Hollyoaks actress Jennifer Metcalfe recently had a chat with Digital Spy about what her character Mercedes McQueen gets up to in Hollyoaks Later next week.

To read all the Later gossip from Jennifer, read our main interview with the star.

If you've already read the main chat, Soap Scoop now presents some bonus snippets from Jennifer…

Has it been nice to share so much screen time with the Costellos in the past year?
"Yeah, I've loved filming scenes with the Costellos - I think they're a brilliant family and all brilliant actors. Shooting some of the big scenes that I've done with the Costellos has been an absolute pleasure."

Are Mercedes and Carl over for good now?
"I don't know at the moment, but I think it's been a great storyline. I've been hoping that the producers could maybe explore that a bit more, as I think they make a great couple on screen. There's a lot of fire there, and I really enjoy working with Paul as he's brilliant. I've been hoping to see a bit more between them, but I don't know where things are heading at the moment."

There's been quite a bit of tension between Mercedes and Jacqui recently, hasn't there?
"Yeah, I think Jacqui has judged Mercedes a lot recently - and there's more of that to come in the next few months. I think Jacqui knows what Mercedes is, she knows what she's like - but she resorts to judging her because she's just trying to support her."

It's been another year of change on Hollyoaks. What's the mood like on set at the moment?
"It's brilliant - the mood never changes! No matter what producers they bring in or what goes on, the morale on set is always kept up. We keep on getting these brilliant scripts - and I personally keep getting scripts that I love week in, week out. We just crack on and, as far as we're concerned, nothing's changed at all."

It feels like the McQueens have had a lot more scenes as a family unit recently, so has that been nice to film?
"Yeah, it has - we've actually got a full day filming together today. It's brilliant, me and the other girls are all best friends. It's nice when you can produce some great telly but also get some time to catch up. It's a brilliant atmosphere."

Finally, we saw earlier in the year that Silas isn't Mercedes's biggest fan. Will she have to watch her back in the future?
"Maybe! He is a tough cookie, isn't he? I think every girl in the village needs to watch their back where Silas is concerned…"
