Lysette Anthony, who played Marnie Nightingale on Hollyoaks is back in soapland with a guest appearance on today's episode of Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Lysette, whose character Marnie was killed-off on the Channel 4 soap at the start of this year, starts a recurring role as businesswoman, Mary Dougan.

Valerie Pitman (played by Sarah Moyle) and Al Haskey (Ian Midlane) meet Mary when they attend a science fair.

Valerie and Al are there to try and pitch Valerie's invention for women to potential investors.

Things don't get off to a good start when Valerie and Al start squabbling.

Valerie feels Al isn't being very supportive.

However, hope is on the horizon when the duo get the chance to pitch their idea to investors including Mary.

Unfortunately, Valerie manages to make a mess of things when she accidentally sprays liquid in Mary's face!


Has Valerie blown her chance of attracting a BIG money investor?

He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.
