Hollyoaks has been explosive following the death of Amy Barnes. Ryan Knight accused Ste Hayes of being the murderer and it looks like Kieron Richardson may have accidentally revealed the actual killer.

Things haven't been easy for the dad-of-two; his boyfriend Harry Thompson broke up with him after he discovered he had cheated on him and then he found out that his children are moving to America with their mum Amy and her husband Ryan Knight.

In last night's First Look episode viewers saw Ste in the shower recover from a recent blackout and attempt to piece his memory back with the help of Tony and Diane. Harry even returned and planned to sort things out in their relationship but things took a turn for the worse elsewhere in the village when Ryan and Mike found Amy's dead body.

After discovering her body the police officer instantly accused Ste of being the killer but he denied murdering the mother of his children.

On This Morning the 31-year-old actor appeared on the show to discuss the upcoming drama in the Channel 4 soap but it looks like he may have given away more than he was supposed to.

While speaking to Holly and Phil he tried to avoid talking about the suspects and instead said: "All I'm going to say is Ashley Slanina-Davies who plays Amy Barnes is an absolutely fantastic episode, even in the final scenes when I was… with my…"

The Hollyoaks star then started to squirm on the sofa and asked the presenters if This Morning was "live live" before saying: "I can't really concentrate right now because I feel like I might have just lost my job."


Does this mean Ste killed Amy?

Viewers have been speculating that Ste is the killer as the actor is due to go on paternity leave soon when his twin babies are born. Although Kieron explained that Ashley, who plays Amy, told him in May last year that she was returning to the show to be killed off.

He went on to say: "I think because people know that I'm having babies that they're like, 'Well it's not going to be him because he's just having maternity leave. They're gonna say it's you and then you're gonna come back for a bit.'

"But that's not the case, the story has been planned since before we got pregnant."

Ste is not the only suspect - there's also Mercedes McQueen, Ryan Knight, Harry Thompson, James Nightingale, DS Armstrong and an unnamed resident.

Fans have been speculating who they think the killer is on Twitter.
