Yip, who has no previous professional credits, steps into the shoes of a “confident, excitable and carefree” character here, with Shing Lin “certainly a handful as she becomes the life of the party among the Hollyoaks’ teens”.

Her first episode is scheduled Monday Dec 12 on E4 and Tuesday Dec 13 on channel 4.

In a statement, the actress addressed her casting and said, “I’m very grateful to be joining the Chen-Williams family. The teens and I have worked on some pretty fun scenes; we’re so excited to have our characters grow and watch the dynamics of any given relationship change around Shing Lin’s intrusion. She will bring a touch of East Asian familiarity to your screens.”
