Fan-Favourite Soap Star Returns to Hollyoaks: Emma Rigby Makes Sensational Comeback


Permanent Return to the Soap

A beloved soap star is set to make her permanent return to the popular British TV show, Hollyoaks. Emma Rigby, who played the iconic character Hannah Ashworth for five years, is making a sensational comeback to the Channel 4 soap. After leaving the show in 2010, Rigby went on to find success in Hollywood with roles in films such as The Counsellor alongside Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz.

Long-Term Contract

Initially, it was reported that Rigby would be returning for a guest stint on Hollyoaks. However, HOAR Online can exclusively reveal that she has now signed a one-year contract with the show. According to a source, Rigby's return has left her co-stars "over the moon" and everyone is excited to have her back as a regular cast member. The actress herself feels like she's back home on the set of Hollyoaks.

Hollyoaks Undergoing Resurgence

Hollyoaks has been undergoing a resurgence recently. Three top bosses were axed in August and Hannah Cheers, who previously worked on the show under Bryan Kirkwood before moving to Emmerdale, was brought back to overhaul the series. Cheers has been shaking things up with new storylines and is orchestrating one of the biggest stunts in the soap's history. Viewers can expect to see the start of this new era under Hannah in tomorrow night's explosive episodes.

Exciting Times Ahead

With Rigby's return and the upcoming stunt, there is a real buzz around the Hollyoaks set. The soap is entering an exciting time, and the repercussions of the stunt will affect some of its biggest and most-loved characters. Fans of the show can look forward to watching Rigby's return as Hannah Ashworth later this month when she reunites with her on-screen family.

Returning Cast Members

Emma Rigby is not the only familiar face coming back to Hollyoaks. Charlie Clapham, who plays Freddie Roscoe, will be reprising his role this spring. Clapham's character will reconnect with his half-brother Darren, played by Ashley Taylor Dawson, whose life has been thrown into chaos with the return of his teenage twins.

Hollyoaks airs weekdays at 7pm on E4.
