Hollyoaks' Ollie Morgan (Gabriel Clark) isn't having the easiest time of things at the moment, but could he find his way back into drugs as a way to cope?

In tonight's (January 27) first-look episode, James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) reveals a shocking proposition for Ollie after a very stressful day when he and his family were all out looking for his dad Luke after he went missing following a conversation with Stephen MacGregor.

Ollie had been posing as Luke (Gary Lucy) and arranged to meet with Stephen (Cameron Hutchinson) himself, but Stephen found Luke first.

The pair talked about old times and he apologised for his role in Luke's attack, but it was unclear whether Luke's dementia allowed him to truly understand what Stephen was talking about.

Later, when Luke goes missing, Ollie is distraught and when he sees Stephen he lets loose, blaming him for everything that has happened to Luke since the night of his attack.

Eventually, Luke turned up after announcing he'd been shopping for bikes, so everyone, a little relieved something worse hadn't happened, went on with their day.

However, Ollie wasn't in a great place and spoke to Luke on the phone saying he was going to hang out with some friends, but when he hung up he was alone and holding some drugs.

Struggling after his mother's death, James finds himself out alone and spotted Ollie looking a bit suspicious.

"Up to no good? My favourite type of behaviour," he said to Ollie.

"Life just goes so fast, there's nothing I can do about it. I can't stop time. Listen, I know it's not the right decision but, just for a moment..."

"Sounds like you're as desperate as I am," James noted, before stating that there are enough drugs for two of them. "Why don't we let fate decide?"

James takes a coin out of his pocket and flips it, but before we can see the outcome, it showed Ollie with tears running down his cheeks.

Will he take James' offer?
