Racist Ste Hay is disgusted when he discovers Sinead O'Connor is set to marry Sami Maalik. What will he do to try and stop her?
Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) seed red in Hollyoaks when he discovers that Sinead O’Connor (Stephanie Davies) is engaged to Sami Maalik.
Ste, who has been groomed to be part of Jonny Baxter and Stuart Sumner’s Far Right organisation, can’t believe it when he discovers Sinead, the mother of this daughter Hannah, will be tying the knot with lawyer Sami (Rishi Nair) who has previously been the target of racist thugs, Jonny (Ray Quinn) and Stuart (Chris Simmons). How far will Ste go to try and stop Sinead from going ahead with any wedding plans?
Meanwhile Sinead continues to be upset by her brother Finn O'Connor's recent release from prison. Sinead packed her bags when she discovered convicted rapist Finn (Keith Rice), was coming to live at the family home. Since then she’s barely been on speaking terms with her mum Diane (Alex Fletcher) who has taken Finn under her wing.
So Diane also gets a big shock to learn that Sinead has hastily got engaged to Sami and only finds out when Sami’s half-brother Azim, tries to book The Hutch for the engagement party. When Diane tries to speak to her daughter, Sinead tells her mum that she doesn’t want her involved in her life at all until Finn is gone for good. What will Diane do?
Elsewhere, Bobby Costello tries to cheer up his mum, Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) by surprising her with a special beach he’s made on The Dog patio.
Mercedes is delighted with the surprise and the two of them have great fun together.
Beaming from ear to ear, Mercedes tells Bobby that she’s always happiest when she’s spending time with him.
However, she feels terrible when that prompts Bobby to ask why she hasn’t had a baby yet with Sylver. What explanation will Mercedes, who has been cheating on Sylver with Liam Donovan and recently had a secret abortion, give to her little boy?
Hollyoaks is shown weekdays on C4 at 6.30pm with the next episode following on E4
