Hollyoaks’ Karl Collins has revealed Louis Loveday may make a shocking escape attempt.
The actor said his character still believes Louis is being rehabilitated with Breda after he broke his legs, without realising she is a sinister serial killer who is set about causing his downfall.
But Breda is clearly capable of doing some dastardly deeds and, after Louis discovers who she has murdered before, he sets about trying to make his escape as soon as humanly possible.
Asked about what happens for Louis in next week’s episodes, he said: "He eventually thinks that he’s being drugged and kept sedated, and soon after realises that it’s probably the special tea that’s doing it… so, he then decides to stop drinking the tea.

"Breda lets him write a letter when he wants to get in touch with his family, but while he’s writing this letter he sees an impression on the paper from the previous page, which exposes Breda as the serial killer.
"He starts to bide his time and try to get away. He has a couple of attempts to escape, which are short-lived, and then next week, it all comes out that he’s discovered Breda’s history and he pleads for his life."
Of course, after discovering Breda’s hideous past, he realises he can’t mess with her when she makes some shocking confessions to him.
Karl continued: "She’s obviously a force to be reckoned with, and he’s not in the best physical state. I think he starts putting two and two together and concludes that she may have murdered her own dad too.

"She’s told Louis that her dad was abusive to her and her mother, and then she flippantly says that he fell down the stairs drunk and died – he realises that he’s in extreme danger.
If Louis gets away, however, Karl believes his character will go straight back to Simone, rather than trying to make things work with Leela.
He added: "They’ve been together since they were kids, they are each other’s true loves. They’ve been through so much together and they can’t live without each other.
"Louis realises he’s made a massive mistake by messing up his marriage to Simone, and I think he would like to turn the clock back, make amends, and be back with his true love.

"He’s going to go straight back to Simone without a shadow of a doubt."
Spoilers have already revealed that Simone turns up at the pig farm, which may be the key to his escape, as Karl also revealed: "When Simone turns up at the pig farm, he makes as much noise as he possibly can in his hostage situation.
"He’s desperate to get her attention, makes his way to the window, he’s tied up in the wheelchair and then falls to the floor, desperate to get away, but will he?
"Because he knows that even through everything, she will stand by him (she’s said as much before), and he thinks that the only person that’s going to understand him is going to be Simone. She’s known him for so many years that she really is the only person that he can trust in this situation.

"He knows that Breda looks after Baby Daniel, and Leela could say something to Breda and give it away. So, he knows the only person he can trust in these circumstances is Simone."
But will Louis make the escape, or will Breda kill him for his terrible deeds in sleeping with Simone, marrying Leela and sleeping with his former sister-in-law Martine at the same time?
