MERCEDES McQueen left Hollyoaks fans feeling loved up tonight as she proposed to her cousin Sylver.
The Dog in the Pond landlady – who is played by actress Jennifer Metcalfe in the Channel 4 soap – got down on one knee and asked him to be her husband with an onion ring.
“I love you,” she told him.
“Of course I do but you already knew that right. I have loved you for like forever. I could never hate you. After the boys, you are the single most important person in my life.
“You know what, I’m going to prove it to you. Sylvester McQueen, will you marry me?”
The ex con – who is played by actor David Tag in the Channel 4 soap – didn’t give an answer in tonight’s episode after he narrowly survived Liam Donovan shooting him.
Mercedes McQueen screamed in horror as she discovered Sylver is the one who was shot, as he lay bleeding to death on the floor.
She ran to him and he collapsed in to her arms desperately trying to keep breathing.
Seeing the destruction he caused, Liam fled the scene and disposed of the gun.
It was also revealed how Joel accidentally caused the shooting by taking Liam’s money, prompting him to get a gun for protection.
