Adele Silva to return to Hollyoaks?

Adele Silva has hinted that she's set to return to 'Hollyoaks'.

The 36-year-old actress portrayed blonde bombshell Angela Brown for seven episodes last year and, although her appearance was only meant to be temporary, she has teased that she's managed to secure herself another contract for the popular soap.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, she said: "I'm going to start working again after Christmas. I'll be back on it. I don't know what I'll be doing. I'd definitely like to go back to 'Hollyoaks'. I wouldn't rule it out. My character is still alive so never say never."

However, Adele has admitted playing Angelina, who was desperate to adopt a child after failing to fall pregnant, in programme was tough because she's gone through a similar heartbreak as her alter ego after suffering three miscarriages herself.

She explained recently: "I know and understand what she is going through.

"I drew on my own personal experience for this role and in some ways, it really helped. Angela is desperate to have a child of her own."

Although, unlike her character, Adele gave birth to her daughter Sienna in March 2015 and has been taking time off to focus on her little one.

She said of Sienna while working on 'Hollyoaks': "She's amazing. I'm very lucky because my mum has been helping out, looking after the baby while I've been on set."

And, although the Channel 4 soap is renowned for its good-looking cast members, Adele didn't feel the pressure to lose her baby weight to fit in last year.

She said at the time: "It's strange because 'Hollyoaks' has a bit of a 'model' mentality as all the girls are so beautiful, but I've not felt any pressure. My job is to act, not to look like a model."
