FAIR City viewers were left gobsmacked last night after the identity of Katy’s abductor was finally revealed.

The storyline that has kept fans gripped for months came to a head when it emerged it was none of the usual suspects, but Ciaran Holloway.

Viewers were, however, left wondering why he did it.

Former Love/Hate actor Johnny Ward, who plays Ciaran, said he has been hounded by RTE viewers trying to figure out who it was that took Katy.

A relative newcomer to the soap, his character is something of a dark horse.

“I honestly haven’t been able to go anywhere without people asking me where Katy is,” he said.

“Even when I went to Hampden Park in Glasgow recently to see Celtic play Rangers, some of the Celtic fans were asking me, ‘Where’s Katy?’.

“It really is a storyline that has gripped the viewers.

I’m truly blessed to be working with such incredible writers, directors and actors.

“I’m honoured to be part of something so special. I know people will wonder why Ciaran has done this but, believe me, the guy has his reasons.”

Last night’s must-watch episode started off with Emmet returning home furious after beating up Tommy Dillon.

Concerned by his bad mood, Ciaran asks him if he has heard anything more about Katy.

Emmet then tells him what he did to Tommy and how things turned violent between them.

Once he leaves, Ciaran opens his bag and takes out Katy’s scarf and smartphone.

Viewers then saw him watching footage of a desperate Katy lying alone in her room as it’s revealed that it was Ciaran all along.
