Vicky Grant’s (Anya Lawrence) life is on the line in Hollyoaks next week when she’s rushed to hospital after becoming unconscious while on a camping trip with a number of teens.
The popular character, who made her debut last year, is intent on leaving the village and is tasked with breaking such news to DeMarcus Westwood (Tomi Ade) later this week.
Felix (Richard Blackwood), meanwhile, gets wind of the news, and he discusses how he thinks a long distance relationship between the two teens won’t work, something which both DeMarcus and Vicky overhear.
DeMarcus struggles to hide his doubts about the situation, confiding in Charlie Dean (Charlie Behan) that he worries Vicky will move on, and later he contemplates leaving the village, moving to Margate with her.
Vicky, however, is not sure.
Charlie, meanwhile, comes up with an idea to throw the duo the best party ever, and he does his best to convince them to go camping in the woods.
Vicky and DeMarcus agree, with Charlie, Ella Richardson (Erin Palmer), Leah Barnes (Ela-May Demircan), and Shing Lin (Izzie Yip) all joining them, as they set about getting some alcohol – and lying to their parents about where they’re going!
Darren Osborne (Ashley Taylor Dawson) doesn’t buy Charlie’s excuses, but Charlie manages to convince his dad to let him go camping. Vicky, meanwhile, is embarrassed when Leah notices condoms in her bag, which leads to an awkward conversation about DeMarcus.
Afterwards, the teens run into something of a problem when the bus is cancelled, but Leah decides to steal dad Ste Hay’s (Kieron Richardson) cleaning van instead, with Shing Lin offering to drive.
They’re all set to go.
Problems arise, however, when two older boys stumble upon the campsite and ask to join the party, offering weed in return for alcohol. Leah convinces the group to let them stay.
Nancy (Jessica Fox), meanwhile, finds out where Charlie really is and she’s all set to interrupt, but Darren convinces her to let their son have fun.
Disaster ultimately strikes, with the party at the campsite spiralling out control as Vicky collapses. The teens are quick to try and wake her up, but it’s no use.
Vicky is rushed to hospital in a critical condition, while the parents try to figure out what happened.
Ste lashes out at Leah in a rage over her taking weed from strangers, while Nancy blames Darren for letting Charlie go camping in the first place, and Zara Morgan (Kelly Condron) and Cindy Cunningham (Stephanie Waring) interrogate Ella and Sing Lin.
Will Vicky be okay? Or will she die?
