Hollyoaks fans were left horrified after Russ Owen was brutally murdered in a huge twist tonight.
Actor Stuart Manning has left the ITV soap after just three months after his character Russ was killed off athis own wedding.
Russ was killed in a hammer attack after his affair with Goldie McQueen was exposed.
Their secret was exposed after Mercedes said that she couldn’t deal with Joel officiating their ceremony.
After they were announced as married, Merecedes punched him and announced to everyone that Goldie was pregnant and Joel was forcing to have an abortion.
However Myra revealed the shocking truth – that Russ was the one who got her pregnant.
Mercedes and Russ became embroiled in a furious row in the church as Mercedes vowed to destroy him.
"I’ve had six weddings and nearly as many husbands. You come bottom of the list in nearly every category. I’m going to find Sylver and get myself a real man," she said. "I won’t stop until you’re broken, destroyed, dead and buried."
Later, Russ was seen being attacked and lay dead on the ground.

While another commented: " Omg Russ is dead?? Who was that?? #Hollyoaks."
