Hollyoaks: Ryan confronts Ste in shock hospital showdown

Ste fights for his life as the corrupt cop pays a visit


Ste Hay is already on remand for the murder of Amy Barnes, but in next week’s Hollyoaks he ends up in hospital as his health fails following his shock decision to stop taking his HIV medication. But why does rival Ryan Knight decide to pay him a visit?


Scared his boyfriend has given up all hope as his trial for killing the mother of his kids looms, heartbroken Harry Thompson starts planning their wedding to give Ste something to look forward to when (or should that be if…) he is released. 


Meanwhile, Ryan and two-faced lawyer James Nightingale are secretly trying to stitch up Ste for the crime, so when Mr Hay is admitted to hospital with a chest infection as his choice about the HIV meds starts to have a serious impact on his health, little sister Tegan Lomax is sick with worry for his welfare and begs Ry Ry to visit her brother in hospital to see how shattered he is.

As Ste and Ryan come face to face for the first time in months in next Tuesday’s E4 episode, will naughty DS Knight admit he’s trying to sabotage the case to ensure Ste gets locked up – despite the fact we still don’t know for sure who actually did away with Amy?


And how serious is Ste’s health crisis? Can Harry convince him to keep fighting? And what other shock evidence is about to come to light about the night Amy died?   

Hollyoaks continues weeknights on E4 at 7pm and on Channel 4 at 6.30pm.
