Sorry - not watched since the great wedding carnage as have been a bit all over the shop so could someone help.me...

There's a new baby at the McQueens?
Will is in a wheelchair?
Ste & Brendon are together - where's Doug?

and of course al the other gripping bits I've missed grin

Skillbo Fri 01-Feb-13 21:21:55

C'mon - I know you're out there, H'Oaks fans grin

Ameybee Fri 01-Feb-13 21:24:50

Baby is John Paul's and his boyfriends (well clearly not the egg!)!

Will threw himself down the stairs after confessing about him & Texas shagging (but he's made Texas thing she pushed him).

Doug gave ste a chance to go to Brendan and he did!! X

TimothyClaypoleLover Fri 01-Feb-13 21:28:31

Oh I hope nasty Will gets found out. He gives me the creeps.

And the whole Esther thing is really sad, I hope the bullies get what they deserve.

Hollyoaks is my guilty pleasure!

Newyearoldmum Fri 01-Feb-13 21:30:27

I haven't seen it for a while either - pesky life getting in the way lol. What's happening with the Esther/bullying storyline? Are they going to be found out?

TimothyClaypoleLover Fri 01-Feb-13 21:32:56

Esther tried to kill herself and now needs new kidney and liver. Ruby/Sinead still being vile to her. No sign of bullies getting caught but surely they must do.

LovesGSD Fri 01-Feb-13 22:06:44

I stopped watching years ago but have started again every now and then, what relation is Ruby to Jack and Frankie? what happened to Max and OB? (yes it's been that long lol)

TimothyClaypoleLover Fri 01-Feb-13 23:11:17

I always thought that Ruby was Neville and Suzanne's niece as Duncan (her brother) used to live with the Ashworths. So not sure how Ruby ended up with Jack and Frankie.

Max died on his wedding day to Steph - one of the saddest episodes ever! OB moved to London with posh acting girlfriend.

Skillbo Fri 01-Feb-13 23:36:43

I can help with Ruby... When Suzanne & Nev split up and went their separate ways,Duncan moved in with Darren and then they both moved in with Frankie & Jack and then Ruby ran away from home and found Duncan and F & J took her in. When Duncan left, they told her to stay although am sure they won't once it comes out about poor Esther.

I also hope the bullies get their comeupance (is that a word) as it really wasn't Esther's fault... Bart is a tool but then so is Sinead (am probably just wishing i was that young again!)

and Will is creepy and the whole stairs thing would explain the look on his face when they slow-clapped Texas.. surely she knows she didn't do it?

Skillbo Fri 01-Feb-13 23:39:25

And sad for Ste & Doug as D clearly way better for him (Brendon is just odd and i know that's how he's supposed to be but I'm just not a fan of his character at all!)

TimothyClaypoleLover Fri 01-Feb-13 23:42:46

Oh I am loving Brendan and his moustache! And now its all coming out about his dad it explains so much about his character and I actually feel sorry for him and like him.

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 01-Feb-13 23:43:55

Will threw himself down the stairs ? Wowsers, I must have glanced away, as I totally missed that bit then! So I guess it's only him and the viewer that know that?

I hate Sinead, can I say that? Horrid character, and it irks me that such a dreadful, thick-as-mince portrayal is meant to be the bright one. Really, you've got a full scholarship to vet school? Hope she gets found out and loses it. It'll be almost as good as when the van door splatted Maddie.

I love Hollyoaks. I even sort of love Brendan when I shouldn't and feel sorry for him because of his dad.

Will is a creepy fucker. He has a twisted mind tbh

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 01-Feb-13 23:44:59

So the Brendan/Ste/Doug/Walker story is going to kick off again, isn;t it? Walker is back, and out for revenge... Suspect that he'll get Doug to help off Brendan?

Hazel I did a inside cheer when the door landed on her after she left Neil and wouldn't help him out of the van

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 01-Feb-13 23:46:04

Ooh, so obvs John Paul will have to get it on with one of the above. Doug I guess.

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 01-Feb-13 23:47:12

Sp - we share the same taste in quality telly, don't we.
The bitch deserved to die after ignoring poor Neil. I really hoped he'd been magically blown into a soft corn field, from where he would be rescued sad

Walker seems to have got his son involved and has got him to work for Brendan. Brendan and JP had a night together in Ireland.

Doug is the inky other gay so JP doesn't have much choice grin

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 01-Feb-13 23:49:06

Or... I have just googled HO spoilers... shall I post one here?

Hazel I love Hollyoaks. I have no idea why because it is so ott and unrealistic.

I cried when Jackie had to hold Rhys as he died and she couldn't tell him he was dying. Though he was a dick it was sad.

<i need a life>

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 01-Feb-13 23:55:00

I bloody love Jackie. She has had the shittest life, and she's the nice one out of the bunch and it all goes wrong for her. And Rhys - she loved him and she had no idea that he wanted to run off with Cindy, AND had got that little scrubber pregnant*. I cried too.

* Skillbo - Jackie etc now know that Rhys is the father, but they agreed to keep it secret, for Bart's sake. But he's run off now too (not sure if forever, or just for plotline), and there has been no mention of it all since.

TimothyClaypoleLover Fri 01-Feb-13 23:56:13

I think its quite refreshing though that there are 8 gay characters, much higher ratio than the other soaps.

Oh hope Walker doesn't get his revenge, want to see Brendan and Ste ride off into the sunset.

Skillbo Sat 02-Feb-13 00:22:52

Hazel - Sinead is pregnant with Rhys' baby???

How can people NOT love this programme?

Skillbo Sat 02-Feb-13 00:26:55

Am actually not holding my breath about the bullies because they don't always end things very well in Hollyoaks village. For example, i always wanted it to come out that Rhys (him againgrin ) spiked his brothers drink.which caused Josh to drive drunk, cause a crash, become a bit of a lush and basically wreck his life.. with Rhys dead, that's never going to happen!!

KatoPotato Sat 02-Feb-13 00:29:09

It's my remaining guilty pleasure. Marking place!

HazeltheMcWitch Sat 02-Feb-13 00:35:47

Hmm, TimothyClaypoleLover - methinks I may share 2 televisual loves with you...

CrazyRandomHappenstance Sat 02-Feb-13 09:27:30

The baby is Mathew, John-Paul and Craigs son, i kind of hope Craig comes back, even if just to see the baby, because JP and Craig were an amazing couple, but i think JP's new love interest is the new head teacher.

Orenishii Sat 02-Feb-13 09:55:37

Bart was just awful - awful, awful, awful. I don't know how any of them could have kept up the illogical blaming of esther for the crash - she wasn't even driving so how did they come up with that one? I really hope Sinead loses her place at vet school (hahaha!) and Ruby gets her comeuppance somehow. I seem to remember in media studies, in the land of soaps the baddies always have to get their dues...it's like the law of soap writing because otherwise the soap risks alienating its audience. It almost always happens, in some form or another, so fingers crossed!

Agree about Jacqui being such a lovely character - she was the one that helped out the super annoying Becca after she went to prison for having an affair with her pupil.

I don't remember Duncan AT ALL. I have no recollection of Ruby appearing - just one day she was, with her gorgeous hair and lips and annoying voice.

HazeltheMcWitch Sat 02-Feb-13 10:56:23

Duncan was a tubby comedy character. He had a curly-haired friend (whose dad was sick with MS, and he was forced into a carer role), and they were kinda the new Max and OB for a bit.

Right, are we doing spoilers/future plotlines?

HazeltheMcWitch Sat 02-Feb-13 10:58:17

Oh, JP and the head teacher? That would be a ridiculously pretty couple. Agree with TCL that it's good that that they have all the gay couples, and that their sexuality is no longer the plot; it's just 2 people, getting together.

Skillbo Sat 02-Feb-13 17:28:46

I'm up for spoilers grin

Orenishii Sat 02-Feb-13 17:47:48

hazel ahhhh right...but isn't Ruby mixed race, or at least very light skinned? Are they siblings? Am so confused. I shouldn't be as my own husband is mixed race, with two white half brothers!

Skillbo Sun 03-Feb-13 22:37:27

Both Duncan & Ruby said they had the same.parents but perhaps they're adopted or fostered - they both said they were treated like shit by them which is why they both legged it to Hollyoaks, which.Ian of.course centre of the universe wink Why oh why don't more people leave... i mean, none if them even go to uni anywhere else because a qualification from the community college is definitely as good!!

FaceLikeAPickledOnion Sun 03-Feb-13 23:13:10

Hollyoaks is underrated and the best soap EVER imo. Give me a warning before spoilers please, I like storylines to be a surprise.
I have cried and laughed more times at hollyoaks than any other soap.
Duncan was ace, always used to make me smile.
Oh and I'm 32, but have got a bit of a thing for Jack blush but frankie does my head in, grrr.
I love Brendan, Myra, Jackie, Cheryl (I want to be her mate!)

Lighthousekeeping Tue 05-Feb-13 00:55:41

Oh, how distressing has the bullying storyline been? I must admit to fastforwarding when I see that Dodgers family.

light I hope the bullies get what they deserve. Don't fully understand why Esther got it all when it was Bart who was driving and he was the one who didn't want to help.

Hope Will leaves. He creeps me out. There's something very weird about him

MySweetPrince Tue 05-Feb-13 13:41:13

Will turned a bit wierd after he had been to interview Silas for an essay he was writing. He was always the nice, nerdy character until then. Then Silas escaped from the psychiatric hospital and was last seen getting on a bus with a load of hen party girls. The Silas storyline then just dries up, maybe there is a link between Will's behavaviour and Silas's disappearance?

Will might end up killing Dodger out of jealousy shock

I hope it comes out that Texas didn't push him.

Lighthousekeeping Tue 05-Feb-13 14:31:13

Oh I never knew she didn't push him. I must've blinked. Is dodger now on with the blonde MacQueen.

Orenishii Wed 06-Feb-13 15:55:26

I know it's sad and everything, but I can't help laughing at Esther's jaundice make up.
