'Hollyoaks' trial, 'EastEnders' Joey, Corrie baby scan, E'dale Rhona

By
Hollyoaks glamour girl Mitzeee Minniver hopes that justice will be served as Mercedes McQueen's trial begins next month.

Mitzeee (Rachel Shenton) feels nervous ahead of the all-important court case, but is determined that Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) should be jailed after framing her for attempted murder and everything that happened with Riley and baby Bobby.

When Brendan Brady (Emmett Scanlan) spots how uneasy Mitzeee seems about what's ahead, he decides to help her out by teaching her boxing as a method to let out her anger.

When Mitzeee is called to the stand to give her evidence later in the week, she strides purposefully into the courtroom and seems more confident about how things are going to proceed.

However, Mitzeee is soon thrown by an unexpected line of questioning from Mercy's solicitor Jim McGinn, who suggests that Riley could have been the one who attacked Mercedes and also may have been Lynsey's killer.

As we reported earlier in the week, Jim and Mercedes have agreed to blame Riley for everything, realising that it's their best option as the dead footballer isn't around to defend himself.

Mitzeee is appalled to realise that Riley is being turned into a scapegoat, but will the McQueens back up the fabrications about him? And when the jury finally delivers a verdict, will it be guilty or not guilty?

Mercedes can't look at Mitzee.

Over on EastEnders, Joey Branning pursues Lucy Beale again as he attempts to move on from his short-lived relationship with his cousin Lauren.

Joey (David Witts) is still in love with Lauren, but is forced to bring their romance to a premature end when his interfering dad Derek blackmails him into doing so after the pair's car crash.

When Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) heads out for a drink at the R&R a few days after the accident, she sees it as an opportunity to talk to Joey as he has been ignoring her calls and texts. However, she faces further disappointment when Joey continues to snub her.

Instead, Joey starts flirting with Lucy (Hetti Bywater) and even tells her that he made a mistake by dumping her.

Still smitten, Lucy invites Joey back to the Beale house, but as things start to heat up between them, she is shocked as Joey tells her to stop - he can't do this as he is in love with someone else…

Later at the clinic, a torn Tommy arrives to hold Tina's hand just as Gary and Izzy are cooing over the image on the machine.

Meanwhile, Emmerdale's Rhona Kirk is in for a shock when new vet Brett makes a move on her at work.

Rhona (Zoe Henry) has enjoyed getting to know the surgery's new recruit in recent days, but she is appalled when he tries to take things further with her.

The surprise development comes after Paddy and Marlon have headed off on an activity day together, keen to carry on rebuilding their friendship. However, when the pair end up exhausted during boot camp, they sneak off to the bar instead and decide to stay overnight when they spot an offer for the men's spa.

Paddy and Marlon lie to Rhona and Laurel by claiming that they've injured themselves and can't come home, but when their stories don't match up, Rhona is disappointed to realise that Paddy is lying to her.

Confiding in Brett later, Rhona admits that her relationship may be in trouble, but Brett suggests that she deserves better and moves in to kiss her.

Brett reckons that Rhona isn't happy with Paddy and should stop lying to herself, but a stunned Rhona rejects him and insists that he should leave the surgery immediately…
