But he is not back to make friends as Warren starts stalking his ex Sienna, then kidnaps her boyfriend Brody.
Unhinged Warren starts taking photos of Brody before a dramatic confrontation with Sienna.
She says: “I am going to take back my children and show Warren Fox what it feels like to lose everything.”
Will Sienna finally be reunited with her children?
Nancy in shock stabbing
The county lines drugs storyline begins at the start of the year – and Nancy falls victim when trouble ensues.

A fight breaks out in the playground between Sid and Imran as tensions reach boiling point.
But it ends in disaster when Nancy tries to break it up and is stabbed.
John Paul rushes over to cradle injured Nancy as the kids get out their phones to record.
Breda’s explosive last stand
Next week’s Hollyoaks Later will show the climax to Breda McQueen’s dramatic storyline.
Breda manages to trap Mercedes – telling her she has stuck her nose in for the last time.
Imprisoned Mercedes holds Tony as he lies dying in their cage.
Breda says: “We shall wake up together in heaven’s glorious light.”
It all comes to an end with an explosion at the pig farm that leaves Breda and Sylver unconscious.
Who will survive?
Edward’s daughter Verity arrives

She says: “I am good at keeping secrets. Especially sordid ones.”
Donna-Marie is back
Lucy-Jo Hudson’s character returns to the village to reunite with daughter Juliet.
But James does not seem happy to see her back as he doesn’t want Juliet to find out the truth.
He says: “Juliet can’t eve know the things I’ve done. They need to stay in the past.”
Mercedes’ shooters are exposed
James says the guilt of shooting Mercedes is killing him and he is turning himself into police.
Determined to keep their secret, Grace replies: “You you are not. I’m not going to let you.”
Grace says she will never mention the shooting again – but their incriminating conversation is heard by Jesse.
