Hollyoaks villain Mac Nightingale is going to make a shock return next week.
The evil former pub labdlord has spent months in hospital unable to harm his family after he fell out of a window at The Dog.
He was later diagnosed with locked in syndrome.
Moved to a specialist facility, Mac’s family were left free of his poisonous behaviour.
But now next week he’s going to make a bombshell return and threaten them all.
His youngest son Alfie will be the first to be contacted by his deranged father on the phone.
The troubled teen will be surprised to hear from Mac and his insistence that he has heard from his father means trouble for him.
While Alfie knows what he heard, concerns grow that his mental illness has returned and that he imagined the phone call.
Desperate to prove that he isn’t ill again and that Mac really is back, he decides to visit his father at the hospital.
A concerned Yazz and Marnie follow him hoping that it is his illness making him hear voices again, rather than Mac being truly back.
Unfortunately their worst fears come true.
It is then revealed that not only is Mac back and free of his locked in syndrome, but that he is able to get out of bed.
Having defied all the odds, Mac’s return is a shock and not a happy one for his victims.
