Hollyoaks spoilers follow.

James Nightingale has made a discovery about Rayne Royce on Hollyoaks and the influence’s web of lies is slowly unraveling.

Rayne has been manipulating boyfriend Romeo in recent weeks, his actions including an attempt to blackmail Peri and falsely accusing Prince McQueen of sexual assault.

Last night’s episode saw the influencer turn violent, pushing Romeo through a table as she panicked after he threatened to leave, and tonight’s episode (August 22) started when the couple was shocked by what happened.

As James began his plans to unearth his son’s girlfriend through a private detective, Rayne pleaded with Romeo not to leave her until he had a chance to explain himself.

She argued that her behavior was partly due to childhood bullying, before making a shock confession about ex-boyfriend Brent, who had recently committed suicide.

The influencer revealed that he told Brent to end his life just one day before his death, but Romeo was upset that he had let Lacey think he was the last person to speak to Brent while he was alive.

Afterwards, Romeo left to clear his head and mend his injured hand, telling Peri that he just got into a bit of a fight and cut his hand. While recalling a time when she and Juliet had argued, she revealed that she forgave her as she loved her.

While Peri suspected that Romeo wasn’t telling the truth, her attempt to get more information backfired when she returned to Rayne, who had packed her things in an attempt to gain sympathy.

Thinking of Peri’s words, Romeo took Rayne back and revealed that he didn’t want to lose her so soon after Juliet’s death, the influencer grinning devilishly as he turned away.

Peri returned to James, Hunter, and Prince to relay information about her conversation with Romeo, but James revealed that he had found no damning evidence against Rayne. However, he noted that he was able to track down Brent’s mother, Cheryl.

As the group located her social media accounts, they noticed a lot of negative comments directed at Rayne on her channels, realizing that the influencer was deleting messages from her feed.

Cheryl holds the key to Rayne’s downfall?
