    Mercedes McQueen

    Tuesday, September 30 2008, 14:44 BST

    By Simon Reynolds, Entertainment Reporter


    Jennifer Metcalfe has admitted that she feared being killed off in Hollyoaks after her character was diagnosed with HIV.

    The 24-year-old, who plays Mercedes McQueen in the Chester-based soap, told the Daily Star that she sought reassurance from producers upon discovering her upcoming storyline.

    She said: "When I heard I was like: 'Oh my God, they are going to kill me off.' So I went to see my producer as soon as I could and asked if they were going to kill Mercedes. Luckily they said no, which was a massive relief."

    Metcalfe added that she has relished the challenges presented by her character's new storyline, saying: "I am thoroughly enjoying it, I hope there is more to come."

    Considering they had unprotected sex maybe. Pep's will reduce the risk of infection, but she's still at high risk.
    Peter: So how many are there? Is it bad? Olivia: Did you eat? Peter: Yeah. Olivia: Well, that's unfortunate.

    I think you have wait 3 months to get test results (like Michaela when she was injected with heroin)

    You have two tests as the first test might not show the infection hence a 3 month wait. The second test will show up anything if it's present.

    Basically it's a marker of whether or not you have HIV/AIDS. It can show up on your first test, as you may have been infected a while without knowing so. If you have been recently infected with the virus and go for a test straight away, the test may show up negative even though you might be infected. Therefore a 3 month follow-up test is a definte diagnosis of having the disease.
