Hollyoaks spoilers follow.

Luke Morgan is set to plan a surprise proposal to Cindy Cunningham on Hollyoaks.

In scenes set to air next week, as Sue's funeral approaches, Cindy grows increasingly suspicious that Luke's dementia is getting worse since he has grown increasingly erratic and insists on planning the funeral himself.

Luke was diagnosed with FTD Pick's disease, also known as frontotemporal dementia, nearly two years ago, which is characterised by rapid progression.

"It's a problem with your brain cells, causing a decline in behaviour, speech, memory and movement," the doctor explained at the time. "Your tendency towards impulsivity and irrationality over the last few months is likely to have been caused by the condition."

Cindy has hope that Luke's absent son Ollie will show up to Sue's funeral after posting about it on social media, though Luke's sister Zara arrives instead, making her return after 16 years away.

However, she is oblivious to Luke's condition and is hurt after finding out about the funeral on social media. Seeking advice from old friend Tony Hutchinson, he tells her to bear with Luke.

When Cindy voices her concerns to Luke himself, he puts his behaviour down to grieving and decides to hold back the truth from Zara a bit longer.

Meanwhile, as Luke and Zara bond over old memorabilia back at the house, he gets the idea to propose to Cindy.

Hollyoaks airs these scenes on Thursday, August 5 and Friday, August 6 at 6.30pm on Channel 4.
