Hollyoaks' James and Ste to get shocking news in Ella death story

Hollyoaks spoilers follow.

Hollyoaks' James Nightingale and Ste Hay are set to get some shocking news in the latest twist in the Ella Richardson death storyline.

Ste recently killed Ella in a road accident, eventually confessing his guilt to his husband, and while James initially urged him to go to the police, he changed tack after meeting with Ste's dealer Kane.

Instead, he told his husband that he didn’t need to tell the police and that he'd sorted everything out. James has now pinned Ella's death on Kane, threatening him in prison.

However, the tables have turned once again as Kane how now found himself the cellmate of James's son Romeo – who is himself in prison after killing Rayne Royce – meaning he now has a bargaining chip in his favour.

In new scenes set to air next week, as Kane learns that James is Ste's husband, James gets a visiting order from the drug dealer.

Kane then tells him he knows why he has framed him, and tells James that he must do what he says and work for him in order to keep Romeo safe.

Ste is shocked and begins to freak out to James, as Leah comes in crying after having another nightmare. James promises Leah that they will get through Ella's death as a family.

Are the walls closing in on Ste and James?
