Glynis Barber joining Hollyoaks as gangster Norma

Trouble is heading to Hollyoaks this spring as the soap introduces new character Norma.


Out for blood as she arrives to the village driving a hearse and demanding to know who has been stealing her money, and it looks like Ste and Sienna are in the firing line…


Speaking about joining Hollyoaks, Glynis Barber said "I’m really excited to be playing Norma as she’s an amazing character. Formidable, complex and taking on the men and leaving them quaking in their boots. The team and cast at Hollyoaks have been incredibly welcoming and I can’t wait to get my teeth into the character."


Glynis Barber is of course well known to soap fans already having played Glenda Mitchell in EastEnders and DCI Grace Barraclough in Emmerdale.


Hollyoaks continues Mondays to Fridays at 6.30pm on Channel 4 with first look episodes available weekday mornings on All4 and weekday evenings at 7pm on E4
