Body swap plot for 'Hollyoaks'

Body swap plot for 'Hollyoaks'

Ashley Taylor Dawson

Hollyoaks pub landlord Jack Osborne takes the biggest risk of his life when he fakes his own death to secure his family's financial future.

Jack - played by James McKenna - is forced to take drastic action when his mounting debts become ever more crippling. In an attempt to free his family from ongoing financial pressures, he attempts to take his own life so his family can cash in on his life insurance.

However, when his son Darren (Ashley Taylor Dawson) catches him at his darkest moment, they're forced to search for another way to end their financial misery.

A Hollyoaks source told DS: "Jack's at an all-time low and the finding of a dead body is too good an opportunity for him and Darren to pass up.

"They swap the dead man's identity with Jack's, forcing Jack to slope off into the night. Darren's then left with the formidable task of telling step-mum Frankie (Helen Pearson) of the 'death'.

"As Darren's tangled web of lies continues to grow, he's left in an extremely tricky position when he learns that Kris (Gerard McCarthy) and brother Malachy (Glen Wallace) are searching for their father. It's only then that Darren discovers the true identity of the corpse."

They added: "Will Darren be able to keep his cool, or will he crack under the pressure? It's only when Jack turns up at his own funeral that Darren realises that the situation has truly spiraled out of control." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
