Lisa Loveday’s explosive exit from Hollyoaks has been revealed as Rachel Adedeji bows out of the soap after four years.
In upcoming scenes, viewers will see Lisa attend her cousin Mitchell’s (Imran Adams) wedding to Scott (Ross Adams).
Feeling the love, she feels ready to go public with her and Felix’s romance. But unknown to her, the womaniser has also been seeing Lisa’s Aunt Martine (Kelle Bryan).
While exact details are being kept a mystery so you can watch the dramatic scenes play out on TV, what we can tell you is that a shocking turn of events will prompt Lisa to leave Hollyoaks.
The scenes will also say goodbye to actress Rachel, who joined the soap in April 2016. Party animal Lisa has been at the centre of many gripping storylines including her discovery that she was abducted as a child, her affair with Mac Nightingale while dating his son Nathan, and her involvement in a hit and run and which led to her being blackmailed by killer Cameron Campell.
After going through all that we’re sure Lisa will be glad to live a quiet life for a bit!
Rachel said of her departure: ‘I have had a fantastic time playing the role of Lisa Loveday. I was blessed to have met and worked alongside some of the most talented and professional people during my time on the show.
‘Hollyoaks was an amazing opportunity for me to learn and grow as an actress and I am truly grateful.
‘As much as I have enjoyed my time on the show, I have chosen to move on. I am looking forward to all opportunities that now await me.’
News of Rachel’s exit first surfaced amid a racism row as she criticised the soap’s response to the Black Lives Matter movement.
The actress, supported by her cast mates, listed the shortcomings on set including a lack of diversity on the directing team and horrific slurs from a member of production. Hollyoaks later launched a guardian scheme to try and tackle inequality.
Meanwhile Channel 4 has revealed it will be airing an all Black, hour long episode of Hollyoaks as part of their newly announced Black Takeover Day.
The episode will be written, directed and performed by the soap’s black talent.
