Hollyoaks has aired the first look at Darren Osborne's shock kidnapping.

Darren has been taken while trying to buy his partner Nancy a present, but questions remain over who is behind the abduction and why they targeted him.

In Friday's (November 5) first look episode, Darren was left to clean the house by Nancy since he's still without work. As he took out the rubbish, he found a positive pregnancy test and assumed it must be for Ella.

Darren immediately texted Nancy during her meeting with Sally St Clair for the deputy co-head teach position that "Ella's pregnant!!", leading her to rush back home.

It turned out that Darren got the wrong end of the stick, and it was actually Nancy who is pregnant with her and Darren's child.

Darren reacted badly, telling Nancy she was being selfish for keeping the pregnancy from him. Nancy rightly pointed out it took both of them to get into the situation, so she kicked him out to get his head around the news.

Realising he'd messed up, Darren got the name of a jeweller in town from Luke so he could buy Nancy something to make it up to her.

The next time viewers saw Darren, he was on a bed with his arms and legs bound on a bed, with the jewellery bag on the nightstand next to him.

As Darren begged his captor that there'd been a mistake, viewers saw that this assailant was actually carrying a loaded gun.

Back at home, Nancy shared the news with Jack that she's expecting, but was furious that Darren wasn't answering her calls.
