Here are all your Hollyoaks spoilers for 28th June – 2 July 2021.
Fergus blackmails Grace
With her empire crumbling thanks to Fergus sabotaging the Loft's relaunch, Grace has to think on her feet to protect her livelihood or she'll be forced to concede defeat to the cunning Mr Collins. The baddie with the buzz cut then starts to play proper dirty by lying to the police about the accident and getting Grace arrested.
Slyly offering to change his false statement in exchange for Grace signing over the Loft to him, Fergus reckons he's got the ballsy blonde exactly where he wants her, but never underestimate Ms Black: she steals his laptop to dig for dirt she can use against him, not realising she's on the cusp of exposing his sleazy livestream webcam business. Can Fergus get his machine back before Grace works out the password to hack into it?
