Actress Claire King is to feature in forthcoming episodes of Hollyoaks as a prison governor, keeping a watchful eye on Mitzeee.
The show favourite ,played by Rachel Shenton is serving time for allegedly stabbing Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe). Viewers are aware that poor Mitzeee has actually been wrongly imprisoned after Mercedes stabbed herself in a bid to discredit and frame Mitzeee who was proving too much of a threat in the love stakes, getting close to Mercedes’ ex fiancé and father of her baby Riley Costello (played by Rob Norbury).
In episodes that feature ex Emmerdale and Bad Girls actress Claire King, things go from bad to worse for Mitzeee when she clashes with her cell mate and Mercedes’ Mum Myra (played by Nicole Barber Lane) is transferred into her prison and causes trouble for the Cheryl Cole lookalike.
Claire King appears in Hollyoaks in the week commencing 6th August 2012 for two episodes. Claire comments, “It’s great to go back to my soap roots and work with the talented team at Hollyoaks. Rachel and Nicole were fantastic to work with and I really enjoyed filming the dramatic prison scenes.”
