1. Shock car crash
Chester villagers will be celebrating Mother’s Day in scenes airing this week on Channel 4.
But the celebration turns sour for many Hollyoaks residents – and it could even have a deadly end.
Coming up, Felix Westwood (portrayed by Richard Blackwood) helps his pal Warren Fox (Jamie Lomas) write his Mother’s Day card.
He suggests they go to pick up the surprise he’s arranged for his mother Norma Crow aka the Undertaker (Glynis Barber) in the garage, but the latter finds enough excuses to dismiss it.
Norma is happy to realise her family will finally be able to come together after Sienna Blake (Anna Passey) agreed to let the twins spend time with her and Warren.
The criminal mastermind is planning to flee the village with the children, unbeknownst to Sienna.
However, it’s only a matter of time before she finds out.
Sienna prepares to set the twins off on their day out with Warren and Norma but she realises that her children’s passports have disappeared and quickly puts two and two together.
An oblivious Warren is forced to return to the village as Sophie’s favourite toy has been left behind.
Once Norma realises, they’re back in Hollyoaks, she grabs the wheel, driving the car straight into the Grand Bazaar.
The whole village observes the aftermath of the crash with Grace Black (Tamara Wall) helping Cindy Cunningham (Stephanie Waring) up after pushing her out of the way, and Sienna saves her children.
The market continues to crumble on top of the car with Warren and Norma still inside.
Realising his mother had a devious plan all along, a betrayed Warren must decide to save Norma or leave her to die.
Will he decide in time to save her?
