Stephen Mackintosh
Hollyoaks character
Portrayed by Paul Holowaty
First appearance 2 May 2005
Last appearance 18 August 2005
Profile
Occupation Student

Stephen "Macki" Mackintosh was a friend of Justin Burton. The two met when Justin was troubled and began buying marijuana off Macki. Soon Justin was forced to go to boot camp and sorted out his life. When Justin returned to town, Macki frequently distracted Jusin and wanted him to come back to his old ways. However, Justin wanted to avoid Macki and hang around with his stepbrother Ali Taylor and friend Nicole Owen. An embittered Macki made Ali's life a misery by calling him "monkey boy" and other racist taunts, and he framed Justin for a fire started in the science lab at the school. However, after finding evidence against Macki, Justin managed to get him expelled.

Both Ali and Justin thought their troubles were over, until next term as Macki returned to school and wanted revenge. The bullying got worse and both Ali and Justin were beaten up by Macki and his friends. Ali eventually had enough of the bullying and went after him with a knife that his father, Richard, had confiscated from Justin (who got the knife to defend himself against Macki). When Ali found Macki, Macki challenged him to a one-on-one fight and led him to a quiet spot; whilst Ali's back was turned, Macki picked up a brick.

Justin, who had realised the knife was missing, found Ali just in time to see Macki with the brick. He called out to Ali, who then turned around and stabbed Macki. Ali dropped the knife and Justin told him he'd sort it all out and told Ali to go home. Ali then ran out into the road and was hit by a car. Justin hid the knife in the hospital toilets. Meanwhile, both Macki and Ali died of their injuries. A few days later, Justin went back for the knife but the police had already found it and were waiting for Justin to show up. Justin was then arrested for Macki's murder but was later found not guilty.

Charles Hayton was the father of Becca and Nancy Hayton. Charles and his wife Margaret were wealthy and seen as snobbish by Jake and his family. When Charles first met Jake, he was in garden clothes, and Jake, assuming he was the gardener, proceeded to tell him all about how humourless and stuck up Charles was. Frankie, Craig, and Steph dropped in for an unplanned visit, and a drunk Frankie told the Haytons all about Jake's affair and his giving a Sexually Transmitted Infection to Becca. The families also clashed over wedding preparations and cost. In spite of this turmoil, Charles and Margaret attended their daughter's wedding and wished her well.

With an eye for the ladies, he was not ready to settle into old age. Bill was a gambler and ran a book on any subject. He lived at a nursing home and often visited his family during Christmas holidays. However, when his best friend at the home died, Bill felt lonely and wanted to move in with his family. It was left up to his grandson Josh and his maternal cousin Jamie "Fletch" Fletcher to help Bill out of the nursing home and moved him into the Ashworth's house. With much dispute between Suzanne and Neville, they decided to let Bill stay after the children received a pay off from Bill in convincing their parents to let him stay. Often Bill made a mess around the house, which left Suzanne frustrated but Bill decided to give something back to the family in exchange for letting him stay. When Neville was sacked from his job, Bill gave him his inheritance which helped Neville to buy Drive and Buy. Also, the children received their inheritance as well, which was tied up into the family business.

Christopher "Chris" Fenwick is the former head of the entertainment committee and editor of the newspaper at Hollyoaks Community College, losing his position to Lee Hunter in an election. Chris pretended not to care about losing and asked if he could be Lee's vice president.

Little did Lee know that Chris was manipulating him into spending more money than what was in the college funds. Lee's friend David "Bombhead" Burke found out what Chris was doing but when he tried to tell Lee, Lee wouldn't believe him.

Chris then told Lee about the missing money and blamed Bombhead, which caused Lee and Bombhead to have a massive falling out. Chris then conspired with Freddy Watson, who set fire to the HCC's media lab for an animal rights demonstration and tried to pin the fire on Lee. But Lee's friend and Freddy's girlfriend Zara Morgan told people what had really happened and the truth finally came out. Lee punched Chris saying, "This is for Bombhead".

Duration 2005, 2006, 2007
First appearance 2005
Last appearance October 2007

Wayne Tunnicliffe first appeared as one of Ste Hay's friends. Ste was interested in Amy Barnes, while Wayne dated Michaela McQueen. Wayne was only interested in her because she was "easy" and after a few months he dumped her via text message.

Wayne and Ste befriended Josh Ashworth and his cousin Fletch to get close to Josh's sister Hannah Ashworth (they gave up because Hannah was always out with friends). A nastier moment arrived when Ste and Wayne began bullying Nicole Owen after her brother Sam blew up the Dog in the Pond. They eventually pretended to care about her, taking her to the woods, getting her drunk, and planning to rape her. She threw herself on the ground, sobbing and telling them to get on with it, and they left her alone.

Ste was sent to a juvenile detention facility for his part in a joyride which sent Amy to hospital. Wayne was next seen in spring 2007, hanging out with Sonny Valentine. Wayne soon discovered that his ex, Michaela, fancied Sonny so he mentioned it to Sonny, not knowing that he and Michaela were secretly going out. Wayne made fun of Michaela to Sonny behind her back and Sonny went along with it to keep their relationship a secret, but when Wayne went too far insulting Michaela, Sonny stood up to him and told him that he and Michaela were dating. Wayne also taunted her about her gay brother, John Paul McQueen, only for John Paul to grab him and threaten him into leaving Michaela alone.

Wayne began selling his little brother's ADD medication at school. Nancy Hayton, who needed pills to cope with her hectic life, began buying them. When Wayne ran out of medication, she lost her temper. Wayne promised her he would get more and he tried to ask Nancy out. Wayne got cinema tickets but Nancy ripped them up, enraged that Wayne would not get the drugs in time for her next exams.

Wayne was last seen at a house party thrown by Amy and Michaela. Wayne stole food and CDs and when Amy caught him in baby Leah's room, a drunk Wayne grabbed Leah as a hostage. Wayne's former mate Ste grabbed the baby and punched Wayne before throwing all the partygoers out of the house.
