ENGLAND’S Euro 2022 star Lauren Hemp is set to make a cameo in hit soap Hollyoaks.
Lioness and Manchester City player Lauren, 22, will appear on the E4 show on Wednesday at 7pm, playing herself.
In this role, Lauren will coach Kathleen-Angel’s (played by Kiara Mellor) football team, with two of the soap’s characters, Charlie Osborne (played by Charlie Behan) and Ella Cunningham (played by Erin Palmer), excited that they she teaches.
Speaking of her role in the hit soap, Lauren said, “I love Hollyoaks and I never miss them. When they posted the scene above us on their Instagram, I then shared it on my story.
“Then my agent called and said I’d been invited to film a scene. I can’t tell you what I answered, but I yelled it into the phone! It was like a dream. I had two dreams in life and they both happened in the last few weeks.”
Lauren described her day of shooting as “surreal” and said she couldn’t believe she was showing up there.
She added: “And people want my picture as I was really nervous but everyone was nice. I will gladly come again. I would like to play a serial killer.”
The soccer star, whose favorite character is Mercedes McQueen, appeared after Hollyoaks filmed an extra scene to mark England’s Euro victory and in it Juliet and Nadira see a replay of the epic game.
Lauren also spoke about her life and aspirations after Euros, adding: “One of our many goals as Lionesses at Euros was to get as many girls and boys interested in football as possible and it’s important that we do that keep doing If you play soccer then keep going or give it a try if you’ve never tried it.
“I’ve had a lot of people in the past tell me there’s something I can’t do, but it’s important that you believe in yourself and don’t listen to anyone. I think this summer proved that girls can play football too.”
Lauren will appear on the Wednesday, August 10th episode of E4 at 7:00 p.m. and the C4 episode on Thursday, August 11th at 6:30 p.m
