Hollyoaks star confirms soap exit – and has already filmed her last scenes

Hollyoaks star Maddy Smedley has confirmed that she is leaving the show, and her last scenes have already been filmed.

The actress rose to fame on the BBC hit show The Traitors before landing the role of talent agent Faye Fuller on the Cheshire based soap.

During her short time on the programme, Maddy has been working alongside Owen Warner, who plays Romeo, to help the troubled influencer Rayne, who is in a relationship with Romeo.

Despite Rayne's concerns about social media, as she was worried that her sinister side may be shown on TV, Faye has been determined to get her on the Hollyoaks reality show Love Cave.

However, the 31 year has taken to Instagram to confirm that she has now left her role, and her final scenes have now aired.

She shared a clip of herself on the award-winning soap and wrote: "FAYE FULLER over and out dallyn! Thanks for having me @hollyoaksofficial, unreal experience. Best bit as well was my little girl was there with me the whole way, mental."

Fans of the show were quick to share their disappointment at her departure in the comments section.

One person said: "Absolute Icon!! Loved every episode you were in, and we are all so sad to see you go."

While another commented: "Awww sad you’ve gone. I actually loved you! You were amazing."

Someone else penned: "ICON FAYA, you have absolutely amazing, and you have absolutely smashed it, and I hope that you come back one day lots of love and FAYA FULLER is one of my new favourite characters."

Finally, another follower wrote: "Noooo, hopefully Faye can return one day! All the best for the future @madelynsmedley and good luck with your newborn, you will smash being a mum!"

It comes just days after Maddy announced the birth of her daughter with partner Tom Greenwood.

She posted a series of sweet photos of the little one on Instagram, confirming her name, as Maddy wrote: "Welcome to the world Shelby Rae, love you so much already."

The comments section of the post was quickly full of well wishes from a number of famous faces.

One of those people was The Traitors host Claudia Winkleman, who shared several love heart emojis.

Coronation Street's Alexandra Mardell wrote: "Maddy! So so chuffed for you all! So beautiful! Can’t wait to meet her! All the love to you three."

Fans may also remember Maddy from her short stint on EastEnders in 2021, where she played Rita.
