Hollyoaks star Gemma Bissix has expressed delight over the response to her return news.

Last month, show bosses announced that the actress had agreed to reprise her role as Clare Devine, who is expected to arrive back on screen later this month.

Bissix told PA: "The feedback has been really great and everyone's been saying, 'We're going to start watching the show again, it's going to be like the old times', stuff like that. So I think it's exciting for people.

"The drama that Clare brings, that's what soaps are about - murders, shootings, killings, affairs and this and that - and it's quite nice to get a dark edge back to it. I think fans really enjoy that. It's real edge of your seat stuff."

Bissix also admitted that she never gets negative comments from fans, despite her character's evil ways.

She said: "I only joined Twitter a few months ago because my boyfriend persuaded me to, and I've never been on a social network so I'm completely new to it, but I've now got 2,000 followers in the last few weeks and they've been lovely and I've not had one negative comment."

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
