John Paul McQueen and James Nightingale

James Nightingale and John Paul McQueen meet up and rake over John Paul's situation. Is John Paul ready to confront his rapist Finn O' Connor?

James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) is shocked when he comes face to face with John Paul McQueen (James Sutton) in tonight’s Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings).

John Paul made a surprise return to Chester in yesterday’s episode after being told by his mum Sally St Claire (Annie Wallace) and scheming Edward Hutchinson (Joe McGann) that there was an emergency in the village and they urgently needed his help.

John Paul, who’s been living and working in Singapore, jetted back to Chester only to discover Sally and Edward have teamed up to try and get rid of convicted rapist Finn O’Connor (Keith Rice) and were urging him to get on board with their plan.

Years ago, former Hollyoaks High teacher John Paul, was terrorised by homophobic pupil Finn whose vile bullying culminated with him hitting John Paul on the head and raping him.
