Cleo McQueen could be set for another harrowing ordeal in Hollyoaks when the man who subjected her to years of abuse through her childhood could reappear in her life. Cleo is shaken to learn that Pete Buchanan is being released for the day from prison and, as she reels from the thought of him being out, she makes a big decision.
Cleo seeks Brody’s help after getting the news but he is out of his depth to discuss this properly with her or know how to handle it. As Cleo feels supported, she seeks solace in bingeing on food as her bulimia condition takes a grip of her.
With Brody not standing by to help, Cleo does some research and discovers the address of where Pete will be visiting on his day release.
Deciding that she needs to go and visit Pete, Cleo heads off on a mission but when a worried Brody discovers her plans, he heads to share the news with Joel Dexter.
Joel leaps into action and rushes to the rescue and Cleo is overwhelmed when he stops her from doing something stupid. Grateful for his support, Cleo tries to kiss him but this just sets into motion another chain of events.
With Sienna Blake determined to keep a hold of Joel for herself, the two women are soon at loggerheads and go to war with one another for Joel’s affections.
But where does Joel’s heart lie?
