Today’s (April 16) first-look episode of Hollyoaks marked the start of its sex abuse plot involving football coach Buster – and fans are already fearing for their favourite characters.
The Channel 4 soap recently confirmed that newcomer Buster will abuse his position of power to groom Ollie Morgan, who was introduced as Luke’s teenage son earlier this year.
As well as hinting at Buster and Ollie’s complicated relationship, tonight’s episode saw Brody Hudson confess to Scarlett the truth about his traumatic past.

Although Brody didn’t mention Buster’s role in his abuse, we already know that he’s the person in question – something viewers aren’t at all happy with.
‘Protect Oliver Morgan and Brody Hudson from Buster Smith’, one fan wrote on Twitter, with another asking: “Just me that wanted to drag Oliver off the chair to protect him?”
Fans of the show were also quick to praise Hollyoaks for its decision to deal with such an issue, singling out the actors’ performances as already “incredible”.
Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
