Is Dave an old business associate of Fergus? (Picture: Lime Pictures)
The mysterious Dave (Dominic Power) has already caused controversy with the Hollyoaks locals, but it appears as if there’s more to him than meets the eye.
Upcoming scenes will see Trish Minniver (Denise Welch) left on edge after crossing paths with the newcomer.
But just what is it about Dave that has spooked her?
That remains to be seen, but later, Maxine (Nikki Sanderson) discovers that Trish is hellbent on moving away, and – in a bid to make her mum stay – she plays cupid.
Trish, however, already knows who her date is, leaving Maxine confused.
Could Dave perhaps be the mystery date that Maxine has set her mum up with? If so, it begs the question just how Trish knows the man in question?
Is Dave perhaps a former accomplice / business associate of Fergus’?
You’ll just have to wait and see.
Maxine, meanwhile, could be set to find out the truth about what it is that Trish is hiding, but will more conflict ensue between the mother and daughter duo?
Dave made his first appearance earlier this month, when he and Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter) fell out over a doll’s house that he’d bought from Ripley Lennox’s (Ki Griffin) stall.
Theresa wanted the doll’s house as a Christmas present for Kathleen-Angel, but her attention was soon elsewhere when Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) revealed that he was kicking her out of the flat before Christmas.
But who was the new owner of said flat? Why, Dave, of course!
