Claire King to make soap return in Hollyoaks

Rachel and Nicole were fantastic to work with and I really enjoyed filming the dramatic prison scenes


Ex-Emmerdale star Claire King is making a soap return with a cameo in Hollyoaks.

The actress made her name playing soap bitch Kim Tate in the Dales, leaving in 1999 after 10 years.

King will play a prison governor in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks — the same role she won critical acclaim for in hit TV prison drama Bad Girls.

She said: “It’s great to go back to my soap roots and work with the talented team at Hollyoaks.”

Hollyoaks schemer Mitzeee Minniver has been wrongly jailed for stabbing Mercedes McQueen, played by Jennifer Metcalfe.

Viewers are aware that Mitzeee has been framed by Mercedes, who stabbed herself and framed Mitzeee to ruin her blossoming romance with Mercedes’ ex-fiance and father of her baby Riley Costello, played by Rob Norbury.

Behind bars, things go from bad to worse for Mitzeee when Mercedes’ mother Myra McQueen, played by Nicole Barber Lane, is transferred into her prison.

King added: “Rachel and Nicole were fantastic to work with and I really enjoyed filming the dramatic prison scenes.”

King’s character first appears to keep a close eye on things in scenes to be broadcast on E4 at 7pm next Wednesday, August 8, and repeated on Channel 4 at 6.30pm on Thursday, August 9.
