Modupe Adeyeye: Hollyoaks

Date - 20 February, 2014, All News Television

Today marks the début of Modupe Adeyeye as new series regular Blessing Chambers in Hollyoaks on E4 at 7pm.

Blessing works as a glass collector in the strip club she lives above and we’ll quickly learn that she hasn’t had the easiest ride up to now.

Hollyoaks is a long-running British soap opera, first broadcast on Channel 4 on 23 October 1995. It was originally devised by Phil Redmond, who had also devised the Channel 4 soap Brookside. The programme is set in a fictional suburb of Chester called Hollyoaks, and features a large cast of characters primarily aged between 16 and 35. Beginning with a cast of just seven major characters in 1995, the serial now has approximately 50 main cast members. Hollyoaks has a high cast turnover in comparison with other British soaps; as of December 2012, just thirteen characters have spent 5 years or longer on the show.
