Any long time Hollyoaks viewer will know that on more then one occasion Mercedes Mcquuen (Jennifer Metcalfe) has come face to face with serial killer Silas Blissett (Jeff Rawle) and lived to tell the tale resulting in him being even more determined she should pay for her ways.

This year’s Hollyoaks winter trailer will have us hoping Santa doesn’t visit as Silas pay another visit to the village where he revels in his tormet of the Mcqueen’s insiting that Mercedes will never see her son Bobby, again.

Mercedes isn’t the only one needing to watch out, as a worse-for-wear Cher finds herself face to face with Silas who declares him “an old friend of the family”

Silas’ return stuns Mercedes and a phone call leads to a nasty accident.

Will this be the end for Mercedes before Silas gets to her?
