Hollyoaks to kill off Fraser Black
'Hollyoaks' gangster Fraser Black is to be killed off in a dramatic new plot.
The menacing bar boss - played by Jesse Birdsall - meets his untimely end in a whodunnit storyline, the Channel 4 soap have confirmed in their spring trailer.
Several names will be in the frame, with the clip suggesting Fraser's protégée Trevor Royle (Greg Wood) finds out the truth about his boss' involvement in his father's death, Ste Hay (Kieran Richardson) seen by a burning car as he issues a warning to the sinister businessman and Joe Roscoe (Ayden Callaghan) waking from his coma.
A source told Digital Spy: ''The village will be left not puzzled about who had a motive, but who didn't. Residents will be looking across the dinner table not knowing if they are sharing mealtimes with the person responsible.''
The trailer also includes footage of Sinead Roscoe (Stephanie Davis) in a frantic dash to reach her baby daughter Katy before her health takes a turn for the worse, and Cindy Cunningham (Stephanie Wareing) appearing to confess to her involvement in the murder of Dr. Paul Browning, leaving her accomplices Lindsey Butterfield (Sophie Austin) and Mercedes Browning (Jennifer Metcalfe) in line for questioning.
Spring storylines will also see love in the air for Holly Cunningham (Amanda Clapham) and Jason Roscoe (Alfie Browne-Sykes) as she finally confirms her love for him, and Tom Cunningham (Ellis Hollins) and Peri Lomax share their first kiss.
However, Peri (Ruby O'Donnell) is later seen in hospital, while there is also shock for Maxine Minniver (Nicki Sanderson) who discovers she is pregnant - but with her abusive lover Patrick Blake (Jeremy Sheffield) having had a vasectomy, it looks likely a paternity riddle is on the cards.
John-Paul McQueen's (James Sutton) agony continues as her faces court for his attack on Robbie Roscoe (Charlie Wernham), but the schoolboy offers him a lifeline when he tells former friend Finn O'Connor(Keith Rice) he plans to confess all about their bullying, including his pal's rape of their teacher.
'Hollyoaks' airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.17-03-2014
