Jorgie Porter is returning to 'Hollyoaks'.
The 32-year-old actress will reprise her role as Theresa McQueen on the Channel 4 soap later this autumn ahead of a big plot involving the McQueen family for the show's 25th birthday in October, and she is "a bit nervous" about returning to the famous village.
She said: "I was excited, but obviously a bit nervous. What if Theresa has gone out of my body and my mind?
"And the anticipation of coming back has taken so long because of lockdown, but coming back felt just like home and as if I haven't even been away for five minutes."
Despite her nerves, Jorgie admitted she has been able to get back into the mind and body of her character "as if she's never left".
She added: "Everyone's still the same and they're all amazing and inviting.
"I've been on set a few times now and I've had the best time and Theresa has literally jumped right back into my body and my mind as if she's never left."
Theresa left the village in March 2016 for a new life in Spain with her daughters, Kathleen-Angel and Myra-Pocahontas.
Jorgie previously admitted she would love to see Theresa return to Hollyoaks as a "grandma with 20 kids".
Speaking in 2018, she exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I obviously love 'Hollyoaks', I'd never say never about returning in the future but I enjoy doing certain other things at the minute.
"I just like to experience other things. Because once you're in a soap, you're there. You're in a bubble.
"So as much as I love it, I like to space out a little bit.
"I'd love to go back one day, maybe as a grandma with 20 kids."
Since departing 'Oaks', Jorgie has appeared in 'Dancing on Ice', 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!', 'Celebs Go Dating', and the remake of 'Are You Being Served?'.
