Despite her own name, Lauren will play a character called Lily Drinkwell, the sweet and caring niece of Diane O’Conor and cousin of Scott.

Lauren said: “I was over the moon when I found out I was joining the cast of Hollyoaks. Being from Liverpool I feel so lucky to be working in my home town and being part of such a successful show with cast I’ve looked up to since I was 12. I couldn’t have been cast in a better family!"

Lily arrives in Hollyoaks after tragically losing her mother and Hollyoaks says that although she has a very soft nature she 'is one tough cookie and a little mischievous like her Aunty Diane'.

In her recent Hollygoss,, below, Lauren discusses her previous roles in the 4 o’clock club, Ordinary Lies and feature film The Violators. Lauren has also just featured on screen in the BBC’s 6 Wives, in which she played Henry VIII’s fifth wife, Katherine Howard.
