Mercedes Mc Queen's love rival cast in Hollyoaks

Annie CooperMercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) is set to find a new love rival in a few weeks as sassy wannabe WAG Alex rocks up on Hollyoaks. The newcomer played by Danielle Cooper will stir up trouble as she flirts with Mercedes' footballer fiancé Riley Costello (Rob Norbury).

The barmaid, played by Dancing On Ice star Jennifer Metcalfe is currently planning a massive dream wedding to Riley but things will get complicated when stunning blonde bombshell Alex makes a move on a drunken Riley. Whilst he's pleased at the attention that he's getting, would Riley really risk Mercedes' wrath by cheating?

Eagle-eyed television viewers may recognize Annie from Coronation Street, Married Single Other and The Bill. The sassy WAG wannabe is certainly going to stir things up but will we see any romance between her and Riley?

Talking about the new role, the lovely Annie said: ''I am delighted to be joining the glamorous cast of Hollyoaks as naughty minx Alex. She's really going to test Riley and Mercedes' relationship and it's exciting to see how it all turns out.''

A statement from the C4 soap teased: ''Alex only has one thing on her mind, but which wannabe WAG will reign supreme and at what cost?'' Alex makes her debut in April.

So are we all as excited as Tellymix to see the glamorous and naughty Alex? Who will reign supreme, Alex or Mercedes? Will Riley really cheat?
