John Paul, who is the Deputy Head of Hollyoaks High, has been in a downward spiral for the past few weeks and things seem to be going from bad to worse.
His drinking is out of control, and in recent developments, the school caretaker, Prince McQueen (Malique Thompson-Dwyer) was blamed for the stash of hidden booze belonging to John Paul that was discovered in the caretaker’s cupboard.
In yesterday’s episode, it looked as if Prince was about to lose his job but has John Paul admitted that the blame lies with him and not Prince?
