Hollyoaks spoilers: A desperate Sinead O’Connor seeks help from lawyer Sami Maalik

Sinead O'Connor

A panicking Sinead O'Connor turns to her lawyer ex, Sami Maalik for help in fighting Laurie

Sinead O’Connor (Stephanie Davis) has previously lied to the police about the first night that her husband Laurie Shelby (Kyle Pryor) raped her.

She told the cops the sexual assault happened on April 1 as she thought her account would have more credibility, however she realises she has now made a terrible mistake and it looks like her deception over the dates will be her undoing.

In a panic, desperate Sinead goes to see lawyer Sami Maalik, who she once had a fling with, and tells him about the terrible mess she has now got herself into. Will Sami (Rishi Nair) advise her to tell the police the truth, in which case they will want to know why she previously lied, or will he advise her to stick to her account?

James Nightingale and Harry Thompson

Elsewhere, Harry Thompson (Parry Glasspool) is livid when he discovers that his boyfriend James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) has been disloyal. What exactly has lawyer James done to upset him now?

Plus Nancy Osborne (Jessica Fox), who has always been convinced that her colleague and boss, deputy head Laurie, is innocent of Sienna and Sinead accusations, starts to have doubts.

Worried Nancy feels sick with anxiety when she begins to waver and starts questioning her own judgement. Has she too been duped by manipulative Laurie?
