After a turbulent time in Hollyoaks, Martha bowed out in high regard, having helped to save Will Savage's hostages and bring the killer to justice in dramatic episodes this week.

Speaking to Digital Spy today, Norris commented: "I absolutely loved working with all the Kanes - every scene was a treat, particularly the emotional ones as they are all such wonderful actors.

"I was originally only meant to be in Hollyoaks for a few episodes, so to be asked to stay for two years was a blessing.

"Hollyoaks is going from strength to strength and I shall be watching the Soap Awards next year to see how many awards we get. I shall now enjoy a little time at home with my daughters baking cakes."

Martha was introduced to Hollyoaks in early 2012 as the mother of Ash and Callum.

Although Martha initially seemed like a laid-back mum, viewers later discovered that she was an alcoholic - which caused plenty of dramas for the Kanes during their time on screen.

More recently, Martha has been left devastated by the shock deaths of Ash and Callum, though her final scenes saw her determined to move forward with her remaining family members.

In real life, Norris has recently set up her own cake business Chocodolly, which will be a second career for the actress.

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