Hollyoaks' Nancy Osborne is suspended from work next week after a new incident involving her step-daughter Frankie.

Nancy is also forced to move out of the Osborne house as she faces some damning accusations.

The drama begins next week as Frankie prepares to attend a ballet audition in Manchester.

Frankie is hoping that this new opportunity could take her away from the village, shielding her from her brother JJ's sexual abuse.

Charlie Dean continues to support Frankie over her decision and he even signs her consent form for the audition. In contrast, manipulative JJ is angry over the possibility that Frankie could leave.

When Frankie heads to a Manchester theatre for the audition, she desperately hopes to impress the judges. Her chances come under threat when she spots JJ watching her from the wings, distracting her.

Frankie desperately tries to reason with her evil brother, telling him how much dancing means to her. She also gets along well with the other girls at the audition, which provides hope for new friendships in the future.

JJ discovers that Frankie will be moving to London if she passes the audition. Their parents Darren and Suzanne are equally shocked when they find out.
