She added that she could see Florence returning, saying: "Maybe for a special episode, why not! Maybe not next year because it'd be too soon. People are going to be like, 'What is she doing? Leaving, coming back, leaving, coming back. Like, girl!' But maybe in a few years, yeah, why not."

The star also opened up about staying for the first four episodes of season 11 so that the audience received closure on Florence and Neville's relationship. "Series ten was so good and we ended the series on a big cliffhanger between Neville and Florence, but I couldn't not come back, it would have been unfair," she said.
