Speaking about her return, Claire admitted it was a challenge keeping the news hidden from much of her friends and family.

She said: ‘It was top secret. I told my mum and dad and my partner. But my name was secret on call sheets and scripts. I had to park round the back so fans at the front couldn’t see me. ­Everybody kept it really quiet.’

‘I’m a Yorkshire lass anyway so it is like coming home. And the house hasn’t changed a bit.

‘I have been surprised at the reaction. But it is also daunting being up there in the middle of it, the centre of attention.’
