Love cheat Louis Loveday (Karl Collins) has been ‘looked after’ by Breda McQueen but he’s appalled to realise she is actually keeping him prisoner.

Child-minder Breda (Moya Brady), who has been on a mission to rid Hollyoaks of all the ‘Bad dads’, the cheats, the liars, the husbands and fathers who have betrayed their wives and kids, has already bumped off Glenn Donovan, Russ Owen and Carl Costello and it looks as if she’s gearing up to do the same to Louis Loveday.

In scenes reminiscent of 1990 Hollywood thriller Misery, Breda has been pretending to care for her victim, Louis, while all the time keeping him prisoner.

As the penny starts to drop for Louis, he’s terrified when he tries to find his phone to call for help only to find that he’s been locked into the bedroom.

Meanwhile Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) who has been telling everyone she feels unwell when actually she has been partying too hard, apologies to her boys, Max and Bobby, and tells them that she’ll be on the mend soon. But is she just fooling herself and will she be tempted to take more drugs?
