Cleo fears her eating disorder might return as Abe continues his control over her in Hollyoaks

Could Hannah be the friend Cleo needs?


If Cleo gets her new promotion, Abe fears that the pair might grow distant, but she assures him that’s not the case, and they make date plans.

Later at work, Cleo is told that she’s got the job of Senior Nurse. But when Abe hears the news, he doesn’t congratulate her. Instead, he turns aggressive after she changes their dinner plans, in the midst of her celebrating.

At The Dog, Mercedes suggests they take the party home for a proper McQueens knees up and she’s led to a surprise party. But things turn awkward when she comments on Abe’s absence to the crowd, not knowing it was him who organised the event.

After a sinister Abe plies his girlfriend with alcohol, he convinces her to be sick and then posts a picture online of her after being sick.

The following day, after discovering the picture posted online, a hungover Cleo is furious at Abe, who claims it was an accident.

When she gets an incoming call from Misbah, Cleo rushes down the hospital to explain, but realises she got the wrong end of the stick.

Confiding in Misbah, Cleo takes her advice and surprises Abe at The Dog with a mortgage advisor, but is horrified when Abe announces that she’s having a bulimia relapse.

Later, Abe sets out a new workout regime for Cleo, including an exercise class in the park and makes a point to praise Theresa and Hannah, which makes Cleo self-conscious.

Seeing through him, Hannah shows her support to Cleo and the pair find a connection having both had eating disorders.

Meanwhile, there’s a new villain in town, and Warren may have met his match as Rex wants to buy him out. But when Warren refuses, the gloves are off.

Rex is Hannah’s former boss, so she’s in for a shock when she bumps into him and he already has a client lined up for her. Comjng to her rescue, Dave helps her escape, but has he found himself in danger?

When Hannah overhears a concerned Cindy searching for Dave, she wants to call the police but Robbie tries to stop her. However, Cindy’s fears are soon put to bed when she hears from him. But was the text from Dave?

Bumping into Rex again, Rex refuse to admit to Hannah where Dave is. Overhearing that Hannah is a sex worker, Abe blackmails her to stay away from Cleo. And he continues to praise Theresa in a bid to make Cleo feel self-conscious.

Later, Cleo agrees to help Abe with his workout videos but when he also invites Theresa, Cleo seeks help, fearing her eating disorder might resurface.
