Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Mandy and Ella's killer secret is now under threat in Hollyoaks.
The duo were backed into a corner earlier this week when Nancy Hayton overheard Mandy telling Luke that "the truth" about Charlie couldn't ever come to light.
In Wednesday's (March 10) first-look episode, Mandy tried to talk her way out of trouble by insisting she was referring to Darren trying to keep Charlie's plight a secret from those in the village.
"No, you're lying and I want the truth. Now," Nancy demanded. "I'm not leaving until I get some answers."
Despite Luke prodding Mandy to reveal the truth, Mandy managed to turn things around by pointing out that she could tell Nancy had been drinking — supposedly proof that Nancy was in a spiral.
"Well, you're right. I have been a bit erratic lately," Nancy admitted.
When Nancy mentioned she had a video call with Charlie the following day, Mandy insisted that "the best thing" she could do was go home and get rest.
As Nancy excused herself, Luke was furious to see Mandy continuing to mislead Nancy, telling her it was "selfish and cruel" to make Nancy "question her sanity".
"It's not the Mandy I know," Luke told her.
Later, Mandy approached Darren with the idea of postponing the wedding until Charlie got out of jail, but her spouse-to-be insisted that Charlie would want him to be happy.
At the same time, Ella collected a letter from Charlie, where he revealed that he was going to tell the truth the next time he spoke to Nancy (which he'd be doing the following day).
A panicked Ella showed the letter to her mum and admitted: "He's going to tell Nancy that I killed Jordan."
What new low will Mandy stoop to in order to stop the truth from coming out?
