Hollyoaks shocker as Mandy Richardson discovers she's pregnant
Hollyoaks‘ Mandy Richardson will get life-changing news next week when she discovers that she’s pregnant with her and Darren’s baby.
Mandy (Sarah Jayne Dunn) is only now adjusting to life without Luke (Gary Lucy) and trying to keep the peace with Darren’s (Ashley Taylor Dawson) ex Nancy (Jessica Fox), when she decides to take a pregnancy test after feeling under the weather. To her shock, the test turns out positive!
With Simone’s (Jacqueline Boatswain) doubts running through her head about whether Darren will welcome the news, Mandy questions whether it’s the right time to come clean — even though she’d love to be a mum again.
Little does she know that Darren has already started fooling around behind her back with ex-wife Nancy, throwing another wrench into any possibility of a happy outcome to the pregnancy news.
In a new interview, Sarah Jayne Dunn reveals that there will definitely be a rough road ahead for the couple when Nancy does eventually find out about the baby.
“They’ve talked about having a baby together, but this wasn’t planned for right now,” she admitted. “I think she’s worried he’ll freak out and not want the baby.”
As for Nancy’s reaction, the actress hinted: “It’s actually Darren who tells Nancy about the pregnancy, and Mandy only finds out she knows later on. Understandably, she’s a bit bitter to say the least.”
The love triangle will soon become a love square once again because Luke will be back for at least a short stay, right in the middle of all of this baby drama.
“Luke comes into her life again and she has to come to terms with her new situation, along with some unexpected problems,” she added.
The actress also offered some insight on her character as a mother, explaining that she was keen for viewers to see another side of Mandy through this story.
“She’s always been a brilliant mum with a lot of love for her children,” she said. “Her first baby sadly died of cot death, and she struggles with the grief of this. Her daughter Ella is the love of her life.
“She did have a troubled time when Ella was taken into care down to Luke’s drinking, but Mandy would do anything for her children and has stepped up as a fab step-mum to Ollie.”
Hollyoaks airs at 6.30pm on Channel 4 on Mondays through Fridays, with first-look episodes premiering at 7pm on E4.
