Newcomer Dillon Ray is welcomed to the village by his cousin Imran and DeMarcus in Hollyoaks.

New arrival, Dillon Ray (Nathaniel Dass), is given the special Hollyoaks treatment in tonight’s episode on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings).  

Dillon, who is Misbah Maalik’s (Harvey Virdi) nephew, arrived in Chester after a big row erupted with his mother and he was booted out of the family home. 

His Aunty Misbah has welcomed him into the fold and tonight his cousin, Imran Maalik (Ijaz Rana) is on hand to give him a tour.

Dillon's excited about the prospect of starting school at Hollyoaks’ High and making new friends and keen to get the lowdown from Imran. 

However, as Imran takes him round all the local spots he realises he’s haunted by lots of past traumas and that staying in Hollyoaks is triggering constant reminders of things he’d rather forget.

In a shock move, Imran suddenly comes to a BIG decision!

Elsewhere, Peri Lomax (Ruby O’Donnell) is harbouring the huge secret that her girlfriend, Juliet Nightingale (Niamh Blackshaw) was unable to receive her recent planned transplant. 

Juliet, who needed the operation to help treat her cancer, doesn’t want to tell her mum, Donna-Marie Quinn (Lucy-Jo Hudson), because she doesn't think Donna-Marie could cope with any additional worry. 

Juliet promises Peri she’ll break the news to her mum once things have settled down a bit.

Meanwhile, Juliet’s big brother, Romeo Nightingale (Owen Warner) is struggling with Juliet’s health worries and spending more time than ever with his new girlfriend, Rayne Royce (Jemma Donovan). 

Influencer Rayne is oblivious to Donna-Marie’s recent struggles and Juliet's not happy when she walks in on Romeo modelling a new underwear brand for Rayne’s army of followers and acting as if he hasn’t got a care in the world! 

After feeling Juliet's wrath, Rayne tries to comfort Romeo and tells him that she loves him. 

However Romeo’s reaction ISN’T what she was hoping for!

Later on, Romeo confides in his best mate, Prince McQueen (Malique Thompson-Dwyer) and admits that he was thrown by Rayne using the L-word. 

He confesses that it brought up past emotions of his late wife, Lily McQueen (Lauren McQueen) who tragically died after contracting sepsis. 

Prince has some comforting words for Romeo and later on he’s feeling better about things. 

However, just as he’s feeling more optimistic, he stumbles across something on girlfriend Rayne’s phone that she definitely DIDN’T want him to see! 

What has Romeo discovered and will this be the end for the young couple?
