Heres what we learned from the trailer:
Mercedes is back – and shes got company
Mercedes McQueen is living the high life, lounging on a yacht in Magaluf. Hollyoaks village just hasnt been the same without her, but Jennifer Metcalfe is back from a stint away for maternity leave.
We last saw Mercedes as she went on the run with Goldie and shes soon up to her old ways.
Mercedes is reunited with the rest of the McQueen clan who descend for a beach party to celebrate her hen do. Shes got another surprise in store for her family, who demand to know who her mystery groom is. Its none other than Mercedes ex-fiance, Russ Owen. Myra doesnt look too impressed. Mercedes traveled to the USA, determined to track down her son Bobby and to rebuild her relationship with him. But in the process her and Russ grew closer. Even so the couple dont look too happy on the beach together. Is it a case of cold feet or are there bigger problems in store for Mercedes?
Glenn threatens Grace
Glenn wants Grace back at all costs. He drags her by the arm, pushes her up against a wall, threatens her and explains that if she doesnt come back to him he will destroy her life and everyone that she cares about. Shes later shown screaming that shes not his little woman anymore.
Milo is also back and determined to wreak havoc in his quest to protect Holly from her mum – and he tells Cindy as much. Perhaps hes smarting from covering for Cindy, who hacked Damons phone after sleeping with him. But could Milo take things too far? Cindy is seen pleading with Milo as a car dangles from a crane in mid air, with her hanging on for dear life inside.
Tom finds out who killed his parents
A horrified Tom is shown clutching a newspaper clipping that proves that Milo killed his parents. How will he respond to the revelation? Could Milo, focused on protecting Holly, be in danger? Or will Tom be the one who should be looking over his shoulder?
Mandy gives Darren an ultimatum
Mandy is getting tired of sneaking around and gives Darren a simple choice – its her or Nancy. The pair seem to be canoodling all over the village but Nancy doesnt seem too suspicious, at first, even telling Darren that hes the best husband ever. Luke on the other hand is quicker to twig that his wife is seeing Darren again.
Its not long before Mandy is hiding a half naked Darren in her bedroom as she answers the door to find Nancy standing outside. It cant be long now before the two are finally caught out…
Will Ollie expose Buster?
Predatory football coach Buster continues to groom Ollie but he may have finally pushed the teen too far.
