However, she then left the soap and reprised her role as Rhona in 2010.

Zoe appears in the soap alongside her husband Jeff Hordley.

She also starred in fellow soap Coronation Street, playing Spider Nugent’s girlfriend Log Thwaite.

Meanwhile, Zoe often interacts with her fans on Twitter and usually updates them on her and Jeff’s beloved vegetable patch.

Last month, Zoe revealed that she and Jeff were going to try and grow vegetables over the winter.

She told her followers: “We have decided, for the first time ever, to grow through the winter months.

“Today’s jobs – netting the purple sprouting broccoli, kale and cabbages, starting off next year’s broad beans and harvesting this year’s sunflower seeds.”

Fans love whenever Zoe shares updates or photos of the patch.

One person replied: “Wow!! Impressed. Just been looking at my empty pots and wondered if it was worth doing anything!!

“Think you have given me some ideas! Thank you.”
