She has had trouble trusting friends in the Hollyoaks village to babysit her kids and worried about her jars of food being out of date.

Viewers heard her internal dialogue which exposed her obsessive thoughts about the safety of her family.

Things are about to get worse for Diane as she grows concerned for her house’s electrics.

When a light bulb goes out and husband Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) insists there’s no need for an electrician, Diane worries so much that she cancels her ultrasound appointment.

Talking to Inside Soap, Alex Fletcher warned viewers about Diane’s “irresponsible” behaviour and feeling like "she's lost all control".

She said: "She won't go due to germs, and Tony believes she's overreacting. Tony doesn't know the first thing about obsessive compulsive disorder, and he just thinks Diane's being a typical pregnant lady, so he tries to be respectful and not start an argument with her."

Diane also gets very agitated when visitors such as Nancy Osbourne (Jessica Fox) comes into her house and rushes her to leave.

When Diane is alone, she struggles with her obsessive thoughts which leads to dangerous consequences.

Alex added: "Diane has a bad accident because of the electrics she's obsessing over.”

"It all gets out of hand, she's not coping at all, which is really sad."

"It pulls at my heartstrings when Diane has anxieties, it all goes at 100 miles an hour, and she just can't claw it back."

Talking about Diane’s erratic behaviour: "By making sure everything's clean, tidy and everyone's safe, she's getting some of that control back."

"But Diane's checking everything all the time, then doubting that she's checked it in the first place, so doing it all again – she's physically drained."

Being able to raise awareness for OCD, Alex said she feels “lucky” to be a part of the storyline.

She continued: "I've learned so much from the charity OCD UK and spoken to those who were so honest about their experience.”

"It can take over your life, affect your day and job, then there's the anxiety it brings, and how important it is to have support from family and friends."

"It can take over your life, affect your day and job, then there's the anxiety it brings, and how important it is to have support from family and friends."

As well as her OCD, Diane is also battling with the fact that she is having her husband’s father’s child.

Will Tony be able to help worried mum Diane?

Hollyoaks continues Monday at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with a first look at 7pm on E4.
