Speaking to Radio Times, Lynda, whose role as Lilly was brought to an end towards the end of series three after her character died from cancer, explained that Lilly could make a return through flashback scenes.

"When I did have that chat that day with those producers, they said that the plan was to bring me back in flashbacks – like Mel's husband, her dead husband," the actress explained.

However, she added that the plans were not yet set in stone, adding: "Nobody has said anything yet. As far as I know, Tara will look after Chloe. I'm pretty sure Annette [O'Toole] will come back as Hope. Nobody has any idea."

Viewers who binge-watched the Netflix series over the weekend spoke about how much they disliked Charmaine - while many added that her pregnancy doesn't make sense.

One person wrote: "And the award for the WORST CHARACTER EVER goes to... CHARMAINE. That woman is a piece of work. UGH. #VirginRiver," while another added: "It takes a hell of a talented actor/actress to make you hate their character so much, and that's EXACTLY what @le_hammer is—TALENTED! I still have 3 eps left so I can only imagine what those eps have in store for me."
