Peri Lomax (Ruby O'Donnell) organises a surprise trip for Juliet Nightingale (Niamh Blackshaw) to take her mind off her upcoming PET scan results.

In Brighton for the weekend, the pair experience a few setbacks and bump into an unexpected helper: RuPaul's Drag Race winner Danny Beard.

Meanwhile, in Chester, Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) and James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) bicker over their wedding planning — and Brooke Hathaway (Tylan Grant) is worried over their new job.

Read on for all your Hollyoaks spoilers from 13th-17th March 2023.

Juliet takes a PET scan to see if her latest treatment is working. Expressing her interest in James and Ste's wedding, she opens up to Peri about her difficult childhood and always wanting to go to the seaside.

Inspired by her girlfriend's words, Peri decides to surprise Juliet by taking her to Brighton whilst they wait for the results.

However, Peri soon finds out she's unable to pay for the trip and asks James to lend her a hand. Reluctant to fund the trip as he's worried over his sister's health, the lawyer caves and foots the bill when Ste persuades him to help.

Thanks to James, Peri manages to give Juliet the seaside trip she's always dreamt of. The couple stay in a deluxe suite and share a special moment on Brighton Beach.

After a night of partying, Peri realises all of their belongings are missing. She and Juliet need a miracle to make it back to Chester in time for the doctor's appointment — and that's when Drag Race winner Danny Beard comes into play.
