Mercedes romantic reunion with Russ Owen was thrown into jeopardy tonight in Hollyoaks, after DS Roxy arrested her for the murder of Carl Costello.
Mercedes spent her whole day panicking. After spending the night with Sylver, Mercedes was horrifed when Russ turned up at her door, begging for forgiveness.
Mercedes promptly pushed a naked Sylver out onto the balcony and pulled herself together as Russ pleaded with her.
Meanwhile, a naked Sylver had to rush past the gathered sunbathing guests, including TV presented Richard Arnold, who made a cameo in the episode.
Mercedes didnt want to embark on a marriage built on lies and officially called off the wedding.
The McQueens prepared to leave Magaluf but as they left, Myra desperately tried to talk Mercedes into giving Russ a second chance. Was Myra feeling guilty, after sabotaging the relationship?
Nana McQueen began gushing about the new man shed met on her app and it wasnt long before listening to her had changed Mercedes mind.
Mercedes turned up at Russ yacht, determined to get him back but was crestfallen as she realised that he wasnt there.
The McQueens arrived back in England in low spirits but were stunned when Russ and Max showed up in suits, with flowers and a huge ring. The wedding was back on and it all seemed perfect – until DS Roxy turned up as well.
To the horror of the McQuens, DS Roxy then arrested Mercedes on suspicion of murdering Carl Costello.
Mercedes kidnapped her son Bobby from his grandad Carl.
But did she murder Carl in her desperation to be reunited with her son? Time will tell…
