Corrie newcomers, 'EastEnders' proposals, more - Soap Scoop Q&A

By
We've had lots more reader questions coming in to us over the past few weeks, so it's time for another edition of our Soap Scoop Q&A, where we respond to your most popular queries.

Read on for news of Coronation Street newcomers Rob and Gloria and much more!

Marc Baylis (Rob Donovan)
In Coronation Street, will Carla have many scenes with her brother Rob before her break from the show?
She will! We hear that Carla will have about a month's worth of scenes with Rob before she leaves Weatherfield with Peter. Rob's arrival will actually make it a little bit easier for Carla to go, as she can leave Underworld in the capable hands of her brother and Michelle. So it sounds like it'll be business as usual at the factory, but with a slightly new dynamic!

Has Sue Johnston returned to filming at Coronation Street yet? When will we see her character Gloria Price on screen?
We can confirm that Sue will now be filming at Coronation Street from July. Gloria will appear on screen from September.

Jade Mitchell from Neighbours
Is it true that Gemma Pranita (Jade Mitchell) is leaving Neighbours?
While this isn't confirmed at the moment, our spies tell us that Neighbours will indeed be announcing a cast departure later this month, so it's likely that there is some truth in the rumours about Gemma. As ever, though, nothing is certain until it's announced, so keep an eye out for the official word on this.

Is there any update on the news of Hollyoaks casting a deaf actor? We saw a deaf character at the recent sixth form Open Day, so has the role been cast now?
Yes, the character Dylan who befriended Lacey at the Open Day is the new arrival, played by actor Mikey Riddington-Smith. Although the character was originally supposed to be called Mikey, it seems that this was changed after the casting stage. As expected, it's thought that fans will see Dylan return and feature more prominently at a later date.

When will Hannah and Holly Barton leave Emmerdale? Are the exits coming soon or later in the year?
Both Hannah and Holly will be leaving the village later this month. It's expected that this will air on June 20, but the date could change due to all of the soap schedule changes across June. It's fair to say that it's a pretty low-key exit for the two sisters, and fans are already seeing the build-up to this at the moment…

Samia Smith
What's coming up for Maria and Marcus in Coronation Street?
As most fans have probably guessed and as recently indicated in magazines, Maria will soon realise that she may be starting to develop feelings for Marcus. It's not quite clear where it's heading, but it's Audrey who gives Maria a wake-up call by pointing out that she could ruin her friendship with Marcus if her feelings are becoming confused…

Here at Digital Spy, we recently interviewed Samia Ghadie about the storyline and the chat will be published on the site next week.

EastEnders spoilers suggest that Abi will have to choose between being a vet or marrying Jay. Why can't she do both?
From what we can tell, this refers to the fact that Abi becomes uneasy when Jay seems to assume that she will drop her ambitions in favour of settling down with him. First of all, Abi has an offer for a scholarship trip to Costa Rica to consider, so it comes down to a choice for the teenager of what she wants - the trip or Jay?

British Soap Awards 2012: Jake Wood and Jo Joyner
Magazine spoilers revealed that Tanya would propose to Max, but more recent ones say that Max proposes to Tanya. What's going on?
Both are correct as there are two proposals! All should become clear when the next set of spoilers go live, but Tanya's proposal comes first and it would seem that Max isn't quite ready at that point. But who knows what will happen when Max later turns the tables by asking Tanya to marry him?

Do you have any Doctors gossip?
We've already teased this on Twitter, but the show will be taking a three-week break from late June. Fortunately, there's an unmissable episode on Monday, June 18 before it does, which leaves fans on a big (and tragic!) cliffhanger.
