Hollyoaks student Leanne Holiday experiences a rollercoaster of emotions next week as she sees Will Savage's true colours, before later developing an attraction to him in a surprising twist.
Leanne is horrified when she finds Will's secret notebook and CCTV footage which has kept track of Texas's every movement. However, she later realises that she can relate to his obsessive behaviour and starts to fall for him.
Digital Spy recently chatted to Jessica Forrest, who plays Leanne, to hear her thoughts on the storyline.
Have you enjoyed being brought into the Will and Texas saga?
"Yeah, it's been great! I think with this storyline, we've all been given something to really sink our teeth into, which is nice. Each of the characters is completely different and brings a different dynamic to the situation. That's been really fun and we've all really enjoyed it."
Is Leanne happy to see Texas and Will planning their wedding?
"She is at first - she's quite happy for them. It's been quite a shock to Leanne and Doug, because it's always been Texas and Dodger who had strong feelings for each other. When Texas and Will got together, they were slightly sceptical about it.
"Despite that, Leanne is one of Texas's best friends, so she does encourage it. If it makes Texas happy, she will support it. Plus, Leanne loves a wedding! Give her a wedding and she'll definitely run with it! (Laughs.) It all starts off quite good, but obviously a spanner is thrown in the works later on…"
It's actually Leanne who books the wedding for four weeks' time, isn't it?
"Yeah, that's right. At this point, Texas has got a lot of college work to do, and she has lots of other things on her mind, so she's making excuses to delay the wedding a little bit. That's because she wants to sort out her own emotions in her head.
"But at the same time, Will is quite pushy about it, as he wants the wedding to happen much sooner. When Texas isn't around, Leanne and Will form quite a big friendship. It's obvious that Will really wants the wedding to go ahead, so Leanne plans it with him.
"Leanne does get very involved with the wedding and she ends up booking it, which ticks Texas off. But perhaps that's only because she's a little bit unhappy in the relationship herself."
Is Leanne excited when Texas and Will ask her to be maid of honour on the big day?
"Very much so, she's really excited! It's a lovely little moment when Leanne is asked to be maid of honour, so it's all looking good at that point!"
But then Leanne finds out that Will has been stalking Texas! How does she react?
"Leanne goes absolutely mental! She absolutely blows her lid and calls Will an absolute freak. She's screaming and she's throwing the CCTV DVDs around the room. Will is really panicking because he's been found out, and he doesn't know what Leanne is going to do.
"But Will is a master manipulator and he eventually manages to pin Leanne down to have a little chat with her. The interesting thing is that a lot of Will's personality traits are similar to Leanne's, in the way that he's become very obsessive. He's stalking Texas, which is similar to the way that Leanne stalked Lee when she first joined the village.
"Will points out that they're both 'crazy in love' and it's something they've got in common. He manages to bring her round, so Leanne starts to think that they're almost soul mates. She sees something in Will that she's only ever seen in herself, and a nice bond starts to develop between them."
Leanne's feelings for Will start to become increasingly romantic. Were you surprised by that?
"It's definitely unexpected, but I think Will is desperate. Somebody has found out his secrets and he's trying to do everything in his power to keep those under wraps. He basically manipulates Leanne into fancying him, so she'll do anything for him.
"We all know what Leanne's like around men - they say 'Jump' and she says 'How high?' So Will definitely uses that to his advantage. I think it's nice for the audience to see a different side to Leanne. For once, she's the one who's being manipulated."
Does Leanne feel guilty about developing an attraction to her best friend's fiancé?
"Definitely. The whole storyline for Leanne is revolving around her guilt, as she's being manipulated the whole time. The audience can see that Will is pushing her into certain situations, but Leanne doesn't realise that. She thinks their attraction is developing quite naturally, but it's actually formed by his manipulations."
It's no secret that this storyline is leading up to the murder of Texas! Are you sad to see Bianca Hendrickse-Spendlove, who plays her, leaving the show?
"It's really sad! I'm gutted as she's my best friend. I lived with her for a year and a half and I really love her. It won't only change the dynamic at work, but also the dynamic in the village. Who's Leanne going to be hanging about with now? Changes are exciting but it's also really sad."
What can we expect between now and the wedding?
"There's loads of stuff coming up, just keep tuning in! The storyline starts next week and then it runs for a few months. It's so exciting and there's so many twists and turns.
"We've already filmed the wedding, and the big day is amazing. When we filmed it, it was absolutely beautiful and we had big crane cameras shooting some of the scenes. I think it's going to look amazing - Hollyoaks at its best!"
Will Leanne be under suspicion when Texas is murdered?
"Yes, she's definitely one of the suspects! There are five suspects and Leanne is one of them, unfortunately!"
After nearly three years with the show, do you still enjoy Hollyoaks as much as when you first started?
"To be honest, I think I enjoy it more, if anything! I've been there quite a long time now. It was my first TV job, so it was all new to me. I've definitely learned on the job and I feel like I've got better since I've been there. The character has developed and Leanne has formed quite a few different relationships.
"For example, if I have a scene with Doug now, then we've got three years of history to draw on. We've had a kiss, we've almost got married, so a lot has happened! I think you just get a chance to develop a complex character, which is really fun. I've got the best job in the world."
Would you like Leanne to ever be lucky in love for a change?
"No, single Leanne all the way! I can't handle her when she's around men, she's too much! I'm single and it's quite nice to be single at work and single at home for a change!
"Having said that, obviously Leanne has got a lovely little relationship with Dennis, so you never know what's going to happen there. There's also a few hotties in the village so maybe she'll get on the prowl!"
Do you hope the writers keep Leanne's quirky side?
"Definitely, I love that. At the end of the day, she's a bit like Marmite, but I love all the one-liners they write for her. Whenever I pick a script up, I always know that she's going to be up to something, and that's why I'm still there now. I think there's always so much more she can do, so it's great."
Is there a dream storyline that you'd love to play as Leanne?
"Well, I've actually really enjoyed the last storyline that I've just done, but I'm not really allowed to talk about it! As a dream storyline, I'd love to meet Leanne's parents, because I think that'd be quite funny. I imagine her mum to be really strait-laced and prim and proper, so I do wonder where her crazy side has come from. I think it'd definitely be funny to meet the parents."
