Diehard Hollyoaks viewers and Lisa go back as actress Gemma Atkinson portrayed the character in the early 2000s.

Lisa was involved in plenty of dramatic storylines in Hollyoaks, some of which included bullying and self-harm.

However, and as any fan of the show knows, Gemma left the programme in 2005 to pursue new acting ventures, which led to her appearing in Emmerdale and Casualty, as well as participating in Strictly's final in 2017.

On-screen, Lisa set off and even found love in Thailand, where she connected with her old school friend Zara.

Her return to Chester has been teased and then confirmed back in November, 2021.

Gemma remains adamant on telling viewers they shouldn't be expecting her to stick around since her appearance will be "very, very short."

"I'm kind of in and out", Gemma said, "so it's absolutely fab that I am [returning], but it's not like a big thing."

"I don't want people to think they're going to be in with a long, long ride with Lisa Hunter. It's kind of in and out."

While the reasons for her return will need to be clarified on-screen, Gemma mentioned that, despite all her work away from Hollyoaks, the soap still had a special place in her heart.

"It's been a long time since I've gone back and that's part of the reason why I wanted to", she said, "I absolutely love Hollyoaks and the team there are great."

Gemma went on: "It's because of Hollyoaks that I've had a career. It was my first ever job. So I always said if ever there was time, I would gladly go back and we've managed to make some time."
