Oliver "Ollie" Morgan, played by Aedan Duckworth, made his first screen appearance on 22 January 2018.[5] The character has previously been mentioned on-screen, but Duckworth's casting was confirmed on 6 December 2017.[3] Oliver is Luke Morgan (Gary Lucy) and Scarlett Morgan's (Susie Amy) son. Details of why Oliver comes to the village were not immediately released, but Daniel Kilkely of Digital Spy reported that "with Oliver now a teenager, he's sure to want answers from his dad."[3] Of his casting, Duckworth said: "I started two weeks ago and it was in at the deep end – I had to spend my whole second day crying! It has been fantastic working with Gary Lucy and Susie Amy and I am looking forward getting to work with more of the cast and settling in properly next year."[3]

It was announced on 25 March 2018 that Oliver would feature in a sexual abuse storyline with his football coach, Buster Smith (Nathan Sussex). The storyline, which is billed as "an emotional and challenging story", begins in April when Oliver confides in Buster over his home life.[6] Hollyoaks worked with the Survivors Manchester charity for the storyline.[6] Charity founder Duncan Craig described the subject as "so topical and relevant" and "hugely important".[6] He stated that the storyline would focus on details of grooming and Oliver's struggle to tell someone about the issue.[6] Duckworth took support from the charity and Lucy while filming the storyline and felt honoured to be handed the story.[6] Duckworth and executive producer Bryan Kirkwood hoped that the storyline would encourage others to seek support.[6] Kirkwood also wanted to encourage parents to speak to their children about topics like this and commented, "We are in a unique position of being able to talk to a bright and engaged audience about important issues without lecturing them."[6]

For his portrayl of Oliver, Duckworth was nominated for Best Soap Newcomer at the 2018 Digital Spy Reader Awards; he came in fourth place with 9.4% of the total votes.[7] The following year, Duckworth received his first National Television Awards nomination in the Newcomer category for his portrayal of Oliver.[8]

Oliver first appears when he crashes his dad Luke Morgan's (Gary Lucy) wedding to Mandy Richardson (Sarah Jayne Dunn) and reveals that he is Luke's son and that Luke is still married to Scarlett Morgan (Susie Amy) who was Luke's previous wife and Oliver's mother. Oliver and Luke bond after the wedding. The following day, Oliver appears at Luke's house and asks to stay with him. Luke agrees and is surprised to discover that Oliver has run away from Scarlett. When Scarlett returns and tries to take Oliver back to their home, Oliver insists to Scarlett that he wants to remain with Luke so Scarlett tearfully leaves the village. Oliver joins the football academy run by Buster Smith (Nathan Sussex) a former football champion player from back in the day from when he was much younger back then. Over the next few weeks, Oliver becomes closer to Buster confiding in him over situations in his home life such as his discovery that his father had been raped when he was younger after being told this by friend and also a member of Buster's football academy Imran Maalik (Ijaz Rana). Oliver has also been confiding in Buster and putting all of his trust in him such as telling Buster about his biological dad and new stepmum Mandy always arguing day in and day out and his dad turning back to the drink again after being an alcoholic before.

It is revealed on-screen that Buster is a paedophile who groomed and sexually abused his son Damon Kinsella's (Jacob Roberts) best friend, Brody Hudson (Adam Woodward), when he was an underage teenager, until his ex-wife and Damon's mother, Maggie Kinsella (Michelle Holmes), threatened him into leaving so that she could then protect vulnerable Brody from him and he now appears to be grooming Oliver as his next victim. After Oliver is injured while playing a game of football with Buster outside of The Bean Cafe, Buster takes him back to the changing rooms at the football academy and begins massaging his leg while also staring at Oliver lustfully. A few weeks later, when Oliver and Buster are alone together in the changing rooms at the football academy, Buster is telling Oliver about his potential when Oliver's leg injury comes back and Buster tells him to lie down on the bench so he can then properly examine it and shuts the door behind them. Oliver then runs out of the changing rooms scared and confused and although it is not specified on screen, it is implied that Buster has touched Oliver inappropriately. Oliver becomes traumatised but because of Luke's continued drinking, he feels that he cannot tell anyone so quits the football team instead but is convinced to re-join the football team again by Luke. Buster begins manipulating Oliver by telling him that he must prove to him of how much that he truly wants to be back on the football team again.

Oliver meets autistic teenager Brooke Hathaway (Talia Grant) and develops an instant attraction with the two seemingly hitting it off at The Bean Coffee Shop. Brooke later comes to watch Oliver play but after he underperforms, Buster takes him to the changing rooms at the football academy to berate him for being distracted today. He puts his hand on Oliver's knee inappropriately but this is witnessed secretly by Brooke. Oliver feels uncomfortable with Buster doing this to him and he rushes out of the football academy to get away from Buster. Oliver and Mandy run into Brooke the next day with Nancy Osborne (Jessica Fox) and Mandy teases that Oliver likes Brooke. Brooke then responds that Oliver is gay as she misinterpreted what she saw between Buster and Oliver yesterday with Brooke unaware that Buster is actually grooming Oliver. Oliver then shouts at Brooke causing her to have a breakdown after Oliver leaves. When he returns home, Mandy tries to get Oliver to open up to her but before he can say anything, they are interrupted by a drunken Luke. Oliver starts berating his father and stepmother before storming out of the house upset. Oliver then talks to Buster alone in the football academy changing rooms as he didn't know who else to turn to. Buster then manipulates the vulnerable teen by saying to Oliver that he can make him a star footballer with Buster's coaching skills as long as he does everything that he's told. He then places his hand on Oliver's knee inappropriately once again. He then asks Oliver if he understands or not. Oliver then tells him that he does understand before Buster shuts the door behind them to continue his abuse of the vulnerable poor youngster. When Buster is trying to raise money for Tony Hutchinson and Diane Hutchinson's gravely four-year-old daughter Dee Dee Hutchinson for Dee Dee to go to Disneyland Paris and is asking local businesses to donate, he bumps into Oliver in the village and see's Oliver alone and goes up to him and asks him if he wants to help him to raise the money and Oliver agrees to help him. After they've raised enough money for Dee Dee, Buster gives Oliver a mobile phone and tells Oliver to text him at any time about anything. Buster then tells him not to tell anyone else about it and Oliver agrees.

As Buster's sexual abuse continued, Oliver confessed to Scott Drinkwell (Ross Adams) that he is confused about his sexuality. He tells Scott that he knows that he likes girls but he also thinks that he might be gay as well and has been aggressively trying to pursue Brooke in order to cover it up. Scott is sympathetic with him and encourages him to talk to Luke about it. Oliver is unable to go through with it though and accidentally tells Luke that Scott has been harassing him instead. After Luke confronts Scott, Luke warns him to stay away from his teenage son for now on with him thinking that Scott is being inappropriate with him due to Oliver being underage. Oliver tries to apologise to Scott but when Scott tells him that he has to deal with his sexuality rather than ignore it though, Oliver is then homophobic towards Scott as a result by calling him a puff and then runs away. He attempts to speak to Luke again but finds him drinking in the restaurant with best mate Darren Osbourne instead though which results in Oliver crying his eyes out when he see's Luke and him drinking together in the Hutch restaurant and witness's this from outside with Luke not realising that his own son saw him drinking once again. Buster lies to Oliver by telling him that Scott has agreed to let Oliver be the poster boy for the Bean. Buster takes several intimate photographs of Oliver when they're alone together at the football academy changing rooms which he later confesses to Luke. As Luke is drunk at the time though, Oliver makes him promise to wait until he is sober before confronting Buster. The next morning though however, Luke cannot remember anything at all about what Oliver was saying to him causing Oliver to angrily confront him and reveal to him that he knows that Luke was raped years ago. Luke then explains to Oliver that he began drinking as a way to cope with the abuse that he suffered back then. Buster later convinces Oliver that telling Luke anything will put unnecessary pressure on his dad and tells him that his dad is an alcoholic and people like him only care about where the next drink is going to come from and that they're too distracted to think about their loved ones instead as well so Oliver agrees to keep quiet but later steals a bottle of wine though and begins drinking in secret in order to cope with everything that's happened. Brody later convinces Ollie to report Buster to the police and he is arrested. Buster pleads not guilty at the hearing and Ollie lashes out at Brooke, but soon apologises to her. Ollie is disgusted when the truth about Imran is revealed. Him and Brooke get closer but Brooke is told by Nancy that she could not be friends with him, but eventually they become friends again. During Buster's trial, Ollie is ripped to pieces by Buster's defence team and because of this, he agrees that Brooke would not be able to cope giving evidence. Imran reveals that Buster attempted to sexually assault him in Barcelona, shocking everybody. Buster is found guilty and sentenced to 6 years in prison. Ollie and Brooke begin dating after almost sharing a kiss.

Roberts said that Buster enjoys "a laugh and a joke".[11] Roberts expressed his delight at the expansion of his on-screen family and praised Sussex, commenting, "He's already part of the Hollyoaks family!"[11]

Damon, Scott Drinkwell (Ross Adams) and Brody Hudson (Adam Woodward) call a number on Maggie's bucket list and are shocked when Buster answers and walks into The Dog in the Pond pub.[10][11] Buster is estranged from Damon following Maggie throwing him out for adultery and then his decision to concentrate on his professional football career rather than his family.[10] On Buster and Damon's relationship, Sussex said, "there is an instant connection there between father and son."[10] Damon knows very little about his father and the lack of contact between them has made Damon believe that Buster does not care for him.[11]

It was announced on 25 March 2018 that Buster would feature in a sexual abuse storyline with his football student, Ollie Morgan (Aedan Duckworth). The storyline, which is billed as "an emotional and challenging story", begins in April when Oliver confides in Buster over his home life.[6] Hollyoaks worked with the Survivors Manchester charity for the storyline.[6] Charity founder Duncan Craig described the subject as "so topical and relevant" and "hugely important".[6] He stated that the storyline would focus on details of grooming and Oliver's struggle to tell someone about the issue.[6] Executive producer Bryan Kirkwood hoped that the storyline would encourage others to seek support.[6] He also wanted to encourage parents to speak to their children about topics like this and commented, "We are in a unique position of being able to talk to a bright and engaged audience about important issues without lecturing them."[6]

Buster first arrives in the village shortly after the death of his ex-wife, Maggie Kinsella, to see their son, Damon. Maggie had thrown Buster out after his numerous affairs and he missed out on most of Damon's life. Damon's girlfriend, Holly Cunningham, convinces Damon to give his father a chance and they agree to re-build their father-son relationship. Damon's longtime best friend, Brody Hudson is not happy to see Buster and it's clear that there is bad blood between them. Buster begins dating Marnie Nightingale and moves into the flat above the Dog with her, her kids Alfie and Ellie, as well as Damon and Brody.

Buster decides to set up his own football academy for teenagers. Many local kids, including Ollie Morgan and Imran Maalik, sign up. Ollie confides in Buster about how difficult his home life is due to his father, Luke, having a drinking problem and constantly fighting with his wife, Mandy. Buster tells Ollie he can trust him with anything. Brody confides in Ollie's mother, Scarlett, that someone he trusted abused him when he was young and it is obvious he is referring to Buster. It becomes clear then that Buster is not just being friendly to Ollie— he is grooming him so he can sexually abuse him.

As part of his grooming, Buster gives Ollie special attention and makes him team captain. One day, Buster is giving Ollie a sports massage and sexually abuses him for the first time. Ollie is upset after the incident, but Buster convinces him that he misinterpreted what happened. Buster abuses Ollie again under the guise of a massage, which causes Ollie to quit the team. Buster convinces Ollie to rejoin the team and continues to abuse him. Buster has Ollie pose for photos without his clothes on. Luke discovers the photos and when he asks Ollie about them, he points the finger at Scott Drinkwell. Brody suspects Buster is the real culprit and confronts him about abusing him as a child. It comes out that Maggie found out about Buster abusing Brody and that is actually why she threw him out. Ollie tells the police it was actually Buster who abused him and he is arrested. In 11 January 2019 he was found guilty, he was sentenced six years in prison for groom Ollie.

She hoped that the storyline would help to raise awareness for homelessness.[18]

Kilkelly of Digital Spy reported that Harley arrives after learning that Peri's mother, Leela Lomax (Kirsty-Leigh Porter), is offering a £5,000 reward for information on Peri's location. Harley takes advantage of Leela, but Leela's boyfriend, Louis Loveday (Karl Collins) is suspicious of her and does not believe that she has information about Peri.[18] Harley features in a special episode focusing on Peri's homelessness, broadcast in April 2018. It emerges that during her time on the streets, Peri met Harley and homeless man, Dean (Alfie Kingsnorth).[19] O'Donnell felt fortunate to work on the storyline. Centrepoint's head of public affairs Paul Noblet said that the homelessness storyline reflects the reality of homelessness for many young people.[19]

Harley's exit is first broadcast on 11 March and sees her depart at the conclusion of her polyamorous relationship with Peri and Tom Cunningham (Ellis Hollins).[21] Lambert expressed her gratitude for the role of Harley and on Harley's departure, she commented, "You didn’t honestly think she’d settle down did you?

When Louis questions Harley's motives, Leela reveals that she is going to help her find Peri. They don't find Peri so Louis convinces Leela that Harley is conning her.

Breda McQueen, played by Moya Brady made her first on screen appearance on 26 June 2018.[24] The character was known about in casting references for Sylver McQueen (David Tag),[25] but the character's arrival to the village and casting wasn't announced until 22 June 2018.[24] On 6 January 2020, Breda died in the E4 spinoff series Hollyoaks Later.

Breda is a cousin of Myra McQueen (Nicole Barber-Lane) and the mother of Goldie (Chelsee Healey) and Sylver McQueen. Breda arrives in the village following Mercedes’ release from prison, and insists that Goldie give him a place to stay. However, when Goldie refuses, Breda resorts to "crafty" measures. On her character, Brady commented that she was a "strong and colourful individual" and that she didn't have "a lot of fear for authority." Brady also said that "Breda comes from the firm but fair school of motherhood," and described her as a "tigress." With Sylver having been in prison, Breda kept tabs on him, but Brady said that Breda doesn't have a favourite child and that as her character becomes more settled in the village, her love for Goldie would shine through.[24]

Arriving in Hollyoaks to stay with the McQueens', Breda began working as a nanny for Leela Lomax (Kirsty-Leigh Porter) – but secretly agreed to "two time" Leela by working for Jack Osborne (Jimmy McKenna) too. Jack tried to cover for Breda by pretending they were in a relationship – much to Leela's amusement. But Leela figured it out and allowed Breda to be nanny to both her and Jack. Eventually, Breda's friendship with Jack would turn into a real relationship.

On Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) and Russ Owen's (Stuart Manning) wedding day in November 2018, it was shockingly revealed that Breda was a serial killer. Breda discovered that Russ had been unfaithful with Goldie, resulting in a pregnancy, and had pressurised her into aborting their child. Enraged, Breda murdered Russ. She was then revealed to have killed Glenn Donovan (Bob Cryer) and Carl Costello (Paul Opacic) for being "sinners" and "dead beat dads". In January 2019 Breda took revenge on Louis Loveday (Karl Collins) for cheating with three women, Leela, Simone Loveday (Jacqueline Boatswain) and Simone's sister, Martine Deveraux (Kéllé Bryan) pushing some shelving onto him as he called for a taxi to leave town. Breda moved Louis to an old pig farm once owned by her parents making out she was caring for him and took him there to recover, Louis discovered Breda was responsible for the deaths of Carl, Glenn and Russ whilst writing a letter to Simone and attempted to escape but was thwarted when Breda returned to the farm. She puts him back into bed and believes him when he says it's Leela he wants to be with, Breda makes tea and as she strips the bed Louis switches the cups which Breda notices, just then Simone arrives at the farm calling for Breda, before Louis can react Breda smothers him keeping him from shouting to Simone. Breda goes to Simone and gets a lift to the village, meanwhile, Louis escapes and Breda finds him hiding in the barn. She says she's going to make some tea but then spots the letter confessing to the murders that Louis found. Louis begs for his life but Breda kills him by bludgeoning him with a telephone. She returns to Leela telling her to move on. Later at the farm Breda burns Louis's clothes and mobile phone in a metal canister. When she leaves a mysterious hooded figure takes Louis's phone and removes the sim card. The hooded figure is later revealed as Mac Nightingale (David Easter), who begins to blackmail Breda. He orders her to murder his son James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan), much to her reluctance. Eventually, she slips poison into his coffee, and James collapses on a park bench. She later bakes a lasagna, which Mac eats in celebration, but is stunned to realise Breda's poisoned that too. She reveals James will be okay, and she always intended to kill Mac, who in a weakened state tries to attack her but she kills him by hitting him with the lasagne dish. In July 2019, it was revealed that it was Breda who killed Vinnie, not Sylver, as he survived the fall, but Breda finished him off, and let Sylver take the blade. Later in the month, Breda planned to kill Tony Hutchinson after he confessed his past mistakes to her but Breda didn't kill him, after learning Harry Thompson was going on the run. Breda fatally stabs Harry in an alleyway believing he was a bad dad for abandoning his son Isaac. Harry then died as a result of his injuries. Tony later discovers that Breda killed his son and she stabs Tony in the stomach. It was later revealed that Breda was keeping Tony prisoner at the pig farm.

In October 2019, Breda's family begin to get suspicous of where she is going all the time. Goldie learns she's going to the pig farm and Breda lies that she is mentally ill. Breda pretends to have dementia, but when Goldie finds her at the pig farm again, Breda confesses to killing Harry. She blames it on her "dementia" and Goldie agrees to keep it a secret. Hollyoaks Later on 6 January we saw Breda’s story come to an end when Sylver McQueen, Goldie McQueen, Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) and John-Paul McQueen (James Sutton) find out her serial killer secret. Mercedes finds Tony at the pig farm but Breda sneaks up and attacks her, after stabbing Tony again and locking Mercedes in the cage too (which she and Tony eventually escape from thanks to help from Goldie). After a heated confrontation in the house, Breda shoots Sylver with a bolt gun and sets the pig farm on fire. Mercedes stops Breda from killing her and Sylver as the house burns, the two of them fight, as Breda attacks Mercedes with a shard of glass Sylver uses his last ounce of strength to stick a pair of knitting needles in her head, killing her instantly.

She added that she found it challenging.[39]

Hudson filmed an exit from the series in January 2019 and Donna-Marie departs the series in the episode originally broadcast on 26 April 2019.[40] In October 2019, Hudson was spotted by paparazzi returning to the set of Hollyoaks, sparking rumours that she would reprise the role.[41] This was confirmed by a show trailer released on 2 January 2020 and it was revealed that Hudson would appear in a stint as Donna-Marie reunites with her daughter, Juliet Quinn (Niamh Blackshaw).[42] She return on 16 January 2020.

In flashbacks it is revealed, she was once paid by Mac Nightingale to have sex with his gay son, James, on his sixteenth birthday in order to "turn him straight." James got her pregnant and his mother Marnie (Lysette Anthony) paid her to have an abortion. Donna-Marie did not go through with the abortion and gave birth to Romeo. Years later, Donna-Marie blackmailed Mac and Marnie that she would tell James about Romeo unless they paid her £100,000, which they did.

In the present day, Donna-Marie has been kicked out of her flat. Donna-Marie comes face-to-face with the Nightingales again. James tears into Donna-Marie for being a junkie, causing her to seek out drugs and overdose. Mac lets Donna-Marie move into Cindy Cunningham's (Stephanie Waring) house along with Romeo and Juliet.

When Mac threatens to throw Donna-Marie out of the house, she reveals he is Juliet's father. After Mac and Donna-Marie's misdeeds are revealed, she flees town.

Some time later, James tracks Donna-Marie down and tells her that Romeo has been charged with Mac's murder (Breda McQueen is the real culprit). Donna-Marie agrees to confess to murdering Mac after James promises her she will get bail and he will give her money to start a new life. After she confesses, Donna-Marie is furious to learn James lied and she will not be granted bail. Donna-Marie is then taken away to prison.

Romeo was raised by his drug-addicted prostitute mother, Donna-Marie. Romeo was conceived when Donna-Marie was paid by Mac Nightingale (David Easter) to sleep with his gay sixteen-year-old son, James, to "make him straight." Romeo grew up in unsafe, unstable environment and often had to shield himself and his half-sister, Juliet (Niamh Blackshaw), from Donna-Marie's clients.

Romeo first appears in a flashback as a young child telling Donna-Marie he wishes he had a father. Romeo arrives in town to meet James, but then decides against it. Romeo meets Lily McQueen (Lauren McQueen) and is instantly attracted to her. Romeo goes into business promoting illegal raves with Lily's husband, Prince.

Romeo finds out James is having an affair with Harry Thompson (Parry Glasspool) and tries to blackmail Harry over it, which leads to he and James finally meeting properly. Romeo agrees to help James ruin Harry's wedding to Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson). James is heartbroken when Harry goes through with the wedding and, in a moment of vulnerability, he comes onto Romeo, who finally has to tell him he is his father. Romeo is devastated when James rejects him. Romeo declares his love for Lily, who admits she has feelings too, but she ultimately decides to stay with Prince. Romeo discovers that Prince has testicular cancer, but is refusing to tell anyone. This damages Lily and Prince's marriage and she sleeps with Romeo. Lily agrees to run away with Romeo, but then she finds out about Prince's condition and she is disgusted to learn Romeo knew about it all along.

Romeo, Donna-Marie, and Romeo's half-sister, Juliet (Niamh Blackshaw) are invited by Mac to move into Cindy Cunningham's (Stephanie Waring) house. Romeo is appalled when he discovers that Donna-Marie and Mac have tampered with Cindy's bipolar disorder medication. After Mac ejects Romeo from the house, James offers to let Romeo move in with him and they start building a relationship. After finding out that James broke up with Harry to focus on him, he gives them his blessing to be together. With Prince having left town, Lily and Romeo finally become a proper couple. Prince confronts them about their affair and Lily decides she cannot be with either of them.

Mac is murdered and Romeo becomes a prime suspect. The police discover a vial of poison in Romeo's jacket, which was planted by Mac's murderer, Breda McQueen (Moya Brady). James tells Romeo he has to leave the country. Lily agrees to come with Romeo, but changes her mind after she realises she wants to be with Prince. Lily tragically dies from sepsis, devastating Romeo. Romeo is locked up for Mac's murder, but is later released when Donna-Marie is tricked by James into confessing.

Romeo tries to comfort James when he found out that Harry was murdered, but James hits Romeo. Things gets worse when James began abusing Romeo, and Romeo moved out and secretly stayed in the Maalik's empty household. He was found by Peri Lomax, who threatened to tell his grandmother, Marnie Nightingale, but Romeo confess to Peri that James hit him, and the reason why he stayed at the Maalik's.

Peri visits Romeo the next day and told him about the day she found out that her 'parents' are her grandparents, and advices Romeo to keep talking to James. Marnie later finds Romeo, when Peri told Marnie what had happened. Marnie reasons with Romeo that James had regretted for what he did and Marnie takes Romeo home, only to find James about to attack Juliet. Romeo comforts James when he, Juliet and Marnie attended to Harry's funeral.

When Juliet starts hanging out with Sid Sumner (Billy Price), the son of the Far-Right Group leader, Stuart Sumner), Romeo tells him to stay away. At Christmas Romeo and Peri set their friends Yasmine Maalik (Haiesha Mistry) and Tom Cunningham (Ellis Hollins) on a date and they both went to a Christmas party together.

Grant is autistic and is the first female autistic actress to feature regularly on a British television series. Executive producer Bryan Kirkwood said that Brooke understands how her condition can affect her life. He added, "The best way to describe Brooke's autism is to say that she experiences the world a hundred times more intensely than other people."[45] He explained that while having an ice-cream with someone can become "cherished experiences for Brooke that she will never stop talking about", a nasty remark from a schoolteacher could "cut Brooke to the core".[45] Grant told the Loose Women panel that she and Brooke are different as they have different forms of autism. She added how "exciting" it was to represent autism.[46]

Brooke attends Hollyoaks High School with Imran Maalik (Ijaz Rana) and Oliver Morgan (Aedan Duckworth).[45] Kirkwood stated that Brooke would be introduced with a secret.[45] Hollyoaks placed an open casting call for an actress to portray the character and worked with charity The National Autistic Society and theatre company Access All Areas during the creation and casting processes, and Grant when developing the character.[45] Grant enjoyed appearing in Hollyoaks and was proud to represent autistic women in television, something which she felt was not portrayed enough.

Brooke then signs up for Nancy's tutoring classes and during a session, she reveals to Nancy that she is Fran's daughter and that Fran is dying. Brooke and Nancy then visit Fran in hospital and Fran begs for Nancy's forgiveness.[44] Fran later dies, leaving Brooke all alone and not wanting her to be sent into the foster care system, Nancy convinces Jack and Darren that they should foster her instead. Although initially wary of her at first though, Darren eventually agrees and they convince the social worker to let Brooke stay with them. Brooke develops a connection with Oliver and the two go on a coffee date together and she later goes to watch him play football as well. However, after seeing Oliver in the changing rooms at the football academy with his football coach Buster Smith (Nathan Sussex), she sees Buster putting his hand on Oliver's knee. The next day in the morning, she outs him as gay to his stepmother Mandy Richardson (Sarah Jayne Dunn). Unknown to Brooke, Oliver is actually being groomed by Buster and in retaliation, Oliver shouts at her by calling her an idiot when he told her that he was just suffering from cramp and that Buster was just helping him causing her to have a breakdown after Oliver left. She breaks up with Imran after finding out that he was abusing Misbah and Yasmine. She then soon begins dating Ollie.

For her portrayal of Brooke, Grant was nominated for Best Soap Newcomer at the 2018 Digital Spy Reader Awards; she came in eighth place with 3.9% of the total votes.[7]
