LINDLEY actress Zoe Lucker will pucker up for success in the new series of ITV's raunchiest drama.

Stunner Zoe, 30, will reprise her role as superbitch Tanya Turner in the fourth series of Footballers' Wives.

The new series, due to air on Thursday, has been further boosted by a series of sponsorship deals with lipcare brand Softlips.

The new series of the drama, which previously pulled in 7m viewers, will also feature Footballers' Wives Extra Time on ITV2, showing the sultry night-time antics of the glamorous cast.

Both the main show and the ITV2 production will feature trailers for the lipcare brand.

Ella Fletcher Senior, sponsorship and branded content executive at ITV sales, said: "Footballers' Wives is a phenomenal success.

"The show delivers fantastic mass audiences and is an integral part of our peak-time schedule.

"Softlips has a fantastic fit with the show and the sponsorship will undoubtedly drive awareness."
