Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Hollyoaks has teased a Darren Osborne and Mandy Richardson reunion following a shock kiss.
The pair split up on their wedding day earlier this year, when Mandy (Sarah Jayne Dunn) finally revealed she'd been lying about Ella's involvement in the killing of drug dealer Jordan Price on New Year's Eve.
Darren (Ashley Taylor Dawson) has since rekindled his romance with ex-wife Nancy Hayton (Jessica Fox), but after a disastrous date this week, Nancy actually encouraged Darren to support Mandy at Ella's court hearing.
After the hearing, Darren was alarmed to get a text from Nancy insisting they call things off. He then decided to spend some extra time with Mandy instead of going straight home.
One thing led to another as they opened up about their children's struggles, with Darren assuring her "any parent" would have done the exact same thing as she'd done protecting Ella.
"So, you don't think I'm a bad person?" a tearful Mandy asked, with Darren insisting: "Never!"
Mandy then confessed that she'd "really missed" Darren, admitting: "I've been so lonely… [Now I'm] warm, safe. But I'm scared that if you go, I'll never have that feeling again."
Mandy and Darren almost seemed to be pulled toward one another and took each other's hands. The first-look episode faded out over a blurred mirror image of the two sharing a passionate kiss.
Has Darren truly decided to give up on Nancy in order to get back with Mandy?
There will be even more pressure for Darren ahead when he's caught up in the dispute between Fergus and Grace — and ends up severely injured as a result!
