    Gemma Atkinson shares first-look images of Hollyoaks return as she films on set

    Gemma Atkinson has shared a first-look of her Hollyoaks return, following the news she'd be back playing Lisa Hunter after 16 years away.

    The actress shared some snaps on her Instagram from the set during filming, posing in the very same house her on-screen family spent most of their time back in the day.

    Chilling on the stairs and surrounded by filming equipment, Gemma confessed it all felt very different but also felt so familiar.

    Sitting alongside friend and co-star Kelly Condron, who plays Zara Morgan on the Channel 4 soap, she revealed she was back filming, while her return storyline is yet to be confirmed.

    She said: "Short but sweet visit back to playing Lisa Hunter in @hollyoaksofficial What a trip down memory lane.

    "So different, yet so familiar. 22 years ago my career started at this place, on this set, in the 'Hunters' house.

    "Forever Grateful for the wonderful memories, and for the fact there was no social media in those days – We’d all be screwed! #goodtimes #memories #friendsforever."

    The 36-year-old is set to reprise her role as Lisa on the show, having been a cast member from 2001 to 2005

    The star is back in her role as Lisa on the show for the first time in 16 years, having been a cast member from 2001 to 2005 – before appearing in spin-off Hollyoaks: In the City in 2006.

    It's not confirmed when exactly the scenes will air, but it will be some point this year.

    Since leaving the Chester-based soap, she's taken part in I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2007 and later played a recast Carly Hope on ITV soap Emmerdale between 2015 and 2017.

    More recently, Gemma was a participant on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017, even making it to the final with her partner Aljaž Škorjanec.

    Hollyoaks confirmed the return of Gemma and her character Lisa last November, with the actress also sharing her excitement.

    It was confirmed it was a guest role, with her set for some dramatic scenes with Zara, who also recently made a comeback.

    They teased: "Since leaving Chester Lisa has found love with her activist boyfriend in Thailand, which is where she connected with old school friend Zara. But is there an ulterior motive behind her surprise visit?"

    Gemma revealed all on her return, saying: "I’m thrilled to be popping back to Hollyoaks for a short time. It’s where my career began so of course, I was going to say yes!

    "The cast and crew are so wonderful and although we have stayed in touch personally, it’ll be great to work together again professionally."

    Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6:30pm on Channel 4, with the next episode at 7pm on E4.
