Liam Donovan has alarm bells ringing when he sees Mercedes McQueen coming out of hospital. Will Mercedes, who recently discovered she is pregnant, tell him the truth?
Liam Donovan (Jude Monk McGowan) who’s been having an affair with Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) is worried when he sees Mercedes coming out of hospital with Nana McQueen (Diane Langton).
Mercedes, who was recently shocked to discover she was pregnant, has been keeping some very big secrets and when Liam rushes to see if she’s ok, she is overcome with emotion.
Meanwhile Brooke Hathaway (Talia Grant) who also recently discovered she’s pregnant with her boyfriend Ollie Morgan’s baby, is struggling to cope.
Her meddling friend Juliet Quinn (Niamh Blackshaw) has been stirring up trouble and now poor Brooke has been plunged into turmoil over her future and the future of her and Ollie's baby.
Elsewhere, Sinead O’Connor (Stephanie Davies) has moved in with Sami Maalik (Rishi Nair) after telling her mum Diane (Alex Fletcher) that there’s no way that she can live under the same roof as her convicted rapist brother Finn, (Keith Rice) who has just been released from prison.
When Sami’s domineering Aunty Kameela turns up at the family home, Misbah (Harvey Virdi) feels compelled to lie about Sinead’s unexpected presence and pretends that Sami and Sinead are now engaged to make their co-habiting appear more acceptable to Kameela. However Misbah gets more that she bargained for when her white lie has big consequences!
Plus Far Right extremists, Jonny Baxter (Ray Quinn) and Stuart Sumner (Chris Simmons) are in the throes of planning something, ‘big’. They eventually let Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) into their inner circle and give him an insight into their plans, unaware they’re being followed by plain-clothed police officers.
Hollyoaks is shown weekdays on C4 at 6.30pm with the next episode following on E4
