HOLLYOAKS fans were in uproar tonight after Darren told Nancy their marriage might not last five years – if they foster Brooke.
The row erupted after Nancy came face to face with her sister Becca’s killer Fran and she decided to forgive the dying woman in hospital.

Following Fran’s death, Nancy comforts Brooke outside the hospital and viewers saw her cry as she realises the teenager will go back into care without her mum to look after her.
Nancy later tells her hubby she wants them to foster Brooke and reasons: “We’ve talked about fostering before.”
But he screams back: “She’s a teenager, so that’s a minimum five years of her living with us. How do we know we’ll be together in five years?”
Fans were not impressed with Darren’s bombshell and took to twitter to blast him.

In the hospital room, Brooke asks Nancy: “Do you think your sister would want you to forgive my mum?”
Through tears, she replies: Do you know my whole life I have tried to model myself on my sister. We even do the same job. All the big decisions I’ve had to make in life. I’ve thought, what would Becca do? She wasn’t just my sister. She was my hero.
“Do you know what Brooke, yes I think she would want me to forgive your mum.”
