Marian McLoughlin has joined the cast of Hollyoaks as Luke Morgan's estranged mum, Sue.
The former 'Doctors' star will make her debut as Sue Morgan, who was last seen in 2002 when she was played by Eve White, on Monday 3rd May.
Commenting on the news, Marian said: "It’s always a bit like your first day at school.
"You would think after 40 years or so of acting I would be used to it, but on 'Hollyoaks', from the moment I arrived, I was made to feel so welcome. I love playing Sue. She doesn't have a filter and thinks she can say whatever she likes. She’s sort of passive aggressive, she smiles at you, but then there is a real sting in the tail...
"It is a treat playing Luke’s mum. She is on mission for Luke to be happy – at least her vision of what that should be. She has come back to make her peace with her son, for her neglectful mothering in the past. I’m so pleased to be filming alongside Gary – I couldn't have wished for a more caring and generous actor to work with, and with a great sense of humour."
Sue and Luke will be involved in a frosty reunion, and she will return with some heart-breaking news.
