Hollyoaks airs police trouble for Frankie Osborne

This story discusses topics including sibling sexual abuse.

Hollyoaks spoilers follow.

Frankie Osborne has landed in police custody in heartbreaking Hollyoaks scenes.

Viewers know that Frankie is recovering memories that she was abused by her twin JJ when they were younger, though she's not told her family what she's going through. Darren remained in the dark over what his daughter experienced in Thursday's (March 28) first-look episode, where he was confused by her turning down a dinner with JJ.

Angered by hearing that Lucas Hay may fancy Frankie, JJ set off to find his sister — leading to an explosive confrontation between the siblings.

"[Lucas] doesn't really care about you. No-one does, not like I do," JJ alarmingly told his sister.

JJ tried to force Frankie to dance with him as she tried to get away, with Frankie shouting: "I said no! I said no!".

Frankie tried to slam her bedroom door shut, but as JJ was charging forward, the door slammed on his foot instead.

Charlie walked in during the middle of this awful situation, though JJ insisted he'd injured his foot trying to grab something for Frankie. Later, it was revealed that football star JJ would be off the pitch for the time being because he'd torn a ligament.

Frankie was then surprised to find mum Suzanne kissing Ethan Williams outside The Loft. When Suzanne asked her daughter to dance, Frankie had an involuntarily triggering reaction by shoving her mother to the ground.

Detective Zoe Anderson happened to see this shocking event and announced that she'd be taking the teen down to the police station for questioning.

In upcoming scenes, Frankie will be questioned by a social worker — will she open up about her trauma?

Hollyoaks streams first online via Channel 4 each weekday at 7.30pm. Episodes then air on E4 the following day, before getting their YouTube premiere a week after that.

Selected omnibus episodes are available via Prime Video.
