In scenes airing next week, Scott is informed that Miley's father has passed all his inspections and therefore has regained full custody of her.

Devastated, Scott doesn't know how to tell Miley she's moving back in with her dad.

Later, Scott wants to help with the school prom to take his mind off his situation with Miley.

When he's contemplating a fresh start, Sally St Claire offers him some advice. Will he choose to leave Hollyoaks behind?

In March this year, Adams shared his reasons for leaving the soap in a statement on his Instagram page.

"I love the show; the wonderful cast and one of the most dedicated crews in the business – all of whom are having a pretty rough time at the moment," he wrote.

"So, deciding not to sign another contract was one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make.

"Sometimes though, you've just got to be brave – and now feels like the right time for me to try some other things that I've been super keen to do. I really hope you'll all come with me for the ride!"

These scenes will air next week.

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.
