Various Dates = We normally put a date, when a certain event has occurred, in brackets after we talk about it, this is essentially to give strength to what we are saying and lets you, the reader, check it out if you dare to doubt us, although we are a fun site we do try where we can to be truthful and factual. When we use "Various dates" instead it's normally when we say something that even the basic JP fan would not have a problem with and thus doesn't need to be checked i.e. "JP works as a part time DJ in the Loft"

 

 

 

(rather than surname linking like we had before, this time around we are going by first name order)

Aleksander Malota

 

Aleksander Malota (Jon Lolis) became JP's brother in law when Alec married Jacqui (March 23rd, 2007), not out of love but because he was an immigrant and had to marry a British citizen to stay in the country longer term, get a job and earn money for his family back in Albania. JP was never supportive of his sister and Alec as a couple because early on he discovered that it wasn't a "true" romance when Jacqui had confided in JP about what she was being Jacqui and Alekpushed to do, and there after attempted to put a stop on things (various dates). Nonetheless in the end he still went along with it, (dragging his feet as he went) and even attended Alec's stag party (21st of March, 2007 ).

 

 

Married Alec becomes increasingly attracted to Carmel, and before long the pair embark on an affair, JP again discovers what's going on (May 10th, 2007), and is beaten down into keeping it under wraps, but when Myra assumes that JP and Alec are having the affair the truth is exposed (May 11th, 2007). Eventually things calm down and Alec, Jakqui, Tony and Carmel try to keep up the shams; Tony is with Jacqui, Carmel with Alec and they all live in Tony's flat, and swap partners whenever some else is around. But it all breaks apart when Jacqui loses Tony's baby and everyone thinks Alec is the father. Alec decides the best thing to do is to leave Hollyoaks. He leaves Carmel with a note tapped to her mirror telling her he will always love her (August 16th, 2007), although he pops back in July 08, he doesn't get to meet up with JP again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ashworth's

 

The Ashworth's are linked to JP only by the families youngest daughter Hannah, Josh (Sonny Flood), Rhys, (Andy/Andrew Moss) Suzanne (Suzanne Hall) and Neville (Jim Millea) only tend to interact with JP as a secondary character. There are few to none, notable scenes between them. Suzanne tells Myra JP has dumped Hannah because he is gay (8th Of February 2007). The Ashworths live in the flat above the pub.

Barnes's

 

Like the Ashworth's the Barnes Family are only linked to JP by Sarah the oldest daughter and through Amy (Ashley Slanina-Davies) who is best friends with Michaela. Mike (Tony Hirst) have very little to do with JP. They all live at flat 3 Oakdale Drive.

 

 

 

 

 

Bobby McQueen

 

 

Is a dog that the McQueen's used to have. It died and Myra held a funeral in the front garden, with a photo and lots of candles around it (September 17th, 2008).

Carmel McQueen

 

Carmel McQueen (Gemma Merna) appears to be ever so slightly blonde, compare her to Jade Goody if you will, but don’t assume they are anything alike. She is one of Myra's daughters, and the sister of John Paul and Michaela. Carmel and Alec in bed, in pinkHalf-sister to Jacqui, Mercedes and Tina. Carmel has a great singing voice, Carmel like her mother is a Catholic. She is the only one of her siblings to keep the faith and attends Mass (April 6th, 2007).

 

Carmel has been very supportive towards brother John Paul after he came out i.e. “Rainbow Sandwiches” and signing JP up to a gaydar style website to meet "friends" (February 26th, 2007) she was always happy to look out for her younger brother even before he came out, after Craig had punched JP in The Dog when he thought he was after Sarah, the following day Carmel confronted his friends about it (December 28th, 2006). Aleksander Malota (The guy Jacqui married) is now with Carmel. Carmel currently works in the beauty salon Evissa as a nail technician. The girl is always unlucky in love, falling for the bad guy or one of her sisters boyfriends/husbands. JP returns the support in his own brotherly way (various dates) sometimes offering his own experiences as a form of guidance (August 16th, 2007), and offering brute force when Ste mugs her in the street for her purse (March 5th, 2008).

 

Carmel and the rest of the McQueen's come together when Niall pushes Tina down the stairs and she goes into premature labour giving birth to baby Max (July 2nd, 2008).

 

JP picks Carmel's wedding over Kieron's funeral, after Jacqui hits him. The plan if for him to give her away in place of their (shared) father (September 15th, 2008). When Calvin arrives they do just that (September 16th, 2008).

 

Carmel along with the rest of the McQueen's are held hostage in St Eustace Church by Niall/Matthew when he reveals to all who he really is. Myra is asked 6 questions by Niall for each one she gets wrong she must pick a child to die, answering only two questions correctly she is forced to save the lives of Michaela, because she is the youngest and Tina, because she has a child. Carmel, in Niall HorrorBefore anything can happen Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom arrive at the church, ruining Niall's plan, he blows everyone up instead (October 16th, 2008).

 

The majority of the McQueen's along with Dom and Niall end up in the basement when the floor gives way. Tina dies in Dom's arms after she makes him promise to tell baby Max about her when he is older. Everyone else including Niall get out of the church alive, his ghostly reflection on the back of an ambulance door watching the rest of the McQueen's grieve... (October 17th, 2008).

 

 

All the McQueen's along with Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom head to the hospital to recover. John Paul tells them he is going back to Dublin, Carmel tells JP Tina was so proud of him and thinks he is making the right choice by not sticking around. He will always be part of the McQueen's no matter where he is and makes him promise not to forget that (October 20th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cindy Cunningham

Cindy Cunningham/Stephanie Waring

 

Cindy (Stephanie Waring) is Max's sister and works in M.O.B.S. She has very little to do with JP, she was pleased Kieron helped her out at the juice bar in September and then annoyed with JP when Kieron left after they had a fight about getting engaged to soon (September 2nd, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Craig Dean

 

Craig Dean (Guy Burnet) was, and to a extent still is, a very important person in JP's life, the pair together embarked on possibly one Guy Burnet striking a poseof the most exciting relationships either man will ever have. Craig had been living in Chester for the previous five years with his family before they met, during that time he has had some crazy adventures, formed some unusual friendships and made some life changing choices. Problems with his previous friendships and home disruptions meant he suffered in his A2 level exams in 2006, causing him to re sit the entire year and start afresh. Bad luck for him but Jake had just killed someone by driving like a manwhore on speed, and that person was keen to hold a life long grudge, so with no friends for support Craig had to endure the bullying and taunts. That is until his Knight in shining armor turned up in the form of new boy John Paul (September 6th, 2006) who was kind hearted enough to set off a fire alarm to get him out of a fight with Sonny and Justin. The pair went to lunch one day and had a deep conversation about life and they were instant BFF's (September 7th, 2006).

 

The boys bond over friend type stuff, doing various things, looking out for one another and sharing each others interests (various dates), its not long before Craig's attraction to Sarah creates a new group of four (October 30th, 2006), and the group have lots of fun adventures with lashing of ginger beer and generally having a good old gay time. Sarah and Craig now a couple push JP JP tells Craig he loves himand Hannah together, and everything is fine until Hannah's 18th birthday arrives (January 26th, 2007), JP being eaten up with jealous and confusing feelings for his best friend eventually spews out his feelings and reveals to Craig that he loves him. Boy does Craig feel stupid for not seeing the signs, but either way he doesn't like boys, but is attracted strongly to JP because he is the first proper male friend he has ever had, and arranges for things to go back to normal (January 29th, 2007). There is a niggling doubt in Craig about JP actually being straight and the matter is pressed for several weeks, with JP constantly saying he is straight (various dates), the boys both get drunk at the dance off competition, and lots of fumbling and laughing Craig kisses JP (6th of February 2007), in front of Hannah who tells everyone. Craig ask's JP to pretend it never happened, but JP gives up pretending and comes out (7th, 8th and 9th February 2007), JP get's a lot of stick Craig feels like a 3rd wheeland Craig isn't strong enough to stand up for him, so he joins in and ends up attacking JP during a football game (February 9th, 2007).

 

It takes a long time for things to mend, he eventually gets back fully with Sarah (March 5th, 2007), and later still makes things up to JP (April 12th, 2007). This time JP has a new boyfriend and Craig grows increasingly green eyed, he shrugs it off as not being able to spend enough time with his best friend, but it later becomes more intense when Craig in a crying snotty mess goes around to JP's and the pair have sex (May 16th, 2007). From the 16th of May to the 6th of September 2007, we watch Craig struggle to accept how his friendship with JP has, and is, changing to something much deeper, and how he deals with the changes within himself, its a violent and turbulent time for all involved (various dates), until Sarah finally discovers the truth by walking in on the pair (September 6th, 2007). Craig and JP now fully exposed become a fully fledged JP looks at happy pictures of him and Craigcouple and attempt to maintain there relationship the best they can, unfortunately Craig's perception of how others see him is too hard to deal with and with much less support from him family than what JP had, he decides they should leave and go make a new life together in Dublin (September 14th, 2007). Although JP happily agrees it all turns sour when Craig is unable to show JP publicly how much he loves him, and JP leaves Craig to board the flight to Dublin alone. Craig heads off a heart broken man with all his bridges behind burnt to a smoulding ruin (September 20th, 2007). Christmas day 2007, and JP is in the Dog with his family when he receives a text from Craig reading "Merry Christmas. Miss You. Love 2CU in Dublin!" (December 25th, 2007).

 

Craig is still talked about even though he has left Chester, Kris mentions him twice in a quib about JP always going for the wrong guys (5th and 6th of March 2008), and Frankie mentions having a gay son to Father Kieron, which he late brings up with JP who says "He was my friend, you no.." (March 11th, 2008). Craig is mentioned heavily on the 1st of April when JP unloads to Hannah about his feelings that still linger for his ex, essentially JP doesn't feel he will ever get over him, and nothing with anyone else will match what he had with Craig. A day later he tells Kieron he isn't Craig. Towards the start of May he tells Kris he is over Craig now (May 8th, 2008). JP explains to Hannah what he had with Craig was one sided what he has with Kieron is different because they both want it (May 21st, 2008).

 

JP and Craig over health drinksCraig comes back to see his family after all the crazy things that have struck the family in recent months. When he is barred from the Flat at the Dog by Darren (they are hiding Jack up there) he goes for a walk and runs into JP at M.O.B.S, the pair hang out for a while, talking about things from the past, and what's happened in the last year.

 

When they get back to The Dog, Darren forces Craig into probing JP about his feelings for Kieron. It's awkward for JP seeing as the pair have just had their first major fight since getting engaged, nonetheless Craig says he is pleased for JP and they share a close hug. Kieron see's and gets angry and storms off, upset and confused (September 2nd, 2008).

 

The next few days Craig works his magic as he tries to get JP back on side (September, 3rd and 4th 2008). Finally on the day of Kieron's murder Craig talks to JP about his true feelings. How his recent relationships have been nothing because he is still in love with his ex. JP has none of it and goes home, only to be caught off guard by Craig who comes calling and tries to kiss him as soon as the door is opened, he tries several times before JP gives in and the pair embrace, before going upstairs to his old room for sex. JP leaves Craig in his bed to go see Kieron to tell him the truth only for Kieron to die in his arms (September 5th, 2008).

Outside The Dog, one last time

When Craig finds out he feels guilty, and tries to talk to JP several times but is pushed away at each attempt, with JP finally saying they can never have a future (September 8th, 2008).

 

A few weeks later and the pair cross paths at Carmels Wedding reception, they talk about what's happened but as usual Craig keeps some of his feelings hidden and an awkward air settles over them (September 15th, 2008), despite this they agree to meet the next day for a drink. Myra and the rest of the McQueen's decide to have their own remembrance service for Kieron, JP doesn't want to take part in what Myra has planned as it was also done for their pet dog Bobby. Instead Jacqui takes JP to the cemetery and leaves him alone to talk to Kieron in his own way. He is late back for the drink with Craig and misses him completely, so Craig goes to the McQueen's and drags him out to the SU for their drink, over which they re bond, Craig telling JP he has changed and neither are responsible for Kieron's death. JP tells Craig to find his "Kieron" and never let go, the pair part on good company with a long huge. After Craig has gone JP finds a ticket in his pocket for a one way trip to Dublin... (September 17th, 2008).

 

JP is busy the next day, in between thinking about Craig's At the stationoffer and Niall trying to kill him, he doesn't make any firm choices. Craig meanwhile frets about what will happen next, he does make it up with Sarah and Hannah. The trio reflect and forgive. Sarah finally moves on. Craig finally moves on (September 18th, 2008).

 

Craig waits for JP after leaving him a message to meet him at The Dog, but Niall deletes the message and keeps JP in the flat... at Three o'clock as planned Craig leaves to catch his train. JP rushes to The Dog after his talk with Myra but misses him, he catches up to him at the train station and he starts to shout at Craig. As quickly as it started JP tells Craig he loves him, he has always loved him and their past is something he wouldn't change for all of the world. Craig tells JP he loves him and they kiss in front of everyone on the platform. Boarding the train together they hold hands, and Craig jokes that when they are in Dublin they need to tell everyone JP is his cousin "Steve" because everyone thinks he is straight (September 19th, 2008).

 

 

After being abducted by Niall, JP returns to Dublin and Craig (October 20th, 2008).

 

 

During their trip away in Dublin in November 2008 (Hollyoaks Later/Late Night Hollyoaks) Craig reveals to Steph that JP isn't over what happened with Niall, he also confides in her they are fighting about it. Later that week after Niall returns and abducts Tom then Steph in the processes bashing Craig around a bit, he ends up dead when he leaps backwards off a cliff edge after Craig tells him Steph could never love the monster he is (November 2008).

Darren Osborne

 

 

Darren and The DonkeyDarren Osborne (Ashley Taylor-Dawson) is Craig's immature step-brother, and a pretty rotten one at that, throughout the years Darren is mean and vile towards Craig and JP both when they are a couple and before, but it would not be easy, or perhaps even fair, to brand him homophobic although he picks at that part of their personality and relationship it comes across as just "something to use" rather than a vindictive prejudice (various dates). Almost endless examples can be cited where Darren will say or do something which undermines Craig's confidence in himself whether it was suggesting Sarah was too good for him, or jibes about him being with JP. Generally Darren has a negative and bitter personality and takes it out on people he is close too, in his own way he did seem sad when Craig left (September 20th, 2007).

 

Darren is still immature, and ribs JP about his sexuality several times (various), during a pub dare he does it multiple times (May 7th, 2008), he still goads Craig also, calling him Graham Norton (September 18th, 2008).

 

Darren seems to think JP and Craig are back together again as soon as Craig comes to the Pub with JP after arriving home, he points out Craig's love of colonic's and JP's new hobby of snatching priests away from the Church (September 2nd, 2008).

 

He almost takes delight in telling JP, Craig has already left for the train station and mocks "Did you really think he would wait around forever?" (September 19th, 2008).

 

The McQueen's are held hostage in St Eustace Church by Niall/Matthew when he reveals to all who he really is. Myra is asked 6 questions by Niall for each one she gets wrong she must pick a child to die, answering only two questions correctly she is forced to save the lives of Michaela, because she is the youngest and Tina, because she has a child. Before anything can happen Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom arrive at the church, ruining Niall's plan, he blows everyone up instead (October 16th, 2008).

 

The majority of the McQueen's along with Dom and Niall end up in the basement when the floor gives way. Tina dies in Dom's arms after she makes him promise to tell baby Max about her when he is older. Everyone else including Niall get out of the church alive, his ghostly reflection on the back of an ambulance door watching the rest of the McQueen's grieve... (October 17th, 2008).

Danny Valentine

Danny up against a wall

 

Danny Valentine (David Judge) has very little to do with JP, other than on/off dating Hannah, (December 2007 onwards) and being partly responsible for almost killing him along with the rest of the party goers at the Students flat warming party (October 11th, 2007).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dean's/Osborne's

 

Deans and Osborns (well some of them anyway)The Dean's and Osborne's are two families that come together to form one. Linked by Frankie Osborne (nee Dean) (Helen Pearson) and Jack Osborne (Jimmy McKenna). The Deans; Jake (Kevin Sacre), Steph (Carley Stenson) and Craig (Guy Burnett), and the one other Osborne; Darren (Ashley Taylor-Dawson) and foster child Newt, who all lived together upstairs in the flat above The Dog (Jake now lives in a mental home after trying to kill Nancy and Charlie, and Craig lives in Dublin with JP) The family have constant interactions with JP, and more details are explored in the individual character entries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dominic Reilly

 

Dominic Reilly (John Pickard) is JP's brother in law.

Dom and Tina, happier times...

The days following the engagement between JP and Kieron, Kris, Niall, Dom and Tina all find out and are happy for them (July 25th 2008).

 

The McQueen's are held hostage in St Eustace Church by Niall/Matthew when he reveals to all who he really is. Myra is asked 6 questions by Niall for each one she gets wrong she must pick a child to die, answering only two questions correctly she is forced to save the lives of Michaela, because she is the youngest and Tina, because she has a child. Before anything can happen Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom arrive at the church, ruining Niall's plan, he blows everyone up instead (October 16th, 2008).

(October 17th, 2008).

Elliot Bevan

 

Elliot can believe all these men in his room! Elliot Bevan (Garnon Davies) is a bit of a stereotype. Welsh and a total geek with both traits exploited fully in his storylines (various dates), he and JP get along well, dispute a potentially disastrous first meeting when Elliot comes home to find his room filled with JP's things (November 8th, 2007). Together they work well as a duo and band together (December 6th, 2007) when they bond over their mutual dislike of Kris's OTT personality, and set up a pirate radio station. It's made clear early on that JP and Elliot will be nothing more than good friends (December 7th, 2007) and when JP strips off in front of Elliot who doesn't even bat an eyelid it seems fair to say they wont be the next McDean (January 9th, 2008). Elliot shows early on he can be a tad unhinged when he continually ropes JP into attacking Kris on air (various dates), but he quickly grows to like JP and shows him a great deal of respect when Elliot almost admits to Kris and Sarah in The Dog he was the one responsible for the radio hijacks, and in a feat of self sacrifice JP comes forward and says it was him, with Sarah shouting and personally attacking JP for always causing problems (January 11th, 2007).

 

One day in May Elliot goes around to ask JP for some help in fixing his telescope, because Myra is getting close to finding out JP and Kieron are an item, he asks Elliot to pretend to be his boyfriend, to which he replies "I'm not a gay", with some quick bargaining its not long before the pair are "lovers", which finishes off with Elliot and JP having a lovers tiff and ending their short "affair" (May 26th, 2008) all in order to fool Myra.

 

The boys are together again when they collect their results for the first year at university (July 15th, 2008).

 

After JP has gone, and The Dog is taken over by the Ashworth Family and Neville Ashworth renames the pub "The Jolly Roger" it, with Spikes help, attracts a gay following. In "getting to know the gays" Elliot points out that although JP was gay he drinks beer.

Frankie Osborne

 

Frankie Osborne (Helen Pearson) is Craig's mother. In the olden days years and years before JP arrived in town Frankie was a bit of a show girl going on gigs, and dancing around, perhaps some singing you know, and she was pretty gay friendly as well as a fun, although at times embarrassing, mum to have (February 5th, 2007) when JP comes out she get's cold and some confusing scenes imply she might even be homophobic (20th and 23rd of July 2007) (either a hidden trait all along or the script writers needing someone to throw a spanner in the works). Frankie looking mega evilShe doesn't like JP, and caught up in Craig's and Sarah's relationship she throws a engagement party and is quite possibly the most shocked out of everyone when JP and Craig are exposed as a couple (September 12th, 2007). Knowing Craig all his life and aware of how much his dad cheating on her and running out effected Craig she is horrified he could have done it to Sarah, less impressed still when Craig and JP tell their families it's not just a fling but actually something much much deeper (September 13th, 2007). Frankie has a tough ride compared to Myra in accepting that Craig is gay/bi, and undoubtedly that lack of support is one of the main reasons Craig is unable to cope in Chester any longer and feels he needs to spread his wings (various dates). To date Frankie still isn't BFF with JP and likely associates him with Craig leaving, although random comments and texts suggest she is coming around to accepting and supporting Craig with who he is. When she is talking to Father Kieron in The Dog she casually reveals she has a gay son without batting an eyelid (March 11th, 2008).

 

When Craig returns from Dublin in September the pair are the same as always, sexuality not even an issue, nor mentioned on screen (September 2008). She still doesn't like JP though, thinking he is selfish and always looking out for number one (September 19th, 2008).

Hannah Ashworth

 

Hannah Ashworth (Emma Rigby) is an important figure in JP's life; not only did he lose his virginity to her, and her's to him (December 19th, 2006), she was one of the first people JP revealed he was gay Jp and Hannah Studyto (February 7th, 2007). Hannah is a very young and inexperienced teenager, she also has a large heart, which might explain why both JP and Hannah were in principle an ideal match.

 

Later Hannah is unable to move on from JP and still in part thinks they might be able to get back together this continues for several months from Early February 2007 to early June 2007. She tries several things from being "Just friends" and buying him presents (March 20th, 2007) to wrecking future love interests by going along to JP's dates with Spike (April 11th, 2007) and slagging and bad mouthing him. Eventually she has to face facts and accept they would never be the happy couple they were once before whenJP and Hannah do some dirty dancing she is confronted with JP having a passionate kiss with Spike during SnogFest 2007 (April 16th, 2007).

 

She doesn't like JP and Spike being together but gradually accepts he isn't ever going to like and love her in a sexual way, which is what she wants. Unfortunately her obsessive nature and easily led attitude means she is easy pray for Melissa who takes Hannah down the path of anorexia. There are several references to Hannah feeling unattractive because of JP "turning gay" and moving away from women i.e. she turned him gay (various dates). This to the viewer is clearly nonsense, but Hannah's feelings merely reflect how an individual might feel and view his or her situation. Over the next few months the blame is nicely shifted towards Melissa (August 6th, 2007), but on the 5th of September 2007 everything comes back to JP being the cause. Hannah also reveals him treating her the way he Emma Rigby All dressed up, no where to godid was the reason for her not being "able to look at herself in the mirror". JP feels guilty and the blame is changed to JP not necessarily being gay, but because he lied about it.

 

Being friends with Sarah means she naturally takes her side when the Craig and JP relationship hits the fan, but when JP goes around to try and make amends (September 21st, 2007) she is more concerned with staying conscious. JP and Sarah fighting causes her to pass out.

 

A few months later, JP and Hannah bump into one another in the Village, She explains she doesn't blame JP because it was her problem not his. She asks if he wants to be friends with her, and JP eagerly agrees (December 5th, 2007) and they go as friends to watch The Twang play (January 17th, 2007) and chat about it the next day after JP gives her their album he brought her. Hannah and JP chat about life and Father Kieron over a cup of coffee at Il Nosh as she tries to work out who he fancies (March 10th, 2008). Hannah watches JP as he gets stressed and tries to make a dignified exit from the SU, after the 10k run celebrations get to much for him (March 31st, 2008), he shrugs her off when she goes after him to try and find out what's wrong. After sleeping with Kieron that night JP rings her late when she is preparing to sleep and asks her if he can come round for a chat, although finding it a bit strange she agrees and the pair talk about how JP is feeling about his new love life; JP tells Hannah he still thinks about Craig a lot and doesn't think he will ever be able to move on, she points out that's how she felt about him, but eventually you get over it (April 1st, 2008). Again during a chat about how JP is feeling, he almost lets slip about his relationship with Kieron whilst comparing what he had with Craig (21st May, 2008)

 

Hannah and Sarah with JP, one last timeWhen Hannah is eventually told about Kieron and JP (on screen that is) she is thrust right into the end. The engagement. JP tells her at the SU when she is debating whether or not to run for entertainment office at uni, he of course encourages her, and she him (September 1st, 2008).

 

Sarah and Hannah are walking around the village when they find JP, she is pro their (Craig/JP) relationship and looks upset when JP explains the problems they are having. Sarah is less frosty and accepts what has happened has happened and they need to move on. Later that day the pair run across Craig, a similar conversation passes with Hannah telling Craig he and JP are perfect for each other and if everyone had been a little more honest from the start things would have been different, it all ends with a group hug (September 18th, 2008).

Jack Osborne

 

Jack And FrankieJack Osborne (Jimmy McKenna) has had very little to do with JP in the grander context, but when they do cross paths they are more than happy to shares jokes and chat about various things (various dates). In the past Jack has shown some prejudices; sacking Kris Fisher because he thought he had HIV. Yet when Craig and JP were revealed he saw past the issue of gender and was the only Dean/Osborne to show Craig unconditional love (September 9th, 2007), he also bids an emotional farewell to Craig liking him to a biological son (September 20th, 2007).

 

 

The McQueen's are held hostage in St Eustace Church by Niall/Matthew when he reveals to all who he really is. Myra is asked 6 questions by Niall for each one she gets wrong she must pick a child to die, answering only two questions correctly she is forced to save the lives of Michaela, because she is the youngest and Tina, because she has a child. Before anything can happen Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom arrive at the church, ruining Niall's plan, he blows everyone up instead (October 16th, 2008).

 

The majority of the McQueen's along with Dom and Niall end up in the basement when the floor gives way. Tina dies in Dom's arms after she makes him promise to tell baby Max about her when he is older.

Jacqueline "Jacqui" Bernadette Malota (née McQueen)

 

Jacqui (Claire Cooper) is arguably Jacqui and JPthe more supportive McQueen sister towards John Paul's “big reveal”, seen as a secondary mother by the younger members of the household. Jacqui married Alec in order to avoid jail, although is currently with Tony Hutchinson.

 

Jacqui and JP have a close and unique brother and sister relationship, she is constantly there for JP (various dates) and he tries to return that affection when he is able (various dates). Jacqui is furiously protective of her younger brother, but often only needs to gently push him into the right direction and he is able to deal with his own issues (9th and 19th of February 2007). JP gives Jacqui away on her wedding day (March 23rd, 2007) despite trying to talk her out of marrying Alec which was essentially for money. Jacqui bullies JP into work at Il Nosh when Tony is short staffed (March 10th, 2008) saying its a family business, and also pointing out he needs the money.

 

Jacqui and the rest of the McQueen's come together when Niall pushes Tina down the stairs and she goes into premature labour giving birth to baby Max (July 2nd, 2008).

 

JP picks Carmel's wedding over Kieron's funeral, after Jacqui hits him. The plan if for him to give her away in place of their (shared) father (September 15th, 2008).

 

Jacqui love her brotherKieron is an only child and its heavily suggested his parents don't approve of their son being gay, JP and the rest of the McQueen's are (behind the scenes) suggested to have not been invited to the funeral, and maybe even told to stay away. Instead the following day Myra arranges her own remembrance service in the McQueen's front garden, but JP is horrified and doesn't think it would have been what Kieron would have wanted at all. Instead Jacqui takes JP to the cemetery while Myra and Michaela say goodbye at the house. JP tells Jacqui he keeps ringing Kieron's phone so he can hear his voice, while she goes to find a vase for the flowers JP rings his phone one last times and says goodbye to him in his own moving way. At the end he deletes Kieron's number from his phone, finally putting him to rest (September 17th, 2008).

 

Jacqui along with the rest of the McQueen's are held hostage in St Eustace Church by Niall/Matthew when he reveals to all who he really is. Myra is asked 6 questions by Niall for each one she gets wrong she must pick a child to die, answering only two questions correctly she is forced to save the lives of Michaela, because she is the youngest and Tina, because she has a child. Before anything can happen Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom arrive at the church, ruining Niall's plan, he blows everyone up instead (October 16th, 2008).

 

The majority of the McQueen's along with Dom and Niall end up in the basement when the floor gives way. Tina dies in Dom's arms after she makes him promise to tell baby Max about her when he is older. Everyone else including Niall get out of the church alive, his ghostly reflection on the back of an ambulance door watching the rest of the McQueen's grieve... (October 17th, 2008).

 

All the McQueen's along with Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom head to the hospital to recover. John Paul tells them he is going back to Dublin, Jacqui makes him promise that if Craig ever hurts him she is to let him know, and he can always, always come back if he wants to (October 20th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jake Dean

 

Jake Dean Jake Dean the evilest Dean(Kevin Sacre) and JP are only linked through Jake's Brother, Craig. Jake is a bit of a homophobic and fosters pretty nasty anti gay attitudes, (various dates), he makes no effort to try and support his brother when his affair with JP is revealed, is brash, dismissive and cruel to Craig and deeply revolted by the thought of the pair together in a sexual way. This upsets Craig greatly and is likely to be one of the strongest reasons for Craig wanting to escape from Chester. Jake does eventually come to the airport to say farewell to Craig but in doing so only adds to the niggling doubt in JP's mind when Craig tells Jake he isn't gay (September 20th, 2007). Jake relishes telling JP in Drive n Buy that Craig is having a great time in Dublin and what they had was only a phase (September 27th, 2007). In order to comfort Nancy JP tells her he isn't scared of Jake, and agree's to go with her to see baby Charlie (March 11th, 2008). Jake ends up in the nut house (really).

 

 

 

 

 

 

James

 

 

Who is James? James is the name that's above "John Paul" in Craig's phone address book. Maybe James is Craig's past squeeze from Dublin, some Irish dude who likes waistcoats and ugly pointed shoes, looks like a leprecon and has a sister called Mary.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jay aka "Plot device on legs"

 

Jay the shaggy haired dudeJay (who is this guy?) is a horrid sleazy guy who works in a shoe shop who JP is pushed into picking up by Summer and then taking back to his love nest for some meaningless stringless (and probs goad awful) sex, lucky someone else is sleeping in in his bed and its not Goldilocks, its his sister and hubby making a porridgeage mess with snuggle time (October 3rd, 2007). A disgusting creep ass crawler is Jay, who only wants JP for his body, he scarpers as soon as Mama McQueen comes to see what all the fuss is about. Jay could actually be a "Goldilocks" if he wasn't such a dog.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jessica Harris

 

Jess HarrisJessica "Jess" Harris (Jennifer Biddall) was JP's housemate and "landlord" when he briefly moved into the student flat (October 4th, 2007), she pimped out Elliot's room while he was away in order to make some quick cash from JP, the boys eventually discovered the truth and he demanded his money back (November 8th, 2007). Jess was also responsible for the Poison Party by "hiring" Danny Valentine on the cheap, to fix the boiler (October 10th, 2007). Jess left Chester for good on the 28th of Decemeber 2007.

 

 

 

 

 

 

John Paul McQueen

 

(Born 18th May 1989)

 

John Paul Man handles a bottle of red wine

 

 

John Paul (Anthony Sebastian) McQueen (James Sutton) is the focus of this entire site, and with that in mind is why this reference is so short and basic. We love John Paul McQueen, he is our hero and our private worship with our secret Hollyoaks Shrines in the back of the cupboards, just weren't cutting the mustard or showing the true extent of our addiction. We decided to bring it all into the wonderful world wide web and further the cult fascination with the lad.

 

He arrives in Chester (September 2006) and is quite pretty to look at, some might even describe him as drool on legs, but his real charm is his well constructed and rounded character. John Paul on his decksHe was also the perfect vessel for Hollyoaks to finally knock down the final taboos of "being gay" on a modern UK soap, he isn't a "Mincy Queen" or a "limp handed wack slacker" or even a "rough around the edges gayer". Nope JP is just JP. He shattered stereotypes and ruined other soaps half hearted, and at times insulting, attempts to represent a fairly large "minority group" in this county. JP was allowed to kiss guys and explore his sexuality openly (16th of April 2007 amongst others) and in full view of the watcher, there was no "scared of what people might think so lets be really snecky and cut away NOW!" scenes it was fair and an accurate representation, all the while not becoming repetitious or boring. Being gay is a normal form of sexuality and JP is one of the first characters in TV who has finally been allowed to demonstrate that attribute. Then one final winning attribute, JP was still living his life in Chester, he hadn't scuttled off and hidden after his storyline of "being gay" had "finished", so we got to keep his loveable, sensitive and sometimes snarky personality and attitude playing out on screen for a good while after. Fantastic Brilliance.

 

 

What? That's all very well and good but you want personal details about the guy!? Well OK. But note this page covers JP in so much detail that if you go to it there is no way you can claim to be just an "average" fan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Justin Burton

 

 

Justin Burton (Chris Fountain) Justin and Katy have a bite to eatwas good friends with Sonny and thus had a natural hate of both JP and Craig, their animosity was further antagonised when JP got physical with Justin and hit him (January 10th, 2007) while defending Craig. Their interaction was limited until, Katy Fox became friends with JP (September 27th, 2007), Justin dates Katy on and off, and he quickly became jealous and frustrated by JP's protection of his new friend (various dates). Eventually Justin saved JP's life from a faulty boiler throwing out toxic carbon monoxide, during a housewarming party for JP moving into halls, rendering everyone at the students party unconscious, (October 11th, 2007) after that JP had little choice but to offer Justin a level of respect he hadn't needed to previously (October 12th, 2007).

Katy Fox

 

Katy Fox (Hannah Tointon) Katy and JP; The start of something greatis one of JP newest collage friends, they both do similar courses at HCC at the moment English Literature.

 

When they first meet it was hate at first sight (September 27th, 2007) she thinks JP is some kind of sex pest when he touches her breasts to try and clean her up after knocking coffee all over her, and later when Ste tries to bother her for money he acts as if they are a couple. Outraged she rants to her brother, who quickly reveals JP is actually into guys, that out of the way the pair get along famously, and even go as a couple to the fresher's ball (September 28th, 2007). JP is furiously protective of Katy and keeps Justin away when she doesn't want to see him. Justin soon saves both JP and her from certain death and things settle down with both JP and Justin giving each other a mutual respect. The pair remain good friends, Katy jokes in a sing song voice about JP and Robin being together forever much to Justin and JP's amusement (January 23rd, 2008). Katy leaves the village forever on the 10th of April 2008.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Father) Kieron Hobbs

 

Father Kieron Hobbs (Jake Hendriks) is Chester's newest Priest who Kieron is hot no?works at St Charles Church. Naturally all the McQueen's Love him (for differing reasons) (January 8th, 2008). He moves into the "guest room" while Myra mothers him, Michaela stalks him (Various dates in January 2008). Kieron goes about his priestly work for a few weeks and then gets a bit more social joining Robin and JP on a date in the SU, Zac lets him know that maybe Robin isn't such a good catch after all, and warns JP off him (January 25th, 2008), JP doesn't want to listen and believes it's his prejudice as a minister which is causing him to disapprove of Robin, however JP is shocked to the core when Father Kieron admits he is gay too (January 28th, 2008).

 

Father Kieron packs his bags the following day because of Myra's constant talk about bladder problems JP pushing him to come out and to stop living a double life assuming that Kieron pretends to be a Priest in the day and sleeping around with blokes at night. He snaps and rants at JP about how he is just a child and doesn't understand anything about him and doesn't have sex with anyone. JP quickly says sorry and asks him to stay (January 29th, 2008). For the next month the pair get on fine, then during a few intense days when the pair spend a large amount of time together with the Charity Fashion show they grow closer and JP and Kieron share a kiss (February 21st, 2008). The next day the boys carry on spending time together, with Kieron daring JP to go to Drive and Buy and get some more beer, wearing only his boxers (February 22nd, 2008). While Kieron, at the start of March, is away from Chester he sends texts and postcards to JP to tell him how he is (6th/7th March 2008). When Hannah jokes with him about JP bigging him up he gets concerned that people will find out about him and JP being more than simple friends. JP takes offence and the pair bicker again (March 10th, 2008).

Mercy has a go

The following morning at breakfast Mercy is trying her luck with the bemused priest, JP warns her off, and the pair make up from the argument the night before. As the day progresses Kieron reveals he has started to question his faith in a big way and is struggling to control his desires. At first JP is worried and thinks he is to blame, respecting what Kieron does for the Village and society at large, he reassures JP its not his fault and later still admits to being strongly sexually attracted to him. JP is confused and when he see's the Priest in action that day JP reminds Kieron of his vows and says he will never want to be the reason to break them (March 11th, 2008).

 

A few weeks later and Kieron is still struggling to come to terms with his feelings, JP is doing all he can to avoid him, and mildly interested watches as Kris and Kieron hit it off (March 26th, 2008). The days roll by and eventually JP snaps that he cant stand watching him and Kris get closer all the while wanting to be close with him, Kieron happily gives in and the pair finally have sex (March 31st, 2008). Kieron, like JP, needs space to think about what's happened, for JP its about sleeping with someone but not feeling the same or as good as what it was like with Craig (the relationship as a whole), for Kieron its about what sleeping with another man means for his promises to god and what happens next. Kieron talks about this with Kris in the Dog (April 1st, 2008), when he talks with JP, he tells him its too complicated to think about and they should just follow what they feel. After a night to think about it JP is still not feeling what Kieron is feeling, and New Hair for the Boysdumps him saying they aren't worth the hassle long term (April 2nd, 2008), Kieron devastated leaves the McQueen's and moves in with Niall (April 3rd, 2008).

 

 

The pair keep their distance from one another for several weeks, but eventually clash when Kieron goes to pick up a book and finds JP dancing to Spice Girls, then later trying to talk Michaela around to go for her second HIV test (May 1st, 2008). He later joins up with John Paul, Myra and Niall for a pub quiz in The Dog and when JP fails to get his question right and has to do a funky birdie dance Kieron steps up to save his embarrassment (May 7th, 2008). Attraction briming and before too long the pair are drawn together again, and agree to try out a relationship and see how it goes (May 8th, 2008). They are kissing one another on the McQueen couch one afternoon when Myra comes home, they hide it by making up lies, but JP is uncomfortable when Kieron says moving to Chester is the best thing he has ever done (May 15th, 2008). Kieron and JP are caught out when they burst out of Niall's bathroom dressed only in towels into the front room where Niall and Steph are kissing (May 16th, 2008). After they say they love one another JP tells Mercy, Kieron is furious at JP's big mouth and dumps him (May 19th, 2008, and May 20th, 2008). Michaela spends several days trying to work out what was going on with him and her brother, she tricks Mercy into thinking she knows all about it and Mercy punches Kieron during an argument (May 22nd, 2008). Later that day JP and Kieron get back together.

 

Kieron Leaves...Kieron is completely outed to everyone when Myra starts to shout in disgust about his relationship with JP (June 26th, 2008) after Niall helps to give the game away, leaving Kieron devastated (various). When Myra throws JP out for choosing Kieron over his family he invites JP to live with him (June 30th, 2008), and rejects the church when another Father comes to call to invite him back to the priesthood (July 1st, 2008).

 

Tina angers Niall with the talk of giving up the baby and he shoves her down some stairs, with everyone blaming it on Fletch (July 1st, 2nd 2008) he is enraged when JP and Myra make up from their falling out over their worry of Tina, and plants ideas into Kieron's head resulting in Kieron leaving JP and Chester behind, in a effort not to damage JP's bond with his family any further.

 

Couple of weeks later and Kieron comes back (July 14th, 2008) Niall does his best to keep the pair apart by playing up the JP slapper side, but he fails and the pair are reunited with Kieron promising he comes first and they will be together no matter what stands in their way (July 15/16th, 2008). Their new life requires money so Kieron applies for a job, and JP sets up a gay night in The Loft, the interviewer things Kieron was a male pole dancer (July 22nd, 2008). A few days later and JP pops the question to Kieron in the flat (July 24th, 2008), to which he says yes. The days following the engagement the lads are positively glowing, Kris, Niall, Dom and Tina all find out and are happy for them (July 25th 2008).

 

A month later and Niall is pushing Kieron to get JP to tell Myra about what's going on. JP wants to spend their honeymoon in Ibiza and Kieron in Tanzania, which leads to friction (August 26th, 2008). Next day and Kieron again nudges JP into telling his mum, who cant quite get there, but tries all the same. Meanwhile Kieron goes with Kris to give blood but they are rejected for being bi-sexual/gay and Kieron goes along with Kris' rage (August 27th, 2008).

 

After all the pushing from Niall and finally feeling things are moving at warp 9, JP asks Kieron to cool things, obviously it ends in a fight. As soon as Kieron goes off to think Craig turns up and takes a tour of the village, which ends in them hugging Kieron dies and JP calls 999 in vain...closely outside of the Dog. Kieron is livid and throws JP's phone at him before storming off in a rage of confusion and hurt (September 2nd, 2008). Kieron doesnt do "green eyed" well, and the relationship just sprials into chaos and eventually comes to an abrut stop when he calls everything off after JP can't commit to a date for the wedding (Septemeber 3rd, 2008).

 

The pair unfortunately never get the chance to see what might happen after they have both had a few days to think about what's happened. Kieron throws himself into finding Myra's son... and when he discovers the horrific truth, Niall ends his life with a lethal mix of drugs in a beer which the pair so often share (September 5th, 2008). JP arrives back at the flat after receiving a text from "Kieron" "I'm Sorry. Love you Forever K x" to talk about things (September 5th, 2008), only to find him on the floor close to death, JP grabs him and as he is dialing 999 Kieron dies.

 

JP picks Carmel's wedding over Kieron's funeral, after Jacqui hits him. The plan if for him to give her away in place of their (shared) father (September 15th, 2008).

 

At the grave saying goodbyeKieron is an only child and its heavily suggested his parents don't approve of their son being gay, JP and the rest of the McQueen's are (behind the scenes) suggested to have not been invited to the funeral, and maybe even told to stay away. Instead the following day Myra arranges her own remembrance service in the McQueen's front garden, but JP is horrified and doesn't think it would have been what Kieron would have wanted at all. Instead Jacqui takes JP to the cemetery while Myra and Michaela say goodbye at the house. JP tells Jacqui he keeps ringing Kieron's phone so he can hear his voice, while she goes to find a vase for the flowers JP rings his phone one last times and says goodbye to him in his own moving way. At the end he deletes Kieron's number from his phone, finally putting him to rest (September 17th, 2008), but never forgetting him, thinking about what he would do and using that to make good of the present and future (various).

 

The truth is finally revealed on the 16th of October by Niall when he comes clean to the McQueen's and revels in telling JP he was the one who killed Kieron.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kris Fisher

 

Kris Fisher Kris Fisher strikes up a pose(Gerard McCarthy) is the only other "gay in the village" (I hate that pun!) and he isn't even gay, as much as he is bisexual, having relationships with both men and women. Kris is very individual and resists all labels. He also presents his own radio show where he is known as "Kris-Ter-Phonic".

 

In terms of his and JP's, platonic, relationship they haven't spent much time together. There is also the sense that JP isn't Kris's type and that notion seems to apply both ways (October 10th, 2007). Nonetheless he is a knowledgeable person when it comes to life, offering wisdom to many of his fellow students and indirectly relationship advice for Craig and JP (various dates). JP doesn't always agree with this advice, and when Kris-Ter-Phonic offers some coming out advice to a young man, JP doesn't agree and thinks he can do better, just as they are about to go live... the power goes off (December 5th, 2007). Partly out of spite, partly out to prove a point, JP and Elliot set up a pirate radio station to abuse and ridicule Kris's sharp and sometimes blunt advice and comments he dishes out to his listeners and friends (December 2007 and January 2008 and Various Dates ).

 

As 2008 progresses the pair grow closer not only sharing a relatable sexuality but also generally as friends, the pair egg each other on when JP sets up a LGBT society in the SU and Kris accuses JP of just doing it to meet fit guys. Later Kris offers support when JP comes clean about having a deeper interest in someone else Kris and JP. And Kieron too(6th/7th March 2008). As March progresses he tries to guess who JP is lusting after, and as such is pulled towards Kieron as the pair are both rejected by JP for differing reasons, JP watches on as the pair become closer (March 26th, 2008). Kris becomes the catalyst for JP's jealously, and it eventually pushes him into Kieron's arms (March 31st, 2008), Kieron comes back to Kris later that night when he admits to Kris he has slept with JP and is in a state about what this means for him and his place in the Church (April 1st, 2008). The following day Kris cant resist jibing at JP, Kris offers himself as a sounding board (April 2nd, 2008), he later goads the boys in jest about all things gay and again offers himself as a sounding board throughout the "affair" (Various dates).

 

The days after the engagement the lads are positively glowing, Kris, Niall, Dom and Tina all find out and are happy for them (July 25th 2008). Kieron goes with Kris to give blood but they are rejected for being bi-sexual/gay and Kieron goes along with Kris' rage (August 27th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

L

 

 

 

 

Liam (from Psychology)

 

Is one of those students that JP goes to collage with, but we as mere watchers never get to see or meet him. Kris asks JP if he fancies him to which he shudders (March 7th, 2008). Maybe its a good thing we never get to meet him then.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Louise Summers

 

Louise Summers (Roxanne McKee) is potentially Katy's sister in law, owns Evissa where Carmel and Niall work, and other than Louise asking JP to DJ at The Dog (December 26th, 2007), which she now part owns with boyfriend Warren, she has little interactions with JP, other than setting up some DJ dates with him (October 2006) and then being fooled (Sort of) into letting JP host a gay night at The Loft and taking half the door takings after Warren originally says no (July 22nd, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

M

 

 

 

 

Marjorie McQueen

 

Marjorie McQueen (Diane Langton) is JP's Grandmother. The pair have little interaction, although JP does show huge concern for her when she is attacked by Niall, and is laid up on the McQueen sofa, in return she gives him a pound coin (March 5th, 2008 ).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Max (McQueen)

 

Max is JP's first nephew after he becomes an uncle (July 2nd, 2008) when Tina gives birth prematurely after Niall pushes her down some stairs. Max is named in memory of Max Cunningham.

Mercedes "Mercy" Owen (née McQueen)

 

Mercy (Jennifer Metcalfe) is another headstrong sister, brash Mercy gets strippy for Sonnyand sometimes damn right rude, Mercy causes trouble wherever she goes. Often grounded by Russ Owen and her other sisters, although still displays moments of poor judgment. Described as the most selfish McQueen sister (November 6th, 2007) it's obvious she thinks a lot of herself before others. She was cruel to JP when he came out and refused to accept he could be gay she also took it personally when her then boyfriend Russ enjoyed himself at a gay bar with the rest of her family (February 27th, 2007).

 

Despite being slow to accept JP, she eventually came around to the idea and tried to make amends by buying JP tickets for a Dolly Parton concert (February 28th, 2007) it didn't go down well. Stereotypes rarely do. She tried to get to know Spike when he came around one afternoon (April 16th, 2007) but JP saw it as her being nosy and shunted her away. The pair don't have that much time together, but JP did give her away on her wedding day to Russ (July 11th, 2007). Mercy likes looking at the gay mags under JP's bed, for the male models, much to JP's annoyance (December 26th, 2007). When she starts to hit on Kieron one morning at breakfast he is rescued by JP who warns her off saying he is a man of god and would never be interested in her (March 11th 2008). Mercy thinks that Niall is JP's mystery man after she watches them talking in a covert way, but JP lets slip its actually Kieron he is seeing (May 19th, 2008). A few days later Mercedes accuses Kieron of being a sleaze and two timing JP with Kris, a argument follows which results in her punching Kieron (22nd May, 2008).

 

Mercy and the rest of the McQueen's come together when Niall pushes Tina down the stairs and she goes into premature labour giving birth to baby Max (July 2nd, 2008). The rest of the family stay with Tina while Mercedes goes to update JP, where she is disgusted to learn Kieron has run out on her brother as soon as it "gets tough" (July 3rd, 2008). She isn't happy when she finds out Kieron and JP are back on, but doesn't rat them out to Myra (July 16th, 2008)

Mercy with her sisters

Again Mercy sides with JP when she finds out Kieron has died and Myra is disgusted to learn he has been sleeping with Craig, she kicks him out in the face of Mercy's objections (September 8th, 2008).

 

Mercy along with the rest of the McQueen's are held hostage in St Eustace Church by Niall/Matthew when he reveals to all who he really is. Myra is asked 6 questions by Niall for each one she gets wrong she must pick a child to die, answering only two questions correctly she is forced to save the lives of Michaela, because she is the youngest and Tina, because she has a child. Before anything can happen Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom arrive at the church, ruining Niall's plan, he blows everyone up instead (October 16th, 2008).

 

The majority of the McQueen's along with Dom and Niall end up in the basement when the floor gives way. Tina dies in Dom's arms after she makes him promise to tell baby Max about her when he is older. Everyone else including Niall get out of the church alive, his ghostly reflection on the back of an ambulance door watching the rest of the McQueen's grieve... (October 17th, 2008).

 

All the McQueen's along with Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom head to the hospital to recover. John Paul tells them he is going back to Dublin, Mercedes is envious of JP and tells him he is lucky to have found someone and he shouldn't let that go (October 20th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Michaela McQueen

 

Michaela Mcqueen (Hollie-Jay Bowes) is the last one of Myra's daughters, and the sister of John Paul and Carmel. Half-sister to Jacqui, Michaela Mcqueen and Amy BarnesMercedes and Tina. Michaela is the youngest McQueen and often feels pushed aside by her older siblings who tend to dominate her mothers time and attention. Although portrayed as essentially selfish and cruel to others, in recent months she has become more understanding.

 

Michaela, along with Mercedes and Myra, originally struggled to accept JP wasn’t interested in girls (February 8th, 2007). JP plays the typical big brother when it comes to Michaela looking out for her when she needs it, (2nd of November 2006 and 4th of February 2008). Over the year she hasn't really been shown to have too much of a reaction to JP, she relishes in being able to say "My brother is gayer than yours" (September 13th, 2007), and is non reactive to JP and Craig telling the rest of the McQueen's they are a couple. She also gives JP a huge hug and tells him she will really miss him when he leaves Hollyoaks with Craig (September 20th, 2007), they still fight like brother and sister though (November 9th, 2007). Michaela is again confronted by JP regarding her "drug problem" when things with her friends spiral into disaster (March 28th, 2008), he is so concerned he rings a drugs helpline to ask for advice, he later tells her he will come with her to the HIV test (May 1st, 2008).

 

@ The hospital fretting over TinaWhen JP goes around to the flat to try and make amends with Kieron about him spilling everything to Mercy, Michaela secretly breaks into the flat and actually tape records the breakup conversation between the boys (May 20th, 2008). That's not enough to work out what's happening so for days she digs for dirt for a newspaper article, eventually JP finds out and the pair have their worse argument, JP stunningly reeling off a list of what she has done wrong and the betrayal he is facing from her actions (May 22nd, 2008).

 

Michaela and the rest of the McQueen's come together when Niall pushes Tina down the stairs and she goes into premature labour giving birth to baby Max (July 2nd, 2008).

 

When Kieron ends the relationship because of JP's confusion and not really knowing what he wants, he goes back home and is sitting on the sofa when Michaela comes home. Although she jibes him initially as soon as she see's the tears she jumps to his side and comforts him (September 3rd, 2008).

 

Kieron is an only child and its heavily suggested his parents don't approve of their son being gay, JP and the rest of the McQueen's are (behind the scenes) suggested to have not been invited to the funeral, and maybe even told to stay away. Instead the following day Myra arranges her own remembrance service in the McQueen's front garden, but JP is horrified and doesn't think it would have been what Kieron would have wanted at all. Instead Jacqui takes JP to the cemetery while Myra and Michaela say goodbye at the house. JP tells Jacqui he keeps ringing Kieron's phone so he can hear his voice, while she goes to find a vase for the flowers JP rings his phone one last times and says goodbye to him in his own moving way. At the end he deletes Kieron's number from his phone, finally putting him to rest (September 17th, 2008).

 

Michaela along with the rest of the McQueen's are held hostage in St Eustace Church by Niall/Matthew when he reveals to all who he really is. Myra is asked 6 questions by Niall for each one she gets wrong she must pick a child to die, answering only two questions correctly she is forced to save Micheala Has a Horrid Timethe lives of Michaela, because she is the youngest and Tina, because she has a child. Before anything can happen Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom arrive at the church, ruining Niall's plan, he blows everyone up instead (October 16th, 2008).

 

The majority of the McQueen's along with Dom and Niall end up in the basement when the floor gives way. Tina dies in Dom's arms after she makes him promise to tell baby Max about her when he is older. Everyone else including Niall get out of the church alive, his ghostly reflection on the back of an ambulance door watching the rest of the McQueen's grieve... (October 17th, 2008).

 

All the McQueen's along with Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom head to the hospital to recover. John Paul tells them he is going back to Dublin, Micheala jokes he can always come back but will have the counch as his room is taken now. JP says he will miss her the most (October 20th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Myra McQueen

 

Myra McQueen (born 1966) (Nicole Barber-Lane) is the mother to the McQueen clan, a single Catholic parent who struggles to do the right thing for her children.

 

A bit rough around the edges in terms of morality, however ethically speaking she is normally doing it for the greater good. In terms of JP she has had constant involvement in his recent changes, she thinks he is gay because of the way she raised him with a close family of only girls (May 15th, 2007). Myra, Alek, Carmel and JP face offJP finds Myra one of the hardest people he can confide in about being gay, and the coming out scenes between the two are deeply touching and moving, and reeks of distinct reality (February 8th, 2007). She struggles to accept the truth, but quickly embraces JP's new public sexuality and even goes with him to a gay bar to try and hook him up with a fella (February 27th, 2007). Over the coming months she quickly finds herself ever closer to her son as she shares his life in a more truthful and open way, she meets his boyfriend; Spike (May 15th, 2007), and later stands up for him when Craig and JP are revealed (various dates), she is even able to joke about it the following year with a Priest (January 28th, 2008).

 

Unfortunately Myra became too dependent on JP needing his mum, and eventually only succeeds in pushing him out into the world (October 4th, 2007). She is more than happy when he returns home and can go back to mothering him, but this time with a little more restraint. When she thinks Elliot is JP's new boyfriend she confides in Elliot that she never liked Craig and he is the kind of "lad" she wants JP to be with (December 7th, 2007). Myra is horrified when she learns that JP's sexual antics take place in the SU toilets and rants at her son, JP stirs her up even more by blaming and disrespecting the live in Priest (January 28th, 2008).

 

Myra, JP, Niall and Kieron go to The Dog for a game of Pub Quiz Darren Stylee (May 7th, 2008) and fund is had. Myra supposedly cuts JP's hair still. With a fruit bowl (May 8th, 2008). She is happy to show Kieron pictures of JP as a baby when she believes its for a parish newsletter about "faith", and later JP hugs and tells her he loves her (May 15th, 2008). When Myra calls him one morning after spending the night with Kieron he gets defensive about her always mothering him again, he rudely hangs up on her but later makes amends (May 23rd, 2008), before the make up she talks to Kieron saying she has failed as a mother and tells him about giving Niall away.

 

 

One day in May Elliot goes around to ask JP for some help in fixing his telescope, because Myra is getting close to finding out JP and Kieron are an item, he asks Elliot to pretend to be his boyfriend, to which he replies "I'm not a gay", with some quick bargaining its not long before the pair are "lovers", which finishes off with Elliot and JP having a lovers tiff and ending their short "affair" (May 26th, 2008) all for the reason of hiding the real truth from Myra.

@ the hospital worrying about Tina and the fall

A few weeks later Michaela tips Myra off JP has a boyfriend, she snoops around his room and finds a empty box of condoms, a row follows (June 23rd, 2008). When Niall sets up a chain of events which leads to Myra finding out the truth and revealing it to everyone else in the process (June 26th, 2008) she shuns both Kieron and JP as her faith and beliefs lay in tatters, she forces JP to chose Kieron and pushes him from the McQueen household (June 30th, 2008).

 

Myra and the rest of the McQueen's come together when Niall pushes Tina down the stairs and she goes into premature labour giving birth to baby Max (July 2nd, 2008), she also begins to build bridges with her son after their most recent falling out, when JP goes around to tell Myra he has finished his first year at uni and has done really well she invites him for tea (July 14th, 2008). He stays the night and invites him to move back in. She confides in Mercy that JP needs to slow down in life and things would work out better for him, later that afternoon she is disgusted to learn Kieron is back sleeping with her son (July 16th, 2008).

 

Several weeks later and Kieron and JP get engaged but deliberately hide it from Myra, eventually JP starts to get Funeral McQueen Styleepressured into telling her what's going on (August 27th, 2008) but doesn't quite get there. Few days later he tells her, and after their normal spat she is supportive, scuppering Niall's plans for family breakup (August 29th, 2008).

 

When they end things all on their own, Myra is annoyed after growing to like Kieron all over again and is frosty with her son (September 4th, 2008) although she is pleased he is back home.

 

After Kieron's murder Niall and JP go around to tell her, she is sleeping and stunned when she hears the truth, and although comforting to her son is also equally effected by Kieron's death. When she finds out JP slept with Craig while he was dying she is disgusted and kicks him out (September 8th, 2008).

 

Kieron is an only child and its heavily suggested his parents don't approve of their son being gay, JP and the rest of the McQueen's One last hugare (behind the scenes) suggested to have not been invited to the funeral, and maybe even told to stay away. Instead the following day Myra arranges her own remembrance service in the McQueen's front garden, but JP is horrified and doesn't think it would have been what Kieron would have wanted at all. Instead Jacqui takes JP to the cemetery while Myra and Michaela say goodbye at the house. JP tells Jacqui he keeps ringing Kieron's phone so he can hear his voice, while she goes to find a vase for the flowers JP rings his phone one last times and says goodbye to him in his own moving way. At the end he deletes Kieron's number from his phone, finally putting him to rest (September 17th, 2008).

 

Later in day she is frustrated when Craig comes looking for JP and the pair go off for a drink. Once again a day later and Myra has done a U-Turn and tells JP he can't live in guilt for the rest of his life, he wont ever forget Kieron and maybe he still does love Craig after all this time. She gives her turn around support one final time. Realising that you have to let go of the past, and make up for it in the future (September 18th, 2008).

 

The Other SonShe has one final proper moment with her son after JP misses Craig at The Dog. She tells him everything happens for a reason, and he shouldn't waste his life worrying about things he hasn't done. Later that day she brings him up a cup of tea, but JP has gone, taking some of his stuff with him. She does not seem too shocked (September 19th, 2008).

 

Myra along with the rest of the McQueen's are held hostage in St Eustace Church by Niall/Matthew when he reveals to all who he really is. Myra is asked 6 questions by Niall for each one she gets wrong she must pick a child to die, answering only two questions correctly she is forced to save the lives of Michaela, because she is the youngest and Tina, because she has a child. Before anything can happen Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom arrive at the church, ruining Niall's plan, he blows everyone up instead (October 16th, 2008).

 

The majority of the McQueen's along with Dom and Niall end up in the basement when the floor gives way. Tina dies in Dom's arms after she makes him promise to tell baby Max about her when he is older. Everyone else including Niall get out of the church alive, his ghostly reflection on the back of an ambulance door watching the rest of the McQueen's grieve... (October 17th, 2008).

 

All the McQueen's along with Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom head to the hospital to recover. John Paul tells them he is going back to Dublin after Myra tells him it's OK not to stick around. They say their goodbye last and JP hurries from their embrace to avoid breaking down totally (October 20th, 2008).

Nancy Hayton

 

Nancy Hayton (Jessica Fox), was orginally the kind of girl who you love because she is the kind of female role model that you have to stop and admire, strong willed with principles and views that would rival the previous basis of Hollyoaks; Nancy looking cute, but we all no what she is likesexism etc. At the start JP and Nancy don't really "gel" she is so full of life and trying to change what is wrong with the world that JP just gives her a wide berth (November 2006). Nancy has always set her sights higher than school boys and as such was never a central figure in the lives of JP et al, although she was always happy to help out her friends when needed (January 8th, 2007), and as such she and JP always tended to get along (various dates), nonetheless Nancy always valued her friendship with the girls more than any other and would defend and protect them blindly and with spite, this was ultimately the reason that JP and Nancy became "enemies", (various) their relationship of late is pretty much all consuming hate, with perhaps only Sarah hating him more. Nancy has gradually been worn down to a shadow of her former self by her relationship with Jake.

 

One afternoon in Washed Up JP goes in to wash some of the McQueen stuff and finds Nancy crying. First he ignores her, but eventually goes and comforts her, even though she was a total bitch he is happy to give up his afternoon and go with her to the hospital to challenge Jake and force him to let her see baby Charlie (March 11th, 2008), Nancy is grateful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Niall Rafferty

 

Niall smiles for the camera... or notNiall Rafferty born 23rd December 1980 (also known by foster carers as Matthew) (Barry Sloane) is JP's older half brother. He integrates himself into the village and McQueen household (December 2007). Niall is a friendly kinda chap and hits it off with JP straight away and even gets him to mix a CD of JP's mixed up tunes (December 21st, 2007). He comes to the McQueens for Christmas dinner and get's upset by Myra's speech about family and leaves (December 25th, 2007). Niall has a party at the McQueen's for his birthday and takes the opportunity to give Michaela a overdose and make it look to the rest of the McQueen's like she has a serious drug problem and manipulates the situation to continually make it worse (Various; early February 2008). Niall continues to involve himself with all the huge McQueen family events always being there even if its just making tea in the background but always offering a shoulder for Myra to cry on, despite being the cause of most of the problems (various).

 

Niall invites Kieron to stay at his when things at the McQueen's turn sour (April 2nd, 2008). Kieron and JP are caught out when they burst out of Niall's bathroom dressed only in towels into the front room where Niall and Steph are kissing (May 16th, 2008), at the same time the latter pair are also caught out as Steph is supposed to be with Max. Niall agrees to keep the pairs secret, he doesn't really have much choice as he was caught with Steph after all (May 19th, 2008), the relationship between the trio is still fragile and when JP walks in on Kieron naked in the shower they bring it to the surface and he agree's not to tell anyone. Later he pushes JP to tell Myra but is stopped by Kieron (May 23rd, 2008) Weeks pass, and Niall goes along with the couple's plans, until he finds out that Myra has been taking council with Kieron about giving him up as a baby, he plots revenge on Kieron and Myra, with everything coming to a head when Myra goes to the flat to hunt for the Steph and Max's wedding vows which Niall has hidden, but finding JP instead (June 26th, 2008). Niall mixes up lies to Keep Kieron and JP apartNiall enjoys the chaos when Myra finds out, but his enjoyment takes on a sharp twist when he has to combine his feelings for killing Max and ruining his little brothers family relationships (June 30th, 2008).

 

Tina angers him with the talk of giving up the baby and he shoves her down some stairs, with everyone blaming it on Fletch (July 1st, 2nd 2008) he is enraged when JP and Myra make up from their falling out over their worry of Tina, and plants ideas into Kieron's head resulting in Kieron leaving Chester. He enjoys watching JP pine over the missing Kieron whilst making sure everyone suspects Fletch for the attack (July 3rd, 2008). He likes having his younger brother around, and invites him to stay on at the flat as a proper flatmate (July 14th, 2008) JP sort of agree's but is keen to try and work things out again with Myra. Kieron meanwhile drops by and Niall tries his best to stop the love birds rekindling any sort of romance by keeping them apart. He fails miserably when the pair come across one another again, he tries to interfere but Kieron shouts at him to give them some space (July 15th, 2008). From then on Niall makes digs at Kieron to his face and causes doubt in JP's mind (July/August 08). The days following the engagement the lads are positively glowing, Kris, Niall, Dom and Tina all find out and are happy for them (July 25th 2008).

 

A month later and Niall is pushing Kieron to get JP to tell Myra about what's going on. JP wants to spend their honeymoon in Ibiza and Kieron in Tanzania, which leads to friction (August 26th, 2008). A Few days later JP tells Myra and after their normal spat she is supportive, scuppering Niall's plans for family breakup (August 29th, 2008).

 

When Craig returns from Dublin and it ends up causing friction all on its own, all Niall has to do it wait for opportunities to wedge the growing gap between Kieron and JP furthe apartr, on September 3rd it pays off as Kieron ends the engagement and relationship. He keeps the pair apart during the fall out, and essentially is to blame for the pair never Niall and his evil beersproperly talking again, leaving the baggage of guilt to follow JP around for the rest of his life.

 

When Kieron solves the mystery about Myra's long lost son he drugs a beer and waits for Kieron to slowly die. As he gets to the end, Niall texts JP; "I'm Sorry. Love you Forever K x". He escapes the flat and waits for JP to call him with the news of his death (September 5th, 2008). During the next few days he plays the grieving friend (September 8th, 2008).

 

JP picks Carmel's wedding over Kieron's funeral, after Jacqui hits him and learning about the funeral from Niall. (September 15th, 2008).

Niall looks on as he spots Craig touching JP in comfort (September 16th, 2008), and later tells JP it was a good service. He is livid when he finds a voice message from Craig on JP's phone... later he works himself into a fury when JP confides he is thinking of going with Craig to Dublin. Niall spikes his beer with tablets and gives the lethal drink to JP... (September 18th, 2008), Niall and JP's show downfortunately for JP supporters he accidentally knocks Niall's drink over and swaps his own with Niall's thus giving him the poisoned beer instead!! Unfortunately Niall doesn't get the full dose so does not die (September 19th, 2008).

 

The McQueen's are held hostage in St Eustace Church by Niall/Matthew when he reveals to all who he really is. Myra is asked 6 questions by Niall for each one she gets wrong she must pick a child to die, answering only two questions correctly she is forced to save the lives of Michaela, because she is the youngest and Tina, because she has a child. Before anything can happen Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom arrive at the church, ruining Niall's plan, he blows everyone up instead (October 16th, 2008).

 

The majority of the McQueen's along with Dom and Niall end up in the basement when the floor gives way. Tina dies in Dom's arms after she makes him promise to tell baby Max about her when he is older. Everyone else including Niall get out of the church alive, his ghostly reflection on the back of an ambulance door watching the rest of the McQueen's grieve... (October 17th, 2008).

 

During their trip away in Dublin in November 2008 (Hollyoaks Later/Late Night Hollyoaks) Craig reveals to Steph that JP isn't over what happened with Niall, he also confides in her they are fighting about it.

Ricky Bowen

 

Ricky Bowen (unknown) is John Paul's, Carmel's and Michaela's biological father. Since they moved to Chester he has had very little to do with the McQueen family, other than befriending Michaela who was flattered to have so much attention from her dad, only for him to turn around and steal all their christmas presents and making a run for it (December 22nd, 2007). Ricky is rarely mentioned. He does not give Carmel away at her wedding to Calvin, that honor is reserved for JP (September 15th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Robin

 

Robin (yum?)Robin (Daniel Bayle) is the next Jay or worse still, Spike (noooo how dare he steal Spike's place in Chester) he even has the check to mimic JP's and Spike's first dialogue regarding him working at The Loft and wrangling himself an invite. Nonetheless JP is smitten and enthralled over The Dogs latest bartender, who is friends with Zak as the pair play rugby together. Again like Spike, Robin reveals early on he is a man's man and tops it all off with a wining smile which draws JP in (January 22nd, 2008).

 

 

Rob as he is forever called after the first meeting agrees to go on a drinks date with JP after he finishes his shift, sensing JP is not at ease with him and Robin and JP snuggle up in the Johndisplaying classic first date nerves he leans over the bar in The Dog and kisses him in front of everyone explaining when that's out of the way its easy (January 23rd, 2008). On their date out at the SU, Rob flirts and looks at other men, he still want's JP though, and pushes him against a wall in the toilets and kisses him. Hard (January 25th, 2008). Robin speaks, possibly for all gay/bi men and women who feel they are shunned or looked down on because of who they fall in love with, and lays it on thick for Father Kieron, although speaking his mind... ultimately he ends up cruelly breaking JP's heart by dumping him in front of his next conquest making it clear he was only ever interested in John Paul's penis (January 28th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Russ Owen

 

Russ and Dom, JP's brother in lawsRuss Owen (Stuart Manning) is one of JP's brother in law's when Russ started dating Mercy he wasn't that keen on him, although the pair bonded early on over their enjoyment of skiing (unable to cite exact date, not an uploaded episode) and hate of the dreaded Crab infestation. As time progressed Russ became a brother in law even before he officially married Mercy, he was extremely supportive of JP when he came out and although slightly hesitant offered to go with JP to a gay bar and embraced the gay scene with total gusto much to Mercy's disgust (February 27th, 2007). Even recently, now that Russ is no longer with Mercy he is still happy to chat to JP about things (October 3rd, 2007), he also still classes John Paul as his brother in law (March 31st, 2008) when the pair celebrate after the 10k run to raise money for charity.

Sarah Barnes

 

Sarah Barnes (Loui batley), was an important person in JP's life for different reasons, mostly for being one of JP best friends (pre 6th of September 2007) but at the same time having it away with her then boyfriend; Craig Dean (But that's well recent, the pair go wayyyy back). JP, Hannah, Craig and Sarah make out During the final year of 6th form Sarah happily made up her section on the Fantastic Foursome, completing the group dynamics and also allowing easy linkage in terms of storytelling. Her and Hannah were BFF JP and Craig were in a similar situation, wouldn't it be perfect if they each went out with the other half of the BFF team? You think so too right? Well that's what happened! First it was Sarah and Craig, then JP and Hannah, they could do bowling (November 23rd, 2006) and go on double dates (November 27th, 2006) and stuff like that. There were a few problems along the way mind, Craig and Hannah thinking Sarah was a big slut and after JP's body, and with JP not exactly saying otherwise, it spelt D.I.S.A.S.T.E.R. and a big fat punch from Craig (December 27th, 2006).

 

The new year arrived and Sarah spentLoui pic from Channel 4 more and more time looking in the mirror and finding out she was indeed the fairest of them all, one day the mirror asked her why she wasn't yet a model? Why indeed, and before you she knows it she is going to Hollyoaks very own Mode magazine, AKA Ripple (June 4th, 2007). Which sends Sarah down the route of wearing sexy clothes and having the London Chic of 2007, adding a touch of glammer and lather of superficiality to the village of Chester. Poor Sarah, as she makes progress into the cut throat world of fashion her Boyfriend makes progress with his best friend JP (16th of May 2007 - 6th of September 2007). Unfortunately Craig is a bit like JP with Hannah and can't face facts so decides Craig makes it up to Sarah with some chocs and DVD'sto ask Sarah to be his future wife (August 16th, 2007), she gladly accepts and everything is wonderful for a few months. She turns to JP often for comfort and reassurance about Craig's feelings for her, because everything about Sarah's life and ambitions are based on dishonesty, the irony isn't lost on the watcher (wink wink).

 

A month after being engaged a party is thrown where Sarah makes the discovery that JP and Craig have been at it like rabbits for the last few months (September 6th, 2007). A bit like Hannah, Sarah is unable to accept that Craig no longer loves her and begs for him to come back to her (she hates JP's guts though) (Various dates between 12th - 19th of September 2007), Craig refuses, saying he loves JP more now. The pair part emotionally touching ways forever on the 19th of September 2007. Sarah quickly covers up the pain and hurt of Craig's betrayal and struggles on with her new life at HCC with Hannah, Nancy and her new student friends. Sarah hates JP and in Sarah, Hannah and Craig. One final goodbyeThe Dog (January 11th, 2008) she tells him how much, blaming him for turning Craig gay and ruining her life.

 

Sarah and Hannah are walking around the village when they find JP. Sarah is less frosty than normal and accepts what has happened has happened and they need to move on. Later that day the pair run across Craig, a similar conversation passes with Hannah telling Craig he and JP are perfect for each other and if everyone had been a little more honest from the start things would have been different. Sarah jokes with Craig their story will be something for the grand kids, and then tells Craig she will always love him because they were best friends as well as lovers. It all ends with a group hug (September 18th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simon (from the second year)

 

Is another student that JP goes to collage with, but we as mere watchers never get to see or meet him. Kris asks JP if he fancies him to which he retorts that he is ugly (March 7th, 2008). But we all know that Kris has had him *wink wink*.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spike

 

 

Tom Vaughan, in the rain, and being 473439x hotnessSpike (Tom Vaughan) was first seen in The Dog on the 25th of March 2007 and then left our screens for over a year on 16th August 2007 in just under 6 months he had completely changed JP's life forever. Confident, not afraid to speak his mind and very sure of himself he instantly caught JP's eye, both being DJ's helped hugely (25th of March 2007, plus various other musical dates), JP admired him greatly and he liked Spike for his extroverted nature and the whole gay thing being a non issue for him (various dates).

 

It's probably fair to say Spike was too mature and confident for JP to ever be a long term partner, despite being the first man JP was to have sex with (May 9th, 2007), Spike's general attitude to their relationship was basic and casual at best, although he did warm up to JP and there were certainly sparks of love brewing on his side (May 14th, 2007) as well as gentle moments such as JP being nervous about their first time together (16th of April and 9th of May 2007), he also wanted, almost to a fault, to meet the rest of JP's family and be a part of his life in a more meaningful way (May 15th, 2007). When he meets them his natural charm puts Myra at ease pleasing everyone.

 

Spike and JP chit chatThere were serious indications that Spike had been terribly hurt in the past (various dates in which Spike is aloof with JP when things get deep) and this was the cause of his now at times distant and almost naive experiences at dealing with a long term relationship. Regardless towards the end of their relationship JP and Spike grew apart, solely because of JP's greater need to be exclusive and with the person he actually loved; Craig (June 27th, 2007). Later Spike is still happy (or arguably desperately wanting) to have JP in his life in a sexual way still, but JP's feelings for Craig get in the way (July 24th, 2007). He often offers JP advice as an older, more experienced gay man (various dates) and even when he parts way with JP forever, is still friendly and concerned about JP's actions and future (August 16th, 2007).

 

(Spike is actually one of our favorite characters in the John Paul centric universe, and for what ever our tiny voices are worth, we'd love Tom Vaughan to come back to Hollyoaks and reprise his role of Spike!

 

Edit November 2008; Well Spike came back for 3 days! He is now writing for a newspaper section called "Out and About" which is aimed at the gay community writing about gay friendly clubs, pubs etc, he temporally turns the The Jolly Roger (The Dog) into a gay club by writing raving articles about it. He then pushes it up by mistaking Neville's personality and choice of words as those of a gay man just coming out. Hilarity for Spike and everyone else. Neville decides to change the pub back to "The Dog" and Spike vanishes from sight once more.

Sonny Valentine

 

Sonny Valentine (Devon Anderson) is vile, towards JP and Craig, he has a strong dislike of Craig because of his brother, Jake, killing his mother, and later of JP when he comes to Craig's rescue whenever he and Justin decide to bully Craig (28th of November 2006 and 10th of January 2007). He goads Craig to intermediate JP during a football game, (9th February 2007) and makes constant jokes and criticism about JP's sexuality (9th of February and 12th of April 2007). (Sonny leaves Chester when the actor is supposedly given the boot for poor time keeping).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Steve McQueen

 

Although once a real person in real life, but not really real in Hollyoaks anyway er Craig jokes that because everyone in Dublin thinks he is straight JP will be his Cousin; Steve, or Steve McQueen (an obvious cult reference to the late actor with the same name) (September 19th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Steven Hay


Ste Hay Ste, the evil looking chav who is kinda hot(Kieron Richardson) is the evil looking bad boy, who is actually a chav but is sorta hot. (A lot of people were confused about "Kieron" being gay... and assumed it was suggesting Ste would get with JP, in truth "Kieron" was the priest, additionally some fans believe the actor who plays Ste i.e. Kieron is actually gay. Confused much? We were! In the JP universe Ste is straight and with Amy Barnes) Amy told everyone Ste was the father of her baby and they live together in a council house, JP has met Ste on several occasions:

JP rescues Fletch from Ste when he starts to pound his face in (November 2nd, 2006)

JP rescues Katy by pretending he is her boyfriend when Ste pesters her for cash (September 27th, 2007)

JP rescues the McQueen household contents and his watch when Ste "breaks" in and helps himself (January 17th, 2008). JP (along with Kris) rescues Carmel's handbag when Ste mugs her in the street, he escapes jail because he tells everyone Leah has cancer (March 5th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Steph Dean

 

Steph Dean (Carley Stenson) like her brother Jake has very little to do with JP, but unlike her older brother she is Steph refuses to smile for the cameraquite supportive of Craig (various dates) and is totally un reactive to the news Craig is now dating a guy all she says is "Why is it my straight brother can get a boyfriend and I cant?" (September 13th, 2007). Kieron and JP are caught out when they burst out of the bathroom at Niall's flat dressed only in towels into the front room where Niall and Steph are kissing (May 16th, 2008), at the same time the latter pair are also caught out as Steph is supposed to be with Max. The next day JP goes to the flat and checks that she wont spill the beans to anyone, when he says that he loves Kieron, Steph smiles and agrees to keep quiet (May 19th, 2008). She conforts Kieron when he is outed and says even though she knew she still wanted him to marry her and doesn't care about him being gay (June 27th, 2008).

 

She tells Craig that Kieron has died and encourages him to stay away from JP (September 8th, 2008). Steph is happy Craig is back and is the only one to refer him as "bi" during his time back in Chester (September 18th, 2008).

 

During their trip away in Dublin in November 2008 (Hollyoaks Later/Late Night Hollyoaks) Craig reveals to Steph that JP isnt over what happened with Niall, he also confides in her they are fighting about it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summer Shaw

 

Summer Shaw Summer (summer Strallen)(Summer Strallen) is a HCC student, and also a new friend of JP's. They first meet in the village when Summer drops her knickers while talking to her mum on the phone (October 2nd, 2007) JP and Katy later return them and they get chatting, or at least Summer talks and the others listen. She is a very confident and assertive women with an air of "poshness", which JP adores and is instantly attracted to, they meet up for drinks (October 3rd, 2007) and she pushes him to pull Jay in the SU bar. She is later one of the victims at the poison party which is thrown in Honor of JP moving in and Kris returning home (October 10th, 2007). Summer quite fancies Kris and supports him when Elliot and JP set up their pirate radio station (December 7th, 2007). Summer leaves Hollyoaks with OB when she decides there is more to life than singing pop songs with Steph in The Dog (April 2008).

Theresa "McQueen"

 

 

Is John Paul's 15 year old cousin, not really counting, hanging out in his old room at the McQueen house, they have had no direct interaction (mostly because Theresa came into Hollyoaks after John Paul had left) November 2008.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tina Reilly (née McQueen)

 

Tina (Leah Hacket) stood out from the rest of the McQueen family, she was studious and shy where her mother and sisters are outspoken and brash. Tina and JP at Xmas 2007Like Jacqui and Mercedes she is only genetically linked to everyone else through Myra, everyone else is either a half sister or brother. It’s thought her father is a bingo caller called Marvin. Tina was married to Dominic Reilly, Tony’s brother. They married in a double wedding between her and Dom and Mercy and Russ, JP gave both his sisters away (July 11th, 2007).

 

Tina never had a problem with JP being gay, and was always kind enough to tell JP if he ever wanted to talk she would always be happy to listen to him (December 20th, 2006). Unlike Jacqui she didn't know JP was gay, but her reaction was only one of support and generally not much else was said (February 8th, 2007). Tina was partly the reason JP decided to leave home, after coming home with a "in the morning this is going to be such a big mistake" guy, they head to his room but find Tina and hubby Dom having "snuggle time" in his bed (October 3rd, 2007). When "Tee" is standing in the street crying about finding out she is not carry Tony's baby as everyone thought, and is instead Russ's he tries to comfort her, but she politely shuns him and decides she needs to tell Jacquie and Tony first (March 26th, 2008).

 

The days following the engagement between Kieron and JP, Kris, Niall, Dom and Tina all find out and are happy for them (July 25th 2008). Tina and JP go for a walk in the park with baby Max, Brother and sister love! (August 29th, 2008), Tina tries to talk to JP about him and Kieron but he shuts her out (Septemeber 4th, 2008).

Tina with her Brother and Sister. Bad times

 

Tina along with the rest of the McQueen's are held hostage in St Eustace Church by Niall/Matthew when he reveals to all who he really is. Myra is asked 6 questions by Niall for each one she gets wrong she must pick a child to die, answering only two questions correctly she is forced to save the lives of Michaela, because she is the youngest and Tina, because she has a child. Before anything can happen Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom arrive at the church, ruining Niall's plan, he blows everyone up instead (October 16th, 2008).

 

The majority of the McQueen's along with Dom and Niall end up in the basement when the floor gives way. Tina dies in Dom's arms after she makes him promise to tell baby Max about her when he is older. Everyone else including Niall get out of the church alive, his ghostly reflection on the back of an ambulance door watching the rest of the McQueen's grieve... (October 17th, 2008).

 

All the McQueen's along with Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom head to the hospital to recover. John Paul tells them he is going back to Dublin as he can't burry his sister. After Tina JP is the only McQueen with Brain's they joke (October 20th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Toby

 

Toby kissing JP in the SUToby (Craig Daniel Adams) is another one of those characters who seem to exist only to make problems for our JP and at the same time further a relationship with a longer term love interest, in this case Kieron. When JP sets up a LGBT society Kris goads him into having a little fun with it and they "pick" Toby as the hottest in the bunch, and in Kris' words "throw down the gauntlet" to see who can pull him first (March 5th, 2008), JP wins by stalking up to him and planting a huge kiss on his purt lips. Toby can't believe his luck, and before long is betrothed with JP chasing him around the village like he is the worst kind of addictive drug, eventually JP dumps the lad and receives a scathing attack on his dress sense in return (March 6th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tony Hutchinson

Tony, Dom and Jacqui and the sham wedding

Tony (Nick Pickard) is almost married to Jacqui, the pair have a on off sort of relationship, liked you'd expect with any McQueen. As such he has a small amount of interaction with John Paul; JP urges Tony to "fight" for Jacqui when she prepares to marry Alec (March 22nd, 2007), and helps out in Il Nosh when they are short staffed (March 10th, 2008).

 

The McQueen's are held hostage in St Eustace Church by Niall/Matthew when he reveals to all who he really is. Myra is asked 6 questions by Niall for each one she gets wrong she must pick a child to die, answering only two questions correctly she is forced to save the lives of Michaela, because she is the youngest and Tina, because she has a child. Before anything can happen Jack, Darren, Tony and Dom arrive at the church, ruining Niall's plan, he blows everyone up instead (October 16th, 2008).

 

The majority of the McQueen's along with Dom and Niall end up in the basement when the floor gives way. Tina dies in Dom's arms after she makes him promise to tell baby Max about her when he is older. Everyone else including Niall get out of the church alive, his ghostly reflection on the back of an ambulance door watching the rest of the McQueen's grieve... (October 17th, 2008).

Warren Fox

Warren goes tree felling

Warren (Jamie Lomas) is Katy's brother. Warren is JP's boss when he DJ's at The Loft, and although the pair have only ever interacted on screen when Warren is used to highlight his open minded attitude and non anti gay stance, the conversations we have seen suggests the pair do spend some time together (27th of September 2007 and 7th of March 2008) whether it be a employer/employee relationship or more of a social one is unknown. The Loft is losing money supposedly because of the credit crunch, but in reality because the students have gone home, so JP proposes a gay night to diversify the club and bring in people with a high disposable income. Warren doesn't care about where the money comes from, he just wants it. He doesn't agree to JP's idea of sharing the profits so JP tries the same approach with Louise who agree's (July 22nd, 2008).

Zak Ramsey

 

Zak with happy handsZak Ramsey (Kent Riley) is another student from HCC, he and JP get on well, both enjoy music, with Zak expecting JP to play his decks at the student flat warming party (October 11th, 2007). JP is with Zak having a drink when he is introduced to Robin who is a friend of Zak, he later winds JP up when he questions if JP fancies Robin (January 22nd, 2008) and gloats when Rob and JP arrange to go on a date (January 23rd, 2008). Zak is the first to raise his doubts that perhaps Rob isn't the perfect guy for JP after all (January 25th, 2008). JP goes with Zak, Kris and Elliot to get the results at the end of the collage/university year (July 14th, 2008).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zoe Carpenter

 

Zoe Carpenter (Zoë Lister) was briefly JP's housemate at the start of the 2007 September term when he moved into Elliot's room for 5 weeks. The pair are still friends to date (March 7th, 2008) when they talk about her relationship with Mike Barnes.
