The 34-year-old actress will star alongside Rachael Spence in theatre production 'Still No Idea' - a follow up to their previous show 'No Idea' - when she departs her role as Donna Yates in the BBC One soap.

Lisa wrote on Twitter: "Gonna be treading them boards again with @rachaelmspence :-). Can't wait. Xx (sic)"

The pair's production, which they have written alongside Lee Simpson, will be on in autumn this year at Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, at the Royal Court Theatre, as well as tour in Ipswich, Stockton, Hull, Exeter, and Birmingham.

A post on the Royal Court Theatre reads: "Best mates Lisa and Rachael are making a new show almost a decade after they created their first piece together.

"Back then they had no idea where to start so they went onto the streets and asked the public. What story should they tell? What characters should they play? When they saw Lisa in a wheelchair and Rachael not, what the public said was funny, jaw-dropping and ultimately heart-breaking. They made a show about it. It was called No Idea.

"Now people say the world has changed and things are looking up. There are more disabled people in the mainstream media, Lisa landed a big part on TV and disabled mates are getting regular auditions - happy days. So what kind of exciting stories are the TV professionals dreaming up for them?

"Still No Idea is the whole story (so far): the British public, the professional writers, the TV execs. Part verbatim theatre, part improv, part comedy sketch show, this is a raucous and mischievous exposé of good intentions gone bad and how sometimes no matter how hard we try, we still have absolutely no idea."

Production on the show will start in June, and the news comes just a month after Lisa announced she is leaving the soap.

Confirming the news, she wrote on Twitter: "Happy/sad :-) (sic)"
