Hollyoaks producer Paul Marquess has confirmed the name of the Channel 4 soap's new mixed race family.

The Sharpe clan, who are due to arrive in the village over the summer months "in dramatic circumstances", will be headed up by former Footballers' Wives actress Phina Oruche.

As exclusively revealed by DS yesterday, the 37-year-old actress has signed to play clan matriarch Gabby.

She will be joined by her as-yet unnamed screen husband and two children Taylor and Amber.

Speaking of the new family, Marquess said: “We will meet Gabby Sharpe - and her teenage children Taylor and Amber - in dramatic circumstances. Their arrival in Hollyoaks will change the life of a much loved character forever.” Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
