Hollyoaks will be welcoming back another familiar face very soon as Zoe Carpenter returns to the village for Amy Barnes's final send-off.

Zoe will join Amy's grieving dad Mike and his ex-wife Kathy at the funeral, which by the looks of things is going to be pretty explosive.

It was confirmed last week that Sarah Jane Buckley would be reprising her role as Kathy, who hasn't been seen in Chester since splitting with Mike back in 2008.

However, Zoe Lister – who plays Mike's girlfriend Zoe Carpenter – will also be making her big return, paving the way for some very interesting scenes as her and Kathy come face to face.

The latest edition of Hollyoaks' popular YouTube show #HollyGoss teases big drama to come between the trio at the funeral, which airs next month.

Sarah Jane Buckley said in the video: "It's good to be back, but there is going to be a bit of trouble caused by Zoe and Kathy at the funeral of Amy, sadly."

Amy was killed by an unknown culprit in Monday's E4 episode, with all signs pointing to Ste as the mystery attacker.

Coincidentally (or perhaps not so), her final moments saw her make reference to Zoe – who she noted hadn't made an appearance at her wedding.

Lister played Zoe between 2006 and 2010 and has been part of Hollyoaks' scriptwriting team since 2014. She recently wrote the topical episode where Nick Savage slept with Ellie Nightingale when she was in no fit state to give consent.

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look screenings at 7pm on E4.
