More old characters also thought to be in the frame

Gemma Atkinson is apparently being lined up to return to Hollyoaks.

The model, 24, left the teen drama in 2005, but bosses hope she can be lured back to the show.

Gemma was one of the most popular characters so to get her back would be a real triumph,’ a source tells The Daily Star.

‘Everyone is very excited about the future.’

Marcus Patrick (Ben Davies) James Redmond (Finn), Kevin Sacre (Jake Dean) and Elize Du Toit (Izzy Davies) are also rumoured to be rejoining the Channel 4 programme.
