Tonight’s (April 1) first-look episode began with Darren tending to Frankie as she recovered in bed from the previous ordeal, which saw her choking before vomiting.

Darren attempted to brighten her mood by planning a day of video games, but Frankie made an excuse to get out of the situation after he revealed that JJ would be in attendance.

She subsequently meets with Lucas as the pair share a tender moment, with Frankie stealing a bottle of wine as she mentioned a special place where she can sit with her thoughts.

The place in question proved to be the grave of the late Ella Richardson, but Lucas lashed out as Frankie began to spiral out of control after drinking too much.

She remarked that the booze helped her forget the past for even a brief second, with Lucas sharing that he had recently self-harmed following his own troubles in the conversion therapy storyline.

Frankie continued to drink as she returned home, with the teenager stepping on a bottle cap as she injured her ankle; she subsequently had tears in her eyes as she began to self-harm.

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.
