Lawyer Sami Maalik wants to join forces with Verity Hutchinson but is it strictly business he's interested in?

Sami Maalik (Rishi Nair) has clearly still got feelings for Verity Hutchinson but is it love or business on his mind in tonight’s episode of Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings)?

In yesterday’s episode lawyer Verity was seen approaching fellow legal eagle James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) with an idea for the two of them to go into partnership but it seems lawyer Sami is also keen for a piece of the action.
