Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Waring has revealed she’s earned a new contract on the soap.

Stephanie has played Cindy Cunningham in the Channel 4 soap on and off since 1996 and tweeted her good news, showing how excited she was to be sticking around for longer.

She wrote: “New contract!!! @Hollyoaks,” adding smiley faces and thumbs up emojis.

mong those quick to congratulate her on her new deal were Hollyoaks’ writers Jonathan Larkin and Chris Gill, but Stephanie didn’t say how much longer her contract would keep her in the village.

Her recent storyline has seen her character developing bi-polar disorder, which is yet to be diagnosed, and previous co-star Andrew Moss is set to be brought back, despite his character Rhys Ashworth having been killed off, as Cindy starts seeing visions of her former love.

Stephanie’s current run in Hollyoaks began in 2011.
