Anna Passey has revealed co-star Jamie Lomas’s return to Hollyoaks is “sooner” than we think.
It’s been confirmed that Jamie will reprise his role as Warren Fox after boss Bryan Kirkwood teased that two major characters would be making a comeback.
And now Anna, who plays Warren’s ex and mother of the twins he snatched when he last left, Sienna Blake, has confessed we won’t have to wait long to see Warren again.
As Sienna prepares to take her twins back, Anna told the Daily Star he’ll show up imminently.
“We’ve got this huge storyline with the twins and everyone’s been saying: ‘Warren’s got to show up!’ And we do actually see him at some point but I can’t say any more.
“He’s going to be back sooner than you think – it’s a real surprise.
“He keeps nipping back in to cause Sienna trouble but he’s coming back for good later this year, which is all very exciting.”
Anna also admitted she was “worried” about her own character’s recent new direction, and feared viewers would “miss” her “dark side”.
The 34-year-old actress’ alter ego has had a tough time in the village but she recently landed a job as a teacher and started making “better decisions”, but Anna was concerned fans wouldn’t react too well to her character’s life changes.
She said: “The last few months really have been a bit of a new age for Sienna. She’s working as a teacher, a job that she loves and is good at.
“When they took this new direction with her I was a little worried as I thought the viewers would miss that darker side to her but I’ve been so lucky, they just seem to love Sienna.

However, sly Sienna is still lurking as she hatches a plan to kidnap a set of twins who she believes are her own children, Sophie and Sebastian, who were taken away from her by evil Warren.
Anna said: “Whether she makes the right choice about kidnapping the twins is another matter. The old Sienna is still in there.”
