Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) becomes convinced she didn’t take baby Eva in tonight’s Hollyoaks on at 6.30pm (See our TV Guide for full listings).

In yesterday’s Hollyoaks, Mercedes made a shocking discovery and tonight she becomes increasingly certain that she wasn’t the one responsible for kidnapping Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) and his wife Diane’s (Alex Fletcher) newborn baby girl. 

Mercedes, who has only just returned from a psychiatric hospital, thinks she knows who the real culprit is.

Later on, Peri Lomax (Ruby O’Donnell) overhears a conversation Mercedes is having and gets the wrong end of the stick. 

Peri’s misunderstanding soon leads to the revelation that it was Mercedes step-daughter, Cher Winters (Bethannie Hare) who framed Mercedes for kidnapping baby Eva!

Elsewhere, Donna-Marie Quinn (Lucy-Jo Hudson) is scrambling to sort out a last-minute gift for her son Romeo Nightingale (Owen Warner) after her original surprise fell through. 

However, some advice from James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) makes her realise that a present is not the most important thing. 

When Donna-Marie later discovers there’s been a bit of a mix up and the surprise party isn’t actually intended for Romeo, will she disappoint her son by telling him the truth? Or will she keep quiet?
