Hollyoaks' Maxine Minniver will make a spectacle of herself at her engagement party as she struggles to cope with Darcy's mean meddling.

Adam and Maxine will relish the opportunity to rekindle their romance next week, after the all the turmoil of Darcy's arrival and the subsequent reveal that Adam has a 4-year-old son, Toby.

But as the reunited couple make plans to spend a romantic day together, a scheming Darcy throws a spanner in the works by requesting that Adam look after Toby instead.

After some advice from her friend Darren Osborne, Maxine decides to play Darcy at her own game and enjoys the day with Toby, much to Adam's delight.

In fact, seeing how good Maxine is with Toby prompts Adam to make a romantic gesture, popping the question to Maxine again and insisting that she is the girl he wants to spend the rest of his life with.

A delighted Maxine accepts and the pair soon prepare for a big engagement do – much to the frustration of Darcy, who plots to ruin the pair's happiness again.

Before long, Darcy is announcing that it's Toby's birthday on the same day they've planned their celebration, meaning she's had to postpone his party.

Kind-hearted as ever, Maxine reluctantly agrees to let Toby share their party, unaware of Darcy's nasty plan to sabotage it.

As Maxine continues to organise the party to perfection, she is devastated to learn that Darcy has taken over and made it more child-friendly for Toby's sake.

And, when Maxine drowns her sorrows at the party, it ends in disaster when she gets too drunk and is sick in front of everyone during her speech.

A mortified Maxine is consoled by Adam in the aftermath – who attempts to cheer her up by revealing he's booked their wedding for two weeks' time – but will Darcy sabotage their big day too?
