'Kathy Barnes' eager for 'Oaks comeback

Former Hollyoaks star Sarah Jane Buckley has revealed that she is keen to return to the soap.

The 41-year-old actress, who played PE teacher Kathy Barnes on the Channel 4 show, admitted that she has even created a storyline which would see her character causing trouble for ex-lover Mike (Tony Hirst) and daughter Amy (Ashley Slanina-Davies).

Speaking to Holy Soap, Buckley explained: "I suggested, and I haven't heard anything back yet, that I should come back, demand to have the babies from Amy and have a young toyboy, which would throw Mike Barnes into a right tizz.

"I think it would be an amazing storyline for her to come back and cause loads of trouble in the village with this younger man."

Buckley made her debut on the programme in 2005, but producers decided to write out her character two years later and her final scenes aired in early 2008.

She continued: "I wish they'd bring [Kathy] back. I had so much more to go with her. I was sad to leave. I didn't want to leave at all. I loved doing the show."

On whether viewers would be happy to see her, Buckley commented: "I always thought they'd say, 'We're glad you're gone'. But people say they wish she was there because she was that kind of antagonistic element you need sometimes in a soap. Get the campaign going! Get Kathy back. I'd go back tomorrow."
