Hollyoaks spoilers for the week of Monday, September 7 follow.
Lisa Loveday is set for an explosive exit from Hollyoaks when the soap returns from its summer hiatus next month.
Rachel Adedeji will make her final appearances during an exciting week of new Hollyoaks first-look episodes on E4 from Monday, September 7 as part of Mitchell Deveraux (Imran Adams) and Scott Drinkwell's (Ross Adams) wedding.
Lisa will be ready to go public with her romance with Felix Westwood (Richard Blackwood) at the ceremony, totally unaware that he's secretly been dating her aunt Martine Deveraux (Kéllé Bryan) too.
By the end of the week, shocking events will transpire that lead to Lisa saying goodbye to her dysfunctional family and friends in Hollyoaks. But what pushes her over the edge?
"I have had a fantastic time playing the role of Lisa Loveday," Adedeji said. "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."
Adedeji had decided to leave the soap and filmed her exit scenes before she raised concerns about prejudice on the set of Hollyoaks. Soap bosses have subsequently announced workplace policy changes designed to ensure no such incidents occur again.
"Four years ago we were thrilled to cast X Factor star Rachel Adedeji as leading lady Lisa Loveday. Rachel made an immediate impact delivering impeccable performances with superstar charisma," producer Bryan Kirkwood said.
"I would like to thank Rachel for creating such a memorable and much-loved character. She will be very much missed."
The Deverauxs are set to lose another family member soon as well, with Imran Adams announcing last week that he will quit his role as Mitchell Deveraux.
Hollyoaks returns with all-new episodes on Monday, September 7 at 6.30pm on Channel 4, followed by a first-look episode at 7pm on E4.
