Get her out of that box!

Even if you don't watch Fair City, you're probably aware that the character Katy (Amilia Clarke Stewart) has been under lock and key for what feels like 65 years. Although a quick fact check will reveal it's been 11 months, which is still 10 months too long.

Despite public pressure on RTE to release Katy and put her out of her misery, the kidnapping story looks set to continue for another few weeks. Perhaps even months or years? We don't know what to expect anymore.

On Wednesday morning, Fianna Fail TD Michael McGrath paid a visit to the Carrigstown set to use his political muscle to influence the storyline and free Katy.

"While out at RTE this morning, I visited the Fair City set to see if I could free Katy - no joy, I'm afraid," he joked on Twitter.

Although, with her brother now knowing the truth, it looks as though Katy could be closer than ever to freedom.

This week, the O'Brien family will finally discover their daughter's fate after her brother Emmet's dramatic confrontation with kidnapper Ciaran.

Speaking of the storyline, actress Amilia Clarke Stewart said she's "proud" of the work that has been put in.

"I don't think I've ever been more nervous in my life because it's been so fast-paced and love it or hate it – people are interested to see how it turns out, the figures have been huge for it," she told the Herald.

"I'm really excited and really proud of the work we've put in and I can't wait to see the reaction to it. I get butterflies just thinking about it."
