John Paul McQueen (James Sutton) is in HUGE trouble in tonight’s Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings).  

Alcoholic John Paul, who is the deputy head of Hollyoaks High was recently responsible for causing a terrible crash. 

John Paul was driving the school minibus and had been drinking when he lost control of the vehicle and it spun off the road and onto its side with pupils on board. 

Pupil Freya (Ellie Henry) took the brunt of the terrible smash and has been left with life-changing injuries.

So far John Paul has managed to hide the fact that he’d been drinking and no one apart from Prince McQueen (Malique Thompson Dwyer) knows his terrible secret.

However, in yesterday’s episode, police officer, Sam Chen-Williams (Matthew McGivern) recovered pupil Charlie Dean’s (Charlie Behan) belongings from the crash, including Charlie’s mobile phone.

Tonight, Prince and John Paul discover that Charlie’s phone has footage of the crash that will incriminate John Paul. 

Can John Paul get to the phone and erase the footage before anyone else sees it? 

Or is someone about to make the terrible discovery and find out that the crash was all John Paul’s fault?
