Mitchell Deveraux (Imran Adams) got quite the shock during last night’s episode of Hollyoaks, as he came to learn that newcomer Toby Faroe (Bobby Gordon) is actually his brother, but — as he attempted to get the truth from Martine (Kelle Bryan) during tonight’s instalment — an even biggest twist came along, as Celeste (Andrea Ali) was revealed to be their sibling.
Toby and Celeste arrived in the village with one goal and one goal only, and that was to infiltrate and ruin the Deveraux clan in whatever way they saw fit — a mission that, we were led to believe, was solely due to Toby being Mitchell’s twin brother, whom Martine gave away when he was a child.
Celeste’s role in the equation remained a mystery, as she often orchestrated the plans, but seemingly had no connection to the family itself — other than the fact that she was Toby’s ‘wife’, that is.
However, during tonight’s episode, the truth came to light, as — following Toby’s actions in the previous instalment — Martine reveals all to both Toby and Mitchell in regards to why she was unable to keep Toby.
Toby then revealed that he endured a miserable childhood — something which he blamed Martine for.
Later, Lisa (Rachel Adedeji) turned up at Toby’s flat and informed him about how she was abducted as a child. This prompted Toby to open up about his own childhood, and thus he revealed that he was locked in a room by the doctor who adopted him, so that she could study him for a book.
With the truth seemingly out, Martine had one more revelation to make, as she showed Mitchell a photo of he and Toby as babies, but then she unfolded said picture to reveal a baby girl too.
Meanwhile, Celeste had a birthday cake for Toby — but it was one with two candles. She proceeded to wish him happy birthday, and he wished her a happy birthday back – thus revealing that they’re not actually husband and wife, but rather brother and sister!
Speaking about keeping such a secret, actress Andrea Ali revealed: ‘It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life [laughs].’
‘The fans pick up on things very quickly, and there has been so much anticipation for a big reveal. It was such an exciting secret.’
‘A few of the cast members didn’t know when we first came in, so they were confused too! There was this mystery surrounding Toby and Celeste. We’re now able to have our own parts as individuals, and the audience can understand more about our backstory.’
Speaking about what’s to come for the character, Andrea said: ‘First and foremost I think she wants answers for herself, to have an understanding as to why she was abandoned. I don’t even think Toby and Celeste had an idea as to how far this would go, or what’s going to happen next.’
‘ She’s not as predictable as she may seem, and I think she may take a turn either way, depending on how she feels on the day. She is very temperamental…’
