Gemma Merna doesn't think she'd return to "Doctors".

The 33-year-old actress has a temporary role in the medical drama, in which she played Abbie Whitwell, earlier this year and, although she thoroughly enjoyed her time on the programme, she doesn't think she'd reprise the part in the future.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: ""Doctors" was just a small character, that I played, I played a doctor so it was very very different from Carmel [McQueen, her role in "Hollyoaks"], ...and yeah she was very troubled, so it was a lot different from Carmel actually, so that was fantastic to do. And yeah we'll see what comes up. I think I've done my time now so maybe one of the other soaps?"

However, although she played a doctor in the medical show, she doesn't think a programme like "Holby City" or "Casualty" would suit her because she won't be able to pronounce the difficult words they use when diagnosing patients.

She explained: "Yeah you know what I always forget "Holby" and "Casualty", I think because the London... I don't think I'd be able to say those big words though. I'd be like to the script writers: "How'd you say that again?" "

And the blonde beauty - who is from Manchester - doesn't think she'd ever bag a part on a show like "EastEnders", which is filmed in London, because of her accent.

She added: "I think though like with "EastEnders". They don't really cast people, like "Corrie", cast people from out north, so I don't think I'll ever get an audition really from "EastEnders". But, you know, I'm northern so it's just kind of sticking to what you do, I'd love to be back in a soap, I love the way it works the fast pace, the mental story lines, and everything about it."
