Jacqui McQueen gets hold of a gun in 'Hollyoaks', after she finds out Calvin Valentine has been cheating on her sis Carmel Valentine with Mercedes and Theresa McQueen

'Hollyoaks' Jacqui McQueen gets hold of a gun after discovering her brother-in-law has cheated on Carmel Valentine with family members.

The feisty character - played by Claire Cooper - spends the week in constant possession of the weapon as the show leads up to the dramatic shooting of Calvin Valentine (Ricky Whittle), who has been cheating on his spouse with Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) and got their teenage cousin Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter) pregnant after a one night stand.

Claire told DigitalSpy: "Jacqui goes to Calvin's house and she picks up the gun in the process of all the meetings they've had. So Jacqui is the one with the gun for most of the episodes and it's been passed between different people but always seems to come back to her.

"She finds out that Theresa (Jorgie Porter) has complications with Calvin. That tops it for Jacqui - it's enough to make her a suspect in the murder."

As well as being one of the potential characters to gun down Calvin, Jacqui also has to deal with her cheating sister Mercedes.

Claire revealed: "She says to Mercedes she wants her out of the house - and her husband Malachy as well I think. She doesn't want to see them ever again."
