Today’s jaunt to the past finds us with Hollyoaks late-night spin off King of Hearts. While this didn’t give us dark or sweary adventures for Mr Brady, we did get to see him drive around and cackle brilliantly in a taxi, wear an eye mask, call the Rhys/Jacqui coupling ‘adorable’ (it was) and sniff his money. Plus it was the first time he wore the infamous leather coat (which was raffled in 2013 and raised an amazing £5,000 for the NSPCC). Besides all this, who can resist a reminder of cockney gangster Danny Houston who just a few weeks later got hammered to death by our Brendan. Enjoy!
Two episodes in one. Cockney gangster Danny Houston shows what he’s truly capable of when he reveals to Brendan that he was responsible for the death of Brendan’s ex-lover. Amazing scene in the Relish diner between Danny and Brendan. Later on Danny proves he means his threats when he makes it clear he knows Brendan’s weakness. Danny (RIP!) was a great little villain!
E4 28th December 2010 - Brendan and Foxy dump Danny’s body
A Broxy classic for today’s Friday Flashback and my own personal favourite Broxy episode. The black humour is genius! It was a nice touch to see Brendan’s mask slipping as he dealt with having murdered for the first time.
From well over 300 tweets of #BrendanMemories I made this to celebrate so many of Brendan’s most memorable and favourite moments. And what great memories they are.
So we’ve seen Brendan’s exit now, but boy are we clinging to his best bits like there is no tomorrow. Here’s our Top 10 Brendan Best Bits.
Take Part - Brendan Brady’s A - Z
With Brendan’s exit just weeks away, here’s another celebratory project for you to take part in, if you’d like. There’s already The Double B Awards to vote for, but here’s something else.
Brendan’s had an incredible time on the show and done so much, so I thought it’d be fun to make an A - Z compilation video of his life. I have to thank the great people on the DigitalSpy forums who did a similar project over 2 years ago.
You can submit as many suggestions as you like. For example:
A: Amy, Apples, Anger
B: Broxy, Bromance, Bralker, Bacon, Beard
Submit as much as you like in the comments below. No need to register - you can post as a guest. Have a quick read of other people’s suggestions too so that we get loads of options! The best will be used in the video, which’ll be posted shortly after Brendan’s exit.
Submissions by Friday 15th March please!
1. Joel faked the newspaper article of Sampson’s brother Casper, yes. I’m not sure what you mean about the drug dealing money! But he heard all the plans about the heist. Joel wants ownership of the whole club and so tried to scare Brendan and his family (the bullet, the dead rose, the obituary, the bin). I believe Joel’s ultimate goal was for Brendan to leave Hollyoaks entirely and give him the club (hence why he tried to make Sampson look more of a threat) because he wouldn’t have wanted to keep it. He also wanted to be part of the heist so he’d have money to buy Joel out. I am not entirely sure - someone might be able to clarify it better than me!
2. Well Jay was back filming the other day - not sure if it’s pre or post Later he’s filming for because they film out of order, so we haven’t seen the last of him!
3. Okay sure. Brendan was set up by a serial killer called Silas. Brendan was on his scent and unfortunately for Brendan he had links with three of the murdered girls. Rae (one of the last victims) was Ste’s ex and also accidentally outed Brendan to his son. Brendan was seen threatening to kill her and so when Silas planted her body in the boot of Brendan’s car and the murder weapon in his bedroom, Brendan was sent to prison and not released on bail. Silas got discovered when he accidentally murdered his own daughter and keepsakes from his previous killings were found by Lynsey. He was arrested and Brendan released.
Saying all this, Brendan has actually murdered a man called Danny Houston - a gangster who killed a previous lover of Brendan’s and Brendan killed him to protect Ste, who was next on his hit list.
Stendan/Danny Houston’s murder | Mock Movie Trailer
Bored so I made this today. One of my favourite parts of Brendan’s time on the show so far, in the style of a movie trailer.
“I think at some point you’ve been in love, like really madly in love.”
“Do you know how rare love is? To love somebody, you’d do any thing for them. Whether they wanted you or not. Whether they were in your life or not. People confuse love for being needed, for needing to be needed. Pick me, want me, need me, love me. It’s pathetic.
“Were you ever in love?”
He’s a liar.
This is great! :)
Brendan Brady Anniversary Video: A Year in the Life
As it’s a year to the day Brendan arrived in Hollyoaks, I decided to make a video using every single episode he’s been in (except the only one I didn’t have from early Veronica episodes). Which means if I’ve counted correctly he’s featured in 140 episodes! I tried to include snippets that gave a flavour of the episode. I hope you enjoy!
