'Hollyoaks' McQueen family plan fake Jacqui funeral

Viewers will see the storyline begin when Phoebe McQueen approaches Trevor as she wants to purchase a fake passport for her new friend Vincent Elegba (John Omole), who fears being deported.

Well aware of Phoebe's connection to Jacqui, ruthless Trevor immediately takes action.

Mandip Gill, who plays Phoebe, told All About Soap: "She gets kidnapped by Trevor. To be fair, when she heads off, she doesn't realise she's going to be dealing with Trevor - she wouldn't put herself in that position. Phoebe realises she's in big trouble.

"[Trevor] wants Jacqui, but Phoebe knows she can never tell him where she is. Luckily, George and Vincent come to her rescue, and Ste manages to convince Trevor to release Phoebe.

"There's a big catch, though - Trevor keeps Vincent, and he warns Phoebe that unless she brings Jacqui to him within 48 hours, then he'll kill him and the rest of the McQueen family."

When cunning Doctor Browning (Joseph Thompson) finds out what's going on, he tells the McQueens that they need to convince Trevor that Jacqui is dead. Browning even brings along a real corpse to place in a coffin at the McQueen house.

Gill explained: "Only Browning could come up with a plan that crazy! He tells the McQueens he'll get a fake body and then they're going to have a fake funeral. The plan is that Trevor will fall for the scam, think it's Jacqui and leave the family alone.

"But no-one, apart from Myra, actually realises that he's got hold of a real dead body! When [Trevor] comes round to the house, the body falls out of the coffin!"

Hollyoaks airs these scenes in early July on Channel 4.
