Harry Thompson was the son of Tessie Thompson and Tony Hutchinson. He was also the husband of Ste Hay, the boyfriend of James Nightingale and father of Isaac. He was murdered by Breda McQueen in July 2019 after she stabbed him in the stomach with a chisel.


2007-2013: Visits to Tony[]

Harry's father Tony Hutchinson got to spend a few days with Harry in October 2007, but Harry didn't get along with Tony's girlfriend, Jacqui McQueen, who resented Tony having a child since she could not have one. Jacqui asked Tony to choose between her or Harry and he chose Harry, but later changed his mind, and gave up all contact with Harry.

In March 2008, Harry began contacting Tony even though Tony asked him not to call. When Jacqui found out, she decided that since they were going to have a surrogate baby of their own, she should let Harry back into Tony's life. Harry also discover that his half-sister Grace Hutchinson died two years ago, and was devastated and never got a chance to see her. Harry came for a brief visit and formed a bond with Jacqui. Tony was so pleased he even put a photo of Harry on the wall of Il Gnosh.

He returned in March 2009, after Tony decided to start seeing him again and get his life back on track. Later in 2009, Harry arrives for Tony's wedding to Cindy Cunningham, but returns home afterwards.

In 2013, Harry shows up at Diane O'Connor's door after hearing that his dad has cancer. Tony, however, had left for the airport. Harry waits for him there and tells him off for being a terrible dad. Tony decides to take Harry with him to Spain to attend the wedding of his uncle Dominic Reilly. Harry gets arrested at the airport for having drugs with him. Tony covers for him and tells the police they are for his cancer. Harry, still angry with his dad, takes Tony's drugs money and travels to Morocco with Harriett. Later, Harry gets kidnapped and ends up being saved by Tony. Harry and Tony are on good terms before they leave Spain again to go home.

2015: Return, Dating Cleo and struggling with sexuality[]

Harry returns in 2015, right after he got kicked out of boarding school, since his father didn't pay the school bills. In an attempt to get his father to pay back, he lies his way into Diane's house and hacks her Bank account to transfer the money to his father's account. He discovers that his father had an affair with his stepsister Sinead O'Connor, by his stepmother Diane, which makes him angry with his father, but, he eventually forgives him. Harry becomes a student at Hollyoaks High and becomes friends with Cleo McQueen who he begins a relationship with, Holly Cunningham and Zack Loveday.

When Harry returns to the village in February 2015, he begins a relationship with Cleo. During his first day at Hollyoaks High, Harry befriends Cleo when he needs help. He later flirts with her and Cleo "quickly warms to him", as she feels flattered by his attentiveness. Shortly after, Harry kisses Cleo's cousin John Paul McQueen and he struggles with his sexuality. He finds out John Paul is his teacher and that he is married to Ste. John Paul promises Harry he won't tell anyone Harry is gay to which Harry claims he is not gay even though he doesn't deny having kissed other boys before John Paul. When his friend Zack Loveday mentions that John Paul has been showing extra attention to him, Harry kisses Cleo in front of their classmates to prove his interest in her. However, an angry Cleo pushes him away and says Harry has made "a mockery" of her, leaving him to make it up to her.

With Harry struggling with his sexuality, he realises that he cannot commit to the relationship and breaks up with Cleo, who is "distraught" by the development. Cleo handles Harry's rejection poorly and hopes that they can sort things out and reconcile. The couple later reunite. When Cleo gets a job at the local coffee shop, she and Harry have a playful whipped cream fight. Her stepfather Pete Buchanan sees her with Harry and reports her to Jack Osborne for unprofessional behaviour. Cleo suddenly breaks up with Harry and he becomes convinced that she is dating another man. Harry spies on Cleo, but dismisses his suspicions when she meets up with Pete.

Cleo learns that Harry tells Cleo that he was hurt when she ended their relationship and that he thinks there was more to her reason for the break up. Cleo later spots a "half-naked" Harry in the street and invites him out for a drink. During their night out, Cleo suddenly remembers that she has organised a date with her stepfather, ending her chances of reuniting with Harry for good.

2015-2016: Started relationship with Ste[]

After breaking up with Cleo, Harry started to chase after Ste. Although the attractions were mutual, Ste resisted the temptation at first, because he had already committed to Sinead, he was much older than Harry, and Harry was his best mate Tony's son. Furthermore, because of his train wreck track record, his drug addiction, criminal record, and HIV, he was afraid of ruining Harry's life. However, he finally gave in to his feelings. After some on-offs, they both committed to their relationship despite the strong disapproval of Tony.

As early as May 2015, Sinead and her cousin Scott lured Harry to meet John Paul in a gay bar in an attempt to break Ste and John Paul up, because she and Ste had a baby together and she wanted to have Ste to herself. Harry ran into Ste outside the gay bar while school bullies Aiden and Kyle passed by. Worried about people discovering his sexuality, Harry lied saying that Ste was harassing him. Aiden and Kyle then viciously attacked Ste and left him unconscious. In panic, Harry didn't stop them, but he called an ambulance afterwards. Threatened by Aiden and Kyle, Harry took the blame for the attack. His name was cleared after Zack found out the truth. Ste and Harry bonded over this incident. Harry admitted that he was not ready to come out yet, and Ste promised to support him. Later, in a dinner, when Ste fed Harry some hot sauce with a spoon, they had a brief eye contact, and apparently they had feelings for each other.

In August 2015, Ste already broke up with John Paul and was in a relationship with Sinead. However, Sinead felt uncomfortable when Ste and Scott became too close, so she decided to set Harry and Scott up together. Harry ended up locked in a toilet with Ste by Sinead who mistook Ste for Scott in a desperate attempt to keep Scott from lusting after Ste. She was unaware, however, that Harry was lusting after Ste as well. Harry and Ste talked about their sexuality, love lives, and Ste's relationship with Sinead. Harry tried to kiss Ste. With some hesitation, Ste backed away and claimed that he was with Sinead. Another day, Harry comforted Ste after Tony made insensitive comments about his HIV and his relationship with Sinead. Harry claimed that he couldn't stop thinking about Ste, then kissed him again. At first, Ste kissed him back, but then pushed him away and told him to stay away.

When Harry found out that Ste had proposed to Sinead, he angrily accused him of trapping her into a loveless marriage. Their heated argument turned into passionate kissing and they were nearly caught by Sinead. Ste told Harry that this could never happen again. Harry then attempted to comfort Ste when it was revealed that Cameron had killed Ste's biological father Danny and stepmother Sam. Later, he sent Ste a text about their relationship which Sinead read, but she didn't know whom the text was from. Doubted that Ste had an affair, Sinead pretended that she was okay if he slept with another man while in a relationship with her. Ste and Harry met in a bar. Harry suggested they went to a hotel afterwards. Ste asked Harry if he was sure, and Harry replied that he'd never been more certain about anything in his whole life. Ste agreed at first, but after he figured out that Sinead already had doubts, he called it off and went back to Sinead. Harry jealously watched them together. When the plumbing broke at the boarding house where Harry lived, he had a shower at Diane's and Ste accidentally walked in on him. Harry then decided to use the situation to his advantage by making suggestive comments about his lack of underwear while wearing a towel in order to tempt Ste. Ste told him that it would never work.

Harry wrote down how he felt about Ste in an email, but he didn't send it and he didn't put the recipient on it. The email was discovered by Tony, but he thought it was for Sinead. He told Diane and she told Ste in turn about the email. Ste realized that the email was for him and now he knew Harry's true feelings for him. Ste found Harry, they argued, and Ste admitted his feelings to Harry. He also reminded Harry of his track record, his drug addiction, criminal record, and HIV, but Harry didn't care. Ste couldn't resist his feelings anymore, and they finally slept together. Later, Ste felt guilty for cheating on Sinead, and told Harry that they couldn't do it again. This didn't last long as Ste yielded to his feelings once more and they slept together again. Harry then sent a text to Ste which Sinead read causing her to discover the affair. An outraged Sinead left the village with their daughter Hannah and shut out contact with everyone. Blaming Harry for losing Sinead and Hannah, Ste ended things with him. Later when Ste was alone at Diane's, Harry tried to convince him to give them another chance and Ste gave in again. When they made out on the couch, Diane came back. They narrowly avoided being caught by hiding behind the kitchen island and sneaking out later.

A few days later, once again they were almost caught when they argued in a toilet and Tony came in. Harry lied saying that he was taking drugs and Ste tried to stop him. Tony decided to send Harry back to the boarding school but later changed his mind. Ste was convinced that their relationship was not right and boarding school might be a good thing for all of them. Felt like Ste was trying to get rid of him, an angry Harry decided to go back to the boarding school although Tony asked him to stay. After Harry left, Ste realized that he made the wrong decision, so he went to the boarding school to bring Harry back, and they continued their secret affair.

In October 2015, Tony organized a pride event in the village. At the event, John Paul found out about Ste and Harry's affair. When they made out behind a curtain, a jealous John Paul took down the curtain and exposed their affair to the whole village. Feeling overwhelmed, Harry refused to admit he was gay and ended things with Ste. Again, this didn't last long. When Tony saw they kissed, he lashed out at Ste, claiming that he was a car crash, and ruined everyone who was in a relationship with him.

In November 2015, Harry finally decided to completely accept his sexuality, and he told Tony that he was gay and that he was in love with Ste. Meanwhile, Ste had some bad news, his HIV condition worsened, and he had to take medication for the rest of his life. Harry stuck to him when he heard the news. At Harry's 18th birthday party, he planned to declare his love for Ste to all the guests, but Ste broke up with him because he was convinced that Harry deserved a better life.

Harry later saw Cleo holding hands with Pete, and she accidentally let it slip she had been in a relationship with him for years. A furious Harry stormed to The Dog in the Pond, where Cleo's mother Reenie and Pete were having their wedding ceremony, and revealed to all the attendees that Pete was a paedophile and had been abusing Cleo.

Ste had a dinner date with John Paul in an attempt to rebuild their relationship, but it didn't go well. Harry showed up at the door afterwards. Ste realized that it was Harry who he wanted to be with. They slept together that night. The next morning, John Paul came back and found out. He let Ste believe he was ruining Harry's future. Ste ended things with Harry again, but soon regretted it. A drunken Ste tried to win Harry back by declaring his love at the school in front of Harry's classmates which ended up embarrassing Harry. Losing Harry, he returned to alcohol and drugs, which landed him in hospital. When Harry came to visit, Ste promised that he would stop and they got back together. In an effort to wreck their relationship, Tony called the police on Ste for doing drugs when Ste was actually ditching those drugs. Believing Ste had lied to him, Harry broke up with him.

On Christmas day, Harry received an offer of a football scholarship in California. He then discovered that it was Tony who had called the police. He packed his things and left, calling Tony the worst father ever and, and claiming that he was sick of Tony trying to control him. He was shocked, however, to see John Paul proposing to Ste, and ran off heartbroken. When Ste saw Harry, John Paul was just about to put a ring on his finger. Ste chased after Harry then stopped, thus the proposal was ruined. Both Ste and John Paul realized that their relationship was over and that it was Harry who Ste truly loved. Harry returned to home as he had nowhere else to go, but Ste came and claimed that he couldn't live without Harry and Harry agreed to give their relationship another go. Tony protested that it was not happening under his roof, Ste then invited Harry to live with him, to which Harry agreed. They spend Christmas together with Ste's family in The Dog.

2016-2017: Relationship with Ste tested: homelessness, Ste's drug addiction and children custody battle[]

Scheming lawyer James Nightingale and his mother Marnie planned to con Tony out of his restaurant The Hutch, so they could take over. They tried many scams, their plan was quite successful, and The Hutch was in serious trouble. Pete falsely accused Harry of assaulting him. This caused Harry to lose the opportunity to go to California, but the accommodation fee Tony had already paid was non-refundable. Financially struggling, resenting Ste for dating Harry, being further manipulated by James, Tony took desperate measures. He asked Ste to pay the money back since he was supporting Harry or sign over his rights as a partner of The Hutch. Otherwise, he would sue them for financial losses. Although Ste knew that Tony had no legal grounds to sue them, he signed over his shares because he was fed up with Tony for blaming him for everything and he no longer wanted to be partners with someone so low. Harry was furious with his father for forcing his boyfriend out of the job and claimed he would never forgive him for this.

Not much later Ste was in conflict with Cameron. In order to kick him out of the Lomax's, Cameron planted some drugs he found in the house into Rose's changing bag and the drugs were found by Diane. Everyone believed those were Ste's. When Tony asked Harry to come home, he refused because he wouldn't go anywhere without Ste. Tony tried once again to get through to Harry that Ste would always end up letting him down. Harry wouldn't listen. It turned out that the drugs were Tegan's. Tegan tried to do the right thing and confessed, but when Diane threatened to get social services involved, Ste took the rap for his sister, and was thrown out of the Lomax's. Harry was proud of him and continued to stay with him and support him. This did, however, make them homeless. When Harry was caught changing at school, he told John Paul they were currently homeless and John Paul offered them a place at the McQueen's house to stay. Harry and Ste eventually got thrown out after breaking a cherub figurines. They convinced Jack that they stopped a burglary in his store, so Jack allowed them to stay. However, Jack finally found out that they lied and kicked them out. This forced the couple to live on the streets for a few days. After they helped to find a lost toy for Grace's baby, they were invited to stay with her and Trevor for a few days, allowing Harry and Ste to work in The Loft, but eventually they were thrown out again.

Being caught by James for breaking into The Hutch, Harry begged him not to tell his dad. James offered them a deal that provided them a place to stay in exchange for their services. While Ste refused, Harry asked him if he could go easy on them because they were having a hard time. James offered them a shack to stay and Harry was happy. In the meantime, Harry was failing his classes. When James helped Ste get a job in the Dog, Harry was suspicious that he was after Ste, and James later set the record straight that he was not after Ste, but he was after Harry, and that he always got what he wanted. James schemingly set up a situation to make himself and Ste both soaked. When Harry found them half undressed, he suspected Ste had cheated on him and the two had a row. Later, James flirted with Harry and Harry assured him he wouldn't cheat on Ste. James offered him 10K for one night of pleasure and he refused. When Ste brought over his kids Leah and Lucas, as he needed to stay with them, he asked Harry to work his shift at The Dog, where James continued to flirt with him. Harry was having none of it and walked out. This caused Ste to lose his job. The next day, Ste was arrested because Cameron reported him for not paying for his lunch at The Tug Boat, and Harry ran to James for help. James got Ste out, but the fine had to be paid. Under pressure of needing money and a roof over his head, Ste decided he would go back to dealing drugs. Harry desperately tried to stop that from happening, asking Ste to wait one more day. He then texted James, and slept with him for the money. The next day, James threw the money in front of him. The money, it turned out, was not needed as Leela and Tegan had learned of Ste's situation and allowed him to come back home. Ste found the money and Harry lied saying it was from his mother. He then returned the money to James because he wanted to forget what happened.

James and Marnie continued sabotaging The Hutch. The restaurant was in a death trap. Harry came to comfort Tony, and Tony finally approved his relationship with Ste. When Tony and Diane wouldn't sell The Hutch to Marnie, James blackmailed Harry to force them to sell. Harry agreed to help set up a fake kidnapping by some loan shark to whom Tony owed money. It was successful, and Tony finally agreed to sell the restaurant to Marnie so he could pay the debt. When Harry asked James if he could give Tony and Diane their old job back, James told him he could if Harry slept with him. Harry walked away but eventually called James agreeing to it. While they talked, Harry got a different idea. He went to the police and told them he had been kidnapped, blackmailing James into giving Tony and Diane their jobs back. It seemed to work, but James offered Ste a job as well. When showing his chef skill in James' flat, Ste discovered where Harry was kidnapped, and Harry was forced to admit he was in on it. When Ste confronted James, he revealed that Harry slept with him for 10K. Being cheated on and lied to, Ste broke up with Harry. Believing that he was responsible for putting Harry in this situation and that Harry would be better off without him, he refused to take him back when Harry begged.

Devastated after breaking up with Harry, Ste became addicted to crystal meth when being seduced by Cameron. Harry was miserable as well without Ste. Tony and Diane got a job opportunity in southern France. Tony didn't want to leave if Harry was feeling this way, so he set up an opportunity to get Ste and Harry alone together to make up. When Harry asked for forgiveness again, Ste admitted that it was not Harry's problem, but his. He was not worth it, and Harry deserved better. But he couldn't fight his feelings anymore, and they finally agreed to get back together. On the day Tony and Diane planned to leave for France, Harry discovered Ste's addiction to crystal meth. He couldn't deal with it on his own, so he asked Tony for help. Tony decided to stay behind with Harry to help Ste get over his addiction while Diane went to France with the kids.

On the first day, Tony and Harry tried to help Ste overcome his addiction and they brought him to their flat. Harry tried to get him to eat. He told Ste that Tony was looking for a rehab for him. Ste told him that he should go out with his mates, but Harry told Ste he wouldn't go anywhere until he knew he was ok. Ste tried to walk out but Harry managed to stop him. Tony appeared and showed Ste some DIY work. He convinced Ste that the work would keep his mind off the drugs. He also invited Ste to live with Harry and that the work was for their room. Ste went into the bathroom to have a shower, but was actually trying to call his dealer. Tony rushed in to get his phone. Tony convinced him to get clean for his kids. Later, Ste broke the piggy bank that belonged to Tony's twins when Harry wouldn't give him the money that he stole from the Roscoe's. Tony threatened to call the police but Harry convinced him not to. Harry followed Ste outside where Ste punched him and Harry landed on the ground. Ste immediately regretted and begged him not to give up on him. They went back to the flat. Harry overheard Ste telling Tony that he wasn't that person anymore. During the night, Ste demanded the key to the door but Harry refused. Ste verbally abused Harry but Tony told him Harry was only the drugs talking. Tony reassured Ste that they were trying to help him. While Ste was asleep, Harry quizzed Tony about Ste's earlier statement. Tony explained Ste's abusive past with Amy and Harry was disgusted, but Tony told him Ste was a different person now. Harry left the house to clear his mind, then he returned home and comforted Ste throughout the night. In the morning, Tony found Ste and Harry asleep on the sofa. Ste returned the money he stole from the piggy bank. Tony promised to pay for a private rehab but Ste felt like he didn't deserve it. Harry promised Ste that he would stick with him.

The rehabilitation was successful. When Ste went to visit Amy, he attacked her new fiancé Ryan in front of Leah and Lucas due to misunderstanding. Ryan was a cop, he got a new job in Hollyoaks police station, and they moved to Hollyoaks. Ryan got along with the kids, Leah felt "normal" living with Amy and Ryan, and didn't want to see Ste. Harry was trying really hard to cheer Ste up when Ste felt his position was threatened by Ryan. When Ste opened his new business, a tanning salon, his kids didn't show up to support him. Harry convinced Amy to have the kids spend time with their dad. He also bribed Leah to be kind to Ste. Leah, however, was a tough negotiator and Harry gave in to her demands, admitting he was a push-over. Things didn't end well when Ste took the kids from school but didn't appear to remember taking them. Harry was afraid he was back on the drugs, but Ste actually had memory blackouts, causing him to become violent sometimes and later not remember, though something could come back to him over time. These blackouts were the result of his drug and alcohol abuse. In one blackout, Ste attacked Ryan after an argument. This caused Amy and Ryan to ask for full custody. Harry remained supportive of Ste and enlisted James for help. Ste, however, refused the help in the end because he and Amy had a good chat. Later on, Amy broke her promise and Ste lost his rights as a fit parent. The court gave Amy temporary full custody, and Ste could only visit the kids under supervision. Ste was really upset that his kids lived next door, but he couldn't visit them, and he had to act like a stalker, spying on his own kids.

Harry started to feel like he was always coming second to Ste's family and was reminded that he was Ste's family too. This inspired Harry to propose to Ste on New Year's Eve. The plan, however, failed when a pissed off Hunter and Prince stole the ring. The twins walked free and Harry didn't get the ring back, due to their mother Goldie blackmailing Ryan with a video proving Ryan cheated on Amy with Mercedes. When a video of Amy pushing cake into Leah's face went viral on the internet and she was called the worst mom, she and Ryan believed that Ste put it online, although in fact it was Prince. In an attempt to help Ste in his custody battle, Harry reported the video to social services. Believing it was Ste, Ryan viscously attacked Ste. When Ste reported the attack to the police, Ryan asked his uncle DS Geoff Thorpe to cover up for him. Harry felt his effort was not appreciated by Ste, while Ste felt Harry made things worse. Ste and John Paul became closer again although John Paul was in a relationship with James, feeding to Harry's insecurity, as Ste chose to seek comfort from John Paul and not from Harry. Harry learnt that Goldie was blackmailing Ryan, so he went to Goldie, threatening to put her kids behind bars by going to the top. He finally got his ring back, and he got Ryan's cheating video from Goldie as well. Harry then accidentally helped expose Ryan and Mercedes's affair by leaving his phone for Amy to find. Amy broke up with Ryan, and Ryan left for Canada. Ste could see his kids again.

Amy reminded Harry how lucky Ste was to have him, and this inspired Harry to propose to Ste. Ste reminded him of his track record, but Harry told him those didn't matter, all he knew was that when the world ended, there were gonna be just two of them still standing. Ste told him the last thing he wanted was to lose him, but he was not ready to say yes yet. Ste reassured him that he did love him, but he needed to focus on proving himself to Amy for the kids. Harry was willing to wait because Ste was worth it. Feeling neglected, Harry frequently argued with Ste and this further pushed Ste away. Harry became more insecure about their relationship as Ste spent more time with John Paul and refused to hand over the divorce paper to him because John Paul was having a hard time as Finn, his rapist, might get out of prison soon. When Ste tried to comfort John Paul, they shared a kiss. Ste had doubts about his relationship with Harry. Harry took matters into his own hands, and gave John Paul the divorce paper for him to sign. John Paul later signed the paper because he felt that James needed him and Harry needed Ste. Ste and John Paul kissed goodbye, and Ste realized how gorgeous Harry was, how much he loved Harry and he decided to stick to Harry. In March 2017, Ste and John Paul finalized their divorce. Harry decided to throw a divorce party. Both James and John Paul attended. John Paul accepted James' proposal earlier that day. James had to leave early for business. The party didn't have a good ending as Harry and Ste fought when Harry found that Ste decided to move in with Amy to help with the kids without talking to him first. Once again he felt like he was last on Ste's list, and he stormed out. Both abandoned by their lovers, Ste and John Paul ended up sleeping together. Harry soon regretted, and he called Ste to apologize, but Ste didn't pick up. The next day John Paul wanted to get back to Ste, but Ste would stick with Harry. Harry and Amy found Ste. Harry apologized and told Ste he would do anything for him. They moved in together with Amy to help with the kids. Ste called John Paul to tell him he was with Harry and that last night could never happen again, but James picked up the phone and learnt that his fiancé cheated on him. A furious James took John Paul out for a ride. When they were on a cliff, James let John Paul believe that Ste was in the boot and pushed the car off the cliff. A frightened John Paul later found that Ste wasn't in the boot. He went to look for Ste and wanted to convince him to resume their relationship, only to find out that Ste was proposing to Harry. John Paul later left Hollyoaks for Singapore. Ste realized that he made a massive mistake by not originally accepting Harry's proposal, so he proposed to Harry and promised he would spend the rest of his life making Harry happy. Harry joyously accepted, and they kissed passionately.

2017-2018: Relationship with Ste further tested: Amy's murder[]

Amy was murdered on her wedding night. It was later revealed that the real murderer was his newlywed husband Ryan. He killed her because she found out he was gay. But, earlier that night, Harry came to stop her from taking the kids away, and they had an argument. He accidentally pushed her and caused her to hit her head, afterwards he left in panic, thinking she would be ok. When he heard that she was dead, he believed he killed her. But, Ste was the major suspect from the beginning.

In March 2017, Ryan came back from Canada to try to work things out with Amy. He convinced Ste that he would be a good stepfather to the kids, so Ste helped him to persuade Amy to resume their relationship. Before their wedding, Ryan revealed to Amy that he had a job opportunity in America, and that they could leave right after the wedding. Amy didn't agree because she didn't want to take the kids away from Ste. At their wedding reception, Harry found out that Ste had cheated on him with John Paul, he confronted Ste, and insulted his kids in anger. Ste wouldn't tolerate him insulting his kids, pushed him, and splashed wine on Amy's dress. Amy decided to leave for America with Ryan because she was angry with Ste for ruining her wedding. Ste learnt from Leah that they would go abroad. In a desperate attempt to stop Amy from taking the kids away, he called an emergency court hearing. He met with Harry to try to work things out, but he was too focused on the kids to discuss things with Harry and he left early. Harry stayed with James for a while. They talked and shared a kiss. Harry learnt that John Paul wanted to get back with Ste but Ste turned him down for Harry, so he decided to forgive Ste. Meanwhile, at the court hearing, Amy was granted the rights to leave with the kids and they would leave the next day. In Amy's flat, Ste read stories to the kids for the last time and said goodbye to them. Later, Ste argued with Amy and cut his hand, but then he had a blackout and had no memories about the following few hours. Back home, Harry told Ste that he still wanted to be with him and Ste promised that he would never cheat on him again. Then Tony broke the news that Amy had been murdered. When the police came, Harry claimed that he and Ste had been staying together all night, but later the police found out that he gave a false alibi for Ste, and Ste got arrested for Amy's murder. Harry ran to James, and asked him to be Ste's lawyer. James refused at first, but then agreed.

DS Armstrong, knowing Ste had blackouts and his memories were unreliable, planted false memories into his head. Ste, believing he remembered what happened, confessed the killing. Harry was heartbroken and determined to prove Ste's innocence. He kept putting pressure on James to look into things, unaware that James was deliberately trying to sabotage the case to take revenge on Ste for sleeping with John Paul, as well as to keep him away from Harry. On the night the murder happened, James saw Harry threw away a pair of trainers with blood on them, so he believed Harry was the killer from the beginning. Later, he collaborated with Ryan to frame Ste. Ste asked Harry to attend Amy's funeral, and to say sorry to Amy's parents Mike and Kathy on behalf of him, but Kathy forbade Harry to attend the funeral. Later, Harry and Tony went to the wake, and apologized for Ste. Kathy called Ste a murderer and was heard by Leah and Lucas. Harry put all his energy and time into Ste's case and his college work was falling behind. Seeing Harry put his life on hold for Ste, Tony asked Ste to do the right thing and let him go. Not wanting Harry to destroy his life, Ste broke up with him. Ste planned to plead guilty. Harry tried to convince him to plead not guilty, but Ste refused to see him. In court, when Ste was about to plead guilty, Harry claimed that Tony had a gun and interrupted the hearing. Harry then asked James to arrange a meeting with Ste. He convinced Ste that his memories were unreliable. Ste once claimed that he called Tony that night, but actually he called his dealer. Harry asked him to plead not guilty if he had any doubts about his memories. Ste later pleaded not guilty and they got back together. Tony promised to help Harry to fight for Ste. Harry and Tony made many posters to find witnesses for that night. They gave these posters to James, but James ditched them to the bin. James also ignored the request from Mercedes to check the ringtone she heard from Amy's flat around the time the murder happened.

In June 2017, Ste was getting harassed by a fellow inmate. In an attempt to help Ste, Harry reported it to the authorities, which made it worse. Ste was beaten up and landed in hospital. Harry and Tony visited him. Later Ste escaped after having a blackout and ended up at The Hutch where Harry found him. Harry convinced him that they should go on the run together, but Tony put a stop to their plan by calling the police. The police took Ste away. Harry genuinely believed he had no future without Ste. Later, Harry wanted to visit Ste but Ste refused to see him under any circumstances. Believing that Tony was behind this, Harry decided to move out. With everything that had been happening in the household, the family had been missing clues about Scott's mental health. Harry and Tony found Scott in the bathroom after an attempted suicide. Harry was angry when Scott said he did it for the attention, but he soon learnt that this was a lie and Scott really wanted to die. Harry then decided to stay home because he learnt that Ste refusing to see him had nothing to do with Tony and he thought the family should stick together in such circumstances.

When the cops found the trainers which were supposed to belong to Ste, James confirmed to Harry that Ste was most likely going down for this murder. Harry, knowing Ste's innocence, started to drink and nearly found himself getting beaten by Mac. James rescued him and they talked. Harry told him that he had no life, no future, he was nothing without Ste despite James pointing out Harry's qualities. When DS Armstrong was exposed as a stalker who stalked many women, Ryan found Amy's photos taken by Armstrong which proved that he had been stalking Amy and made him a suspect for Amy's murder. James and Ryan decided to burn these photos so that Ste could be convicted.

Ste's trial date was set. Trying to help Harry, Tony visited Ste in jail, and he found out that Ste hadn't been taking his HIV meds because the prison didn't really tolerate HIV. When Harry learnt this, in a last attempt to stop Ste from giving up and to prove to Ste how much he loved him and believed in him, Harry decided to plan their wedding. Lucas told Tegan that he heard an argument after Ste left that night when Amy was murdered, but James and Ryan convinced Tegan that this wouldn't help in court. In August 2017, Harry asked Tony to go visit Ste and tell him about the wedding. Tony proposed to Ste on behalf of Harry. Ste told Tony that he was pleading guilty based on James' advice. The next day Ste ended up in the hospital with an infection in his chest due to not taking his HIV meds. When Tony visited him, he told Tony that he would change his plea to not guilty. He left Harry a message on Tony's phone. He thanked Harry for standing by him, and believing in him when he didn't believe in himself. He confessed his love to Harry, and asked Harry to visit him the next day. Meanwhile, James had taken his blood to inject it onto the trainers in another attempt to frame him. The next day Harry visited Ste. He proposed again and Ste said yes, and they shared a kiss when unnoticed by the guards.

When Tegan visited Ste, he asked her to hand over a letter to Ryan in which he asked him to take care of the kids. He also asked her and Leela to help Harry move on, and to not wait for him in case he was found guilty. In the past few months, Ryan was getting closer to Tegan. He confessed to her the scheme that he and James were trying to frame Ste.

In September 2017, Ste's trial started. After learning that James was indeed setting him up, Ste confronted him. When Ste threatened to report him, James informed Ste that Harry was the real killer. Ste decided to step up and take the blame. In the trial, Harry was confused that James was apparently sabotaging the case, and Ste was playing along with his game to send himself down. Harry shouted at Ste, asking him to do something. Fearing Harry would ruin their plan, Ste asked James to arrange a meeting with Harry to explain himself. When Ste confronted him, Harry confessed. At that night, he met Ste outside, and he wanted to sort things out, but Ste was too focused on his kids, and asked him to get away. Harry then went to Amy's flat to try to stop her from taking the kids away. When they argued, he accidentally shoved her, causing her to hit her head. He left in panic, thinking she would be ok. When he heard about Amy's death, he realized he killed her. He also told Ste that it was always the plan that if Ste was found guilty, he would come clean. But, Ste was willing to spend his life in prison to protect Harry because he loved him, and he partially blamed himself for Amy's death and putting Harry in this situation. He told Harry that he didn't deserve prison, prison would break him, and that he could still live the life he had before he met Ste, before Ste destroyed his life, and before everything went wrong. But, Harry wouldn't allow Ste to do that, and he prepared to confess. James prevented this from happening by promising to get both of them off the hook and to cast doubt on someone else. In the end, James, with the approval of Harry, chose DS Armstrong, who had stalked and attacked women but avoided prison because of some loopholes. The strategy was successful, and Ste was found not guilty, but he was shot by Kathy moments after, when he and Harry kissed and hugged in celebration.

Ste was lucky that the bullet missed all the important organs. He didn't blame Harry for leaving him in prison for months, he didn't blame Harry for almost getting him killed either, but when he saw the kids, he realized that he couldn't have Harry around them while knowing he killed their mother. Therefore, he ended his relationship with Harry. Tony was furious that Ste dumped Harry. When he berated him, Ste claimed that he was seeing someone else. Harry tried to change his mind, but Ste told him that he did love him but he couldn't be with him. Harry's guilt was starting to weigh him down and he desperately wanted to tell his father but James reminded him to keep it to himself, because a lot was at stake. Amy's grave would be exhumed to find more evidence. Ste ran to Harry to tell him the news. Harry was frightened. Ste reassured him that they wouldn't find anything. Harry claimed that he couldn't deal with it without Ste. Ste told him not to give up after everything they did to keep him out of prison. Ste admitted he would always care about him. Their conversation became passionate, and they kissed, but Ste stopped. Harry told Ste that he would never stop loving Ste, after everything Ste sacrificed for him, it only made sense if they stayed together. Ste claimed that when he saw Harry, he couldn't stop thinking about Amy, and felt like he did kill Amy. Tony overheard their conversation, and he believed that Ste was confessing Amy's murder. When he threatened to call the police, Harry came clean that it was he who killed Amy. Unable to cope with his son being a murderer, Tony kicked Harry out of the house.

A few days later, after he learnt that Tony was looking for him, Harry came back, believing his father had forgiven him, but this appeared not to be the case. Harry lied that he was staying with a mate and told his dad not to contact him again. Harry ended up back on the streets. Feeling guilty, Harry spent the next few weeks selling himself for money as a way to punish himself until he got caught by Ryan. Ryan told him it was a sting operation while he was actually seeking for a rent boy for sex himself. When James saw Harry at the police station Harry told James about the soliciting and possibly getting charged. James found out Ryan was lying and discovered Ryan was gay. He used this to blackmail Ryan into dropping the charges. James was trying to convince Harry once again that he was not a bad person and that he deserved a second chance. Harry told James how he felt about everything that had happened and left. Zack offered him a place to stay but Harry soon blew up in his face and left. When Harry got arrested the police took his DNA which was also found on Amy's body, and before the day was over the police took Harry in for questioning. Afterwards Harry rushed to James for help, which James provided in the form of an alibi. He told DS Thorpe that Harry was his lover and that they were together the night Amy was murdered. He later told Harry not to worry. Harry was relieved and wanted to share the news with his father, whom he believed was on his side now. Tony wasn't pleased, because he wanted Harry to take responsibility and face justice. Devastated, Harry left and went back to soliciting.

Harry returned a few days before Christmas, after breaking into James' flat because he had nowhere else to go. He was beaten up after a client attacked him. James didn't want him back on the streets where he could possibly get hurt even more. At this time, Tony already told Diane about Harry because he couldn't handle it himself, and she told Ryan, but Ryan agreed to let Harry be, after being blackmailed by James. Harry missed his family terribly and he believed his father hated him. James told him that Tony loved him and was fighting for him and that Harry was lucky. James opens up about Mac to him and Harry enjoyed seeing this side of James. He thanked James when he told him he would always look out for him. They kissed and they ended up sleeping together. In the morning Harry asked for money, hurting James' feelings. Harry deflected James' statement that last night was different, by stating that it was fun, but fun wasn't for free. James made it known that he wanted Harry to stay with him because he had feelings for him. Harry told him that he didn't think about James in that way. James asked him if he was willing to give them a chance to see if Harry could feel something more for him. Harry turned him down, as he didn't want to take advantage of James' feelings for him. Harry ran into Ste and hoped they can start over again. Ste reassured him that he would always care about him, and he still loved him, but he couldn't be with him because of what happened to Amy. Harry made it very clear to James that he was planning to go back to selling himself, and James made him an offer: Harry could stay with him and he would find Harry more trustworthy clients. James offered this to keep Harry safe and keep him close. Harry accepted the offer.

Harry stayed with James for the next few days and continued to sleep with men that James found for him. When James needed a date to a business event, Harry offered to come along. A client of James took an interest in Harry and made an offer to James: if he could spend time with Harry, James would have the deal. James agreed. Harry took him to the office for a quickie. However, he got caught in the act by Tony. Harry confessed the next day that he has been sleeping with men for money. Tony wanted Harry to come back home, so he could help him. Harry admitted to Tony and Diana that selling himself was a way of punishing himself for what he did to Amy and that he hated himself and would do anything to make things right. Not wanting Harry to leave, James manipulated Diane to refuse Harry to move back home, but Diane went further, and she suggested Harry to turn himself in. Furious with James, Harry demanded an explanation. He was taken aback when James told him that he loved him and that he had risked everything for him and stayed by his side. Harry told James that James didn't love him, and that he didn't love anyone. He wanted to be as far away from James as possible and back home with family. When James reminded him once again of what he had done for him knowing he was the killer, Sami overheard. Sami reported Harry to the police. Tony texted Harry not to come home because the police were looking for him and Harry fled to James. Harry was afraid that they were going to arrest him and that he would crack under the pressure. Harry begged James to help him because he didn't want to go to jail. When James reminded him of their previous conversation, Harry begged him once more that if James really loved him, he would help him. When the police showed up Harry hid and James lied about not having seen him. Harry thanked James and tried to apologize for the way he responded to his love confession earlier, but James didn't want his apology. James told Harry the only option left for him to stay out of jail was to flee the country. When Ste found out that the police were looking for Harry he rushed to James'. Ste and Harry embraced but James was quick to put an end to any further talk between them. James told them that Harry had to leave the country and that Harry needed to trust him with his upcoming plan. James, Ste and Tony worked together to help Harry escape. The plan was put in motion. While James and Ste led the police away, Harry found himself in the boot of Tony's car riding out of town for a visit to Diane's family. When they were inside the tunnel, Diane heard a noise and suspected Harry was in the boot, and she stopped the car and got out. When she saw Harry was indeed in the boot, they argued, threatening to call the police. Then she took a few steps back, and she got hit by the Maaliks' car. Lying on the ground, Diane changed her mind and urged Harry to run. However, Harry decided to go back to take responsibility and face justice because too many people had been hurt because of him. When Ste saw Harry got out of the ambulance, they hugged. Harry entered the hospital, and Ste followed. Ste was ready to forgive him for what he did to Amy and start over again, but James stopped him and convinced him that he would never get over the fact that Harry killed the mother of his children. When Harry saw James he was told Ste had left. James wanted to take Harry away from the hospital before it was too late, but Harry wanted to stay because Diane wasn't out of the woods yet. James tried to get Harry to change his mind, promising him that he would keep him updated and that he would get revenge on Sami for ratting them out. Tony arrived with good news but the police arrived as well. James tried one more time to get Harry to leave with him through a different exit but Harry refused. He was tired of people getting hurt because of his lies and he was going to hand himself in. He hugged Tony and walked towards the police. Outside of the hospital, Harry confessed to killing Amy.

Harry struggled with being in jail. Zack and Holly dropped by for a visit. Holly was quickly done when Harry only talked about how hard it was for him to be in jail. Zack dropped by one last time before agreeing with Holly that Harry was only focused on himself and didn't seem to care about what he had done. James promised that if he pleaded not guilty he would get Harry out of here. Tony was having none of it. Harry agreed to plead not guilty and told James that if he was released maybe the two of them could start a relationship together. When Sami learnt of this he told Tony and Ste who thought this was not a good idea. They visited Harry and persuaded him into pleading guilty for a more lenient sentence. Harry eventually did so and faced twenty years of prison time. When Tony came to visit, Harry accidentally let it slip James was renting him out for the duration he was staying with him. A furious Tony confronted James, which was overheard by Sami, and he reported James to the police. When Sami told Harry that James wanted him to admit to the renting allegation, Harry questioned this, but Sami insisted it was what James wanted. Harry told Sami he would do it, but later called James to apologize for going against his wishes as he denied the allegation. James was confused because he never asked Harry to do this and realized Sami had been setting him up and been playing a game with them for a while now.

In the meantime, trying to get over Harry, Ste was getting closer to Ryan, although Ryan was dating Tegan. Tegan found out that Ryan was the real murderer. Ryan tried to kill her and made it seem like an accident. She survived but was put into coma. Ste and Ryan started a relationship secretly, but they were exposed eventually. Ryan, feeling unsafe, decided to move to Brazil and convinced Ste to go with him. When Tegan woke up, Ryan was exposed as the real killer. Ste held him captive, and tortured him to get him to confess, but Ryan escaped and nearly killed Ste before being caught by the police. James visited Harry to tell him the news. Harry wanted to go back to Ste, but James told Harry that Ste was in love with Ryan and was planning to move abroad with him. Harry agreed to move in with James when he made the suggestion. He told his father that he wasn't coming home, but was going to live with James. Before the truth came out, James was ready to start a relationship with Kyle, but now things had changed so he threw Kyle out of his house.

When Harry saw Ste going back to drugs, he tried to talk him out of it. Ste was surprised that Harry didn't hate him after he knew his relationship with Ryan. Harry told him that he tried, but he couldn't. The two shared an emotional kiss and Harry texted James to tell him he couldn't move in with him anymore. James later reconciled with Kyle. Ste and Harry went home. They told Leah and Lucas the truth together and promised that they would protect them. Then Ste suggested that kiss didn't meaning anything and they'd better be friends, to which Harry reluctantly agreed. Harry's sister Dee Dee was found seriously ill. When Ste comforted Harry, Harry confessed that he loved him and he would never stop, since they meant to be together, there was no point to waste next few months to say sorry to each other to rebuild the trust, then they kissed again. Harry organized a camping trip with the kids to cheer Ste up. He planned to propose to Ste, but Ste was not in the mood because he was still traumatized after things with Ryan. The trip was completely ruined when Ryan appeared again after he escaped from prison. He tried to reconnect with Ste but the police were coming and he escaped. Harry followed him and they started a fight. Ryan fell into a river and Harry left him to die. When Ste found out that Harry let Ryan drown, he was angry with him because he felt that Harry was not that man he loved anymore. Harry tried to persuade him to give their relationship another chance. He reminded Ste of everything they had gone through. No matter what life had thrown them, they always found their way back to each other. He never gave up on Ste even once. Eventually, Ste was convinced that Harry hadn't changed at all, he was still that man he fell in love with, they did belong together, and he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Harry. He asked Harry to propose again and accepted it.

2018: Relationship with Ste in doubt, affair with James, married to Ste[]

Although they were back together, Harry started to feel that Ste thought he was still that 17-year-old, innocent Harry, but he had changed and he was not innocent anymore. He felt that he couldn't be open with Ste. In the meantime, he thought that James saw the real Harry and he became closer to James. Gradually, he was torn between Ste and James.

Leah's biological father Billy showed up and demanded custody rights unless Ste paid him. Ste agreed and Harry volunteered to meet Billy on behalf of Ste. Instead of paying Billy, Harry punched him and ordered him to go away. This made things worse. Harry asked James for help, and James tricked Billy into giving up his rights by demanding years of child support owed by him. To thank James, Harry offered to sleep with him but James turned him down because James was in a relationship with Kyle.

Ste opened a new business, a food truck. Financially struggling, and still feeling guilty for what happened to Amy, Harry went back to soliciting. When he was caught by the police, James helped him. After seeing texts on Harry's phone, Ste doubted that he had an affair with James, but eventually he chose to believe in Harry.

Sami, with the help of Kyle, framed James for the murder of Kyle while he was actually alive and hidden. Harry tried to console him and help to prove his innocence. Ste didn't believe James' innocence, and didn't want Harry to be involved with him, so he demanded Harry to choose between James and him. Harry chose Ste and didn't see James again. James later was sent to prison.

Unable to handle Dee Dee's illness, Tony abandoned the family and disappeared. Ste and Harry tried to find him. Diane gave up on him. Later, Harry also gave up, but Ste didn't give up. He continued looking for Tony even after Harry protested. Meanwhile, Ste also tried to help taking care of Dee Dee and Ant.

When one of Harry's clients Christopher showed up and Harry nearly got caught, Ste and Harry fought about how they no longer talked. Harry then went to the prison to visit James. They embraced. Harry explained that James was the only one in the world he felt he could talk to, he also told James that he'd been selling himself again and that he never stopped doing it. James wondered how Harry felt about continuously cheating on Ste with all these men, and Harry said he felt more guilty about being here with him, because Ste hated him. When the time was up James told Harry to stop worrying about the darkness inside of him and to enjoy being Harry Thompson with all his glorious flaws. Harry wanted to see James again and when James asked if he was willing to risk everything with Ste, Harry told him he was. Harry arrived back home and happily kissed Ste, telling him he wanted things to work between them. He told Ste that he found a counsellor and that things were going to be better from then on. Ste was happy Harry was in a good mood and told him to continue to do so. Ste was trying to get the contract for his food truck at Hollyoaks High. When Leah told them they had to go shopping to find the right clothes, Harry picked going to see James that day instead. Ste allowed him because he'd noticed how much it had helped Harry to talk to his counsellor. Harry visited James a second time but wasn't in the mood for small talk. Harry was frustrated that James was in jail and he wanted to help him. James admitted that he had never felt more alone and Harry admitted he felt very alone as well. Harry wished he could talk to James more often instead of having to wait for a visitation order. On his way back home he spotted Milo's advert and asked Milo to create a mini phone in a chocolate bar. Leah found the visitation order in Harry's bag and confronted him about it. Harry told her he was not cheating on Ste. Leah hoped his 'hunky therapist' wasn't getting any ideas. The next time Harry visited James, he gave James the chocolate bar for him to eat during countdown. James talked about the class he was taking and Harry talked about the hatch. When James asked what Harry wanted, Harry lashed out and said he didn't know what he wanted: Ste, James or a random man as Harry was still renting himself out. James explained to Harry that he cared. Harry explained that when he was with James it was the only place where he felt like he could be himself and that everywhere else he was wearing a mask. Harry wished he didn't have to go and that he couldn't wait for the visitation order. James told Harry not to waste his time on him, because he had his whole life ahead of him. Harry told James he would be in touch before then. Harry told Ste his counsellor was very clever, gave good advice and was just very easy to talk to. When James opened the chocolate bar he discovered the tiny phone inside of it. He called Harry with it and they played countdown together. Leah overheard and called back for James to pick. Leah confronted Harry, but Harry was in no mood to have to explain himself to her. Harry told her to keep quiet because Ste was stressed enough, but Leah told the police. During an important presentation to Sally to land the contract for Ste's food truck at Hollyoaks High, Harry got arrested for smuggling in the phone, and Ste lost the contract. Ste went to visit James and told him to stop seeing Harry, because he was toxic to Harry. When Harry got released, Ste was incredibly angry with Harry, pointing out that while Ste was in jail Harry left him to rot, but that Harry went running to James now that he was in jail. Harry tried to explain that James was just a friend and needed someone to talk to, but Ste didn't really believe him. Harry admitted that was a two way thing and Ste wanted to know why Harry went to James to talk and not to him. Harry didn't get a chance to explain himself further as Ste put him for an ultimatum, James or Ste. Harry didn't answer. His Man-Finder app found him a client and he walked out. When he arrived at the site of his hook up, he spotted Kyle. Kyle fled the scene, however. He headed to jail and tried to tell the police he saw Kyle, but the police didn't believe him. He checked his app but Kyle's account had been deleted. When he got home Ste was moving out, because he didn't understand what was going on with Harry anymore. Harry tried to tell Ste he found Kyle, but didn't get a chance. Ste accused Harry of being obsessed with James and Harry promised he and James would be over but he needed to talk to James first. Harry didn't get a chance to talk to James, as James stood him up. He received a note from James saying that not to contact him anymore, otherwise he would tell everyone that Harry was selling himself. Upset with James, he kept the news of Kyle's appearance to himself. He tried to win over Ste, telling him that he knew what he wanted now and that it was Ste. Harry went to see Sally and convinced her to give Ste the contract. Ste forgave him and they stay together. Harry, however, went back to his Man-Finder app the same day.

Tony was still missing. Harry had no interest in finding his dad, but Ste thought they should look for him. Harry was grateful Ste was putting in the effort. Harry was getting an offer from Christopher to meet up. Ste reminded him that Leah had a performance but Harry came up with an excuse to meet Christopher. Christopher was not amused when Harry complained about his life and told him he was paying him for sex with a smile. Harry had enough and told him he was done with this and that he had a man at home that loved him. He went to find Ste and they talked about the wedding. Ellie Nightingale overheard their conversation and persuaded them to have the party in The Dog. She got a phone call later and was told that James got beaten up and was now in Hospital. Harry wanted to know if James was okay, but Ste wanted him to promise that whatever was going on with James, he was keeping out of it. The next day, Harry told Ellie that they needed to see James. Harry couldn't see James by himself because he was not a relative, so he needed Ellie to come with him. Ellie told Harry she cut James out of her life and suggested Harry did the same. Harry wasn't paying attention when Ellie brought up the wedding plan and Sami informed Ste that Harry was too preoccupied with James to think about their wedding. When Sami told Ellie that she couldn't see James, Ellie got offended and reminded him he couldn't tell her what to do and that she would go see James and that Harry could join her. James was surprised to see Harry and Ellie. Ellie had a hard time seeing James and left pretty quickly. James was angry that Harry brought her here, but Harry explained that he was worried about him and wanted to see him. He wanted to know why James stopped him from seeing him in jail. James told him about the visit from Ste. Harry told James he didn't care what Ste told him and that he could help James. he tried to tell James he saw Kyle, but James had him throw out of the room before he got the chance. When Harry got home Ste was angry with him, but he told Ste that James was just a friend and that he was innocent. When Ste didn't believe him, he told Ste that he saw Kyle because the latter was going to pay him for sex. Harry was then forced to explain to Ste that he had been renting himself out. Ste was furious and told him the wedding was off. Harry tried to convince Ste that they needed to stay together and tried to explain why he kept renting himself out. He explained it as an addiction, which Ste didn't believe. Harry then confessed that he was selling himself to punish him for what he had done to Amy. Harry wanted to be a good person but could only be a good person when he was with Ste. Ste pointed out that a good person wouldn't have had left James to rot in jail when he knew Kyle was out there, and decided they were going to find Kyle. They tried to convince DS Cassidy that Kyle was alive but she didn't believe them, pointing out Harry was not to be trusted when it came to James. They found Kyle through the Man-Finder app and tricked him to meet up with them. When they met Kyle they took him to the Dog, where Sami and Ellie were announcing their plans to travel the world. The truth was then revealed that Sami had been setting James up for murder to get revenge on James, who years ago framed his father for embezzlement and caused him to commit suicide. The next day, Harry tried to fix things with Ste, but Ste was not interested and told him to go find James. Harry told Ste he wanted nothing to do with James, but Ste wouldn't listen. When Harry came home ready to pack his bag, Ste surprised him with a living room decorated with the pride theme. After a chat with Tegan, Ste had decided to forgive Harry because he was given a lot of second chances and Harry should get one more too. Harry told Ste he wanted to be someone Ste could be proud of and Ste told Harry that he knew the Harry he fell in love with was still there and that the wedding was back on. They embraced emotionally.

Harry then left and went to see James. He told James that Ste had forgiven him for everything, Ste was the most incredible person in the world, and he was so lucky to have Ste. James didn't believe him and told him Ste didn't love him, not who he really was. He started to undress Harry but Harry stopped him and told him Ste had to be the one. James told Harry he knew who Harry thought about when he closed his eyes and that it was not Ste. Harry told James he needed to leave. James told him to go but Harry kissed him instead and when James asked Harry if he was going to live a lie Harry decided to sleep with James. The next day, Harry and Ste run into James. Ste taunted James about not knowing what love was and Harry non-verbally begged James not to tell Ste about what happened between them. James kept his mouth shut and walked away. Harry later showed up at James' door. James said he understood it was a one time thing, but Harry walked in and they kissed again. Harry told James that he wanted to be with Ste and saw James at the same time. James agreed to this. Harry also confessed to James that the wedding was making him stressed and that he was tired of pretending it was everything he'd ever wanted. Without Tony things at home were difficult as Ant refused to go to school without Dee Dee. Ste had an idea and could use Harry's help but Harry lied about needing to help out Zack in order to see James. Ste set up a home school in the hospital to cheer Dee Dee and Ant up. It worked well at first, but eventually Dee Dee burst out again. Harry told James that they were in a relationship and that they should talk about things. James, however, wasn't in the mood to chat and threw him out. When Harry returned home, Diane was in tears and Ste thought they needed to find Tony. Harry told him not to look for his dad and got angry when he walked in Ste phoning people for clues of Tony's whereabouts. Harry blamed his dad for walking out of them, but didn't tell Diane of Ste's new quest, instead he told Ste to stop looking for Tony because he worried Diane wouldn't be able to handle more disappointments. When Ste was busy with looking for Toy and helping taking care of Harry's siblings, Harry was busy with the affair with James. When Ste got a response about a video he put online, he was so excited that he told Diane that he might have found Tony. Harry was angry that Ste ignored all their wishes but Diane wanted to meet up with this person anyway. Harry left and run into James, who was about to attack Sylver McQueen with a broomstick. Back at his place, James opened up to Harry about what he felt now that Mac was in town and that he tried to pay Sylver money to have Mac killed. Harry didn't judge James, but told him to stop going after some man mountain. James tried to kiss him. Harry initially stopped him before kissing him back and allowing James to take him to the bedroom. When Harry was getting dressed he reminded James that he shouldn't be with him when Dee Dee was lying in hospital. James told Harry they couldn't keep this a secret for much longer and that Harry should leave Ste to be with him. Confused, Harry asked why, to which James told him he loved him. Harry left and didn't answer the phone the next day. Ste told Harry to wait for him outside. When James approached him, he tried to tell James this wasn't the time to talk. James told Harry he loved him again, but they were interrupted as Ste and Tony arrived. Ste had found Tony and convinced him to come back. Outside of the Hospital Harry thanked Ste for not listening to him and Diane and bringing Tony home. They went inside to Dee Dee's room, holding hands. The happy family reunion was interrupted by James, who had some information that could change this family forever. Harry tried to get James to leave before he could tell his family about their affair, but James didn't leave. At first, he first Dee Dee and Rose they were switched at birth, he then got ready to announce his second big news, but Ste pushed him out of the room and Harry quickly followed. Harry tried to prevent Ste from attacking James and told Ste he would deal with him. Harry demanded to know why James was trying to tear apart his family. James said that he didn't and that he wasn't proud of what he just did, but that he tired of chasing Harry and Harry putting his family above him. Harry told him, right now he felt nothing but contempt for him and left. Harry was outside the hospital when James showed up again. Harry once again had to stop Ste from attacking him. James told them that he was sorry for what he just did, that he did it because he was a bully that lashed out when he didn't get his way, and that he was going to die alone and bitter. Ste yelled at him, claiming that it couldn't happen to a better person. Later Harry showed up at James' door. James told him he understood their relationship was over and that Harry never wanted to see him again, but Harry kissed him instead, left James very confused. Harry told James that he loved him too but that he needed to be patient especially after today. James promised that he would be more patient.

At the start of October, James wanted to take away for a romantic evening of opera with Harry. When Ste spotted them they lied about the topic of their conversation. Ste needed James' help because Romeo and Prince had stolen his idea and were selling food in his name. James talked to the boys as a lawyer and told them to stop . Ste needed Harry to babysit and James told Harry he knew he would always play second fiddle to Ste. Ste then told Harry he no longer had to babysit because Ste wasn't in the mood to open his business for the rest of the day. Harry left and decided to surprise James. He arrived at his home with champagne and chocolates and lighted some candles. Harry left a message on his voice-mail, asking him to come home so he could prove to him he would not always be his second choice. Harry's plan got rudely interrupted when an intruder ran out of the house and Harry's foot got injured. Marnie arrived a few seconds later and spotted a half-naked Harry on the floor. Ste came to thank James for his help, but Harry texted him to lure him away before he could get in. Marnie told Harry that Tony would be ashamed if he knew who Harry really was. To which Harry answered that Marnie didn't know that either. Marnie was curious to hear what Harry was really like then, though Harry snapped and told her he didn't know. He confided in her that he loved Ste and wanted to marry him, but felt like Ste didn't see Harry who he really was now and that Ste was still in love with that 17-year-old innocent Harry, whereas James saw Harry better than anyone, but the idea of starting a proper relationship and having a family with James was scary to him. Marnie told him that he couldn't have both, that he had to pick between them otherwise he would lose both of them, and that it's time for Harry to decide who he was and what he wanted. Harry was taken to the hospital for his foot injury. When James arrived with flowers, Harry told him to leave because Ste was on his way. Ste arrived but didn't see James sneaking out. Ste told Harry he wouldn't know what to do without Harry and Harry told him he didn't have to worry about that because he was marrying Ste and Ste was the man for him while looking at James. When Harry was released he saw James flirting with another man and told Ste to go back inside with the excuse he left his phone there. He went to James and wanted to know what was happening. James told him that he was moving on, because clearly that was what Harry wanted him to do. Harry told him that was not what he wanted and that he wanted to be with him, but they just had to keep it a secret. James would not play second fiddle anymore. Harry tried to tell him he was not, but James made it very clear that if Harry wanted to be with him, he had to cancel the wedding. Ste told Harry the next day that this wedding was the only good distraction he had at the moment before they ran into James. Harry showed up at James' afterwards, trying to get James to understand he couldn't leave Ste yet. He told James that he would cancel the wedding, that they were worth the wait, and that he just needed some time. James gave him till 4 o'clock in the afternoon to postpone the wedding. Harry met up with Ste and Tony outside the hospital and got Ste to agree with him that it wasn't the right time for the wedding. However, Tony insisted they got married as the family deserved a happy occasion. So the wedding was happening as Harry didn't argue back. Harry returned to James' and kissed him, telling him that it was him he wanted to be with, but that for his family he had to be with Ste. He left his key behind and ended the affair. A week later Harry had his stag night, though he didn't want one. Tony wanted to have a drink with him at the Loft. When Harry arrived he met James' date. Harry was distracted by James the entire time. When Tony left he told James off for coming to The Loft with a date and that his attempt at making him jealous wasn't working. He claimed James was a mistake and told him to keep his mouth shut about their affair. He left and headed home to be with Ste. The next day, Harry got a letter saying they knew about the affair and would tell if they didn't get 3K. Harry told Ste he needed to pick up the suits, but went to see James instead, believing James was behind the note because James did dark and twisted things when he didn't get what he wanted. James denied he knew anything about the letter. Harry told James he had to marry Ste because it was the only good thing his family had now that Dee Dee had been put in coma. Harry made a phone call to Christopher, asking if he fancied a reunion. James took his phone away and told him he was not going back to renting himself. He took the letter and told Harry he would sort it. Harry was surprised at that and James pointed out he could be a decent person when it counted. James found out that Romeo was the blackmailer and the intruder who broke into his flat and he scared Romeo away. He told Harry not to worry. Harry was very relieved and thanked him. James reminded him that he should go because he was getting married but Harry couldn't make himself leave and asked him why he did this for him. James explained that he couldn't let Harry get hurt. Harry told James that he couldn't live without him and they had sex in the living room. This reignited James' hope for them to be together. However, when Harry left, he told James that this couldn't happen again because he was still marrying Ste and his family was depending on him to do this. Even if he couldn't live without James, he would have to. They kissed and Harry told him to stop because someone could see. James told him to enjoy his wedding and Harry left. Romeo took a photo when they kissed. James found out and chased after him. When he got him, he had another idea. He recruited Romeo to help him expose the photo in the wedding to ruin it. When asked why he would do that, he replied that he did dark and twisted things when he didn't get what he wanted, and that since he couldn't be happy Harry shouldn't be happy either.

The wedding was coming. There would be a big storm according to the forecast. Dee Dee's situation was not promising, and she could die that day. Ste and Harry intended to postpone the wedding for Dee Dee's sake, but Tony insisted that the wedding should go on, because the family deserved some happiness. When Harry ran into James, he figured out that he had some evil plan, so he warned him. Learnt that Dee Dee could die that day, James called off the plan to ruin the wedding. Turned out the therapy went very well, and Dee Dee would get a full recovery, although there was still a long way to go. Harry called James and left a message to tell him he was willing to run away with him if he wanted. James didn't pick up the phone because he was in shock when he found out Romeo was his son. The wedding went on as planned. Ste and Harry exchanged rings and vows, and they got married. The storm started right after the wedding. When they took off for their honeymoon, Ste found out about Harry's affair with James. Outside in the storm, a furious Ste lashed out at Harry. Rose was missing. She didn't want to be with Tegan since she found out she was not her real mother. Tegan, Ste and Harry looked for her in the storm. A tree fell toward them, and Ste instinctively pushed Harry away. The tree hit Tegan, and she was seriously injured. In the hospital, while his sister was dying, Ste begged Harry to stay with him to support him, but Harry told him that he was not the man for Ste anymore and he was in love with James. Ste then asked him to leave. Harry went to James', but James threw him out, because he thought Harry came only because Ste found out about their affair. The next day, Harry left the village.

2019: Relationship with James, baby drama and death[]

Harry arrived in town the day after New Year and his first stop was James' flat. He got spotted by Zack, and they found a place to have a talk. Harry told Zack he had stayed with mates over the last few months. Harry tried to explain to Zack that he loved James and that he didn't care what anyone thought. Tony appeared and he told Harry that Harry shouldn't have come home yet as Ste was still dealing with things and Tony hadn't moved past it either. Harry got stopped by Zack from telling his father the real reason for his return. Harry then decided to wait for James in from of his flat. When James came back, Harry explained to him that he knew he messed up and that James was right about all the things he had said but that things were different now. James made it known to Harry that they were not happening because he knew he would never be number one on Harry's priority list. Harry learnt James saw him earlier with his Dad and Zack and got the wrong impression, James didn't want to listen to his explanation though. He went home and left Harry outside. Harry, however, didn't give up, banging on the door while James didn't respond. When James left the flat Harry tried again to explain himself but James told him it wasn't going to happen. When James came home, he found Harry had used the spare key to let himself in, determined to make James listen to him. Harry told James about where he was the last few months and how much he had thought about James and missed him. James said that whether or not he missed Harry was all irrelevant as they were not getting back together to what they had before. Harry told him he wanted to be his boyfriend. In an attempt to make James listen, Harry put on James' robe and wig and pleaded his case as a lawyer to the jury. It seemed to have done the trick as Harry and James made love in the bedroom. When they came out, Harry got ready to leave and James thought this was one off. Harry said he had missed this and James agreed. James told Harry that he didn't want to have his heart trampled on again, but that he couldn't hide what Harry did to him. Harry told him he was done playing games and that they should be together. James agreed and suggested Harry moved into his place. Harry was surprised. James explained there could be no more flip-flopping between him and Ste and that he needed to know Harry was his. Harry told James he was all that he wanted. The next day, Harry ran into Ste and told Ste he was moving in with James. Ste didn't take the news that well. When they ran into each other again, Harry tried to apologize and explain himself. Ste didn't accept it and asked for a divorce, but the divorce never happened. Harry was ready to move in with James when James informed him this could no longer happen, because he needed to be there for Romeo, and that although they loved each other, he needed to offer Romeo stability. Harry offered to do it together but was rejected and they broke up after just one day. Harry lived with the Lovedays but was hopeful for a reunion with James. When he found out James was struggling to bond with Romeo, Harry helped him out. Having helped James, Harry hoped the two of them could reunite, but James turned him down again. His own love life might not be going very well, but Harry was determined to help out Zack by sending his love confession text to Holly, and they were finally together. When he later received a message from James, he deleted it. Zack offered to set him up with Vernon, a friend of his. Harry agreed to go on a date with him. The next day, Harry had his date with Vernon, but just as they were getting ready to order dessert, James walked in and told Harry he wanted him back. Harry wasn't sure this was what he wanted, having been rejected many times before. Vernon tried to get James to leave but was unsuccessful as Romeo joined in to help his dad out. James told Harry he loved him and put the offer of moving back in with him on the table. Harry didn't respond and James took that as his cue to leave. Before James could leave, however, Harry told him he'd better not mess up this time, then they kissed and the two reunited. After less than a week Cindy and Marnie moved into James' flat as they continued their fight against Mac Nightingale. James and Harry ended up sleeping in a single bed together to make room for their new guests. When Breda offered James free tickets for a holiday, Harry persuaded him to go and the two of them went on a romantic holiday to Vienna. After they returned from their holiday, Harry was there to support James with his case against his dad. He calmed him down and helped him out with Cindy's rehearsal. On the day of the trial, the two thought about what to do when they had the flat to themselves again but time forced them to get ready. Harry was confused when James hadn't shown up yet at the courthouse. Waiting for James to arrive, he asked Marnie if she believed he and James were a good match and they talked about the differences between him and James. Marnie told him that James loved him, but was just scared to not be loved back, and that Harry shouldn't worry about not being good enough for James, because when it was all over Harry was the one James would want to be with. Harry decided to call James, who didn't pick up. He left him a message, telling him that being with him made him the happiest he had ever been and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with him. When James still hadn't shown up, Marnie and Harry went to look for him. They found him unconscious and Harry called an ambulance. While they waited for news, Harry was afraid that James was going to die before they even properly got started. When James woke up he told Harry he loved him before the rest of the family joined them. James said he had too much to live for to continue this fight with Mac, who they suspected poisoned James. Then they realized Romeo had gone missing. When James went out to look for Romeo, they were faced with Mac's body arriving at the hospital. Harry pleaded with James to not push him away and to let Harry take care of him before he broke down grieving his father. Romeo was the main suspect for Mac's murder, but James tricked his mother Donna-Marie Quinn into taking the blame.

After the tragic death of Lily McQueen, Harry decided to visit his family, who he hadn't contacted for months. Tony was happy to see his son while Harry told him he wasn't sure if Tony wanted him around. Ste arrived a minute later to offer his support as well. Tony hugged both Ste and Harry and told them he loved them. Ste and Harry stayed for a while then left together. At the Easter fete, Harry helped out by being a goalie and seemed to be on good terms with Ste as Ste playfully pushed him into the ball pool. James, in order to keep Romeo busy, told him to spend the day with Harry. Harry took him to The Loft and tried to bond with him. When Romeo found out his mother was in jail for killing Mac but was innocent, so he could be released, he lashed out at James. Harry was surprised by this news but didn't get angry. Instead, when James didn't want to deal with Romeo, Harry offered his help. After convincing Romeo that prison might not be so bad for a drug addict like his mother, James decided to properly thank Harry for all his help and gifted him a car. It was revealed that Harry had been getting texts and phone calls from Sadie, an ex-girlfriend, which he had been hiding from James. She was in trouble and needed some money, Harry borrowed money from James under the disguise of needing it to reapply to uni. At the night he met up with her, his car got stolen by Liam Donovan and Mercedes McQueen, and involved in a hit and run causing Grace Black seriously injured. Harry believed Romeo took the car, but when he found out this wasn't the case, he reported it as stolen. However, the car was returned and he withdrew the report. Romeo asked Harry where he was before and harry lied about being with a mate to fill in forms to re-enter uni. Later that night the police dropped by and informed Harry the car was involved in a hit and run. Harry believed Romeo did take the car and gave him an alibi, whilst Romeo thought Harry did it and gave him an alibi. Harry was, however, meeting Sadie, at that time. James came home the next morning and was wondering why the car was at the police station. Harry and Romeo stick to the story they told the cops. Harry was later questioned for the hit and run at the police station. DS Yates didn't believe the car magically disappeared and appeared again and found it suspicious Harry's only alibi was Romeo. He pointed out that James was a fool for believing Harry, who was clearly lying. When they were back home James confronted Harry about the lying and Romeo jumped in and made up a lie, which Harry ran with. James told Harry that if he found out Harry was lying to him the two of them were over, causing Harry to shed a few tears. When Harry found out Sinead was raped by her husband Laurie Shelby he was there to support the family, however, troubles arose between Harry and James when James turned out to be the lawyer who got Laurie's charge dropped and kept it a secret from Harry. They got into an argument and James told Harry that he put his career above anything and Harry could pack his bag if he had an issue with it. Harry didn't leave but remained angry with James. Sadie, in the meantime, continued to text him wanting money. When Harry snapped at Romeo, Juliet implied that Harry was hiding something and the two of them followed him, who bumped into Kyle. They had a talk and Harry told Kyle about an old rebound fling coming back from his time away after his failed marriage to Ste, that he didn't want James to know because he was afraid James would end it with him for good. Romeo and Juliet spotted the conversation and came to the conclusion that Harry could be cheating on James with Kyle. When Romeo told James that he gave Harry a false alibi and Harry might have cheated on him with Kyle, his first response was how much trouble Romeo put himself in. Harry got arrested after DS Yates overheard their conversation. Harry told DS Yates that he was with Sadie but that James couldn't know. James confronted Kyle, believing Harry had an affair with him. Kyle told him to talk to Harry. When Harry was on his way home, Sadie had been waiting for him as she needed a place to stay. Harry took her inside to talk, but the two were interrupted by James. James informed Harry he knew that he lied and the affair he had been having and that Harry could pack his bag. Sadie, now was hiding behind the door, made her presence known. James was surprised that Harry was having an affair with a girl. When James asked her to leave, she informed him she would if it wasn't for the fact that she was pregnant and Harry was going to be a dad, whether he liked it or not. After the reveal, James gave Harry an ultimatum, either him or the baby. Needing Sadie as his alibi, Harry brazenly lied to her that he would stick with her and dump James if he had to. Liam told Sadie that Harry was lying and offered her money to leave. When Sadie found out Harry was lying and he would never pick the baby over James, she took Liam's offer and left. Romeo was angry with James for the way he treated Harry. He accused James that he acted exactly the same way as Mac. James reluctantly decided to accept Harry's baby. Harry arrived home to tell James he chose him, but James told Harry that he could learn to live with having a baby around. Harry was then arrested again as his alibi fell through. The next day Grace found out Harry was the main suspect, and when she ran into him after he got the bail, threatened his life. Harry needed the distraction so he helped out his dad with the delivery service of the Hutch. Tony and Harry had a heart to heart and Tony apologized for turning his back on him and that they still had time to fix things between them. Harry left for his last delivery of the day, but he was stopped by Grace, who pulled a gun on him, determined to kill him. Harry desperately tried to convince her that he didn't do it. In the end, thanked to Liam and Jesse, his life was spared. Misbah Maalik spotted him hiding in a alley, and after giving him some advice, she offered to walk him home. When Harry arrived home, he overheard James on the phone making a deal to have him plead guilty. James told him it's time to come clean, as he didn't believe Harry was innocent. Harry told James about the day he had had and James suggested they put Grace behind bars. Harry wasn't interested in having Grace behind bars because the biggest problem was James not believing him. Harry told him that when he thought he was dying James was all he thought about, and that if he didn't have James, none of what they did mattered. He asked James to believe him and James in the end said he did although apparently still had doubts.

After being abandoned by Harry on their wedding day, and Tegan's death, in his most vulnerable time, Ste was approached by a far right extremist group. Blaming Misbah for Tegan's death, and lacking support from loved ones, he was easily groomed. In the past few months, his involvement became deeper and deeper. Tony was worried about Ste's involvement with the extremists, especially for the sake of those kids, so he asked Harry to pay Ste a visit, because Harry was still the stepdad of the kids after all. Harry was not welcomed at first, but soon the atmosphere became warmer. He was unsuccessful in talking sense into Ste about the extremists but they had a good time. Although betrayed by Harry, Ste still cared about him. Harry was happy to hang out with Ste because he believed in his innocence and stood by him. Ste offered to use his contacts in social media to find Sadie. Learnt that Harry met Ste, James was paranoid with the idea that Harry was cheating on him with Ste, his husband. He accidentally punched Harry in wrath, and demanded Harry to never see Ste again, to which Harry reluctantly agreed. Then Ste told Harry that he found Sadie, and he tricked Sadie into meeting Harry at The Teahouse. Liam was also there, when they were unnoticed by Ste and Harry, he threatened Sadie to leave. Sadie ran into James and James found out that Liam was bribing and threatening her from testifying for Harry. Ste went to James' to offer his help, but James threw him out. James and Harry went to confront Liam in front of Grace. It was unsuccessful because Liam used James' distrust of Harry to his advantage. Harry argued with James, told him that it made no sense to be together if he didn't believe him, and left. He went to see Ste. Ste comforted him and reassured him that he would go through this just like before. Harry told Ste that he could go through those tough situations before because Ste had his back. Ste promised Harry that he still had his back and kissed him. Harry pulled away, then Ste told him he wanted him back. The next day, after thinking about it, Harry told Ste that he couldn't be with him because of his involvement with the extremists and now he was with James. He went back to James. Sadie changed her mind, agreed to testify for Harry and asked him to meet. Believing that Harry was actually meeting Ste, James drugged him, and he missed the meeting with Sadie. An angry Sadie changed her mind again and refused to testify for Harry. Marnie found out the truth, urged James to come clean, otherwise she would tell Harry herself. From Marnie, we knew that James did this to his ex-boyfriend before. James begged Marnie not to tell Harry, promised he would never do it again, and turned over all his drugs to Marnie, but actually he still kept some. Ste saw that Sadie met with Liam again and rushed to tell Harry. Harry went to find Sadie and tried to convince her testify for him but was unsuccessful. Sadie gave birth to Issac in the Hutch when Tony and Harry were present. In the hospital, Tony let Harry hold his son. Feeling the connections, Harry decided that he would be part of his son's life, and take the responsibility as a father. James discouraged him by implying that he was not capable of being a father. When he ran into Ste, Ste reminded him how he had taken care of Ste, and that Ste could have died without him. Ste tried to convince him how amazing he was and that his baby was very lucky to have him fight his corner. Harry couldn't help kissing Ste, but then he told Ste again that he couldn't be with him because of his involvement with the extremists and he was with James now. When James found out, jealousy made him do the most horrible thing. He drugged Harry again so that he missed his court hearing and could get arrested immediately. No better options left, Harry decided to run away. He said goodbye to Tony and Issac. He asked Ste to run away with him together. Not wanting to leave his group, Ste refused. When they kissed goodbye, Harry expressed his regret and confessed his love to Ste. Later, Harry overheard the conversation between Mercedes and Liam and learnt the truth about the hit and run. He tricked Mercedes into confession and recorded it. But, before he could do anything, he was killed by serial killer Breda McQueen. She was on a mission to kill bad dads, and she believed Harry was a bad dad because he was walking away from his newborn baby.

Background Information[]

  • Harry's year of birth was initially 1998. Harry's mother, Tessie Thompson, appeared on-screen in 1998, and in 2007, it was revealed that her 'fake pregnancy' in 1998 was a real pregnancy (as she introduced Tony to his eight-year-old son). However, Harry celebrated his 18th birthday in November 2015, giving him a year of birth of 1997.
    • This caused a large continuity error, as Tessie and Tony had not met in February 1997. From Harry's 2007 to 2013 appearances, his age/DOB reflected the transmission of Tessie's storyline, and not the November 2015 retcon.
  • In August 2016, actor Parry Glasspool was suspended from the show for two weeks and was fined by Channel 4 (with the money being donated to a domestic violence charity) after posting a (now deleted) video in which he mimicked a woman threatening to stab her boyfriend to death.
  • In March 2019, Parry was informed by producer Bryan Kirkwood that Harry had been axed from the show. His final episode aired in July 2019.
