HOLLYOAKS fans were in shock tonight as the Devereaux family secret was revealed as Mitchell having a twin brother.
In tonight’s E4 episode of the soap Mitchell’s mum Martine took her homophobic dad Walter to task about his obnoxious behaviour at the party.
She told him: “You shouldn’t be filling his mind with your small-minded, bigoted nonsense.”
But instead of apologising Walter hit back at his daughter, telling her he she couldn’t judge him after “what she had done.”
Viewers didn’t have to wait long for the answer of what that was as she was seen cradling a picture of baby Mitchell – and his twin brother.
They were in shock at the reveal with one saying: “Whoooaaaaaa is Mitchell a twin?!! #hollyoaks”
Another added: “Poor martine and Mitchell! I wonder if we going see his twin someday.”
Meanwhile actor Imran Adams revealed to Digital Spy how he had known what the secret is all along.
He said: “I was told all of the family secrets during the many meetings we had during my introduction into Hollyoaks, just so I could get a sense of who Mitchell really is.
“The family twist will definitely be centred around Mitchell. It gives an insight in the logistics of his relationship with his mum and why it’s so discombobulated.

“I feel like it will only push Mitchell to the point of becoming more who he is, kicking and screaming! But it will push him there. And I’m looking forward to the audience finding out more about the Deveraux family.”
He added: “I don’t mind keeping secrets! I love keeping secrets. I think it makes life more interesting, especially when you know that once it’s revealed, people will be more shocked and surprised. So it wasn’t hard to keep them at all.”
