In an interview with The Mirror, the actress explained: "I was only ever contracted for the Max and Tanya storyline for a few months.

"But by the time I'd left, I'd been there for 18 months, which was unexpected but brilliant at the same time.

"I haven't ruled out returning to the show. If the right storyline came up and the timing worked, I would definitely consider it."

However, Lucker insisted that her 4-year-old daughter Lilly is her priority, adding: "Any job I take has to fit with being a mum."
