Sarah Jayne Dunn is returning to "Hollyoaks".

The 35-year-old actress will reprise her role as Mandy Richardson - who she played on and off from 1996 until 2011 this summer and is delighted to be back.

Three of Mandy's former lovers, Warren Fox (Jamie Lomas), Tony Hutchinson - with whom she had a daughter who tragically died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome - Darren Osbourne (Ashley Taylor Dawson), are still in the show, while Gary Lucy is also returning as ex-boyfriend Luke Morgan, and Sarah Jayne is delighted to be around some familiar faces.

Though the characters" return details are being kept under wraps, the actress hinted Mandy could once again turn her attention to Tony (Nick Pickard), despite him being happily settled with wife Diane (Alex Fletcher).

She said: "It's so nice being back. Who knows if Mandy is after Tony, there will be some interaction with him. I'm so thrilled with what's going to be going on with the character and I can't wait for people to see it.
