Bafta-nominated actress Anne-Marie Duff is set to return to the Channel 4 hit show Shameless, which launched the career of Duff and her now-husband James McAvoy, as it comes to an end in 2013, reports BBC News.

She will reprise her role as the eldest daughter Fiona who she played in the first and second season. She went on to appear in BBC One’s The Virgin Queen and last year’s BBC Two series Parade’s End. Duff was nominated for a best supporting actress Bafta for her role in 2009′s Nowhere Boy playing opposite Aaron Johnson as John Lennon‘s mum.

Creator Paul Abbott announced in October, 2012 that this would be the last hoorah for Frank Gallagher (David Threlfall) – the beer guzzling single father of seven children (initially six) in Manchester, England – after 11 series of the BAFTA award-winning drama, reports the Daily Mail.

Abbott told the Mail, “Its 10th anniversary seems a fitting time to shut the book.”
