Claire Cooper is to reprise her role as Jacqui McQueen on Hollyoaks after 10 years away, it has been confirmed.
The character will reappear for a one-off episode later this month as part of the storyline involving the disappearance of her sister Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe).
"Bosses know that fans want to see their favourite characters from the soap's long history and Jacqui was on the top of the wish list," a source told The Sun.
"She's iconic and feisty and it's going to be a true pre-Christmas treat for fans to see what she's been up to.
"Mercedes has vanished and the family are desperate to find her.
"It soon becomes clear that Jacqui is involved. And she's not the only McQueen return on the cards with bosses making rebuilding the family as a priority."
Hollyoaks continues weekdays on Channel 4 streaming and E4.
