James Nightingale is set to embark on a passionate encounter with Kyle Kelly in Hollyoaks as his life starts to fall apart in the wake of Sami Maalik revealing that he was the one to set up his father. Previously, James had been making plans for the future with Harry Thompson but it all threatens to be reduced to dust.
With Sami revealing to his stunned family what James did, there are dramatic repercussions and James soon finds himself hooking up with Kyle in order to try and make himself feel better.
Kyle definitely seems interested in pursuing a relationship with James but whether his feelings are genuine or he has an agenda is unclear. But after their night together, James makes it clear that he doesn’t want to spend any more time with him, leaving him feeling defeated.
Meanwhile, the Maaliks are disgusted with Sami for keeping quiet for so long about the truth around the death of his father while Farrah makes a further realisation when she learns that Sami lied about Kim Butterfield cheating on her.
Realising that Kim is genuinely missing and could be in danger, Farrah searches for answers but will she discover what has happened to her?
And will anything come of Kyle and James’ passion? And if so, what will the reactions be of killer Ryan Knight and wrongly jailed Harry Thompson?
What a mess this lot are in!
