EastEnder Gillian Taylforth is moving to Liverpool

Gillian Taylforth is moving her family to Liverpool ahead of her new role on Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.

The former EastEnders actress - who shot to fame in the 80s as Kathy Beale in the Walford soap - is "really looking forward" to taking on the role of Sandy Roscoe, the mother of five hunky brothers.

She said: "I am really looking forward to joining Hollyoaks which is going from strength to strength under Bryan Kirkwood at the moment.

"My real family are excited to move up to Liverpool - a fantastic city - and I'm eager to meet my new family, five hunky Hollyoaks sons who I'm sure will all be saints!"

As well as Taylforth's introduction, Gemma Bissix - who played Clare Devine in Hollyoaks between 2006 and 2007 and briefly returned in 2009 - will be reprising her role as the soap's superbitch at the end of March.

She said: "I'm really looking forward to re-joining the cast of Hollyoaks. Clare Devine is one of my favourite characters and I can't wait to get back into the role.
