Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Hollyoaks' Mandy Richardson will grow increasingly concerned about Darren Osborne in upcoming scenes.
Mandy's fears about her partner Darren begin to rise to the surface again in this week's episodes, when she becomes worried about his distracted behaviour.
Darren is obsessing over protecting some duck eggs by the river and tells Mandy that it's to preserve Kyle's memory as they used to feed the ducks together.
Despite this, Mandy's worries intensify when she reads a highly concerning diary entry of Darren's later on, stating that he 'wants to end it all’.
However, when Mandy attempts to reach out to Darren, he brushes off her concerns as he is still preoccupied with the duck eggs.
Unaware of what Mandy has read, Darren insists that he's fine – leaving her at a loss as to what to do next.
As Mandy tries to shake off her concerns about Darren, she is given a reality check when Cindy tells her that Kyle also appeared 'fine', before he ended his life.
Cindy's words prompt Mandy to rush out to look for Darren, but will he open up to her this time?
