Lizzie Roper played Dee Valley Police Station detective Sam in the Channel 4 soap for 111 episodes until she met a tragic end eight years ago.

Sam died in a fatal hit and run alongside her husband Danny Lomax (Stephen Billington) back in 2014.

At the time, Lizzie didn't seem to be too happy when she learned that her character was being killed off.

Speaking to Inside Soap magazine in 2015, Lizzie said the show could have got far more from Sam and Danny.

"The crash itself was fantastic and really fun, but I think there was more they could have got out of Sam and Danny," she told the publication.

"They had a huge amount of sympathy and people were really into them, so the shock of their deaths worked for a couple of episodes – but ultimately, the show lost two big characters."

The star also admit she wouldn't turn down the opportunity to work in Soapland again although she is yet to pop up in any rival serial dramas.

Although Leslie did appeared in Boy Meets Girl as Jackie for six episodes in 2015.

Lizzie's other acting credits include Casualty, The Bill, Family Affairs, Shameless, Holby City, Coronation Street, Waterloo Road, Silent Witness, Call the Midwife, Doctors and Human.

Earlier this year, the soap star stepped down from presenting the mid-morning show on BBC Radio Guernsey and was replaced by Lynne Coleman.

Hollyoaks airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 6.30pm followed by first-look episodes on E4 at 7pm
