Hollyoaks has teased Lisa Loveday's shocking exit from the Channel 4 soap, after actress Rachel Adedeji quit the role.

From September 7 the Channel 4 programme will tell the story of Lisa's departure in a week of episodes.

Lisa will attend the wedding of her cousin Mitchell Deveraux to Scott Drinkwell, and is ready to make her relationship with Felix Westwood public.

However, she does not know that Felix is also having a relationship with her aunt Martine Deveraux and will subsequently leave the programme in a "shocking" turn of events, according to a statement from the soap.

Reflecting on her four year stint on the show, the former X Factor star said: "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."
