Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Hollyoaks star Bethannie Hare has hinted at a possible affair for Romeo Nightingale and Mercedes McQueen.
The pair have recently been seen flirting as Romeo's relationship with Cher Winters (Hare) has become strained.
Viewers know that he has his sights set on an older woman, but does Cher have any idea that her boyfriend is potentially pursuing a romance with her stepmum?
"I don't think Cher suspects it at all," Hare told Digital Spy exclusively. "It hurt her recently when Romeo wouldn't help her to win the businesswoman award but helped Mercedes instead. I don't think it clicked as to why he was doing that.
"Cher is very trusting and she trusted what Romeo said. She didn't realise there might be another motive behind it."
Asked if Cher should be worried about Romeo and Mercedes, the actress teased: "I think she should definitely be worried, because as you've seen in the episodes that have been on recently, Romeo has definitely got a wandering eye. But Cher's revenge plot against Mercedes is driving away Romeo.
"I think Romeo has seen Cher in such an immature light. He sees her as really young and bratty – and he hasn't liked it. That's pushed him closer to Mercedes so without Cher knowing, she's caused it."
Hollyoaks airs weekdays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look episodes airing on E4 at 7pm.
