A summer romance looks set to blossom between these two Hollyoaks favourites who have both suffered plenty of heartache in the past...

The sparks of attraction are flying between Peri Lomax and Prince McQueen next week in Hollyoaks when the two of them end up working together.

The teens are initially thrust together when they both work at Tom Cunningham’s holiday kids club, Tom’s Turtles.

Prince McQueen

Prince has fun working for Tom's holiday club and flirting with Peri

Romeo Quinn (Owen Warner) and his mate Prince McQueen (Malique Thompson-Dywer) have offered their services to work with the children, along with Peri Lomax (Ruby O’Donell) and Yazz Maalik (Haeisha Mistry).

Tom Cunningham

Peri and club boss, Tom, kick off the fun

As the club is officially launched, the teens have a great time acting as club leaders and mucking about in the great outdoors, especially Peri and Prince who, as well as looking after the kids, enjoy some serious flirting together.

Sadly Prince's days at the club are short-lived when he gets on the wrong side of boss, Tom (Ellis Hollins) and promptly quits.

Instead he ends up working at Price Slice where store boss Walter Deveraux (Trevor A Toussaint) notices that Prince, who was married and then estranged from Lily Drinkwell who tragically died earlier this year, has a soft spot for Peri.

Walter encourages Prince to ask her out and after a bit of a pep talk, Prince decides to take the plunge.


Peri previously had a relationship with Tom and together they have a daughter, Steph

As Walter continues to play match-maker for the young couple, will Peri agree to a date with Prince? And could this be the start of a sizzling summer romance for the teens who, when it comes to relationships, have both had more than their fare share of heartache?

Hollyoaks is shown weekdays on C4 at 6.30pm with the next episode following on E4
