The death of Lily McQueen (Lauren McQueen) is set to have far reaching consequences for those around her. As she makes plans to flee Hollyoaks with Romeo Quinn (Owen Warner) who is being framed for the murder of Mac, her family get worrying blood test results which show that she has contracted sepsis from self harming – and it is spreading to her organs.
As Prince (Malique Thompson-Dwyer), Diane (Alex Fletcher) and Tony (Nick Pickard) race to try and track Lily down, she becomes seriously unwell very fast and by the time she is reached, it is too late to save her.
And the consequences for both who loved her deeply – Prince and Romeo – not to mention her devastated aunt Diane are going to be huge as emotional scenes of grief and regret follow.
As blame looks set to fly, can they all rally round each other in the wake of the tragedy that has unfolded?
Speaking about her exit from the show, Lauren told Metro.co.uk: I was honoured to be given such a huge story that carried a lot of responsibility. Even though it was challenging and emotional I really hope I did it justice and hope it raises a lot of awareness to the audience.
I hope the storyline makes the audience aware of how serious self-harm is, and that the consequences can be life threatening. Sepsis is actually very common, which many people may not know what the symptoms are, and its something that needs to be treated very quickly. I hope it opens up a lot of conversations and encourages people to talk and get help if they relate to Lily.
