As concern for missing Ella grows, Mandy Richardson (Sarah Jayne Dunn) has a panic attack in tonight’s Hollyoaks at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings).   

Ella (Erin Palmer) has only been back in the village for a few days and she’s already upped sticks and left.

Following last week’s verdict over the murder of drug dealer Jordan Price, Ella returned to Hollyoaks but after all that’s happened, she was never going to come back to find the bunting up. 

Nancy (Jessica Fox) and Darren (Ashley Taylor Dawson) banned Ella from seeing Charlie, who took the rap for the crime and very nearly went down for it. 

Mandy didn’t like to tell Ella that she was forbidden from seeing her friend, so she asked Charlie to meet her daughter in secret. But when Ella discovered the truth, she was fuming and ended up having a furious row with her mum. 

After clearing out the till at The Hutch, Ella ran off and hasn’t been seen since, so the search is on to find the missing teen. 

When Darren, Nancy and Jack (Jimmy McKenna) realise that Ella has stolen money from The Hutch, a worried Mandy pleads with them not to tell the police, but the stress gets too much for her, and she ends up having a panic attack.

With the help of some food colouring, she tells Sienna (Anna Passey) that Brody has come back to attack her and reveals it isn’t the first time he’s been violent with her. Meanwhile, Damon Kinsella (Jacob Roberts) touches a nerve with Sienna when he questions where her loyalties lie…
