Hope has similarly led many a big soap storyline, and the character features heavily this week, as she seemingly start a fire in Alina Pop’s (Ruxandra Porojnicu) flat.

The little girl steals a set of keys to Alina’s home, and after telling Fiz (Jennie McAlpine) thats she wants nothing to do with Tyrone Dobbs’ (Alan Halsall) new baby, she sneaks back into flat.

Alina, meanwhile, is soundly asleep, unaware of the imminent danger, as smoke creeps under her bedroom door!

Eileen and Sally realise the salon flat is on fire, and call for an ambulance. Tyrone discovers what’s transpired, and sets off to the hospital. Hope, meanwhile, watches from the window.
