Kym Marsh backs Jamie Lomas' Hollyoaks return

Kym Marsh is backing Jamie Lomas to return to 'Hollyoaks'.

The former 'Coronation Street' star is delighted with speculation her former partner is to return to the Channel 4 soap - who played gangster Warren Fox between 2006 and 2009 and again in 2011 - because he was a "huge asset" to the show.

She said: "There have been rumours that Jamie might be going back into 'Hollyoaks'. I haven't spoken to him about it but I hope it's true. He's been doing some theatre and he's opening his own theatre school, but I think he was a huge asset when he was in the show.

"He was such a good baddie in 'Hollyoaks'. There is no reason why he couldn't come back as his character was put in prison the last time he was on screen."

Meanwhile, over on 'Corrie', Kym is delighted to have Simon Gregson back as Steve McDonald following a five-month break.

She told OK! magazine: "Simon has started back to work. It was so good to have him back and we were really excited to shoot our first scene together. He looks so well.

"He was supposed to have been in Spain for six months so he had a spray tan. He joked about his hands looking patchy and said, 'I look like I've had a fight with a gingerbread man.' "
