The McQueen clan is set to be extended later this year following the return of loudmouth Myra McQueen (Nicole Barber-Lane).
Executive producer Bryan Kirkwood has promised fans that a new branch of the McQueen family will be introduced and that plans are in motion to bring in Myra's nieces.
"This autumn will see the arrival of an extended branch of the McQueen family, as we meet Myra's nieces," Kirkwood told Inside Soap. "We are starting the casting process now, and I am so excited to be breathing new life into the show's most iconic family."
Last week, the C4 soap announced that Myra would be making a comeback after her brief return in January. Exact details are being kept under wraps, but it's believed that her reappearance is tied to Theresa McQueen’s (Jorgie Porter) comeback. Theresa is, of course, currently languishing in prison as she awaits trial for the murder of Calvin Valentine.
