Hollyoaks Mercedes Fisher threatened with dogs
'Hollyoaks' Mercedes Fisher and Dr. Paul Browning are to be threatened with ravenous dogs by evil Clare Devine after she doesn't get the ransom money she hoped for from them
'Hollyoaks' Mercedes Fisher and Dr. Paul Browning are to be threatened with ravenous dogs by Clare Devine.
Evil Clare (Gemma Bissix) - who has been holding Mercedes hostage - thinks she has been double crossed when she mistakes a gym bag of clothes for the £20,000 ransom money prepared for her by Browning and the McQueen family, prompting her to take drastic action.
Jennifer Metcalfe, who plays Mercedes, told All About Soap magazine: "Clare moves Mercy to a scrap yard and locks her up in this cage.
"I have no idea how Clare has the strength to overpower Mercedes. It's one of those TV mysteries.
"She can't escape, because savage dogs are surrounding the cage, and Clare warns they'll attack her if she gets out. She's stuck in this cage in the middle of nowhere, with no-one to hear her cries for help."
Explaining how Mercedes' fiance, Dr. Browning (Joseph Thompson) ends up in the cage with her, she added: "Browning meets up with Clare and she lures him into the cage and then whacks him with a heavy stone, leaving him with a nasty head wound."
While the situation Clare puts the pair in is awful, it helps bring Mercedes and the wayward medic closer again.
Jennifer added: "I think they're a match made in heaven, so they could go all the way - she might make it up the aisle this time! But they test each other so much, they could push one another away. It's one extreme to the other with them."
