So her X Factor days of 2007 might be long gone, but it looks like Louis Walsh might have had a point when he said "you look like an actress, you sound like an actress" during here audition, seeing as she's not a full on soap actress.

Wait, what? What do you mean he didn't say that?

ANYWHO, Rachel appears in the latest Spring trailer for Hollyoaks as the "real" Lisa Loveday, the lost daughter of Simone and Louis who believed they'd been reunited with her, only to find to they've been living with an imposter.

Speaking of the role, Rachel commented: ""I am so excited to have joined Hollyoaks and be part of the Loveday family who are brilliant actors and already feel like an extension of my own family. It is quite a pressure to be coming in as the real Lisa Loveday as she is such an anticipated arrival in Hollyoaks village.

"I think it's fair to say that the audience have hoped that we would at some point get to meet the real Lisa and although I can't say too much, the fallout is big and far-reaching. What has happened to Lisa so far in her life has turned her into a tough cookie and it has been great to bring that to life on screen."

EXCITING.
