There wasn’t a dry eye among viewers tonight as an emotional Nancy Osborne (Jessica Fox) was forced to give birth in a locked classroom.
The Hollyoaks scenes saw Nancy go into labour while she was talking with Felix Westwood and things got more complicated as Charlie had locked the door after rowing with her nephew.
Felix soon realised that he would have to be the one to guide Nancy through it – although he was pretty clueless.
Nancy was horrified when he admitted that he hadn’t been there for Martine when she had given birth – as he had been trying to nail a DJ-ing contract by finishing a set.
Nancy give him a piece of her mind and he vowed not to let her down.
As Nancy sat down with contractions getting stronger, she started to fear she was going to lose her baby.
Viewers will remember that she has tragically lost two pregnancies previously – with a miscarriage in 2012 with Darren’s child and a stabbing robbing her of Kyle Kelly’s baby in 2020.
Nancy was emotional in hard-hitting scenes as she opened up to Felix about never having a day where she doesn’t think about them.
She told him that she wonders, every time she sets a table, what the two children she lost would have been like.
As she cried, she pondered what they would have looked and sounded like as well as the kind of people they would turn out to be.
The human driven drama hit fans right in the heart and soon Nancy felt that she had to push.
With Felix’s help, she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and she lovingly cradled her close to her.
Father Darren is abroad in Mallorca, as the birth wasn’t expected for another three weeks.
But his joy at becoming a dad will be impacted by the loss of his best friend Luke, who has fallen to his death while on holiday.
