In recent scenes, Hope has been receiving a lot of attention from Fiz and Tyrone following the release of the book about her serial killer dad John Stape.

However, they were unaware that the schoolgirl was flogging the books to her school mates.

As Hope continued her money making plan, viewers at home were left concerned for Ruby's wellbeing.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Why do they treat Ruby as if she doesn't exist?"

Another added: "Where is Ruby in all of this , has Hope gagged and bound in the bedroom."

A third person said: While a fourth said: "Of course Tyrone gets a new desk for Hope but what about Ruby? He hardly spends time with his own daughter. The poor kid is probably feeling neglected."

While a fourth social media user: "What Hope wants she gets. So much attention on a spoilt brat. You guys forgot the other daughter Ruby? Time for Ruby to play up, because she's feeling neglected by her dumb parents."

Things took a horrifying during Thursday's (November 24) episode as Hope confronted her fellow pupils with a hammer.

The angry youngster overheard a group of older girls calling her "nut job".

They were left in a state of shock when she walked into the classroom welding a hammer.

Earlier in the episode, Tyrone and Fiz were left baffled as they discovered a tin of cash in the kitchen.

Tyrone and Fiz later received a call from Hope's headteacher and were instructed to come into school immediately.

They were informed that Hope reenacted her dad's murder of Charlotte Hoyle in front of her peers.

It was later revealed that Hope is being suspended from school.
