Billy thinks it’s funny that Todd is jealous of Drew. Later, Drew stirs up trouble when he asks Todd what he and Billy have planned for their future together. Todd is certain that Drew is going to make a move on Billy and when he hears that Drew and Billy are having a quiet dinner together, Todd intrudes, accusing Drew of trying to steal his man. However, Drew reveals his real reason for moving to town, leaving Todd and Billy stunned by the truth.

Ste tries to do so, but during their discussion, Harry finds that one of Ste’s memories of that night doesn’t track with the real events.

Certain that Ste is innocent, Harry makes a scene during Ste’s court hearing to get it delayed so he can talk to Ste about his suspicions.

That’s it for this edition of Gays Of Our Lives. Please share your comments on the thoughts and opinions expressed in this week’s column below. See you next week!



  1. Unter Uns from Germany seems to be building towards a gay romance for Ringo – he has been eyeing up Valentin, the teenager he’s tutoring, like crazy and his friends are starting to cotton on, although Valentin’s adorably oblivious (he’s only had girlfriends to date, but he is 18 so maybe he will turn out to be bi?)

  2. I’m in complete agreement about the Mac story on Hollyoaks. Last week it crossed into being tiresome, and Marnie has ceased to be amusing. I haven’t missed Ste at all and wouldn’t mind if the show just had him convicted and sent to jail – off-screen, of course. Kudos to the writer who gave Warren the “Kardashian wannabee and Mrs Doubtfire” line when talking about Neeta and Sally. It’s completely in character for him, and his delivery was so deadpan that I couldn’t help but laugh out loud.

    The highlight of EastEnders for me was the Have You Ever game and how Ben didn’t hesitate to take a drink when Jay asked about having naughty dreams about someone else in the room. This is the Ben I’ve come to like so much. It would have been a nice touch and added more dimension to the scene if Johnny had been invited, too. No doubt he would have joined Abi in taking a drink for having caught his parents having sex, and it would have made the reason for Ben’s drink more ambiguous.
