And it looks like there’s more twists and turns to come, as Michael actor Emmett recently told Digital Spy: "Tobias [Beer] and Lisa [McGee] are great writers in their own right, but together they have scribed episodes at the end of which I needed to know more.

"So if it surprised me, I hope it surprises you. There will be plenty of twists and turns along the way."

Issuing a warning about the dark plot, the former Hollyoaks actor added: "It's a psychological thriller. Definitely not a comedy. If you're looking for a laugh, this isn't it. If you're looking for drama, suspense, a bit of horror and mystery, then you've come to the right place."
