Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Hollyoaks' special Christmas episode saw Sienna Blake and Luke Morgan make life-changing decisions, as both took drastic action in an attempt to protect their loved ones.
Sienna (Anna Passey) started Christmas Day in a rage, angrily telling Brody Hudson (Adam Woodward) that she wasn't interested in the idea of co-parenting baby Faith with her sister Liberty Savage (Jessamy Stoddart), who acted as a surrogate for Sienna and Brody and has now announced that she wants to keep Faith.
Upset, Sienna headed to see Warren Fox (Jamie Lomas) to vent her feelings and soon ended up in his bed. Later, Warren caught up to Sienna outside as she was leaving, and Sienna was tempted into kissing him again (with actress Anna Passey's real-life partner Kyle Pryor playing Warren for a brief shot) – an incident witnessed by Liberty.
After Brody presented Sienna with the thoughtful gift of a necklace representing Faith, Sienna softened and told Brody that she would let Liberty look after Faith for a couple of weeks.
But her moment with Brody was ruined when Liberty turned up and announced that she had just seen Sienna and Warren kissing.
Panicking that her secret was about to be exposed, Sienna lied to Liberty that she had done no such thing and that Liberty must have hallucinated the incident due to her post-partum psychosis.
Liberty and Brody both believed Sienna and a worried Liberty began to doubt whether she was capable of looking after Faith properly, leaving Sienna feeling very guilty as she tried to reassure Liberty.
Later in the day Sienna made a huge decision as she tracked down Liberty, gifting her a children's book and telling her that she should be Faith's mum permanently. Liberty and Brody were shocked but Sienna was insistent, calling Liberty "unspoilt" and telling her that Faith deserves "the best" as she handed the baby over.
But while the fight over baby Faith seems to be over for now, will Sienna really be able to let Liberty take permanent responsibility for her? And with Sienna's affair with Warren still under wraps, will Brody ever realise the truth?
Elsewhere, Luke (Gary Lucy), Cindy Cunningham (Stephanie Waring) and Ollie Morgan (Gabriel Clark) were having an equally disastrous Christmas. Ollie started the day by sleeping off a ketamine-induced hangover on the sofa, leaving Luke raging at Ollie's behaviour.
Annoyed at Cindy for her attempts to defend Ollie, Luke admitted that he was worried that Ollie was addicted to drugs. Things only went from bad to worse for the family when Ollie arrived home from a 'walk', only for another packet of ketamine to fall out of his pocket.
Furious Luke confronted his son, shouting: "What's so good about this stuff that you want to ruin your life?"
When Ollie retorted that Luke didn't understand, Luke shocked both his son and Cindy by announcing: "I want to know why Ollie does this stuff – if he can do it, so can I," before taking Ollie's ketamine himself in an attempt to get Ollie to see the situation from a different perspective.
As the effects of the drug took hold, Ollie was devastated to see his dad in such a terrible state. Once Luke sobered up, he and Cindy made a big decision and revealed to Ollie that they wanted him to move out and go to stay with the Maalik family.
But Ollie didn't take his eviction lying down, ranting at Luke and branding him a "rubbish dad".
"If I don't live under your roof I don't have to live by your rules. Addicts breed addicts," Ollie jibed, reminding his dad that he wasn't there for him in the past due to his alcoholism.
"I'm doing this because I love you," Luke insisted, but with Ollie later storming out of the house, it looks like their relationship has taken another major hit.
