So Sinead’s back on the game, and Jack Osborne is her first client (what the?!). But if you thought that was shocking, this is just the start of another crazy week for Chester’s teen tearaway.
Desperate to recoup her missing cash to pay her solicitor, Sinead went against Freddie’s wishes and asked resident pimp Trevor to hook her up with a some work (of the prostituting variety).
Trev obliged (natch), but as a tarted-up Sinead waited in a swanky hotel room…

Soap coats are nearly as iconic as the characters that wear them, but so often they’re memorable for all the wrong reasons. Here’s our list of the five most questionable coats in Soapland right now!
Cain Dingle’s biker jacket
This village villain has been involved in every dodgy scam going, and has made a bit of dosh along the way, so why does he insist on wearing that same plastic-looking jacket? Besides looking like it could do with a good wash,…

So, Belle’s confessed to Lisa that she killed Gemma, Lisa’s decided they won’t tell the police what happened, and hasn’t even confided in Zak – but is she just making things worse for her little girl? Er, yes!
We all saw what happened: it was a complete accident. Okay, so Belle left Gemma bleeding, but Gem told her to go away. Belle’s a teenage girl – what was she gonna do when her best mate had just slapped her? She…

Don’t get us wrong, we love a good villain, and Fraser Black’s no exception. But recently his storylines have gone from far-fetched to the pure unbelievable. How can one person get away with so much without being rumbled? It’s insane!
Fraser’s a master of disguise, effortlessly switching between the roles of doting family man and murderous criminal mastermind. But the fact that he’s been able to conduct this precarious double life for so long is ludicrous. He spends most of…

So, Ronnie’s back in Walford with a snazzy new dress and a sassy new attitude. But Sharon isn’t happy about having the minty murderess in her house – and do you know what? We don’t really understand why.
In tonight’s episode we saw Shaz tell Ronnie she’s mad, like Archie was (fair point), but Ron wasn’t bothered. Just like she wasn’t bothered when Sharon waved Carl’s phone in her face. Ooh, she’s got really nasty!
Sharon, though, is really, really bothered….

Wowzers! It’s all been blowing up (literally!) in Summer Bay the last few days. With the dust starting to settle after the huge bomb explosion, we sat down with Lynne McGranger and Nic Westaway, aka Irene and Kyle, for a chat on a gorgeous sunny day during their visit to London.
So, Lynne, Irene’s involved in the explosion. Eek!
Lynne: I know! People thought I’d died! Although you nearly didn’t see what happened to Irene at all. It was decided that…

Uh-oh, Sienna Blake’s back in Hollyoaks village and she’s got a new obsession – Peri Lomax!
Released on bail after Patrick did a shady deal with Fraser, Sienna was not exactly Miss Popular on her return, especially not with Nancy and Darren. But although seeing them back together didn’t exactly fill Si with the joys of spring, she only has one focus now she’s out – finding her daughter.
First, though, Dodger had to break the news to her that he…

The soaps are all about two words today – baby drama! Everywhere you look there’s something kiddy-related going on, from expectant mums collapsing, to poorly tots being rushed to hospital.
First up, in Hollyoaks it’s been a tough week for Sinead who’s had to watch her beloved baby Katy taken into care, and tonight finds out Diane’s been granted temporary custody. The teen’s convinced something is seriously wrong with her daughter, but the problem is, no one believes her. Tragically, it’s…
Monday 24 February
Janine’s back! We rejoiced at tonight’s episode as Kat begged her to retract her statement so Stacey could finally return home. Of course, Janine had her conditions…
We loved seeing the Butcher bitch back on our screens, and it made us thankful to Stacey that her return has paved the way for Janine’s return too. But could Stace’s presence on the Square bring anyone else back as well? We ponder this thought…
We miss her sausage surprise, but not as much…
Friday 21 February
From a long-awaited first line, to drug deals, peeping Toms, shoplifters and a dead guy turning up alive, soaps have had it all this week – here’s what we loved…
Stacey spoke! Yes, after weeks of just being a glimpse of a red coat and knee-high boots, or a photo on the wall, Stacey Branning finally opened her mouth and spoke to Kat. Or rather yelled at her. And then she was comforted by Mick. Lovely Mick.
Speaking of the Carters,…
Wednesday 19 February
We’ve always reckoned there was something a bit fishy about Joe Roscoe’s supposed ‘death’, and we’ve just been proved right. Joe isn’t a goner – in fact, he’s still very much alive!
The timing couldn’t have been crueller. Just as devastated Lindsey was aborting their baby in the toilets (what the hell was doofus Freddie thinking telling her Joe had a secret woman?!), we cut to Fraser and Grace peeking through the window of a private hospital room. And who…
Monday 17 February
Losing Hayley was tough, but it’s been just as emotional to watch Roy struggle without his soul mate. Bereft Mr Cropper simply couldn’t cope, despite the street rallying round, and ended up going AWOL – but his well-meaning pals aren’t to blame for driving him away!
Surely his nearest and dearest want him to feel like he’s not alone in the world – okay, so no one will ever take Hayley’s place, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still people…
