Last year, Ste became caught up in huge drama as he became involved with a racist gang alongside Jonny Baxter and Stuart Summer. But after the dramatic death of Stuart, Ste was able to leave the gang and walk free.

Ste’s departure saw him leaving the village to stay with a friend in Newcastle, and get his head together after a traumatic 12 months being caught up in the dangerous far-right gang.

The last scene saw Ste leaving in a taxi, and viewers haven’t seen him again since November.

However, with news that he’ll be returning we can't to see what Ste will get up to next - no doubt there is plenty more drama to come.
