Theresa McQueen will "cause havoc" when she returns to 'Hollyoaks'.
The notorious loudmouth - played by Jorgie Porter - will return to the Channel 4 soap in spectacular fashion, producer Bryan Kirkwood has promised.
Theresa is currently in prison after being found guilty of Calvin Valentine's murder but she will soon be reunited with the rest of the McQueen clan.
Talking to Inside Soap magazine, Bryan teased: "Jorgie Porter is filming with us again and it's a delight to have her back. We underused Theresa in her last year in the show, so now we will see a renewed, reinvigorated Theresa causing havoc in all the right - and wrong - places.
"She will get out of prison, but how she manages this remains to be seen."
The producer also revealed that there will be two new characters arriving in Chester who will mix things up for the McQueen family.
He said: "This autumn will see the arrival of an extended branch of the McQueen family as we meet Myra's nieces. We are starting the casting process now and I am so excited to be breathing new life into the show's most iconic family."
Additionally, there will be justice for John Paul McQueen (James Sutton), who is recovering from a brutal sex attack at the hands of Finn O'Connor (Keith Rice).
Byran explained: "We have closely followed advice from male rape survivors and wanted to send a clear message that, although it can take time for victims of male rape to come forward, this won't prevent them from being listened to, or mean that their attacker will not face the full force of the law.
"Rest assured that for John Paul, justice will prevail."
