Lucy-Jo Hudson's 'challenging' Hollyoaks role

Share article:

Lucy-Jo Hudson says her "Hollyoaks" role is her most "challenging" to date.

The former "Coronation Street" actress has joined the Channel 4 soap as Donna-Marie Quinn, and she loves playing the no-nonsense character and dressing up as her "rough" alter-ego, for which she has to make her teeth look yellow.

She said: "I've loved joining "Hollyoaks", the cast and crew are amazing, and I've absolutely loved playing such a reckless woman.

"I've never challenged myself like this before!

"I love how rough she looks too, with the greasy hair, pale face, and yellow teeth (that are fake by the way) are just amazing, and get me right into character."

The 35-year-old star - who rose to fame playing Katy Harris on "Corrie" in 2002 - has teased fans to expect Donna-Marie to "cause hell" in the village, and admitted things do not look good for James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan).

She added: "Donna-Marie is arriving properly in "Hollyoaks", and is about to cause hell. She bumps into her old acquaintance, Mac, who pays her to do his dirty work ... Be aware she is gonna kick up a stink!

"Donna-Marie has a lot up her sleeve, and I can't wait for you all to see the complexity of the woman!

"James should be very scared of Donna-Marie."

Donna-Marie's daughter Juliet Quinn will also rock up in the village next week, and Niamh Blackshaw says her alter-ego will wreak havoc at Hollyoaks High.

She said: "She's set and ready to bring disruption to Hollyoaks High, and make her presence well known.

"Her mum has always taught her to be the one on top, in order to survive, but you'll have to see if she chooses to take her mum's advice, or level down and make friends for a change.

"She's not interested in being a student. She doesn't see how it's going to help her get to where she wants to be in life.

"So, she'll be procrastinating and disrupting in as many ways as she can think of to keep her school life interesting. This'll involve being nothing but trouble to the other students too."
