The actress, who played Del Dingle in Emmerdale and Andrea Beckett in Coronation Street, will be starring alongside two fellow Weatherfield alumni.

Leading the cast are Catherine Tyldesley, aka feisty Eva Price in the ITV soap, and Shayne Ward, who portrayed troubled Aidan Connor.

Hayley has been sharing snaps of herself with the cast , which also include Claire Sweeney and Emily Atack’s comic mum Kate Robbins.

Hayley wrote on twitter: “Been filming something amazing this past week! With the most amazing cast and crew! Feeling very grateful at the moment.”

The drama sees Shayne playing an ex detective who decides to change careers and become a cruise singer.

But he soon finds himself having to solve a series on murders on board with the help of a fellow officer played by Catherine.

Catherine said when her role was announced: “Being reunited with Shayne on a Mediterranean cruise has been so much fun and this series has been a joy to make and I’m sure will be a joy to watch – who doesn’t love a cruise?”

It is unknown what role Hayley will play in the eight-part drama but in recent years she has done a lot of stage work rather than television.

She starred in Thoroughly Modern Millie and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

She is a single mum now after revealing she has split from the father of her child earlier this year.

The brunette announced she is now a single mum to her son Jasper as she celebrated her first Mother’s Day alone – after her life was “turned upside down”.

The Dancing on Ice winner got engaged to estate agent Adrian just weeks after revealing she was pregnant back in 2019.

Revealing they were no longer together, Hayley wrote: “This Mother’s Day is different for me as I’m now a single mum.

“Mine and Jasper’s life has been turned upside down over the past few months but I realise the best thing to come out of this is Jasper. For he is all I need… and all I’ve ever wanted.

“He makes me so happy! I never set out to be a single parent… but I DID set out to be the best mum I could be, and that hasn’t changed. I’m so lucky I get to be his mummy.
