Hollyoaks star Hollie-Jay Bowes has revealed she is quitting the show in six months.
The actress, who’s played kooky Michaela McQueen since 2006, wrote on Twitter: “This past 4 years have been incredible but I think it’s time to find myself again! I’m officially leaving Hollyoaks in the next 6 months!”
Meanwhile, co-star Kris Deedigan is to film his final scenes on Wednesday.
The actor, who plays teacher Des Townsend, told his followers on Twitter: “And now the end is near and so I face the final curtain. My last day on Hollyoaks.”
His departure comes a day after Gerard McCarthy, Melissa Walton and Kevin Sacre also completed work on the show.
A string of characters are being written out this year under new producer Paul Marquess.
