Loui and Zoe to quit Hollyoaks

Hollyoaks stars Loui Batley and Zoe Lister will be leaving the show, the soap’s official website has confirmed.

Loui, who plays Sarah Barnes, and Zoe Lister, who stars as Zoe Carpenter, will make their exits before the end of the year.

But it will not be an easy ride as one of the girls will be involved in a ‘tragic curtain call’, the website reported.

Zoe, 27, who has been in the soap for three years, told the site: “I’ve had a fantastic time in the show and have worked with some amazing people.

“I’m very sad to leave but feel that it’s time to try new things.”

Loui, 22, said of her four years in the Channel 4 series: “I’ve learned so much, met lots of lovely people and made some incredible friends.

“It’s been a massive part of my life and will be a sad chapter to turn the page on.”

Both actresses were at the centre of a major storyline earlier this year when Sarah and Zoe had a brief fling.
