfriend, Texas Longford.
Fans of the hit Channel4 soap will know how last month, believing Dodger (Danny Mac) was cheating on her, Texas (Bianca Hendrickse-Spendlove) turned to Dodger’s brother Will (James Atherton) for comfort, which resulted in the two sleeping with each other.
However, unbeknown to her, the other woman Texas had seen Dodger with was in fact his long-lost twin sister, a fact which Will was well aware of, and, despite trying to make a go of it with Dodger, Texas was so overcome with guilt that she left for a new life in America.
Texas wrote a letter to Dodger explaining why she couldn’t be with him which got misplaced meaning that a heartbroken Dodger, who was planning to propose to Texas before she left, was left blissfully unaware of the one-night-stand.
However, all this is about to change when, in January, Texas returns to the village but before she has a chance to tell Dodger what happened herself, Will reveals the affair to his brother, along with an elaborate lie to keep him from getting the blame, according to Inside Soap magazine.
Will is set to eventually confess to the affair publicly during a speech at a party to celebrate his father Dirk’s (David Kennedy) engagement to Myra McQueen (Nicole Barber-Lane).
“Hollyoaks fans will be shocked to the core by Will’s behaviour,” a soap source told the publication.
“His plan is reckless, and life for Texas may never be the same.”
