Hollyoaks gets a new Blessing

Hollyoaks is welcoming a new regular cast member, Modupe Adeyeye, who will play Blessing Chamber.

According to Digital Spy, Blessing will come in as a strip club glass collector, who Dennis Savage (Joe Tracini) meets when he visits the club.

Blessing hasn't had a lot of good luck in the past and her job and the flat above the bar are all she has, but Dennis will accidentally put all of that in danger when he gets her into trouble with her boss.

Modupe has previously made a soap appearance in EastEnders, where she had a brief storyline setting the scene for her longer run in the spin-off series EastEnders: E20 as Faith Olubunmi.

She has also appeared in BBC dramas Our Girl and My Murder.

Modupe has already started filming for Hollyoaks and her first scenes are due to air on the Channel 4 soap on February 21.
