Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Hollyoaks' Sylver McQueen will be arrested for Breda's murder next week, as the mysterious blackmail plot continues.
Upcoming scenes will see the McQueens thrown into a brand new dilemma when a sinister culprit starts threatening them over their secrets.
The story will gather momentum in the show's big 25th anniversary week, as Mercedes and Theresa find a macabre doll standing on the bar at The Dog.
The electronic doll reads out the seven deadly sins, explaining that all of the family's biggest secrets will be revealed if they don't pay up.
Sylver quickly realises that the first sin of 'wrath’ must be about him killing Breda, and he's desperate not to go back to prison.
With this in mind, Mercedes decides to ask James for the money to pay the blackmailer, as compensation for shooting her last year.
When James transfers the money, Sylver breathes a sigh of relief – until PC Kiss turns up to arrest him for Breda's murder.
As the family reel from Sylver's arrest, the McQueens worry about what other secrets could be revealed next.
Later, the doll comes back to life and urges the McQueens to guess who the blackmailer is. If wrong, they are warned that the consequences will be severe.
With time running out, Mercedes refuses to be threatened and decides that she wants to meet the blackmailer, armed wearing her signature red dress.
As the family party their worries away at The Dog afterwards, they are unaware that someone is watching on. Who is it?
