Who is the man blackmailing the McQueens on Hollyoaks?

The identity of the evil mastermind who has been blackmailing the McQueens with a creepy doll was finally revealed on tonight’s episode.

For weeks, this spooky porcelain doll had been threatening to reveal the family’s darkest secrets.

Jennifer Metcalfe, who plays Mercedes McQueen, has said she was ‘shocked’ when she found out the identity of the McQueen family blackmailer, as were many Hollyoaks viewers at home.

But just who is this mystery man, and what is his link to the McQueen family.

Who is the man blackmailing the McQueens?

The man blackmailing the McQueens is no other than Silas Blissett (Jeff Rawle)- a serial killer that is behind at least five deaths.

Newer viewers may not have recognised him, but long-time Hollyoaks fans were gobsmacked when it was revealed.

Psycho killer Silas Blissett is the father of Heidi Costello (Kim Tiddy), who he accidentally murdered back on Halloween in 2011.

Silas was then sent to a mental institution.

He returned briefly in 2016, claiming final victim Lindsay Roscoe (Sophie Austin) after she had cheated on him.

Silas and Mercedes have quite the history, as in 2011 he kidnapped her while she was heavily pregnant and locked her in the basement of The Dog in the Pond after she confesses to having an affair with Carl Costello (Paul Opacic).

Silas told Mercedes that he is going to wait for her to give birth, and then he is going to kill her.

But before he has the chance, Mercedes is saved by Lynsey Nolan (Karen Hassan).

Is the doll Silas’s way of exacting revenge on Mercedes after she got away the first time?
