Diane Hutchinson is about to find out who the father of her baby is: husband Tony or his late father, scheming Edward!
Diane Hutchinson (Alex Fletcher) has been in a terrible spin ever since discovering she is pregnant. But in tonight’s Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm, (See our TV Guide for full listings), it looks as if she’s going to find out who her baby’s father is.
Will it be her husband Tony (Nick Pickard) or her deceased ex, Edward Hutchinson (Joe McGann)?
Things don’t get off to a good start when Diane finds out her scan, which would reveal the date she conceived, has been cancelled!
Feeling increasingly distressed, she and Tony’s sister Verity (Eva O’Hara) ask for doctor Misbah Maalik’s (Harvey Virdi) help.
Misbah agrees to look over Diane’s records from when she was in a coma and gives them the answer Diane has been so desperate for.
So, who exactly is the father: Tony or Tony’s father, Edward?
Meanwhile Tony has planned a grand romantic surprise for Diane at the Hutch, but how will he react to her baby news?
Elsewhere, Nancy Osborne (Jessica Fox) wants her ex, Darren Osborne (Ashley Taylor Dawson) to get his priorities straight with Charlie Dean (Charlie Behan).
Ella Richardson (Erin Palmer) continues to display signs that she’s struggling so her father Luke Morgan (Gary Lucy) suggests that Mandy takes her away on holiday and Mandy’s sister Cindy (Stephanie Waring) offers to tag along too.
However Mandy has been recently been feeling increasingly insecure about Darren’s growing closenses to Nancy and she confides in Darren’s father, Jack (Jimmy McKenna) that she’s worried about leaving Darren and Nancy alone.
What will Jack advise?
Plus Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) wants to win the award for ‘Dee Valley Businesswoman of the Year’ but she’s angry when she sees some very uncomplimentary reviews online about The Dog.
Later on, and feeling deflated she confides in Goldie (Chelsee Healey) that she feels like a failure because she’s still not pregnant.
Meanwhile, Maxine Minniver (Nikki Sanderson) overhears her mum’s boyfriend Brad King (Tom Benedict Knight) flirting on the phone with someone called ‘Saskia’ and is convinced that he’s cheating on her mum, Trish (Denise Welch).
Are Maxine’s suspicions right?
