‘Hollyoaks' Spoiler: Why Did Freddie Roscoe Kill Fraser Black? Actor Charlie Clapham Reveals His Character's Motives

‘Hollyoaks’ star Charlie Clapham has spoken out following the revelation that his character Freddie Roscoe killed Fraser Black.

Fraser was murdered back in April and in Monday night’s channel 4 episode, his killer’s identity was finally revealed.

Now, Charlie - who plays the murderous Freddie - has explained why his character decided to bump off the bad guy.

"[He did it] To protect his family; to protect his mum,” Charlie explains to Digital Spy. “She nearly died because of what Fraser did."

However, rather than taking responsibility for his actions, Freddie is planning to frame his brother Joe for murder - though his plan not may be successful.

"As far as setting up Joe, I think everything's going a little bit too smoothly,” Charlie admits. “I think old Fred could do with a pair of eyes in the back of his head at this time."

Joe’s partner Lindsay is currently expecting her first child, however, it’s not yet clear whether Freddie or Joe is the baby’s father.

Charlie has also promised that there will be a “few more twists” before the storyline comes to an end.

Plots including the murder of Fraser Black were considered in a recent Ofcom study, which saw ‘Hollyoaks’ named as the most violent soap on television.

It was recently announced that ‘The Kumars’ star Vincent Ebrahim is set to join the soap and will play Big Bob, a villain Trevor met during his time in prison.
