Nothing gets a Hollyoaks couple going quite like being kidnapped together – after all, it’s a hostage situation that led to Warren Fox and Grace Black kicking off their recent affair. Now it could be the turn of on.off lovers Joel Dexter and Cleo McQueen as they find themselves tempted during a terrible peril.
Cleo and Joel have extremely strong feelings for one another – there’s no denying it. But so far, it has been a somewhat destructive path to love with drug dens, murder scandals and motorbike crashes all playing a huge part in keeping them separated.
When Joel decides to join forces with Darren Osborne to take down Shane, it is the catalyst for disaster. Shane discovers that the vicar is setting him up with police and so hits him where is hurts by abducting Cleo.
When Joel is then taken to where Cleo is locked up, he is thrown into the engine room too and the pair are trapped together.
It at least may give them time to chat – as they focus on trying to escape and fearing for their lives, will the adrenaline turn into passion?
And will the prospect of meeting a grim end drive them to reveal their true feelings for one another before it’s too late?
It remains to be seen how far Shane plans to go with his captives – and whether Hollyoaks is lining up another tragedy for long suffering Cleo.
Can they escape – and will they be in a relationship if they do have longer than a day to live? Only time will tell!
