Former Eternal star Kelle Bryan is joining Hollyoaks.

The singer is set to join the Channel 4 soap in October, where she will play the secret sister of Simone Loveday (Jacqueline Boatswain) called Martine Deveraux.

Martine will arrive on Leela Lomax (Kirsty-Leigh Porter) and Louis Loveday’s (Karl Collins) doorstep when she shows up in the village to drop a bombshell.

On the news Bryan said: “I watched Hollyoaks back in the day and loved it, so to be joining the team is just fab!

“It’s a stellar cast of actors and we are simply having a blast working together. Playing Miss Deveraux is such fun – she says and does all of the things I would never dare to do.

“I’m blessed to have some diverse and thought-provoking storylines that I am personally passionate about and looking forward to getting my teeth stuck into. Enjoy the ride!”
