Maxine Minniver (Nikki Sanderson) has been fooling everyone in Hollyoaks into believing that shes seriously ill, but the truth is set to be exposed courtesy of Dr Levi Rochester (Cerith Flinn), who — after being given his marching orders several weeks back — takes yet another interest in the young womans mysterious illness.
For several months, Maxine has been faking symptoms and staging falls in order to make out that shes suffering from a potentially deadly illness. However, her impromptu appearance on This Morning opposite Alison Hammond several weeks back has proven to be her downfall, as it raised the accomplished Dr Levis interests and, as a result, he came to the village in the hopes of investigating her case further.
In spite of his good intentions, Levi didnt get off to the best of starts, as — after Damon (Jacob Roberts) overheard him discussing the possibility of Maxine faking her illness with Mitchell (Imran Adams) — Maxine made it clear that she didnt want the docs help.
However, with a few weeks having passed since this incident, Levi wants to review Maxines case once more, so he decides to pay her a visit. Later, he makes it clear that he believes shes faking her symptoms.
Maxines not pleased to hear what Levi has to say, and shes left fuming when he suggests it would be good for her to get booked in with a psychologist.
What will Maxines next move be?
