Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe teases HUGE Mercedes and Russ wedding episode

Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe has teased Mercedes McQueen’s highly dramatic wedding, saying it’s one of the best episodes she’s ever read.

The Channel 4 soap is planning an hour-long special next month, as Mercedes and Russ’s wedding takes place and Carl Costello’s killer is revealed.

While Hollyoaks usually airs a couple of hour-long episodes over Christmas and New Year, it’s the first time that an extended episode has aired outside of the festive period.

Teasing what fans can expect from the scenes, Jennifer – who plays Mercedes – told Digital Spy: “It’s an hour long and I was thinking, ‘It’s going to have to be really strong to be an hour!’. But again, our writers just smash it and we never doubt them.

“It’s a brilliant episode – there was such a buzz around the building when we were filming it. I think it’s one of the best episodes I’ve ever read. I loved it. There are lots of ups and downs and perfect beats.

“I love the way Hollyoaks is using music at the minute – I think it really captures the emotion. There is lots of that and I can’t wait to watch it.”

The McQueen drama won’t be stopping after the wedding episode either, as the clan have also got an action-packed Christmas in store.

“They’ve got a big everything over the next few months”, Jennifer added. “It’s really good that they are at the centre of the show at the moment as they are such a lively family. I think it’s a good place for them.

“Christmas is absolute carnage again. I think there are 15 or 20 of us in these scenes, all round the dinner table. We filmed them last week and they are brilliant – so McQueen-esque.”

Hollyoaks airs on weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look screenings at 7pm on E4.
