Character Profile   List of appearances    

Cher McQueen (née Winters) is the daughter of Kelly Winters and Sylver McQueen. Cher is the half-sister of Liza Winters, Jake Winters and three other half-siblings.

Cher was born to a dentist who worked in a prison, and later ended up with four half-siblings. Her mother initially kept her paternity secret from her. Kelly often neglected her children, so Cher assumed the role of looking after them when Kelly was unable to. During an argument, Kelly revealed that she had a temper "just like [her] father", which prompted Cher to begin searching for him.


2020-: Arrival in Hollyoaks[]

Cher arrived in the village in June 2020 and watched Warren Fox, Mercedes and Sylver McQueen from afar. She attended Sylver and Mercedes's vow renewal, where she, in private, told Warren that she was his daughter. Warren informed Cher that he was in prison when Cher was conceived, and was insistent that he as not her father. Cher later met Romeo Nightingale, and the pair were left smitten by each other. Romeo told Cher where to find Warren, so she went upstairs to the flat. Cher confronted Warren and searched the wallet by him, where she pulled out Sylver's card, leading Warren to realise that Sylver is her father.

Warren tried to get Cher to leave, but Cher interrupted the vow renewal and publicly revealed that she was Sylver's daughter. A confused and angry Sylver was adamant that he was not Cher's father, and got angry with Cher. Cher then stormed off in disgust.

Kelly disowns Cher.

The next day, Sylver's adoptive sister Goldie McQueen arrived at the flat with Cher, having given her a place to stay. She privately told Sylver that she wanted £3,000, and then she would leave. Sylver agreed, but later found Cher's mum, Kelly, in The Dog in the Pond. After telling the truth to Mercedes, Cher declined the £3,000 and accepted Sylver's opportunity to get to know him better. However, she was shocked when Kelly revealed that she was moving to Greece and taking her other children before, and was leaving Cher with Mercedes and Sylver the next day Cher attempts to steal a necklace from Mercedes in which Mercedes catches her doing so Sylver is left in a pickle when Cher tells him that he hasn't earned the right to give her 'the dad talk' after which Sylver approaches Mercedes who later confronts Cher the two talk and eventually Mercedes manages to get Cher working behind the bar meanwhile Romeo and Tom Cunningham start to put a plan in action for Romeo to make an impression on Cher. Romeo gives Cher his number, but she gives it back to him, rejecting him once again. In September 2020, Romeo tells Cher that he needs another job, so Mercedes offers him a part-time job at The Dog. Later, Goldie sees that Romeo and Cher really like each other and recruits her fiancé Joel Dexter to help her play matchmaker. Cher and Romeo later realise that Joel and Goldie have tried to set them up and Cher insists that her and Romeo are just friends. Upon hearing this, Goldie vows to get Romeo and Cher together. The next day, Romeo invites Cher to Imran's party with him. Romeo is delighted when Cher shows up and the two of them grow closer. In October 2020, Tom and his girlfriend Yasmine Maalik play matchmaker between Cher and Romeo, which doesn't go so well but at the end of the day Cher asks Romeo if he's like to go on a date with her sometime, and Romeo accepted.
