Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Ollie Morgan's drug use has been revisited in the latest Hollyoaks first-look episode.
The teenager first started buying drugs from local dealer Jordan Price (Connor Calland) before the soap's hiatus, as he struggled to cope with giving up his and Brooke Hathaway's son for adoption.
In Wednesday's (September 16) E4 instalment, Ollie's (Aedan Duckworth) temper got the better of him when he wanted to go to pal Imran's (Ijaz Rana) house party — but Brooke (Talia Grant) refused because she worried it would be triggering.
Ollie went into a spiral, hitting out at his girlfriend for always having to worry about her autism at the expense of his own needs and even for convincing him to give up their son.
Brooke would understandably storm off alone, while this was also the last viewers saw of Ollie during the episode. However, Imran received some shocking information later in the night.
Sid Sumner (Billy Price) and Juliet Nightingale (Niamh Blackshaw) had infiltrated the party to sell ketamine on Jordan and drugs boss Victor Brothers's (Benjamin O'Mahoney) orders, without Imran knowing.
When Imran demanded Sid tell him where Ollie had gone off to, Sid insisted that Ollie wouldn't want to see him because he was "off his face on ket[amine]".
While viewers will have to wait until next week for the fallout of Sid's revelation, Aedan Duckworth did shed some light on why Ollie turned to drugs earlier in the year.
"He'll have a constant struggle dealing with losing his baby and that temptation to escape those feelings will always be there, especially now Jordan is more present in Hollyoaks," he explained.
