Hollyoaks has revealed that the village is to be rocked by a massive gas explosion during the hotly anticipated stunt week with jealous Mac Nightingale setting off a deadly chain of events that leaves lives hanging in the balance

Hollyoaks has revealed that the village is to be rocked by a massive gas explosion during the hotly anticipated stunt week.

The lives of  Head teacher Sally St Claire and teaching staff  Louis Loveday, Neeta Kaur and Luke Morgan, will be at risk when Hollyoak’s High becomes an inferno after a school prize-giving event.

It’s a vengeful Mac Nightingale who is responsible  for the deadly explosion.  In a fit of anger he sets fire to a drawing of his girlfriend, Neeta and her pupil lover, Hunter McQueen and throws the burning image into the path of a gas leak he has caused earlier by damaging the school boiler in a furious outburst.

MAC SETS FIRE TO NEETA’S PICTURE AND CAUSES THE EXPLOSION

Hollyoaks favourites including the Osborne family are also involved, as are sixth formers Tom Cunningham, Alfie Nightingale, Peri Lomax, Yasmine Maalik and Lily Drinkwell who are at the prize- giving event in memory of Jade Albright, who died last year from cancer.

Viewers have seen Neeta suffer at the hands of controlling Mac over the past few weeks and have already witnessed his jelaousy explode over the controversial affair with her teenage pupil Hunter.

Now it looks as if the pair’s secret romance is going to have catastrophic consequences as the explosion leaves lives hanging in the balance. Who will escape the blast unscathed? And is more death and destruction about to hit Hollyoaks?

Hollyoaks, weekdays 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look screening at 7pm on E4
