Hollyoaks' Nancy Osborne is blamed for Frankie's fall in new twist

Hollyoaks spoilers follow for the latest episode from Channel 4 streaming, which airs tomorrow on E4.

Note: This story discusses topics including sibling sexual abuse.

Hollyoaks' Nancy Osborne is facing suspicion due to JJ's manipulations in tonight's (June 5) newest episode.

Previously, Frankie fell down the stairs shortly after being attacked by her evil brother, who was angry that she was finally speaking out against his abuse of her (although the family was still unaware of the full extent).

Frankie was in the middle of an argument with a drunk Nancy when she fell, and the latest episode began with JJ convincing the family that Nancy was to blame.

Later on, a disorientated Frankie woke up to find herself alone in the hospital room with JJ.

She told him that she was ready to expose him for all the awful things that he had done to her, and he then offered her a twisted ultimatum.

"Don't say anything please, I'm begging you... I didn't mean to hurt you. Just don't say I hit you, and I'll leave you alone. I mean it this time, honestly.

"Look, the police are gonna wanna talk to you. When they ask you what happened, just leave me out of it, please... Say it was Nancy who pushed you. And I'll never go near you again."

Soon enough, the police turned up at the family house and told Nancy that she needed to come down for questioning. At the station, Nancy defended herself against allegations of pushing Frankie in a rage after learning about Morgan's drugging.

Frankie returned to the house to collect her things, as she wasn't allowed to be at home due to her bail conditions. She told her family she didn't do it, accusing Suzanne of pushing a vendetta.

The truth has been recorded on Frankie's tablet, but will she remember, or will someone trustworthy find it before JJ does?
