So, even though Ziggy (Fabrizio Santino) set the police on Tegan for pretending baby Rose and been snatched, she still loves him… And he can’t leave her alone, either.
“Ziggy and Leela [Kirsty-Leigh Porter] are married but he knows in his heart of hearts that he’s married the wrong sister,” Hollyoaks boss Bryan Kirkwood told the Sun. “This will run and run.
“And in the middle of that love triangle, we’ve got the fact that Tegan is bringing up the wrong daughter [her real daughter, Dee Dee, having been swapped at birth and now being raised by Diane O’Connor].
“So we’ve got the Lomaxes, the Hutchinsons and the O’Connors in the big family fight that’s going to dominate the next couple of months.”
But Tegan will have to make her feelings felt from behind bars.
“She has scenes with Ziggy in prison where she says she knows what he’s done but she understands it,” says Tegan actress Jessica Ellis. “She knows it’s crazy, but she loves him.”
Hollyoaks continues on Channel 4 weeknights at 6.30pm.
