James Nightingale

James Nightingale blames himself for Jesse's death and is starting to crack as Jesse's funeral looms. Is he about to blab?

James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) has been in a terrible state ever since he and Grace Black (Tamara Wall) shot Mercedes McQueen.

In tonight’s episode of Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings) he’s blind-sided when Courtney (Amy Conachan) asks if he’ll be coming to Jesse Donovan’s funeral the next day.
