Hollyoaks: Sinead O'Connor faces social services shock

By
Hollyoaks' Sinead O'Connor will have her baby daughter Katy taken away after she is accused of lying about the youngster's health.

A devastating chain of events for Sinead (Stephanie Davis) begins when she rushes Katy to hospital yet again, determined that there is something wrong with her.

Sinead's love rival Lindsey Butterfield turns out to be the doctor on duty, but she soon causes shockwaves by accusing the young mum of making up Katy's recent health scares for attention.

Sophie Austin, who plays Lindsey, told All About Soap: "Sinead has been taking little Katy to hospital a lot recently, convinced something is wrong with her. On this latest occasion, Lindsey gets suspicious.

"Lindsey has a good moral compass and cares a lot about other people, so when she gets involved with Sinead and Katy, it's because she's worried - not because she's out to get Sinead or anything.

"There's nothing out of the ordinary showing up in Katy's tests, which starts to suggest that perhaps Sinead is not telling the whole truth about Katy's health."

Lindsey later faces a backlash when Sinead and her stepmother Diane find blood in one of Katy's nappies. Furious, Diane reports Lindsey to her boss for unprofessional behaviour.

However, when social services later remove Katy from Sinead's care, it seems that they believe Lindsey could have been right all along.

Austin continued: "Lindsey is forced to do her job as a doctor and voice her concerns that Sinead may possibly be making it all up - but obviously, levelling this accusation affects her relationship with Freddie, and Sinead is understandably horrified and upset.

"Lindsey feels terrible, because she'd never put someone in danger for her own selfish needs - yet people think that's exactly what she's doing. The whole situation is heartbreaking."

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
