Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) is feeling wretched in tonight’s Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings). 

Last week’s dramatic episodes saw her son Bobby Costello (Jayden Fox) up in court and sentenced for the series of crimes he has committed including attempting to kill DeMarcus Westwood (Tomi Ade) by setting light to Price Slice, pushing evil Silas Blissett (Jeff Rawle) to this death and allowing Sylver McQueen (David Tag) to perish in a blaze.

Mercedes was initially a no-show at the court, unable to watch the fate of her son, but she turned up at the last minute after Felix Westwood (Richard Blackwood) was on a mission to track her down. 

Tonight, Mercedes turns up at The Dog and offloads to fellow mother Diane Hutchinson (Alex Fletcher) who was recently left in a critical condition after being attacked by her brother-in-law, Eric Foster (Angus Castle Doughty) with a crossbow!

But how will Diane’s husband, Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) react when he returns home to find the two women locked in conversation?   

Later on, Mercedes gets some news from DS Zoe Anderson (Garcia Brown) that leaves her feeling absolutely crushed.
