Sally St Claire, who is currently in prison for the murder of George Kiss, is a victim of hate crime in tonight’s episode of Hollyoaks at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings).

In yesterday's episode alarm bells were ringing for her son John Paul (James Sutton) following a phone conversation in which he heard his mum Sally being threatened.

In tonight’s episode, John Paul and Nana McQueen (Diane Langton) go to the hospital where Sally has been taken after being attacked. 

The pair are beside themselves with worry, however doctor Misbah Maalik (Harvey Virdi) tells them they won’t be allowed to see Sally just yet.

Instead, Sally gets a visit from PC Smith (Callum Lill), a colleague of George’s who tells the Hollyoaks High principal, that he won’t make her life in prison comfortable at all and she’ll pay for what she did!

Misbah comes up with a plan to buy Sally some time. 

However Sally later makes a shocking decision and decides she needs to escape and can't stay behind bars for a minute longer.
