We have a lot of questions. Who will she be playing? Who is she connected to? And how long will she be in it for?

Is it just a guest role? Or is she joining the cast more permanently? We need to know!

We’ve been wracking our brains as to who could be getting married in the near future.

With his daughter Tracy Metcalfe aware that he’s been playing away with Charity, could an explosive wedding showdown be the drama Claire refers to?

Is she Frank’s long-lost sister? Or Megan’s cousin? Or someone else entirely?

She has since starred on the stage in many major musical theatre productions, has had a stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house and been on the Loose Women panel.

Claire has a son called Jaxon, who’s nearly three.
