Marian McLoughlin is taking on the role of Luke Morgan’s mother, Sue Morgan, and will be filming alongside Gary Lucy (Luke Morgan), Sarah Jayne Dunn (Mandy Richardson), and Stephanie Waring (Cindy Cunningham).

The character of Sue Morgan, originally played by Eve White, left the Hollyoaks village in October 2002, but she is back to make amends with her son and has come bearing some heart-breaking news…

In upcoming episodes, there is a frosty reunion between Luke and his estranged mother, as they try to rebuild their relationship.

Marian’s first appearance on Hollyoaks as Sue will be on Monday 3rd May on E4, and again on Tuesday 4th May on Channel 4.

Talking about joining the Channel 4 soap, Marian said “It’s always a bit like your first day at school. You would think after 40 years or so of acting I would be used to it, but on Hollyoaks, from the moment I arrived, I was made to feel so welcome.

“I love playing Sue. She doesn’t have a filter and thinks she can say whatever she likes. She’s sort of passive aggressive, she smiles at you, but then there is a real sting in the tail. It is a treat playing Luke’s mum. She is on mission for Luke to be happy – at least her vision of what that should be. She has come back to make her peace with her son, for her neglectful mothering in the past.

“I’m so pleased to be filming alongside Gary – I couldn’t have wished for a more caring and generous actor to work with, and with a great sense of humour.”

Hollyoaks airs every weeknight at 7PM on E4, and 6:30PM on Channel 4
