Why is Silas Bissett back on Hollyoaks?

The McQueen family - Mercedes, Theresa (Jorgie Porter), Goldie (Chelsee Healey) John Paul (James Sutton), Sylver (David Tag), Nana (Diane Langton) and Cher (Bethannie Hare) - have been terrorised by a creepy doll for days.

The stalker has been threatening to expose their darkest secrets, and even had Sylver arrested for the murder of his mum Breda McQueen.

Sylver was later let go by police, but deciding to stand up to the blackmailer, Mercedes told her family to ignore them and not give in to the demands.

In a terrifying moment, Silas then appeared behind her in the village and stalked her as she returned to the pub.

After watching the episode, one fan Tweeted: "I bet the other one is Cleo," referencing the absent McQueen.

Another predicted Mercedes' young son might be holding a grudge after his mum’s affair with Liam Donovan, as they wrote: "Bet Silas has been keeping in touch with Bobby on the sly."
