Sami Maalik

Sami Maalik and Ste Hay go head to head as tensions flare over Sami's engagement to Sinead O'Connor. Is an all out fight about to break out?

The rift between Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) and Sinead O’Connor (Stephanie Davies) in Hollyoaks intensifies when Sami Maalik gets involved.

Racist Ste has made it clear he strongly disapproves of Sinead getting engaged to his arch-enemy, Sami (Rishi Nair), and is furious when as result of the fallout, Sinead bans him from seeing his own daughter, Hannah.

As tensions flare, Ste and Sami get into a heated row ahead of the engagement party which is being held at The Loft.

When Sinead discovers the two men have gone head to head, she's initially angry with Sami and tells him he’s sunk to Ste’s level but she feels guilty when Sami explains exactly what he’s had to put up with his whole life and the racist taunts that have dogged him.
