Zoe Lucker has joined 'Hollyoaks'.
The 40-year-old star will hit screens in April as Reenie McQueen, the daughter of Nana McQueen and mother of sassy characters Porsche, Celine and Cleo, and is set to begin filming scenes for the Channel 4 soap in the next week.
She said: "I am really excited to be joining Hollyoaks - especially as a McQueen!"
The actress - who has six-year-old daughter Lilly Alabama - is eager to begin work on the show because there is "a very interesting story" in store for her character, who will be in prison when she is first introduced to viewers.
She said: "Reenie is a very complex character and will, in time, have a very interesting story to tell. Now I just can't wait to start filming."
Teasing the plotlines in store for the criminal character, a 'Hollyoaks' spokesperson revealed she is a "party girl" who has "issues" which her family will be forced to deal with.
They said: "Reenie is a good-time party girl without an 'off' switch and can be exhausting company although deep down she is the most vulnerable of Nana's children.
"She hasn't set the best example to her three girls, who she raised largely on her own and frequently lets them down.
"Emotionally she's got issues and sometimes it's difficult to tell just who the mother is and who is the daughter."
Zoe is known for previously playing Tanya Turner in ITV drama 'Footballers' Wives', Vanessa Gold in 'EastEnders', and more recently Carol Barry in 'Waterloo Road'.
