Bissix explained: "There's only a certain number of times I can take my clothes off and people aren't disgusted by it. Hollyoaks is moving forward with new characters.

"When I returned briefly earlier this year, I thought there were a lot of very young actors, with the older cast playing mothers. I'm in between, but at 30 I feel I'm getting old. Next they'll be giving me a child!"

Clare arrived back on screen for a short storyline in March, with plans for a longer stint later in the year.

Bissix has now confirmed that she will return to filming at Hollyoaks in July for scenes due to air in September.

She said: "That's all I can say though, the storyline is top secret. Clare is really good fun to play. Just when I think she can't get any worse, she does."

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