Hollyoaks star Nikki Sanderson has hinted that she will be involved in some challenging storylines in the near future.

The 29-year-old former Coronation Street star, who plays Maxine Minniver in the popular soap, also thanked fans for all their support.

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, Sanderson said: "I'm having such a good time and I absolutely love playing Maxine. She's an awesome character.

"I've had such a great reaction from the public. People have been so lovely. They've really taken to Maxine. The storylines coming up are going to challenge me as an actress.

"Whenever I get a new script, I can't wait to see what she's going to say next. She's feisty and happy but also really naive.

"She does so many things I would never do in real life. I love playing comedy but the really good thing with Hollyoaks is that they are going to show so many different dimensions to her."
