Hollyoaks Spoilers: Claire Cooper to return as Jacqui McQueen? Twinnie Lee Moore hopes so!

by Anna Howell


With the new era of McQueen’s upon us in Hollyoaks it is important to look back and remember the founding members of the most iconic family in the soaps history – But could one of them be coming back?

This year we have seen the return of two McQueen’s – Myra (Nicole Barber-Lane) and Theresa (Jorgie Porter) despite one being ‘dead’ and the other in prison for murder, so it would be an easy enough transition for Jacqui McQueen to make a return too.

Especially considering that she is on the run from gangsters who wouldn’t even remember her now, so could the eldest McQueen sister be coming back to Hollyoaks?

Well, if her on-screen cousin, Twinnie Lee Moore has her way she will be!

Moore, who plays newlywed Porsche McQueen in the hit Channel 4 soap has revealed that she would love to get the chance to work with Claire Cooper, the actress who played Jacqui up until two years ago.

Discussing her desire to work with Cooper, who recently announced her engagement to former ‘Oaks co-stars Emmett J Scanlan, during a recent interview with Inside Soap magazine, Moore commented:

“I’d love to bring back Claire Cooper, who played Jacqui. I’ve got friends who’ve worked with her and she’s a fantastic actress.

“It would be lovely to work with a member of the family who I haven’t met yet, but Claire’s doing really well for herself at the moment.”

And Moore has enough on her plate at the moment too as the New Year will see her character, Porsche, thrust into the drama as she gets locked into the walk-in freezer at The Loft, on which Moore revealed:

“I knew I’d attract a lot of drama playing a McQueen! I was happy to get this storyline, though. I’ve never been locked in a freezer before, so it was quite a challenge pretending to freeze to death!

“The make-up girls put false icicles on my eyebrows, made out of rock salt. They painted a lighter foundation on my face to make me look paler and my lips were a purplely-blue colour. I even had white powder on my arms and hands – they didn’t miss a trick!”

Hollyoaks continues tonight at 6.30pm on Channel 4 / Channel 4 HD.
