Feathers are ruffled when Tabby (Linda Gray) descends on Hollyoaks village! Mac in particular is not thrilled by her appearance
With her money worries mounting, Marnie is hoping mommy-dearest Tabby, played by Dallas legend Linda Gray, might be able to come to her rescue in Hollyoaks.
But when her mother finally makes her grand entrance in Chester, following the death of her husband Charles, not everyone is exactly pleased to see her.
There’s clearly a lot of bad blood between Tabby and her estranged son-in-law Mac and it doesn’t take long before old tensions rise to the surface…
Marnie welcomes her mum Tabby with outstretched arms...
But Mac is less than delighted to see his estranged mother-in-law and struggles to raise a smile as he hovers in the background. No warm hugs from him!
The family get ready to sit down to a nice meal together at their restaurant, Nightingale's.
But the atmosphere is already starting to tense up.
Nathan and James are pleased to have their grandmother around.
But the same can't be said for Mac. Tabby has made no secret of the fact she's never liked him and never considered him good enough for her little girl. So he's not exactly jumping for joy when she presents him with a gift of golf clubs!
Ellie feels awkward being stuck in the middle.
It may be Mac's birthday, but he's not in the mood for celebrating. Check out Tabby's steely glare!
Can Marnie get her family to unite or is Tabby's arrival going to create yet more mayhem in the Nightingale abode?
