Hollyoaks‘ newest villain Jordan Price continues to put dark plans in place next week, looking for someone to deal drugs for him.
Jordan has come to the village with an ulterior motive, wanting to help expand the operations of a drugs gang that he works for.
Monday’s E4 episode sees the sly newcomer leave his cousin Sid Sumner unsettled as he gets to know the Lomaxes better.

Sid warns Jordan that Leela (Kirsty-Leigh Porter) and Peri (Ruby O’Donnell) have been good to him, so he doesn’t want anything to ruin that.
Not taking the hint, Jordan vows that Hollyoaks village will be his new playground for criminal activity, as there are no rival gangs in the area and it’s ripe for the picking.
Jordan even tries to recruit Sid to sell the drugs for him, but will the impressionable teen be tempted?
Either way, with Jordan continuing to fool Leela and Peri with his show of respectability in our new photos, it’s clear that he’s going nowhere anytime soon.

Billy Price, who plays Sid, recently explained: “I think Sid is a bit cautious because he knows what Jordan is like. Sid knows that he’s a baddie, but they’re still best of buds.
“He knows he has to be careful with what he does and what he says. I think he knows that Jordan is going to cause a bit of trouble in the village.”
Jordan’s arrival ties in with Hollyoaks‘ new storyline focusing on County Lines drug dealing – the term used for when drugs gangs from big cities target children and other vulnerable people to expand their operations into smaller towns and villages.

Billy added: “Weirdly, the first time I met Connor Calland, who plays Jordan, was at the front of reception and from that chance meeting we just clicked.
“I think, in my opinion, we have good chemistry and it shows on screen. Everything comes naturally when we work together. I think, for the viewers, and for the people who are watching it, it gives it a more real vibe.
“It feels like you’re actually watching two cousins and that’s exactly what we wanted to do with this County Lines storyline – make it as real as possible.”
Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
