Lawyer James Nightingale attempts to get his hands on Maxine Minniver's medical records as he grows increasinlgy suspicious of her 'terminal illness'....
Lawyer James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) has agreed to represent Damon Kinsella (Jacob Roberts) in court but is using Maxine’s terminal illness as part of his defence.
However Maxine, who has been deceiving everyone about the state of her health for months in Hollyoaks, is in a panic and has so far managed to avoid giving him any medical records.
When James tries to contact the specialist doctor who treated her, Dr Levi Rochester (Cerith Flinn), he struggles to get hold of him and when he tries to speak to Doctor Misbah Maalik (Harvey Virdi) he also reaches a dead end.
As James starts to grow suspicious his next port of call is junior doctor Mitchell Deveraux (Imran Adams) which puts Maxine in a panic. Realising that James is about to speak to Mitchell, she races to get to the medic, before James does.
When James arrives at the hospital he spots Maxine already locked in conversation with Mitchell and quickly realises that her medical file is in Mitchell’s bag.
Thinking on his feet, crafty James decides to gatecrash the drinks that Mitchell is going to with Scott Drinkwell (Ross Adams) at The Dog. Can he get his hands on the crucial file when Mitchell is temporarily distracted?
Meanwhile Maxine’s husband Damon arranges a special meal for his wife at The Hutch and Liberty Savage (Abi Phillips) tries to cheer up a preoccupied Sienna Blake (Anna Passey) by taking a pregnancy test.
Liberty, who has agreed to act as a surrogate mum for Sienna and her boyfriend Brody Hudson (Adam Woodward) is hoping that it will be positive but are she and Sienna for more disappointment?
Elsewhere, Cleo McQueen (Nadine Mulkerrin) and her boyfriend Mitchell have the house to themselves but Cleo decides to ask Scott over too. Will the flirty spark between Scott and Mitchell lead to something again following their recent kiss?
