Darren Osborne (Ashley Taylor Dawson) has not been his usual self recently and in tonight’s Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings), friends and family are starting to worry.

In yesterday’s episode Darren forgot to collect his son, Oscar, from school and today he forgets to organise Oscar’s outfit for World Book Day.
