Jacqui has endured a turbulent 2011 centring around her rape storyline with Gilly Roach (Anthony Quinlan). The former personal trainer was found not guilty in his trial, but Jacqui has always maintained that she is telling the truth about what happened on the night in question.
Hollyoaks viewers have not yet seen the last of the Jacqui and Gilly storyline as show bosses have promised that there is a conclusion to the plot on the way.
Discussing her hopes for Jacqui's future storylines, Cooper told Inside Soap's Yearbook 2012 that she wants to see the feisty barmaid "having a better time of it".
She explained: "I'd really like a bit of fun for her and Rhys in their marriage. And obviously the conclusion of the Jacqui and Gilly storyline will affect that, whatever happens. There's going to be a heck of a lot for the audience to get their teeth into when the new year starts."
Discussing Jacqui's marriage to Rhys (Andrew Moss), she said: "The relationship is very funny. I think Jacqui brings out a side of Rhys that we haven't seen before. Andy Moss told me recently that he asked the show's producers a couple of years ago if he could work with me, which is very flattering."
Gilly returned to the village in September following a few months away to clear his head.
