Hollyoaks are lining up a shock baby plot for Lisa Loveday as she agrees to be a surrogate for her parents.
In next week’s episodes, Lisa saves her troubled mum Simone from relapsing back into booze addiction when she stops her hitting the bottle.
Devastated that her dream of having another baby by IVF has been shattered, Simone opens up to her daughter and the pair have an emotional heart-to-heart.
Guilt-ridden Lisa ends up admitting to Simone all about her torrid affair with Mac Nightingale, which set off a chain of events that led to his son – and Lisa’s ex – Nathan’s tragic death.
As mother and daughter bond over their struggles in recent months, Lisa realises Simone will never be happy as long as she believes she can never have another child, and after some soul searching the eldest Loveday child makes a surprising suggestion to her mum – and offers to be a surrogate for her and Louis.
Stunned at the huge gesture, Lisa’s parents excitedly agree to the idea and there are celebrations all round chez Loveday as Simone’s baby dream is seemingly given another chance.
But can party girl Lisa, renowned for her minxy behaviour, really sacrifice her hedonistic lifestyle of clubbing and boys and put her parents first? Or will her irresponsible nature mean she could end up letting them down?
Hollyoaks continues weeknights on E4 at 7pm and on Channel 4 at 6.30pm.
