Jennifer Metcalfe wants Leah Hackett to return to 'Hollyoaks'.
The actress - who plays Mercedes in the long-running Channel 4 soap - admits she would be keen for her former co-star, who played her sister Tina, to return to the show, despite her previously dying.
She said: "I'd love Leah Hackett to return. I saw her for dinner recently and really miss working with her.
"She's been going to lots of auditions and appeared in 'good Cop'. I'm proud of her, she's just as great as ever."
However, she admits she is not sure how long her evil character will carry on in the series.
She added to InsideSoap magazine: "About four years ago, I wasn't sure how much further Mercedes could go, but the writers do such a good job of keeping things fresh.
"I loved all the stuff with Doctor Browning. When you get someone new to work with you worry, because you don't know what to expect.
"But I had some great material with Joseph Thompson, who played Browning."
