Margaret, who was last seen on screen in 2007, could throw a spanner in the works for Nancy's (Jessica Fox) relationship with Darren (Ashley Taylor Dawson) as All About Soap reports that she is determined to split the pair up once she makes her arrival.
Digital Spy can confirm that actress Darryl Fishwick has reprised the role of Margaret for the return stint.
As fans already know, Darren will soon start plotting a surprise wedding for Nancy, but if Margaret causes trouble, could things go awry for his secret plan?
Hollyoaks will air these scenes in early February.
