Hollyoaks bad boy Warren Fox was put under further pressure to take a DNA test in tonight’s (August 9) first look episode.
Troubled teen Ella Richardson has been looking into who her father is, and thinks that it’s Warren. The latest episode began with him looking at a DNA test website, unsure whether to go through with it or not, when Sienna rocked up.
She stated that she doesn’t want Ella around the twins, trying to convince him that Mandy kept it a secret for a reason. Norma Crow stated that Sienna was just jealous, and badgered Warren about getting the test done.

Over at the garage, local criminal Terry Smart snuck in to rob the place, when Ella walked in and caught him in the act. She told him to be afraid because Warren is her dad.
Warren himself then turned up and punched Terry, but was stopped by Ella before he could hit Terry with a wrench. After sending Terry away with a warning, Warren and Ella embraced.
Later on, Warren explained what happened at the garage to Norma, with the latter impressed that Ella stood up to Terry, calling her “a chip off the old block”.
“I feel that she’s one of us. Don’t you feel that too?” Norma said. “Please, order that DNA test, or you’ll regret it for the rest of your life.”

Elsewhere in the episode, Norma told Goldie McQueen that she was selling the salon to Rafe Harcourt, who was looking to open a new office in the village, which would put Goldie out of a job.
James Nightingale was the one who convinced Norma to sell, as part of his revenge plan against the McQueen family. Driving the knife even further, he told them that if they failed to pay their rent, he would immediately evict them.
