Mercedes and Joe are in peril when a fire begins raging around the ferris wheel they are on

Mercedes and Joe sit tight on top of the ferris-wheel unaware that they’re in danger as the flames reach the high voltage breaker box underneath them in Hollyaks25 (see our TV Guide for full listings).


Mercedes is rescued first. However, As Joe reaches out to climb onto the cherry-picker, the generator on the ferris-wheel explodes and he’s forced to jump.

Meanwhile, Jesse’s heart sinks when he finds out his discarded fire poi started the blaze in the maze. Joe is rushed to hospital. There’s nothing more that the medical team can do, leaving Mercedes, Freddie and Darren to say their goodbyes before Joe dies.
