Hollyoaks favourite Carmel McQueen is set to return to the hit soap in a fortnight’s time. Warning: Spoiler Alert!

Carmel, played by Gemma Merna, left the family a few weeks ago as she struggling to cope in the aftermath of her tanning machine trauma.

It is reported that Myra (Nicole Barber-Lane) will play Carmel a visit at Nana McQueen’s house on Wednesday, October 10.

Digital Spy further stated that Myra is eager to bring her family back together following the recent Mercedes-related dramas, but convincing Carmel to return to the village may be a difficult task.

Merna recently took to her Twitter page, writing: "Everyone don't worry, I'm filming a lot of good storylines for #Hollyoaks so will be back on your screens very shortly!"

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4.
