The Archers actress will make her debut in the ITV soap this month as Moira, an office manager at Weatherfield Medical Centre.

She clashes with Liz McDonald (Beverley Callard) when she lands a job as a receptionist at the surgery.

A new image released by the ITV soap shows Moira heading out to a meeting leaving Liz in charge of reception.

With a queue of patients and a constantly ringing phone, Liz struggles to keep her temper.

How will battleaxe Moira react?

Patikas has played the long-suffering Helen Titchener in BBC Radio 4 drama The Archers for more than 15 years.

Last year the character was at the centre of a high-profile domestic abuse storyline.
