British women’s soccer star Lauren Hemp will be a special guest on Hollyoaks.
Lioness and the Manchester City forward will play her as a football coach on the Channel 4 show, following her historic win at the 2022 Euros last month.
England overcame Germany with an explosive 2-1 win at Wembley Stadium on 31 July.
Hemp will coach Kathleen-Angel’s soccer team, with characters Charlie Osborne and Ella Cunningham, who begin with a Lioness teaching them skills.
Her appearance comes after Hollyoaks recorded an additional scene the day after the Euro final to mark the victory.
It features Nadira and Juliet watching the replay of the end of the match and celebrating.
“I love Hollyoaks and never miss it so when they posted a scene of us on their Instagram, I shared it on my story,” said Hemp.
“Then my agent called and said I had been invited to come and shoot a scene.
“I can’t tell you what I answered but I yelled it down the phone!
“It was like a dream. I’ve had two dreams in my life and they’ve both happened in the past few weeks. “

She added: “It was a surreal day and I just thought I couldn’t believe I was here, and everyone wanted my picture… I was really nervous but everyone was so lovely.
“I would love to come back again. I want to play a serial killer.”
Hemp, who said her favorite Hollyoaks character is Mercedes McQueen, said her post-Euro goal is to continue to inspire as many girls and boys to get involved as possible.
She will appear on Wednesday’s episode of Hollyoaks on E4 at 7pm and Thursday on Channel 4 at 6:30pm.
