Cindy Cunningham (Stephanie Waring) is back in the village but is appalled to find that Donna-Marie Quinn (Lucy Jo Hudson) is living in her house.
She doesn’t realise that scheming Mac Nightingale (David Easter) has done a deal with the trouble-making mum and promised she can stay in the property so long as she agrees to do his dirty work.
Meanwhile Mandy Richardson (Sarah Jayne Dunn) is pleased when she wins £200 on a scratch card. Darren Osborne (Ashley Taylor Dawson) decides he’s going to represent himself in court for the custody battle with Nancy over who gets the kids.
However when Kyle Kelly (Adam Rickitt) spots Darren chatting to legal-eagle Sami Maalik, he gets the wrong end of the stick and tells Nancy that Darren has hired Sami (Rishi Nair) as his lawyer. Nancy’s worried!
Later on an increasingly desperate Darren steals Mandy’s winning scratch card and takes the cash to the casino night at The Loft. Is he about to blow Mandy’s winnings?
Plus Sinead O’ Connor’s husband Laurie (Kyle Pryor) has another meeting with head teacher Sally St Claire but quickly rushes off when he gets a threatening text from Georgia about going to the police.
Elsewhere Sienna Blake, who also wants a teaching job at Hollyoaks High is excited when she thinks she’s going to be given the chance to observe a class.
Sinead (Stephanie Davis) runs into her in Price Slice and sees her with a teaching magazine.
She warns Sienna (Anna Passey) to keep her hands off her man Laurie, who’s also hoping for a job at the school….or else there will be hell to pay!
