Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe reveals The Dog's future after Russ Owen's death

Poor Mercedes McQueen is having a tough old time of it in Hollyoaks at the moment, but are things about to get much worse now that Russ Owen is gone for good? Erm, not exactly, no.

Although Mercedes won’t benefit entirely from Russ being bumped off by Breda McQueen, there is some good news for the family regarding the future of The Dog In The Pond.

Jennifer Metcalfe, who plays the unluckiest bride in soapland, told The Sun that – thankfully – Mercedes will get to keep the village local after Russ handed it over to his wife before his death.

“[The McQueens] get the pub,” she confirmed. “It’d be a shame to take the pub back off them, especially with that mural.”

Hinting at more chaos for The Dog, Jennifer continued: “They’re so lively in it, the Nightingales were amazing but this is just something completely different.

“[It’s] good for all the businesses in Hollyoaks just to mix it up now and again.”

Tony Hutchinson’s safe, though. “But not The Hutch, you can’t take that off Hutchinson,” the actress added.

Jennifer also offered a few clues about Mercedes’ (literal) fortune, revealing that multi-millionaire Russ hasn’t given her the pay-off she was hoping for.

“I think she thinks she’s going to get it but she doesn’t get quite as much as she thinks,” she revealed. “He just knew what Mercedes was like.”

Hollyoaks airs weekdays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look screenings on E4 at 7pm.
