If you've tuned into Hollyoaks and thought: 'What the chuffers is going on here?' Well, too many turkey sandwiches must turn you mental, so we'll forgive you for missing an episode or two of Hollyoaks.
You can catch up with all the Hollyoaks action on 4OD here
If you're short on time, or just plain lazy, here's our Oaks Xmas and New Year in a nutshell. And remember, lay off the turkey sarnies...
#GiveDougaHug: Ghost of Christmas past
Poor Doug was well on his way to the lousiest Christmas ever - so lousy that he took a deathly plunge into the Mersey sea. But thankfully there was an angel on the lookout, by the name of Stephanie Cunningham/De La Dean (who, strangely, Doug had never even met in real life.)
But heavenly Steph worked her do-gooder deeds and made Doug realise all the love and happiness he had brought to the Village - as well as helping him to finally let go of his murdered ex-girlfriend Jenny. Confused? Well, it was a bit of a head twister that's for sure. You can watch Doug's emotional roller-coaster on 4OD here.

Merciless: Bye bye Bobby
Oh Mercy, Mercy, Mercy. We know Christmas is meant to be a time for giving, but are you sure you're not going to regret this one?
When she eventually got the message that Riley wasn't going to give her and baby 'Bobbeh' a second chance she pulled a proper shocker - and gave up Bobby to Riley, who packed up his football boots and left for Leeds with Seth.
W-heresa: Over and out
All good things come to an end. And in Soap land this usually happens at Christmas time, for what could be better than tears and turkey?
Theresa called it a day with Will - but let's face it, we all saw it coming. The rocky relationship had been in trouble ever since Will's new student life didn't have any room for Theresa in it, never mind Kathleen-Angel.
You can watch the final days of Will and Theresa here on 4OD.
Jodie and Texas: Les be friends
What more could you want from NYE when you've got some shocker girl-on-girl kissage? After Jodie overheard Dodger and Doug competing for her attention it was an eve of fun and games for the new girl in the Village.
Who did she choose when it came to the crunch? Well neither. Texas was the one for her...so it was lip-lock o'clock in Chez Chez.
Catch up with all the NYE action here on 4OD.
Barn-gate: Cut off without a penny
Poor Barney. When the Freshers went north to celebrate Hogmany at Barney's posh pad it was pretty clear that when it comes to family love, Barn's rents are in low supply.
Barney's parents tried to force him into leaving HCC, but Ol' Barn door stood up for himself (and his trusty steeds) and told them to stuff it. Hurrah!
But forget the horrible, undermining parents. We did get to meet an absolute legend, by the name of Niles the butler. WE LOVE YOU NILES!
Watch the revolution of Barney here on 4OD.
Daytona Lights: Take off
Daytona Lights have had ups and downs aplenty. When Louis' amp blew in front of the suspected A+R guy it looked like game-over for the band. But as luck would have it, Michaela's recording of the gig was picked up by the real A+R guy who loved the band's music.
It was a toughie, but the boys chose to turn their backs on the Village on the quest for stardom in the big smoke. Sam was faced with the difficult choice of leaving his true love Michaela, but with a few words of encouragement he hopped into the musical ice-cream van and sped off into the night.
Stendan: Bad Brendo's back
The TASH is BACK. And it looks like the power's gone to his head now Warren's behind bars. Double B left Mitzeee penniless and alone, despite her helping him to get Warren banged up and putting her own life on the line.
Brendan's menacing message was loud and clear, he isn't taking any prisoners. FULL STOP.
After treating Ste like the club's dogsbody and then firing him, Brendan served the ultimate icing on the cake. A sexy smooch with another man, right in front of his face. Ouch. It looks like the #Stendan madness is back guys. Get ready...
