Metcalfe feared 'Hollyoaks' axe
Jennifer Metcalfe has admitted that she feared being killed off in Hollyoaks after her character was diagnosed with HIV.

The 24-year-old, who plays Mercedes McQueen in the Chester-based soap, told the Daily Star that she sought reassurance from producers upon discovering her upcoming storyline.

She said: "When I heard I was like: 'Oh my God, they are going to kill me off.' So I went to see my producer as soon as I could and asked if they were going to kill Mercedes. Luckily they said no, which was a massive relief."

Metcalfe added that she has relished the challenges presented by her character's new storyline, saying: "I am thoroughly enjoying it, I hope there is more to come."
