In Pictures: Max's final moments in 'Hollyoaks'
It should be the happiest day of Max's (Matt Littler) life as he prepares to tie the knot with his fiancée Steph Dean (Carley Stenson). His wedding day begins with an emergency trip to the hospital, owing to chest pains caused by his heart condition.
After being given the all-clear, he and Steph tie the knot, Father Kieron (Jake Hendriks) declaring them husband and wife.
Tragedy soon strikes, however, when Max sees his little brother Tom (Ellis Hollins) in the path of a speeding car being driven by Niall (Barry Sloane). As he pushes Tom out of the road, Max is struck by the motor and thrown to the ground. Steph, O.B. (Darren Jon Jeffries) and Tom gather around Max's motionless body.
