Hollyoaks priest Joel Dexter is left devastated next week as he discovers that Bart McQueen has been murdered and it's partly his fault.

Bart was killed by Joel's dad Warren Fox last week, as he faced the brutal consequences of his role in Katy's tragic demise.

Ever since then, Warren has been trying to complete his grisly cover-up by attempting to move Bart's body out of Sally St Claire and Neeta Kaur's attic – which finally comes to fruition in tonight's E4 first look episode.

Warren hopes his nightmare is almost over when he puts Bart's body in his van, but the worst may still be to come when Joel suddenly takes the vehicle without his dad's permission.

While you'll have to tune into Hollyoaks to see exactly what happens, an unfortunate series of events leads to Joel discovering the terrible truth about Bart's fate.

The news will come as a horrific shock to Joel, as he was the one who first set Warren on his vengeful path by naming Bart as the person who supplied Katy with the drugs that killed her.

Joel betrayed Bart in order to conceal the fact that he was involved too, but as reality sinks in that his former friend is dead because of him, how on earth will he cope with the guilt?

Could it be this that ultimately pushes Joel closer to Cleo McQueen over the coming weeks?

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
