Mercedes McQueen and Romeo Nightingale have seemingly begun a fling in steamy Hollyoaks scenes.
Both have been on the outs with their partners of late, especially after Sylver slut-shamed his wife Mercedes over the leaked video that had been going around on the internet.
While Sylver seemed intent on making amends in Tuesday's (March 30) first-look episode, his vengeful daughter Cher (Bethannie Hare) intervened to suggest the couple needed some time apart.
Cher suggested that Sylver spend some father-daughter time with her instead, with the two ending up on an overnight camping trip away from the village.
The teen had no idea she was inadvertently setting the stage for Romeo to finally act on his growing romantic feelings for Mercedes, after Mercy announced she was going out for the night.
"I've tried everything to meet Sylver's standards. I've tried so hard, but I can't be what he wants," she admitted.
Romeo then surprised her by revealing: "You can be yourself with me, and I think that's perfect."
The lothario then seemingly propositioned Mercedes by telling her she didn't need to go out clubbing in order to "have some fun".
"You're right. We don't need to go out to have some fun. Do we?" Mercedes asked, while opening the door to her boudoir.
Will Mercy cheat on Sylver with his daughter's boyfriend? Viewers will have to wait to find out as the latest E4 episode finished off with Romeo very eager about the offer to enter Mercy's bedroom.
Hollyoaks currently airs new episodes from Mondays to Fridays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
