Katherine Kelly hints at return to Mr Selfridge

The actress was on maternity leave during series three but tells Twitter "Lady Mae might make a comeback" next year


When Mr Selfridge returned to our screens last night, there was something missing. An unexplained absence that left Twitter scratching its chin… 


Katherine Kelly’s Lady Mae Loxley was last seen fleeing her evil husband (Aidan Mcardle), but while he played a major part in yesterday’s episode, his former spouse was nowhere to be seen.

We were soon brought up to speed by Loxley himself as it emerged the pair had divorced with Mae’s legal fees paid by her friend Harry Selfridge, but as for her whereabouts? We were none the wiser.

Former Coronation Street actress Kelly – who gave birth to daughter Orla last March – took to Twitter to explain her absence, thrilling her disappointed fans with the suggestion we haven’t seen the last of the former Lady Loxley…

And, in the meantime, there are plenty of glamorous women gracing Mr Selfridge’s third series as Zoe Wanamaker and Kara and Hannah Tointon all join the cast. 


Mr Selfridge continues next Sunday at 9:00pm on ITV. Take a sneak peek behind-the-scenes below…
