Los Angeles: Jorgie Porter is returning to Hollyoaks for part of a plot surrounding her on-screen family, the McQueens, as the soap turns 25.
The actress, will reprise her role as Theresa McQueen on the Channel 4 soap later this autumn, four years after the character left the village for a new life in Spain.
She said: ‘I was excited, but obviously a bit nervous. What if Theresa has gone out of my body and my mind?
And the anticipation of coming back has taken so long because of lockdown, but coming back felt just like home and as if I haven’t even been away for five minutes.’
Despite her nerves, Jorgie admitted she has been able to get back into her character ‘as if she’s never left’.
She added: ‘Everyone’s still the same and they’re all amazing and inviting. I’ve been on set a few times now and I’ve had the best time and Theresa has literally jumped right back into my body and my mind as if she’s never left.’
Theresa left the village in March 2016 for a new life in Spain with her daughters, Kathleen-Angel and Myra-Pocahontas.
