Ex-Hollyoaks star Jessica Ellis, whose long-running character Tegan Lomax was dramatically killed-off in the Channel 4/E4 soap's big Storm Week, has landed a new presenting job.

In this week's video update, Jessica joins regular presenter Jay to bring viewers reports on Knowsley Safari Park, the Liverpool Empire's plans to stage musical We Will Rock You and Christmas happenings at the Royal Albert Dock...and more!

Although some characters in Hollyoaks have infamously come-back-from-the-dead, it definitely looks like Tegan is a goner, after suffering terrible injuries after being hit by a falling tree during a terrible storm in episodes shown last month.

"I'm going to miss doing what I love everyday," says Jessica who played Tegan for five years. "I'm going to miss the crew. I'm going to miss the canteen staff. Like, I've grown up on Hollyoaks.

"I don't think the Lomax family are going to cope without me! I think they are going to crumble and disintegrate. I think Tegan was like the linchpin within the family. She was kind of like the mediator. So I think they will struggle without Tegan but there'll be lots of storyline and drama to come from her death."

Hollyoaks continues weeknights at 6:30pm on Channel 4 with a First Look at 7:00pm on E4
