Stephanie Davis has announced she is reprising her role in the Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks after a three-year break from the show.

The 25-year-old, who played Sinead O’Connor for five years on the hit soap, was fired from the show in 2015 with "immediate effect" after storming off set.

Show boss Bryan Kirkwood said in a statement: "I am delighted that Stephanie is returning, 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 Hutchinson’s family in autumn, no doubt bringing drama in tow."

The Celebrity Big Brother runner-up recently hit headlines over her tumultuous relationship with Irish housemate Jeremy McConnell.
