Jacqui McQueen is back as Claire Cooper reprises iconic Hollyoaks role

  • Date: 8th December 2023

As Mercedes McQueen’s scandalous love triangle escalates this winter, her oldest sister returns to offer some words of wisdom in the name of the Lord…

The sassiest McQueen sibling, Jacqui is set to make a shock return to Hollyoaks for the first time since leaving the village ten years ago, as Claire Cooper stars once again in the Channel 4 soap alongside onscreen sister Jennifer Metcalfe.

Mercedes is in for a shock when she turns to pray in the hopes of deciding whether she wants to be with Felix or Warren but is surprised to find her McQueen sister Jacqui there as a newly acquainted nun in unmissable scenes…

The sisters jump straight back into their bickering ways as fans can expect confessions, cold truths and even a catfight…

Before hanging up her thigh-high boots back in 2013, Hollyoaks royalty Jacqui McQueen had her fair share of dramatic storylines during her six years in the village, from being held hostage in an abandoned church, to losing her husband in a tragic bus crash. She certainly made her mark as the feistiest McQueen with a heart of gold who always told it how it is.

To catch Jacqui McQueen back on your screens, stream Hollyoaks on Channel 4 on Friday 8th December, or catch it live on E4 at 7pm on Monday 11th December  

Talking about joining the Channel 4 soap, Claire Cooper said:

“It’s been 10 years since I stepped into PVC boots and hoops! I have great memories of my time on the show, I knew it would be a special day mainly because I got to dance with Jen one last time, we were on location, phenomenal crew, with a director I love, Sean Glynn, so I knew it would be handled with care, professionalism and fun! – I hope the viewers enjoy a little trip down memory lane with Jacqui and Mercy.”
