TV Land: soapville.

Byline: Nicola Methven and Polly Hudson

SOAPVILLE'S been very worried about Bombhead from Hollyoaks for a few weeks now.

He's been acting very strangely - and bear in mind this is a guy for whom chatting to the ghost of his mate's dead dad is the norm.

He's been avoiding his friends, then he got drunk and accidentally wet himself in public.

But the biggest sign that he had a problem was when Channel 4 started advertising a freephone helpline at the end of every episode.

Bombhead's worries seemed to have stemmed from the fact that his mum was ill and he had to care for her.

We kept seeing him cooking her dinner and making cups of tea for her - but the food was never eaten and the mugs remained untouched.

During one episode last week, Soapville joked to a friend that maybe Bombhead's mum had died ages ago and he was keeping her in a wardrobe with loads of Magic Tree air fresheners, a la Avid Merrion.

Well, guess what? The joke's on us because that's exactly what has happened. Really.

Late last week we were treated to our first glimpse of Ma Bombhead - well, just her withered hand actually. Bombhead was holding on to it while he gazed adoringly at her face. Thank goodness we didn't see that. YUCK!

So prepare for even more near misses where people almost open the door to her room but at the last minute don't.

Never mind the fact that if her hand is in such a state, the smell would be a dead giveaway to anyone within a five-mile radius. Unless she's a freak of nature who's as fragrant in death as she was in life. Hollyoaks in non-realistic plot shocker, eh?
