Hollyoaks' James Nightingale faces danger after Warren death discovery

Hollyoaks spoilers follow from Thursday's episode on Channel 4 streaming, which doesn't air on E4 until Friday.

James Nightingale is in deep with tough guy Warren Fox after his and Ste Hay's terrible Ella Richardson secret was uncovered.

Tonight's (March 14) drama in Hollyoaks began with the vengeful Warren visiting Kane in prison - here, he threatened to get him beaten up unless he revealed the identities of daughter Ella's killers.

Meeting a client at the same location, James spotted Warren and Kane in conversation, which made him fear for his and Ste's safety.

Arriving home, James informed Ste of the grave situation and they agreed to collect the children Leah and Lucas from school before making a run for it.

Meanwhile, a shellshocked Warren told Murphy and his thugs: "They're the reason that my daughter is dead! I wanna kill them. I should go over there now and kill them myself..."

The subordinate dealer replied: "No, me and the lads we'll do it for you. That's what we're here for. You need to keep your hands clean."

Just as James prepared to make a dash from the flat with his packed bags in hand, Norma Crow caught him in the act.

"Ste and I had nothing to do with Ella's death," he pleaded, but she was having none of it, yelling back: "You don't pack a bag and try and skip town over a misunderstanding!"

James went on to explain: "It was a terrible accident. We knew that if Warren found out he'd try and kill us. We were just trying to protect our family. I'm so sorry for your loss, but what about our kids? What about Leah and Lucas?

"What about Warren? If he goes through with this he's gonna go back to prison, and then not only will you have lost a granddaughter, you'll have lost a son aswell."

The devious Norma proceeded to trick James into getting in a car with her before driving the unsuspecting dad directly to Warren.

Encircled by Warren and his ruthless mates, he played the accident card one final time as they locked him in the car's boot.

Will he live to see another day?
