Hollyoaks’ Mercedes framed for stealing Tony and Diane’s baby in kidnap horror

Hollyoaks favourite Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) is framed for kidnapping Tony (Nick Pickard) and Diane Hutchinson's (Alex Fletcher) newborn baby next week.

Diane's waters breaks in dramatic upcoming scenes whilst Tony sneaks out for a walk.

She refuses to let him back in the house as her mental health deteriorates and her fear of germs from the outside reaches new highs.

Tony later breaks down the door and pleads with her to go to the hospital but she refuses to leave the house.

The couple later welcome their newborn baby daughter, who they name Eva, to the world in emotional scenes.

Elsewhere in the village, Romeo Nightingale (Owen Warner) fears for his girlfriend Cher McQueen (Bethannie Hare) when she tells him that she wants to remove her birthmark with bleach after receiving hateful comments online.

Later, Romeo tells her dad Sylver McQueen (David Tag) the truth.

At the park, Sylver confronts Cher and she tells him that if he doesn’t help her, she’s going to have to go to extremes.

He decides to take her for a consultation to get her birthmark removed, and in return she has deleted her social media accounts.

Also, Romeo tells Mercedes that he wishes to quit his job at The Dog, as he can’t be there for Cher when he’s preoccupied with Mercedes.

They talk about their one night of passion, not knowing that Goldie McQueen (Chelsea Healey) is in the room.

Goldie confronts Mercedes over her fling with Romeo, and tells her that if she doesn’t tell Sylver the truth, she will.

Mercedes goes to her first scan, where she discovers the devastating news that she’s not pregnant.

Later, Mercedes tells Goldie and Cher what’s happened, but when Sylver arrives to take Cher to her consultation, she pretends not to know anything.

Mercedes turns to alcohol to cope with the heartbreaking news, and when Sylver finally finds out what’s happened, he shouts at Cher for not telling him sooner, which leads to Cher to do something drastic.

Romeo is shocked to discover that Cher tried to remove her birthmark. She’s in pain but refuses to go to the hospital.

Peri Lomax (Ruby O'Donnell) gives Cher stolen prescription painkillers.

Cher opens up to Peri, telling her that she’s always jealous when Mercedes gets attention from her dad, but Peri tells her it's never too late to make things right.

Meanwhile, a drunken Mercedes has been reckless throughout the day, accusing Sylver of not being bothered, and shouting at Tony, accusing him of flaunting his newborn baby daughter.

When Cher arrives in hopes of making things right with Mercedes, she snaps at her, and tells her that she’s a self-serving cow and she only puts up with her because of Sylver.

Later, Cher steals baby Eva from her pram.

The search is on for baby Eva as Tony is frantically searching the village, and Goldie overhears what’s happened.

Meanwhile, Cher places Eva next to a sleeping Mercedes.

DS Cohen is quickly on the case, as Tony snaps at Scott Drinkwell (Ross Adams), who was looking after Eva.

Goldie finds Sylver and tells him that she has a feeling that Mercedes has something to do with it.

Peri goes to find Cher to put some bandages on her scar, but instead, is shocked to find Mercedes with baby Eva.

Meanwhile, Tony tells Diane that Eva was taken from her pram, as the new parents are heartbroken, and she blames Tony for taking her out.
