The pair were reunited in October last year. "I'm delighted to be joining Hollyoaks and my friend, Gary Lucy for a brilliant storyline," Amy said at the time. "It's a character they've been planning for a while and I'm thrilled to be involved.

"It's always a pleasure to work with a friend – but this in particular is going to be really special."
