Sally St Claire is a no-nonsense kinda lady who arrived in the village as the new head honcho at Hollyoaks High. She's defo not one of those chummy teachers who extends deadlines and lets you sing 5SOS in class.

Kids and colleagues may panic when they spot her marching down the corridor, ready to dish out a sharp put-down (“Tuck your shirt in, you’re not Kanye West!”), but her iron-fist attitude is actually masking a softer, protective side which reveals itself around her son, John Paul McQueen...

Since birth, Sally St Claire has identified as a woman, and she’s lived as that gender since she was 22. Before then, she was known as Iain Naismith. Iain grew up in Aberdeen, and he always knew he was different.

Before he decided to transition, Iain met Myra McQueen and they struck up an unlikely friendship... Low and behold two weeks later Myra was preggers with JP and Iain ran for the hills!

Mrs St Claire accepted a position at Hollyoaks High to, in her own words, “seek out the bad apples”, but she also wants to prove herself as a parent to John Paul, if he'll let her in...
