Hollyoaks airs big twist in Mercedes baby story

Hollyoaks spoilers follow for the Wednesday, January 31 episode on Channel 4 streaming, which will air tomorrow on E4.

Hollyoaks has aired a major twist in the Mercedes McQueen baby storyline as she has revealed the results of her paternity test.

Mercedes had been cheating on Felix Westwood with Warren Fox, and soon learned that she was pregnant with twins. Everyone has been wanting to find out who the father is, and tonight we found out that it is... both of them.

"Two babies, two dads," she told the stunned duo. "Congratulations. We are having twins."

She explained that she had heteropaternal superfecundation, which is a very rare occurrence where a second egg cell is released during the same cycle. Warren and Felix wanted to know how soon after sleeping with one she slept with the other, but she shot down the question.

"Look, this isn't just about two, you know," she snapped. "I am carrying both of your babies. We really need to find a way of making this work."

Unable to take the news, Warren stormed out.

As if all this wasn't enough, Warren is currently blaming Felix for the death of his daughter Ella (even though it was actually Ste Hay who is responsible) and is looking for revenge — which he plans to do on the fishing trip he's invited his on-off best friend on.

Felix has been unaware of Warren's intentions, but viewers were left without a doubt as they were shown a hidden gun in Warren's fishing box.

Hollyoaks streams first online via Channel 4 each weekday at 7.30pm. Episodes then air on E4 the following day, before getting their YouTube premiere a week after that.

Selected omnibus episodes are available via Prime Video.
