Hollyoaks’ Arlo attacks Marie after drugs revelation

Hollyoaks spoilers follow for the latest episode on Channel 4 streaming, which airs on E4 tomorrow.

Hollyoaks' Arlo Fielding has attacked mum Marie in some upsetting scenes in the latest episode tonight (June 12).

The newest instalment of the soap began with Arlo attending a taster day at school. Marie was reluctant to let him go, but he was teased by other kids on the playground who called his mum a "smackhead".

He ran home and spoke to Abe about hiding Marie's recent drug overdose from him, and was comforted by his older brother, who encouraged him to give school another try.

"She's not perfect, I know that more anyone, but she's your mum," Abe said. "She's not had an easy life. She's trying her best, she's trying for you.

"If you don't go back [to school]... you'll always be known as the kid whose mum nearly died of a dodgy pill."

Later on, Marie returned from a day of drinking wine with Diane Hutchinson. With Abe there, Arlo pretended to be okay, and even told Marie that he has forgiven her.

However, when alone with his mum, Arlo lashed out at his mum for drinking, and pushed her away.

"If you cared about me, you wouldn't have taken drugs," he said, before screaming: "Don't hug me, you smell like drink!"
