The hot-headed pub owner has recently been racked with guilt over the way she’s treated her kids, Bobby and her step-son, Max who not so long ago, chose to go and live with his Aunty Nicole Owen, (the sister of Mercedes murdered hubby Russ Owen), rather than stay with Mercedes in Chester.

Drinking, drug taking and general partying have often taken priority over staying at home with her kids and viewers have recently seen the McQueen’s reckless and wild side emerge once again as she’s embarked on a passionate and destructive affair with Liam Donovan (Jude Monk McGowan) behind her husband Sylver’s back.

So Mercedes is understandably FLOORED when she discovers she’s pregnant. The big question is who’s the daddy?

Or is it manipulative club owner Liam who loves leading Mercy astray and who was with her on the night that she nearly killed his sister Grace Black (Tamara Wall) in a hit and run accident.

Viewers will see the baby news rock Mercedes to her core and put her in an emotional spin.

Without knowing who the father is and struggling with conflicted emotions, will she decide to go ahead with the pregnancy or will she make the agonising decision to have a termination?
