Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe has said she wants Mercedes McQueen to get a sugar daddy – but isn’t hopeful.

“I remember thinking when Jesse Birdsall was here that Mercedes should have been paired up with Fraser.

“I think she’d like having a sugar daddy!”

But going by Mercedes’ track record, Jennifer doesn’t have much hope for the type of man her character will end up with next.

She joked: “We’re scraping the bottom of the barrel! I’m sure there are a few creatures hanging around who she’ll have her eye on.”

Mercedes’ relationship with Freddie Roscoe (Charlie Clapham) is set to take a dark turn when she records him confessing to the murder of Fraser – which is why Jennifer is already thinking about who she would like Mercedes to date next.
