In tonight's episode (January 16), which mostly took place in the hospital, Warren broke the news to Mercedes that Ella was dead.

At the hospital, Myra and a returning Cleo McQueen were told that Mercedes was in a stable condition after having a heart attack.

After Felix walked down the hallway, Leela and the McQueens blamed his manic driving for putting their loved ones in hospital. Things got worse once Felix was told that two lives had been lost during the accident he caused.

After having a scan to check on her baby, Misbah gave Mercedes and the whole McQueen clan some unforeseen news that took all the family by surprise - Mercedes is pregnant with twins.

"It's good news. Your test came back and miraculously both babies are doing just fine," she told a shocked Mercedes and the McQueens.

"You didn't know?" said Misbah. "You're having twins."

Meanwhile, Warren was told that Joel was in a coma after being injured in the crash and came face-to-face with Felix.

Later, Mercedes confessed to Warren that she was responsible for Ella being drunk, saying: "It was me, I bought Ella the vodka. It's my fault that she was drunk, Warren."

Elsewhere, Cindy was told that Ella was dead while Ste comforted her. Ste contemplated telling the police it was his fault before realising his daughter needed him at the hospital.

Finally, Sienna made a shocking discovery about Dilly when she found a picture of Patrick in Dilly's locket.
