It’s Christmastime in Hollyoaks, which means there’s bound to be plenty of secrets and lies coming out. Some of the locals gather at Hutchinson’s place for a slap-up Crimbo dinner, but given Sinead’s insecurity over new boyfriend Tony – and the fact she’s sitting on a whopper of a secret – will there be tears before bedtime? An altogether happier John Paul and Ste celebrate their upcoming nuptials with a joint stag do, complete with a 90s theme, and both grooms turn up as Ginger Spice. But after plenty of laughs have been had, events soon take a surprise turn and John Paul and Lockie end up on the run from the police… So with JP missing, and Ste struggling to resist temptation at every corner, will there even be a wedding? And there’s plenty drama at the Roscoes’ too, as Sandy returns to the news that Freddie is being investigated for murder, Robbie breaks up with Phoebe, and Jason’s eating disorder takes a turn for the worse.
