Hollyoaks' Ste Hay makes risky decision after crash

Hollyoaks spoilers follow from Wednesday's episode on Channel 4 streaming, which doesn't air on E4 until Thursday.

Hollyoaks has showed Ste Hay making a risky decision in the latest episode, following the tragic crash that took Ella Richardson's life that aired earlier in the week.

In tonight's (January 17) episode, Ste got one of his friends to get rid of the car that would link him to the accident, but he was far from being out of the woods.

The police turned up to search his house, although they were only looking for a burner phone that could have been used to contact James Nightingale's son Romeo when he was evading capture last week.

Still, having the authorities in his home put Ste on edge, while Leah broke down in tears thinking that the police suspected her for Ella's death.

James asked Ste for the car keys, but Ste replied that he took the cleaning van on the day of the accident. James instantly went to tell DS Anderson that his expensive car was stolen and complained about how it wouldn't be treated as a priority case, while Ste snuck Ella's striking red boot out of a cupboard and out of the premises.

An officer searched his bag before he got outside, however, and found the boot in it. Thankfully for him, the officer didn't think anything of it and let him go.

Ste ran to the woods and dumped the boot in a pile of rubbish, tearfully saying "I'm so sorry, Ella. I am so sorry," as he did.

Hollyoaks streams first online via Channel 4 each weekday at 7.30pm. Episodes then air on E4 the following day, before getting their YouTube premiere a week after that.

Selected omnibus episodes are available via Prime Video.
