Hollyoaks aired dramatic scenes on Friday (September 3) as Sami Maalik confronted Shaq Qureshi over his relationship with Verity Hutchinson.
Fans know that Shaq and Verity just spent the night together, though she seemed keen to put their dalliance behind them as she's in a relationship with Sami. Verity told Shaq that Sami "can never find out about this" and she was just "trying to comfort him" by jumping into bed with him.
Shaq had very different feelings about what happened and made it clear he wanted them to be together, though Verity begged him not to tell Sami about what happened.
Verity seemed so determined to stay with Sami following her night of passion that she later suggested to him at The Dog that they take a big step by moving out of the Maalik home to find their own place. Sami agreed, telling her he wanted to think of their future together.
But when Shaq walked in and heard the two talking, he clearly wasn't quite so excited about the idea.
A pretty major spanner was then thrown into the works when Theresa (who recently got dumped by Shaq) spotted the twosome chatting as Sami got up to go to the bar. Despite Shaq telling Verity he would keep their secret following a conversation with Misbah, Theresa put two and two together knowing that her former boyfriend had already admitted to feelings for someone else – realising it was Verity.
Theresa mentioned to Sami, who also witnessed Shaq and Verity's chat, that their split happened because of Shaq's feelings for "someone else", which also lead him to get suspicious that something could have gone on between the two.
A clearly irked Sami then returned home and decided to confront Shaq about what was really going on. Just as Verity walked in – but still seemingly unaware of just how far the two really went by spending the night together – he told Shaq: "I know about you and Verity," leaving the two looking horrified.
Is the truth about to come out?
