In the aftermath, Ripley Lennox's clothing stall enjoyed a boost in orders, while journalists descended on the market looking to cover the story.

One of the reporters introduced himself as a writer for the Walford Gazette – the fictional newspaper which is often seen in EastEnders.

Cindy (Stephanie Waring) enjoyed the press attention, falsely making out that she'd been championing environmentally-friendly policies at the market since it launched.

Zara Morgan (Kelly Condron) was quick to ask Cindy what had sparked her sudden change of heart, as she'd previously claimed to be too busy to worry about climate change.

Pulling out her phone to bring up a viral video, Cindy replied: "I do have a lot on my plate, but so do a lot of other people.

"Check this out. Sammy Carrington is 11 years old with terminal cancer and he's in Holby City Hospital, fighting for a world he won't even see."

Cindy then withdrew her threat to sack Ripley (Ki Griffin) from the market and also agreed to drop a police complaint that she'd made over Brooke's break-in.

As Ripley celebrated this success, they declared their love for Brooke. Sadly, Brooke was unable to respond in the same way, rushing off rather than returning the sentiment.

Hollyoaks airs new episodes from Mondays to Fridays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look screenings at 7pm on E4. Selected omnibus episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video.
