We reported last week how Myra McQueen was about to fix things that she could be transferred to the Hollyoaks same prison as Mitzeee Minniver, who she believe is responsible for the stabbing of her daughter, Mercedes.
Fans of the show will know that Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) had been stalking Mitzeee (Rachel Shenton) after she discovered that she was involved with her ex, Riley Costello (Rob Norbury). Things came to a head when the truth came out, and taking advantage of Mitzeee’s mixture of alcohol and anxiety tablets, Mercedes hit over the back of the head, before stabbing herself in the stomach and claiming Mitzeee attacked her.
Mitzeee was arrested and has been locked away ever since, giving Mercy the perfect opportunity to convince the entire village that Mitzeee is an attempted murderer, and worm her way back in to Riley’s affection.
With no recollection of the entire incident, Mitzeee has even started to believe that she stabbed Mercedes, and just when things look like they can’t get any worse, Mercedes mum, Myra (Nicole Barber-Lane) has managed to wangle a transfer to the same prison as the socialite, in order to get some personal face time with the girl she believes tried to kill her daughter.
According to the Daily Star newspaper, Myra wastes no time in sniffing out Mitzeee and lashing out at her, leaving no doubt about her belief in her daughters claims.
An insider said: “Myra took the fall for cousin Bart’s cannabis factory as she wanted him to make a better life for himself.
“She was inside when everything happened with Mercedes and felt helpless.
“So for her to be transferred to the same prison as the person she thinks stabbed her daughter leaves her full of rage.
“She tells Mitzeee she is going to make her life hell – and she does. If only she knew the truth, things might be different.”
