It’s the day of the court hearing for Bobby Costello (Jayden Fox) in tonight’s Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings). 

Will he be spending a long time behind bars?

As Bobby awaits his fate and his sentencing, Felix Westwood (Richard Blackwood) who managed to track down Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe), tries to get through to her.

Felix encourages her to release all her pent-up anger by having a boxing session before the court reaches its final verdict. 

Felix tells Mercedes she needs to take some responsibility for Bobby and stop justifying all the crimes that her troubled son has committed.

As viewers know, Bobby was responsible for the deaths of three villagers last year. 

He left his stepdad Sylver McQueen (David Tag) to perish in a fire, he pushed his serial killer granddad Silas Blissett (Jeff Rawle) to his death on an electrified chessboard and he later murdered lawyer Verity Hutchinson (Eva O’Hara) in her office by crushing her with a bookcase.

John Paul McQueen (James Sutton) convinces Goldie, Sylver’s sister, to attend the court hearing.

However Goldie is feeling far from supportive and blames Bobby for the death of her beloved brother Sylver. 

Meanwhile, Mercedes, who fled the village, is encouraged by Felix and turns up in court just in time for Bobby’s verdict.

Is he going to be given a hefty sentence and are there yet more shock revelations in store?
