LIONESS and Manchester City player Lauren Hemp will appear in tonight's episode of Hollyoaks.
Lauren will play herself as she coaches Kathleen-Angel’s (Kiara Mellor) football team following her Euros win on Channel 4 soap.
Charlie Osborne (Charlie Behan) and Ella Cunningham (Erin
Palmer) are starstruck to have a Lioness teaching them skills.
The appearance came about after Hollyoaks recorded an additional scene the day after the Euros final to mark the win.
It featured Nadira and Juliet watching a replay of the end of the match and celebrating.

She said: “I love Hollyoaks and never miss it so when they posted the scene about us on their Instagram I then shared it on my story.
"Then my agent called and said that I had been invited to come and film a scene. I can’t tell you what I replied but I shouted it down the phone! It was like a dream.
"I had two dreams in life and they’ve both happened in the last few weeks.
"It was a surreal day and I was just thinking I can’t believe I am here, and people want my picture when I was really nervous but everyone was lovely.

"I’d love to come back again. I’d like to play a serial killer."
On her ambitions for life post-Euros, Lauren said: “One of our many goals as the Lionesses over the Euros was to inspire as many girls and boys as possible to be involved in football.
"It’s important we keep doing that so if you’re playing football then keep doing it or give it a go if you have never tried.
"I had many people in the past tell me that I couldn’t do something but its important that you believe in yourself, you don’t listen to anyone.
