“She couldn’t tell me much about it so said okay then, looked him up and I was like oh my god, Cameron, he’s a big deal. So I went and met him and he basically said that he was thinking of bringing Waterloo Road back, and I had to act cool at the time and say let me have a think about it, but no, I was over the moon.”

Katie Griffiths, who plays Chlo Charles in the drama, also reflected about the announcement, saying:”It’s been wonderful. It feels like coming back but also everything is different. The set’s different. The classes are brand new, there’s a really exciting cast and some returning faces. So it’s been a bit of everything but it’s been lovely. ”

Angela Griffin will also be reprising her role as Kim Campbell but this time with a promotion – as Waterloo Road’s Headteacher.

Speaking about Kim’s rise to the top job, Kim commented:” I found out that Kim was going to be head quite early on and it kind of blew my mind, because well it’s just prestigious, innit!

“To be the head of Waterloo Road. There’s been 10 series and to add to the shelf of heads felt like a real honour and a real privilege.”
