Hollyoaks fans will soon be saying hello to a familiar soap face.

Former Coronation Street star Katie McGlynn has been cast in a new role on the Channel 4 soap as Becky. Becky is a new mum and will grow close to pregnant Diane Hutchinson as they swap stories about motherhood.

But it sounds like Diane might not want to get too involved with the newbie…

Apparently, Becky’s not quite all she seems as it sounds like she may have a reason for being friendly with Diane that isn’t all it seems. But what could it be?

Katie’s first appearance on the soap will take place on Monday July 5 on E4 and the day after on Channel 4.

“When I first read the script, I knew instantly that this storyline was an important one, and something that I could really sink my teeth into. I’m so excited for everyone to meet Becky and am thrilled to be working alongside the amazing cast and crew of Hollyoaks,” Katie said, adding that she’s excited to reunite with the show’s producer Lucy Allan after they previously teamed up on Waterloo Road.

Speaking about her first few days on the set, Katie explained: “The whole team couldn’t have been any more welcoming so far and I’m hopeful the story will have an impact on the viewers as it covers some extremely current and important issues.

“I’m super humbled to continue doing the work I really love and hope everyone enjoys watching it all unfold on screen as much as I’ve enjoyed filming it so far.”

Soap fans will probably best recognise Katie as Corrie‘s Sinead Tinker. The star first popped up in the ITV soap in 2013 but waved goodbye in 2019 when Sinead died in harrowing scenes after a battle with cancer. She’s also more recently appeared in the BBC One drama The Syndicate.

Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look episodes airing at 7pm on E4.
