Hollyoaks spoilers: DEAD OR ALIVE? Who SHOT Mercedes McQueen?

Mercedes McQueen

The hunt is on to find out who was responsible for shooting Mercedes McQueen and leaving her for dead in The Loft!

Following the dramatic events of yesterday, Mercedes McQueen is left lying lifeless on the floor in tonight’s episode of Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings).

As the truth about the hit and run on Grace Black (Tamara Wall) emerged, and Mercedes became a suspect for murdering Harry Thompson (Parry Glasspool), half the village was out for revenge and Mercedes was dramatically shot at close range in The Loft.

Who Shot Mercedes McQueen

Mercedes McQueen has a whole lot of deadly enemies!

With so many enemies capable of pulling the trigger, the big question is, who was it who took aim with the gun?

Diane Hutchinson

Was it Diane Hutchinson who pulled the trigger

Could it be Diane Hutchinson (Alex Fletcher), who was appalled to discover that Mercedes had framed her step-son, Harry for the tragic car smash, could it be Joel Dexter (Rory Douglas Speed), who found Mercedes’ confession and was later beaten up when he confronted her and threatened to go to the police. Could it be serial killer Breda who has decided Mercedes needs to pay for all her sins? Lawyer James, who is still grieving for his murdered boyfriend Harry and blames Mercedes for her part in his tragic death?

Sylver McQueen

Did Sylver shoot his own wife?

Was betrayed husband Sylver the one to take aim after discovering that Mercedes has been sleeping with Liam behind his back? Or could it be Liam himself who has been stitched up by Mercedes and recently found out she aborted what may have been his baby?

Did Grace Black shoot Mercedes

Did Grace Black shoot Mercedes?

And what about Grace, who finally found out it was Mercedes who left her for dead by the side of the road?

As Mercedes lies in a pool of blood in The Loft will she pull through?

Maalik family

The Maalik family have been subjected to appalling abuse by Jonny and Stuart

Elsewhere, the Maalik family Misbah (Harvey Virdi),Yazz (Haiesha Mistry) and Sami (Rishi Nair) are relieved when they hear that far right activists Stuart Sumner (Chris Simmons) and Jonny Baxter (Ray Quinn) who have made their lives hell and almost killed Yazz following a bungled attack, have put their business, The Teahouse, up for sale. Could this be a new start for the Maalik family or does the threat of future attacks from vile racists, Stuart and Jonny, still loom large?

Hollyoaks is shown weekdays on C4 at 6.30pm with the next episode following on E4
