The Maalik family is in terrible danger when Jonny Baxter and Stuart Sumner's hate campaign takes a terrible unexpected turn. Whose life is on the line?
The Maalik family is plunged into crisis in Hollyoaks following the dramatic events of yesterday.
Far Right activists Jonny Baxter (Ray Quinn) and Stuart Sumner (Chris Simmons) had been plotting an attack but things took a terrible unforeseen turn at the last minute putting lives in danger as Sinead O’Connor (Stephanie Davies) and Sami Maalik (Rishi Nair) celebrated their recent engagement with a party at the The Loft.
Vulnerable Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson), who is still unaware that his so called friends Jonny and Stuart have been grooming him all along and is now firmly ensconced in their racist group, is caught up in the middle of the drama and finds himself with some tough, and potentially life-saving, decisions to make!
Meanwhile, Stuart, the mastermind behind the Far Right activities, is plunged into panic as things spiral badly out of control.
He contacts his wife and tells her she needs to “disappear” for a bit and keep their kids safe.
With the undercover police now onto his and Jonny's activities, is it only a matter of time before the law catches up with him, Jonny and Ste and are they facing imminent arrest for their cruel, racist campaigns?
Meanwhile other residents continue their partying at The Loft unaware of what’s happened nearby in the village as they raise a glass to Sinead and Sami. However when news starts filtering back of the terrible event, they race to the scene and it’s all hands on deck to try and save the people in peril.
Whose life is on the line? And are they going to pull through?
Hollyoaks is shown weekdays on C4 at 6.30pm with the next episode following on E4
