Hollyoaks' Hannah Ashworth goes missing after Carter attack

Hollyoaks spoilers follow from Monday's episode on Channel 4 streaming, which doesn't air on E4 until Tuesday.

Tonight's (January 22) Hollyoaks streaming episode left on a tense cliffhanger, which saw Hannah Ashworth go missing after getting attacked by Carter Shepherd.

Hannah made her surprise return to the village last week (January 18), where she reunited with her ex-husband Darren Osborne.

Since her arrival, Hannah has already made an enemy in the village headteacher — after overhearing an upsetting conversation he had with Gareth.

Tonight's episode saw Hannah confront Carter at Hollyoaks High, where she threatened to expose his conversion therapy secret. "I know exactly what I heard you say to that guy outside the Dog," she said.

"About a video, about you choosing God, oh and about you saving John Paul from homosexuality?" she added. "I've listened to podcasts about things like this but I never thought I'd meet someone as despicable as you."

"Ever since my father put me on this path, I have dedicated my life, I have sacrificed so much to help others denounce the sinful choices they were making," said Carter as he tried to defend his actions.

"Being gay isn't a choice. You're having a relationship with John Paul. That is a choice!" replied Hannah.

"I care deeply about him," reassured Carter, to which Hannah replied: "You care so much about him that you're kissing him one minute and then telling him he's disgusting the next."

She added: "You are gaslighting John Paul and all the people you are trying to convert."

Hannah continued to confront him and in a moment of madness, Carter lost his temper and pushed her to the floor, knocking her unconscious.

Carter then quickly placed Hannah's unconscious body into the boot of his van, just as John Paul arrived to invite him to Prince's homecoming party.

After a fleeting visit to the McQueen's party, Carter returned to the school to find Hannah missing from the van. Where did she go?
