Stephanie Davis 'over the moon' as she is set for huge career move
Stephanie Davis is set to return to Hollyoaks - three years after she was fired from the soap.
The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant is said to be filming her scenes as Sinead O'Connor in August, before returning to the screen later this year.
According to DigitalSpy, executive producer Bryan Kirkwood said he was "delighted" at Stephanie's return to Hollyoaks.
"She's a hugely talented actress who has worked hard to overcome some personal issues.
"We welcome her return to Hollyoaks to reprise her role as Sinead O'Connor, a brilliant and vibrant character who the audience love.
"Sinead will make a return to the Hutchinsons family in autumn, no doubt bringing drama in tow."
Meanwhile, Stephanie told the Mirror she was "over the moon" to be coming back to Hollyoaks.
“I’m over the moon to be given this amazing opportunity and so excited to bring feisty Sinead back to Hollyoaks.
“I can’t wait to see all the cast and crew there, many that I have known for years.
“I just want to get stuck into learning my first scripts I can’t wait to be on set and back acting again, which is my passion.”
The actress was written out of the Channel 4 soap in 2015 after bosses terminated her contract with "immediate effect" amid reports of her behind the scenes conduct.
Stephanie originally joined the Hollyoaks cast as Sinead in 2010 alongside alongside her father Rob, stepmother Diane and brother Finn.
