Hollyoaks viewers are convinced Rayne Royce (Jemma Donovan) is "still alive" and will return in the near future.

The investigation into the social media influencer's death is still ongoing as the aftermath of the shock murder in the village rolls on with a number of suspects who have a motive to bump her off. Since Rayne was killed last month, it has been unclear who was responsible.

Many residents of Hollyoaks village have been trying to desperately cover their tracks and pin the blame on one another. Recently, Peri Lomax (Ruby O'Donnell) was accused of murdering Rayne and somebody subsequently broke into her flat.

During Monday's (October 30) episode, the drama continued as a manipulated clip showed Peri "confessing" to the murder. However fans are convinced that Rayne's not really dead and that she will be back in the village very soon.

Taking to social media, one fan penned: "Got an odd feeling Rayne is still alive." Another agreed: "Thinking Rayne may be still alive. Is there a reason we didn't see the intruders face?" A third person said: "The way soaps are these days wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest." Someone else wrote: "That definitely would not surprise me."

Other fans are convinced that Rayne will return as part of a dramatic festive storyline, one wrote: "My bet is Christmas Day." a second persona agreed: "Christmas twist I think."

In the village, Peri and Rayne's boyfriend Romeo Nightingale (Owen WarneR) discussed the video that was released of Peri and Rayne when they were younger, which showed Peri bullying Rayne. Later, at the flat, the group opened a package that was supposedly ordered by Rayne before she died.

The package was full of Halloween costumes and Peri and Romeo encouraged the others to agree to throw a Halloween party in celebration of Rayne. The group threw the party but Peri donned the costume intended for Rayne.
