Feisty, single-minded, and forever with a scam up her sleeve, Marlena McQueen, or simply ‘Nana’, is a Hollyoaks legend.

McQueen to the core, her apples certainly didn't fall far from the tree. Yep, from trying it on with her grandaughter's boyfriend, to robbing her own house for insurance; outrageous behaviour and Nana McQueen go hand-in-hand.

But despite Nana's prickly exterior, there's a big, loving heart hiding behind the gold chains and lashings of lycra. We might not know what she’s got up her brightly-coloured sleeve next, but one things for sure: there's never a dull moment when Nana's about.
