Spoilers: Darren opens up to Luke about his depression in Hollyoaks

Darren Osborne (Ashley Taylor Dawson) has been struggling with depression in Hollyoaks, but with his friendship with Kyle Kelly (Adam Rickitt) seemingly at an end, he opens up to pal Luke Morgan (Gary Lucy) about what he’s been going through.

Darren has been struggling emotionally for several months, but — in spite of him keeping quiet about how he’s been feeling — Kyle realised what his pal was going through, as he himself has been struggling with depression.

He wasted little time in confronting Darren, and revealed that he understands what he’s going through, because he himself has battled depression also.

Darren was grateful — as was Kyle — as the pair agreed to support one another from here on out.

However, conflict ensued following Kyle’s car accident, and Mandy (Sarah Jayne Dunn) encouraged Darren to focus on himself instead of Kyle, therefore he put an end to his friendship with Kyle.

Earlier this week, Mandy offered several suggestions to help Darren, but he rejected every single one of them, which left her wondering how she could help.

As a result, she went to see his GP in secret, and — in an effort to build him a support network — she asked Luke to take him out tomorrow.


In the coming episodes, the pair have their day out, and Darren reveals that he’s depressed.

How will Luke react?

Not so good it would seem, if previous spoilers are anything to go by, as they indicate Luke makes matters worse.

One to watch: Monday June 8 at 7pm on E4.
