Liam Connor's affair with Carla Connor was actually over at this point. But Carla's fiancé Tony Gordon (Gray O'Brien) didn't believe it. He whisked Carla, Liam (Rob James Collier) and his wife Maria off to a flash hotel, sent the girls off to the spa, then took Liam for a walk… to some underground caves. They got separated from the other tourists and Liam found himself standing on the edge of a precipice with a huge drop below. Tony put his hand on Liam's shoulder… was he planning to push?

Bianca Jackson (Patsy Palmer) gave up waiting for Tony King (Chris Coghill) to propose so asked him to marry her, in front of all the family. Tony, creep that he was, said "Yeah, Yea, why not?" Bianca's stepdaughter Whitney (Shona McGarty) knew exactly why not, Tony had been sleeping with her but she was now too grown up so he'd lost interest. And, to add insult to injury, he used the money Whitney had saved for them to run away together to buy Bianca a ring!

Marlon Dingle got into a fight at the police fundraising ball and was chucked out, leaving his wife Donna (Verity Rushworth) to enjoy the rest of the night without him. And enjoy it she did - in the arms and bed of Ross Kirk (Samuel Anderson). Both were unaware that colleague Shane was outside the room, a knowing smile on his face. Would Donna and Ross regret their night of passion?

Hollyoaks - 10 Years Ago in the Soaps

Mercedes McQueen, Hollyoaks

Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) had fallen for Malachy Fisher (Glen Wallace) big time but he was keeping a secret from her - and it was huge! He tried to do the decent thing and steer clear of her, but when she told him she loved him he said he loved her too and they fell into bed. It was only later he confessed he was HIV positive and could have infected her – and Mercedes understandably thumped him!
