Now that Dr Browning has been revealed as an official suspect in the upcoming Hollyoaks murder of Texas Longford, it was only a matter of time before Mercedes was mentioned!
It seemed a tad unlikely at first why Dr Browning (joseph Thompson) would have anything to do with the wedding of a couple of students who hardly ever cross his path, but when Leanne Holiday (Jessica Forrest) accidentally found his £200k ransom money for Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) and donated it to best friends Will (James Atherton) and Texas (Bianca Hendrickse-Spendlove) wedding fund, it all started to make a bit more sense.
Fans will know how Leanne and Will are now aware of where the money came from, and what it was intend for, but have chosen to keep schtum and use it to host the wedding of the year anyway.
The money is far from the least of their worries, however, as when Texas sees the pair kissing, she decides she finally has a good enough reason to dump Will and call off the wedding.
Manipulative as ever Will responds by telling his future wife that he has a serious illness in a bid to stop her from doing so, which works.
But all that is about to change when Mercedes gate-crashes their wedding with a few bombshells which might change Texas’ mind, as well as expose a few more clues leading up to Texas wedding day murder!
Interrupting proceedings Mercedes informs Texas that the wedding is being paid for with stolen blood money, as well as informing her that Will has been lying to her about having a brain aneurysm.
Bianca Hendrickse-Spendlove, who plays Texas, told All About Soap: “[Mercedes] reveals all about the ransom money Leanne and Will stole from Browning, and says that Will has made up the story about his aneurysm.
“Suddenly it dawns on Texas – where has all this money come from? And how does Mercedes even know about Will’s illness? Her head’s in a spin.
“She goes upstairs at the venue and finds the stash of stolen cash, and that’s when she realises that Leanne’s been lying to her. They have a big spat, but Texas also has fights with Dodger, Mercedes and Will. And then one of these arguments turns violent and Texas falls through the window.”
However the actress went on to explain how viewers won’t actually see who it is who pushes her:
She said: “There are five suspects in the frame – Leanne, Browning, Dodger, Will and Theresa. I think the viewers will be in for a big shock when the identity of the killer is finally revealed.”
Watch all the drama unfold in Hollyoaks on Monday, May 6 at 6.30pm on Channel 4/ Channel 4 HD.
