Former EastEnders actress Nicola Stapleton is joining Hollyoaks Later.

The star – who played conniving Mandy in the BBC1 soap between 1992 and 1994 – will appear in the new run of the late-night spin-off in September.

The official Hollyoaks website is keeping the exact plot a closely-guarded secret, but announced that the actress, who also recently appeared in Emmerdale as Eli Dingle’s partner-in-crime Danielle Hutch, will play Savannah, Cindy’s friend from Spain.

Nicola has also appeared in Bad Girls, Holby City, Casualty and The Bill in recent years.
