Filming set to commence in June

The 48-year-old actress was temporarily written out of storylines earlier this year after her behaviour reportedly caused bosses to hold a crisis meeting.

Following a break up with her boyfriend, Jessie took some time out from working. This is not the first time Jessie had ran into trouble with show bosses, as she was also suspended back in mid-2000s.

It's now believed that she will return to work in June, when filming on the soap is set to commence.
