In the new Hollyoaks Winter Trailer, released on Monday November 19 Jonny is seen for the first time as he tells Ste: “I know you’re angry, I’ve got your back.”
Ste then says: “Those Maaliks deserve everything they get.”
And Jonny adds: “I’m on your side.”
Elsewhere in the trailer, serial killer Breda McQueen (Moya Brady) looks set to kill again, just weeks after she murdered Russ Owen (Stuart Manning), and it was revealed she was responsible for the deaths of Carl Costello (Paul Opacic) and Glenn Donovan (Bob Cryer),
In the clip, she is seen standing over a lifeless body saying: “Sorry, bad dads don’t get second chances.”
What’s more, Sinead Shelby (Stephanie Davis) looks set to come to blows with Sienna Blake (Anna Passey) after growing convinced she is after her husband Laurie Shelby (Kyle Pryor).
It doesn’t look like an easy winter for Sinead when she is exposed as a former prostitute by newcomer Donna-Marie Quinn (Lucy-Jo Hudson), who doesn’t take fools gladly.

To make matters worse, he’s been sleeping with Simone, and could end up in prison if he marries Leela.
Phew, who said life in Soapland wasn’t complicated!
