Jacqui and Rhys' romance to be tested
Hollyoaks' Jacqui McQueen and Rhys Ashworth's romance is to be tested as part of one of the biggest storylines the Channel 4 soap has ever experienced
Jacqui McQueen and Rhys Ashworth's romance is to be tested as part of a huge 'Hollyoaks' storyline.
The loved-up pair - played by Claire Cooper and Andrew Moss - will become involved in a plot during the first half of the year that will be one of the "biggest" the Channel 4 soap has ever seen.
Paul Marquess, executive producer of the Channel 4 soap, explained: "They have got the biggest story for the first half of 2011. I think it may be one of the biggest stories in 'Hollyoaks' history. It's very, very serious and I think it will really divide the audience.
"It will really test them and their relationship to the nth degree, and we'll see whether they can recover from it. For the first half of 2011, it's the big story."
However, Jacqui and Rhys won't be the only characters with huge storylines in the coming year, as Nancy Hayton - played by Jessica Fox - will also be involved in her "biggest story ever".
Paul added to Digital Spy: "Nancy has a massive story from the summer right the way through to the autumn. It might be Jess Fox's biggest story ever, which she's very excited about."
