Cleo McQueen (Nadine Mulkerrin)’s not had the easiest time of it in Hollyoaks of late.
Not content with having to come to terms with her ex Joel Dexter’s secret romance with Goldie McQueen, her current boyfriend MItchell Deveraux (Imran Adams) is now harbouring secret feelings for Scott Drinkwell (Ross Adams) – and could even cheat on her with him.
Her life onscreen may well be in turmoil – but viewers are also wondering whether Cleo might be about to hear the patter of tiny feet also.
Is the character pregnant, on top of everything else she has to contend with?
Here’s what you need to know…
Is Cleo McQueen pregnant in Hollyoaks?
There isn’t set to be a baby in Cleo’s world any time soon as the character is not pregnant – but Nadine Mulkerrin, who plays her, is indeed expecting.
The 25-year-old broke the happy news ahead of the British Soap Awards in June, showing off a photo of her evening gown-clad baby bump as she and fiance Rory Douglas-Speed prepared to set off to the ceremony.
Posting the snap on Instagram she commented: ‘That’s us three ready for the @thebritishsoapawards’.
The couple – who have been dating since 2017, and moved in together last year – were swamped with congratulatory comments from followers as Nadine’s pregnancy was revealed.
Last year they delighted fans further after announcing their engagement – after a romantic trip away to Amsterdam.
How will Cleo McQueen exit the soap as Nadine goes on maternity leave?
The actress recently revealed that her exit storyline will involve Mitchell’s developing feelings for Scott.
‘We’re only just starting with the storyline, but I’m excited about it and I think it’s going to be really good,’ she told Digital Spy.
‘I definitely think the story will be explored sensitively. We want the LGBTQ+ community to like it, so it will be told in a way that’s respectful.’
The actress has been a part of the soap as Cleo McQueen since 2015.
Hollyoaks airs weeknights on Channel 4 at 6.30pm, with new episodes weeknights on E4 at 7pm.
