Hollyoaks' Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) has been racked with guilt and self-loathing ever since causing the accident which put Grace Black in a wheel chair.

Later on Sylver, who’s starting to feel he’s been too harsh on his wife, apologises and he and Mercedes make up before tumbling into bed together.

However, Mercedes is jolted into a panic when she receives a text from an anonymous blackmailer reading, ‘I know what you’ve done!’ Who has sent the text and what exactly do they know about her?
