'Hollyoaks': Stephanie Waring "excited" over Holly return

By
Hollyoaks star Stephanie Waring has praised her new on-screen daughter Wallis Day, describing the soap's new recruit as "ridiculously stunning".

Show bosses recently announced that Day had been cast in the role of Holly Cunningham, who is returning to the village next week after time away at boarding school.

Holly has been tipped to cause mischief when she arrives back, with a well-mannered and sophisticated exterior initially disguising her true bratty nature.

Waring told Digital Spy of Holly's return: "I absolutely adore Wallis already - we've bonded so much in such a short space of time. Wallis is actually older than Holly, so I'm not happy about having an 18-year-old daughter, because I don't look old enough!

"But obviously Holly is 14, so she's a lot younger than Wallis. I was 18 when I was playing Cindy as 15, so it's the same sort of scenario. Wallis reminds me of me, but she's a lot more beautiful than I was! She's ridiculously stunning."

The actress continued: "I'm excited to work with her and I think she's going to be a little bit of a mini-Cindy, but maybe even worse!

"With some of the lines she's got I think, 'Oh my God, you can't say that!' It'll be interesting to see how the audience reacts to that, but I certainly like her."

Holly's return scenes air on Wednesday, November 14 at 6.30pm on Channel 4 as she turns up for Cindy's wedding to Tony Hutchinson. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
