John Paul McQueen is rattled to see Dean back in town
When Dean (Paul Sloss), the ex-boyfriend of PC George Kiss (Callum Kerr) shows up again in Chester, John Paul is immediately worried about what his intentions are.
Courtney Campbell (Amy Conachan) tries to reassure him there’s nothing to worry about but Goldie McQueen (Chelsee Healey) can sense how strong John Paul’s paranoia is.
It’s clear that George enjoys making John Paul feel insecure and later on Dean explains how George’s behaviour made him feel exactly the same way.
When Dean reveals how George reduced him into the obsessive person he is today, it’s clear there are strong parallels between Dean and John Paul and the way George treats them both.
Meanwhile, Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) starts work cleaning at the law firm however things are uncomfortable between him and lawyer Sami Maalik (Rishi Nair) after the ongoing hell that Ste and his far-right cronies subjected the Maalik family to.

James is irritated when Sami starts teasing him and James heads off to Salon De Thé.
However, James is rattled to discover his own mother Marnie (Lysette Anthony) has also hired Ste’s services as a cleaner.
It seems there’s no avoiding Ste!
