Last year it was rumoured that Candice might be returning to Coronation Street. And now actor Nikki Sanderson who played Candice Stowe in Coronation Street has joined Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.
Nikki will join Hollyoaks as Maxine Minniver – sister to wannabe glamour model Ann ‘Mitzee’ Minniver. Maxine is described as “a confident, lively, impulsive, flirtatious bombshell, with boundless energy and a penchant for living life on the edge - and to the full… a fearless risk-taker, Maxine is street savvy, witty, ambitious and can spot an opportunity a mile-off ” So, not too different from Candice, then.
Nikki said: “Being a member of the Hollyoaks team has so far been an absolute pleasure and I am excited about what the future holds for my character. I feel very lucky to be part of such a wonderful show and to be working with an amazing team.”
Her first appearance on the soap will come in Monday 5 November’s “first look” edition on E4.
