Hollyoaks fans gobsmacked after Cher’s caught out due to major blunder

Hollyoaks viewers were left scratching their heads as Cher McQueen (Bethannie Hare) made a huge blunder which resulted in her getting exposed as the person trolling her step-mother Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe).

IT whizz kid Tom Cunningham (Ellis Hollins) recently confirmed that he could use his skills to find out who is responsible for leaving nasty messages about feisty landlady.

Sylver McQueen (David Tag) enlisted the help of the Tom in a bid to stop the trolling once and for all.

It was later revealed that the troll had been sending Mercedes messages using Marnie Nightingale's device.

As the walls closed in on the real culprit Cher, the youngster tried to use her boyfriend Romeo as an "escape goat" instead of "scapegoat".

Viewers at home rushed to the keyboard as they picked up the blunder.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Flicking through the channels – somebody just said the line 'unless they're using her as an escape goat' #Hollyoaks."

Another added: "Escape goat" alongside a series of confused face emojis.

A third person posted: "I've never heard anyone say escape goat before."

While a fourth social media user wrote: "Did Cher just say escape goat?"

Things went from bad to worse for Cher when the words "escape goat" were spotted in the horrible messages sent to Mercedes.

Romeo quickly put two and two together and worked out that his girlfriend was the keyboard warrior.

He confronted Cher in explosive scenes and she finally confessed to being the person responsible for harassing her step-mother.

Fans were delighted that Cher was finally exposed but are concerned that the troublemaker will worm her way out of the situation.

One viewer tweeted: "Cher's gonna tell Sylver Romeo either beat her or raped her, isn't she?"

Another added: "Cher and Romeo are such a messy couple, bringing the drama!"

A third person posted: "What is Romeo going to do now?"
