Emmerdale: Claire King says she’d love to return to the show as Kim, but only to commit mass murder!

As we reported recently, former Emmerdale star Claire King – who has also starred in prison drama Bad Girls – has landed a new role in Hollyoaks playing the governor of the prison where Mitzeee (Rachel Shenton) is banged up for the stabbing of Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) which of course she didn’t do…

And though Claire is arguably best known for her Emmerdale role as super bitch Kim Tate, she has in fact starred in Hollyoaks already, having appeared in Hollyoaks: In the City in 2006 as “a business woman who’d do anything for money”, and also in Hollyoaks as a lawyer to character Justin Burton.

But while speaking to the PA about the chances of Kim making a return to Emmerdale, Claire said that would be something she’s totally up for.

Claire also pointed out that the deeds to Home Farm – where Declan Macey (Jason Merrells) is now lord of the manor – are still in Kim Tate’s name! Read more & comment »

Emmerdale: Laurel and Marlon will move in together and be “a family unit”

Emmerdale star Charlotte Bellamy, who of course plays Laurel Thomas, has revealed to Inside Soap magazine that although her character and lover Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) will soon be living together as “a family unit” their romance isn’t going to all plain sailing.

And of course, as it’s soap, we wouldn’t expect anything other!

Fans will of course know that Laurel is in the process of divorcing former vicar Ashley (John Middleton) and though she and Marlon are keeping the fact that they are now an item a secret for now, once Laurel has broken the news to Ashley, they will go public and be together openly.

However, Charlotte began by saying that having worked with John Middleton so closely during the time Ashley and Laurel were together – they wed in 2005 – to now be filming next to no scenes with him has been quite an adjustment… Read more & comment »

EastEnders: Ray Dixon isn’t Kat Moon’s mystery man… so who is it?! Plus spoiler clip

As fans of EastEnders will know, in last night’s trip to Walford, it was revealed that Ray Dixon (Chucky Venn) ISN’T Kat Moon’s mystery man, which of course leaves four suspects…

It could be any of the Branning brothers, Max (Jake Wood) Jack (Scott Maslen) or Derek (Jamie Foreman) or new dad Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd).

A recent poll on the show’s official website put Jack Branning in top place as most likely to be Kat’s (Jessie Wallace) lover, but I’m not convinced…

I suspect it’ll be either Max or Michael, for the simple reason that there’s more drama to be had there.

Both Derek and Jack are single, so it wouldn’t be as complex for them to be the men doing the whole of the Moon… Read more & comment »

Corrie: Georgia May Foote on why Katy Armstrong will offer to have a baby for Izzy and Gary

Corrie star Georgia May Foote has revealed today why it is that her character Katy Armstrong offers to have a baby for her disabled sister Izzy (Cherylee Houston) who of course suffered a miscarriage recently.

As fans will know, after the harrowing loss of her baby, Izzy told her boyfriend Gary (Mikey North) that she couldn’t put herself through another pregnancy, which of course devastated him, but he vowed to stand by her and her decision.

However, Izzy’s sister Katy knows how much she wants a child, and will make her the offer of becoming a surrogate mother.

EastEnders star Letitia Dean says “HD is so cruel!”

When Letitia Dean first appeared on EastEnders – in the very first episode actually – in 1985, she was a blemish free 18 year old…

However, though she is still absolutely stunning some 27 years later, time has inevitably taken its toll – as it’s wont to do after 40 when everything heads south or shrivels and hair appears in places it has no business being – and as EastEnders is now filmed in high definition, Letitia has resorted to using cosmetics to hide any sign of wrinkles.

Speaking to the Radio Times, Letitia – who we’ll see return to the Square on Monday, August 13th – said, “I’m having such a lovely time. Even getting up at 5.30am isn’t jarring yet.

“I’ve got my special eye cream. I mean, HD is so cruel, isn’t it? Who invented that? It must be a man.”

And while explaining that she was nervous about coming back to the long running soap, Letitia said, “I’ve still got the first-day-at-school nerves where your stomach’s flipping over… Read more & comment »

Coronation Street resident Steve McDonald is of course about to rekindle his romance with Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) but having done so, he has to set his ex-wife Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) straight when she gets the wrong end of the stick and thinks Steve’s still in love with her.

And as fans of the show will know, when it comes to women, if it wasn’t for bad luck, Steve would have no luck at all, but in a glass-half-full sort of a statement, Simon Gregson – who of course plays Steve – has revealed that he has high hopes for Steve and Michelle’s romance, because she’s “not as bonkers” as his former partners have been!

During an interview which is on Corrie’s official website, Simon said, “I think Steve and Michelle make a good couple.

Fans of Emmerdale may recall that psycho villain Ray Mullan met his end on Christmas Day in 2002 at the hands of Louis Appleton (Emily Symons) when she bashed him over the head having discovered he was the man who’d been stalking her.

But of course, the major twist was the Louise was dating Ray, and had no idea he’d been tormenting her for all those months. Her mate Terry Woods (Billy Hartman) helped her cover up her part in Ray’s death, but in the end, it of course all came out and Louise’s life was never the same.
