Jennifer Metcalfe has revealed The Dog In The Pond's future after Russ Owen's death on "Hollyoaks".

The 36-year-old has revealed that Mercedes McQueen's luck could be changing as she will get to keep the pub after Russ (Stuart Manning) handed it over to his wife before his death.

The brunette beauty told The Sun newspaper: "[The McQueens] get the pub. It'd be a shame to take the pub back off them, especially with that mural."

While Jennifer has hinted at more drama for The Dog, she explained the change in ownership will be a good thing for the village.

She added: "They're so lively in it, the Nightingales were amazing but this is just something completely different.

She teased: "I think she thinks she's going to get it but she doesn't get quite as much as she thinks. He just knew what Mercedes was like."

Jennifer has been playing Mercedes McQueen since 2006, and the character is notorious for her numerous relationships and affairs and her provocative behaviour.

The soap star revealed that she loves donning all the leopard print outfits her alter-ego wears - because she is a huge fan of her character's out there style herself.

Speaking in a Q&A on the "Hollyoaks" Twitter account, she previously gushed: "The best part is playing my character is that I get to wear loads of leopard print. I, like Mercedes, love leopard print."
