Sid Sumner resorts to desperate measures much to the alarm of Juliet Quinn and her brother Romeo....

Sid Sumner (Billy Price) finds himself in hot water in tonight’s Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings).

Sid has been struggling ever since he pushed his far right extremist father Stuart (Chris Simmons) to his death when he saw him about to murder Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson).

Sid was desperate to put an end to his dad’s abuse and ran at Stuart hoping to stop him from killing Ste, however in his bungled attempt to save Ste, he accidentally shoved his father from the cliff-top and racist Stuart was seen plunging to his death.

Stuart’s accomplice Jonny Baxter (Ray Quinn) was then left to face the music and was seen being bundled away by the police who arrested him.
