Gemma Atkinson is returning to 'Hollyoaks'.

The 36-year-old actress - who has Mia, two, with professional dancer Gorka Marquez - shot to fame on the Channel 4 show in the early 2000s and she's now set to reprise the role of Lisa Hunter after a 15-year absence.

A TV insider told The Sun newspaper: "Their daughter is now at an age where Gemma can work more and more and she's already been making brief appearances on TV shows.

"And it's a real coup getting her back on 'Hollyoaks' because she's arguably one of the programme's biggest success stories.

"Gemma has a huge profile through being on a string of shows since she left the soap, and dating Gorka and starting a family with him has brought an inevitable degree of attention."

Gemma has also starred in shows such as 'Casualty' and 'Emmerdale'.

And the actress previously confessed that she was open to returning to 'Hollyoaks' one day.

She said: "I'd love to go back for a few episodes, but I don't know how they would introduce Lisa back."

Earlier this year, Gemma also admitted she would love to host 'Countryfile'.

The actress revealed her ambition to eventually present the rural affairs show or another wildlife programme in South Africa.

She said: "I'm doing a bit of the presenting now with 'Steph’s Packed Lunch', which I love.

"I would love to do that but maybe about a wildlife show, or, I get to go around South Africa and, you know, look at the top five, you know, things like that.

"If I can combine my love of animals and the passion I've got with working on the telly and combine them somehow, hopefully, you might see me on 'Countryfile' one day as well."
