She’s very shocked as it comes as quite a surprise! She’s also a bit unsure about how Darren will react at first, and is not sure if the timing is right.
She’s feeling a little off and under the weather, so she takes a pregnancy test just to be sure… Not expecting it to be positive!
Definitely! They’ve talked about having a baby together, but this wasn’t planned for right now. I think she’s worried he’ll freak out and not want the baby.
It’s actually Darren who tells Nancy about the pregnancy, and Mandy only finds out she knows later on. Understandably, she’s a bit bitter to say the least…
She’s always been a brilliant mum with a lot of love for her children. Her first baby sadly died of cot death, and she struggles with the grief of this. Her daughter Ella is the love of her life. She did have a troubled time when Ella was taken into care down to Luke’s drinking, but Mandy would do anything for her children and has stepped up as a fab step-mum to Ollie.
It’s strong, but they’re having trouble dealing with all the other factors in their life. They really want to be together and have been through a lot to get there.
They’re super excited and happy that there’s finally some positive news for their family.
Luke comes into her life again and she has to come to terms with her new situation, along with some unexpected problems…
I think because I’ve played Mandy for so long, it wouldn’t feel right being any other character in this show! I’ve been so lucky to play a character that’s had lots of light and shade in her life, and Mandy has given me many opportunities as an actress, with many challenging storylines.
How will everyone react to Mandy's pregnancy? You'll have to tune in to Hollyoaks all this week at 7pm on E4 to find out!
