Edward's hatred for his own son continues...

Hollyoaks (opens in new tab) fans were furious after Edward Hutchinson (Joe McGann) found another way to make his son's life hell.

In shocking scenes, Tony (Nick Pickard) was hospitalised after Edward spiked his drink and he suffered a seizure.

Tony made the mistake of extending an olive branch to Edward, inviting his dad along to a lunch.

It was originally planned for just Tony and sister Verity (Eva O'Har), but Edward soon wormed his way in.

As ever, he played the part of the caring father and grandfather but he had much more sinister intentions.

Following Tony's collapse, things got even worse after his brain scan came back.

Diane (Alex Fletcher) tries to comfort husband Tony, explaining that the doctors are trying to work out the reason behind the seizure.

Tony attempted to discharge himself, brushing it off as a "wobble", but Edward stopped him.

He tried to manipulate his son even further, sending Tony for a brain scan and amping up the drama.

In further shocking scenes, Tony is about to receive some devastating health news. (opens in new tab)

Fans are shocked by Edward's cruel treatment of his son, taking to Twitter to vent about the evil father.
