Jennifer Metcalfe has made a shock return to Hollyoaks as Mercedes McQueen - and we can exclusively reveal that she is back for good!

Last November, Mercedes appeared to have been killed off after being stabbed and mysteriously disappearing, and a flashback later revealed that Grace Black was responsiblet.

However, at the end of last night's episode (18 February), Mercedes surprisingly reappeared as it was revealed she has been hiding away in a villa in Nice, France.

Not only is Mercedes is in fact very much alive, we can confirm that she is here to stay!

A source exclusively tells Reveal: "Jennifer is back permanently. Producers always knew she would be back but it was kept a surprise from the audience so that they could enjoy the story."

And we're told Jennifer hated telling the little white lie to her fans after initially announcing in August last year that she would be leaving for good.

After the episode aired last night, Jennifer - who joined the soap back in 2006 - tweeted: "It's good to be back."
