It pulled in huge audiences, with an average of 10 million tuning in to the second series last year.

Fans were transfixed as they saw Gemma go out of her way to ruin ex-husband Simon's new marriage, even bedding him as part of her plan to continue to get revenge for him sleeping with their close friend's 20-something daughter. 

The series ended on a cliffhanger after their teenage son Tom ran away, leaving viewers hoping for a third series. 

However, Suranne recently said she was too busy to think about reprising the role, especially as she is currently starring in a play, Frozen.

"I'll look at next year when it comes, because I've got a two-year-old as well!"
