Hollyoaks: Nikki Sanderson thinks her character, Maxine Minniver, should find someone to settle down with!

by Anna Howell

Newest babe on the Hollyoaks block, Nikki Sanderson has revealed that she would love it if her character was to find a nice boyfriend and settle down.

The former Corrie star, who plays Maxine Minniver in the hit Channel 4 soap, exploded onto our Hollyoaks screens as the flirty and wild older sister of socialite, Mitzeee (Rachel Shenton) at the latter part of last year after her sister was released from prison.

Since arriving she has caused all manner of chaos conning half the village and flirting with everything with a pulse, including a lad that Mitzeee was seeing.

However, despite her character’s fiery nature, Nikki Anderson has revealed that she thinks it would be great if Maxine found herself a nice bloke to settle down with this year, and seeing as her on-screen sister is due to leave the village later this year after the actress who plays her, Rachel Shenton, quit her role as Mitzeee last month, she will do well for the company.
Sanderson told What’s On TV: “That’d be nice for Maxine, to meet somebody. So we’ll just have to see what the New Year brings.

“Hopefully Maxine will find somebody nice to settle with, but I don’t know if someone would want her. I don’t know if anyone could put up with her!”

The actress, who played junior stylist Candice in Coronation Street before her character went on tour with iconic 80’s rock group, Status Quo, went on to say how she had made several New Year’s resolutions!

She explained: “I’ve got a million New Year’s resolutions. There are loads. There are so many things that I need to get sorted and done.

“But I need to be more organised. Sometimes people tell me something and it goes in one ear and out the other.”
