قالت: “Short but sweet visit back to playing Lisa Hunter in @hollyoaksofficial What a trip down memory lane.
“So different, yet so familiar. 22 years ago my career started at this place, on this set, in the ‘Hunters’ house.
“Forever Grateful for the wonderful memories, and for the fact there was no social media in those days – We’d all be screwed! #goodtimes #memories #friendsforever.”
