James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) finds himself in a difficult situation in tonight’s Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings). 

Earlier on, things go from bad to worse when his sister, Juliet Nightingale (Niamh Blackshaw) and her girlfriend, Peri Lomax (Ruby O’Donnell) are approached in the park by a stranger called Mikey who seems to know a lot more about the two of them than he should. 

As more revelations come to light, it seems the shocking extent of project Bluebird - the CCTV system set up by Timmy Simmons (Sam Tutty)  to spy on women- is finally about to be exposed.

Meanwhile, Dee Valley Law is sponsoring a hospital ball to celebrate medical staff and Ali Shahzad (Raji James) is being commended for his latest research grant.

Someone needs to make the introductory speech for Ali at the awards and his son, Shaq Qureshi (Omar Malik) is adamant that it should be his mother Misbah (Harvey Virdi) who does it.

However, will doctor Misbah, who has a very tangled past with Ali, be able to stick to the script?
