Hollyoaks reveals new romance for Mandy

Hollyoaks has confirmed that Mandy Richardson (Sarah Jayne Dunn) will be asked out on a date by Dr Ali Shahzad (Raji James).

The popular character has been through a lot in recent months, following Ella’s (Erin Palmer) incarceration for Jordan Price’s (Connor Calland) murder.

Ella, as viewers know, initially kept shtum about her role in the crime, and Mandy encouraged her do so, as she pinned the blame on Charlie Dean (Charlie Behan) in order to divert attention from her daughter.

But the truth came out on her wedding day to Darren Osborne (Ashley Taylor Dawson), and she subsequently lost everything – and everyone.

Ella was given a youth rehabilitation order, meaning that she was allowed to return home, but Mandy struggled to mend her broken relationship with her daughter.

She’s been struggling as of late, and has suffered several panic attacks, which led her to Dr Ali.

Ali found her in the wake of her attack and took her home. Ella was livid, as she came to believe her mum had let her down again, after she failed to show up for their arranged lunch. 

Ali covered for Mandy, who begged him to keep quiet about her panic attacks, as she didn’t want anyone knowing the real reason why she didn’t show up.

It was clear that there was a connection between she and Ali, and next week, Ali makes a move on her!

The question is: what are his true motives?

That remains to be seen, but when Misbah Maalik (Harvey Virdi) bumps into a glammed up Mandy ahead of her date, she issues her with a warning to stay away from Ali!

Will Mandy listen to what Misbah is saying?

One to watch: Monday September 27 at 7pm on E4.
