Talk about coming back with a bang.
Actress Charley Webb, who plays Debbie, left the show for a short break whilst she had her second child with her fiancé and co-star Matthew Wolfenden, who plays David Metcalfe.
Opening up about coming back after taking maternity leave, the actress said: "I definitely have mixed feelings about coming back. I'm excited but also a little apprehensive about leaving the baby.
"I've missed being here. I've missed the crew a a lot. I'm looking forward to jumping straight in at the deep end!"
