A familiar face is set to return to our screens after 10 years in tonight’s Fair City.

Lucy Mallon, played by Lorna Quinn, last stepped foot in Carrigstown back in 2011 after a dramatic final showdown with Dolores and Pete.

Avid Fair City fans will remember Lucy as a deeply troubled young woman who became obsessed with Dolores after losing her mother, becoming so attached that she tried to persuade Dolores to run away to Paris with her.

However, Lucy ended up moving to Drogheda, where she has remained until now.

In tonight’s episode, Lucy will return to Carrigstown to work on an insurance claim, where she will undoubtedly cross paths with Dolores.

Speaking of her return to the RTÉ soap after ten years away, actor Lorna Quinn said: “I am so excited to be returning to Fair City!

“I often wondered might Lucy Mallon ever return, and if so, what could be her reason. I had such a wonderful time in 2011/2012 when I first played this character, and now the opportunity to return and step into her shoes again, really is a dream come true for me.

“I hope the viewers of Fair City enjoy her storyline!”

Continuing, Lorna exclusively told sundayworld.com what her character will be getting up to over the next few weeks.

“Lucy never had many friends,” she explained. “She is very much a lone figure.

“Building genuine and equal friendships remains a challenge for her. She is aware that she can be quite intense at times and has difficulty making friends. She struggles with the boundaries and knowing how to behave.

“Whilst in Carrigstown she gets to know Cleo. Lucy likes Cleo. Seeing her with Dolores however, does bring up feelings of jealousy.

“It is hard for her to see their very close bond when that is what Lucy would love to have with Dolores. She sees Cleo almost like a sister.”

Fair City continues tonight on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player at 8pm.
