|~ Hugo to his employees.|
Hugo Browning is a fictional character and supporting antagonist of the BBC British soap opera Eastenders. He served as one of the secondary antagonists in 2017 and was the brother-in-law of James Willmott-Brown.
Hugo Browning first appeared in Walford when he meets up his associate Max Branning at The Shard, talking about a plan to redevelop Albert Square in an act of revenge for the latter being falsely imprisoned for Lucy Beale's murder. Hugo first instructs Max to discuss with his former cellmate and Hugo's nephew Luke Browning about the development of subjugating The Queen Victoria pub. Eventually, Luke is released from prison and meets up with the two along with his sister Fi and half-brother Josh Hemmings. On this occasion, it turns out that Hugo is the chairman of the nefarious company Weyland & Co; it was initially believed by a number of fans and even Max himself that Hugo was in charge of the whole development. This, however, turns out to be a misinterpretation when Hugo is revealed to be the brother-in-law of Weyland & Co's true mastermind; James Willmott-Brown.
Following James' return, Hugo is sent to aid Fi in proceeding to target the Carters in a bid to conquer Queen Vic. When Fi learns that the Carters have raised £50,000, she and Hugo both arrive and serve the Carters with an eviction notice, putting up the money owed to the original £60,000. During a meeting with the Queen Vic's owner Mick Carter and his wife Linda, Hugo strictly tells them that they have five weeks to pay him £60,000 or else they lose the pub. Later, Fi gives Mick a document where the Carters would receive a payout if they left the Vic. Mick then signs the paperwork but he signs it as "Lady Di" which leaves Hugo furious. He then reveals that Fi had been sharing personal information about the Carters with him. Linda then throws a drink in Fi's face. Hugo and Fi then leave and Hugo threatens to evict the Carters if they do not pay the money.
