Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Martine Deveraux has told Grace Black the truth about her kiss with Felix.
Grace started suspecting something was amiss with the former couple earlier this week, when she found out Martine had provided Felix with an alibi at the time of the Price Slice robbery.
In Tuesday's (August 3) first-look episode on E4, Grace continued trying to catch her new friend and her boyfriend out over their cheating by inviting them both out.
As Grace gave Martine a speech about how important loyalty is in a friendship, Martine figured out that her friend must have found out about the kiss.
Finally, a guilty Martine decided it was time to come clean about seeing Felix behind Grace's back for the past few weeks.
Felix initially tried to take the blame for lying to Grace, but Martine admitted she'd also felt horrible about not coming clean to her friend.
"To find out, I was so worried I turned up at the police station to cover for you, only to find out about your alibi from some gossipy little police officer," Grace raged. "Can you imagine how humiliating that would have been for me?"
Grace baulked when Felix insisted he'd cared for her: "How can I believe a single word you say? That's what you do, you lie, you cheat and then you leave? Now, there is only one person sitting round that table stupid enough to believe your rubbish for a second time round!"
Martine had to rush out to meet Walter as he was leaving the hospital, with Grace chasing her down the street and exposing the affair in front of the rest of the family.
"I don't want to lose you," Martine insisted. "I've never been more alone and confused since my diagnosis. And other than Felix, you're the only person that's made me feel remotely normal."
Grace left Martine with an ultimatum: "I'll forgive you, if you choose me over Felix. I love Felix, but blokes, they come and go.
"I've been through this once before and I will go through it once again. This, I've never really had a proper mate. So, choose me."
In the end, Martine delivered the news to a stunned Felix that she was indeed choosing her friendship with Grace over continuing their romance. Will she regret her decision?
