Hollyoaks' Mercedes McQueen gets ultimatum over Warren affair

Hollyoaks spoilers follow from Tuesday's (November 21) episode on Channel 4 streaming, which doesn't air on E4 until Wednesday (November 22).

Note: The following article contains discussion of suicide.

The ongoing Warren and Mercedes affair storyline reached a turning point in tonight's (November 21) Hollyoaks streaming episode, with Warren giving his lover a shock ultimatum.

Felix — who is currently in a relationship with Mercedes — previously expressed his plans to propose to the village stalwart, asking Warren to help him with a theft job to be able to afford a diamond.

Last night (November 20) saw Mercedes and Warren become intimate in the garage, before getting interrupted by Felix knocking on the door — not knowing who his partner was with.

Tonight's episode began with Mercedes looking for Felix, becoming increasingly concerned that she hadn't heard from him. Warren then arrived at the McQueens' to express his worry, revealing that Felix had plans to take his own life.

"There are things that you don't know about Felix. Thoughts he has in his head, dark thoughts, suicidal thoughts," he said. "I'm scared of what he might do to himself."

Mercedes then met with Leela, who encouraged her friend to go and use her "McQueen attitude" to work things out with her man. When Mercedes eventually tracked Felix down, he revealed how much he loves her and got down on one knee to propose.

Shocked that the engagement ring belongs to Nana, Mercedes happily says yes — neither realising that Warren is secretly watching.

Later, when the couple are celebrating their news at a party, Warren leaves Mercedes shaken with a voicemail warning her that if she doesn't tell Felix about their affair, he will.

"I'm not gonna sit back and watch you destroy my best mate's life," he reveals. "So, enjoy what you had tonight but you need to tell him about what we've been up to by tomorrow. Because if you don't, I'll tell him myself."

Unaware of his fiancée's betrayal... will Mercedes finally tell Felix the truth?
