Hollyoaks offers another frustrating twist in grooming storyline as Ollie lies about the identity of his abuser

Hollyoaks saw yet another shocking twist in its child grooming storyline tonight (August 31) as Ollie Morgan lied to dad Luke about the identity of his abuser.

Over the past few months, Buster (Nathan Sussex) has been grooming schoolboy Ollie (Aedan Duckworth), unbeknownst to anyone else in the village and tonight the soap kicked off a new stage in its storyline as Luke finds the inappropriate pictures that Buster Smith took of his teenage son.

The only problem is that Ollie later tells Luke that Scott Drinkwell is behind his abuse ordeal, meaning that Scott (Ross Adams) will wrongly come under fire for the pictures and the real abuser, Ollie’s football coach Buster Smith gets away with it again, leaving viewers frustrated:

Speaking about why his character Ollie lets Scott wrongly get the blame for his abuse ordeal, actor Aedan Duckworth shared that Ollie is afraid that if Buster is found out then everything that’s happened to him will become “real”.

“Ollie doesn’t want anyone to get the blame, he just wants to throw the scent away from Buster, because if people knew it was actually him, it would make everything real,” Aedan explained.

“He’s obviously devastated and feels unbelievably guilty towards Scott. He has taken out some of his troubles on him, and for this he can only say sorry.”

Will Ollie ever break his silence and reveal the truth about Buster?
