“Hollyoaks works”, the actress went on, adding: “it works in my life, so I don’t think I’m going anywhere anytime soon.”

But for now, her character’s life hangs in balance.

Last night’s instalment of Hollyoaks (January 10, 2022) left viewers at the edge of their seats as a horrific explosion left Mercedes, Sylver, Juliet, Toby and even Saul in grave danger.

They are among the many characters whose fates have been left uncertain after the inferno which took at Marnie Nightingale’s Salon de Thé.

Although she remained tight-lipped about the aftermath of the explosion, Jennifer did not want to get any fan’s hopes up.

“It’s a big question if anyone’s going to come out alive”, she said, teasing that horrifying deaths are inevitable.

“I personally, as a viewer, would be very surprised if everyone came out alive.”

Sylver McQueen (David Tag), Mercedes’ husband, is also among the casualties.

The couple have had their fair share of struggles but Sylver had made the decision to leave Mercedes prior to the explosion, in the fear she would cheat on him again.

But when he was caught up in the inferno, Sylver was left to die by his stepson Bobby who is seemingly upset about him leaving his mother.

Who will be spared by the tragedy?

Hollyoaks is back tonight (January 11, 2022) for an hour-long special at 6:30pm on Channel 4.

The episode will reveal who made it out of the rubble and which characters, regretfully or not, met their demise.
