when heat went to hollyoaks
Back in 2011 – in peak solo Cheryl era – heat had the honour and privilege of writing our very own
Hollyoaks episode. Amazing, right? And Rachel Shenton was the best Cheryl-shaped gift we could have ever hoped for.
Created by heat ’s editors, the episode saw Rachel’s character Mitzeee trying to fool the residents of ’Oaks into believing she was the Fight
For This Love singer herself. Dressed in Cheryl’s iconic military outfit and with a perfect Geordie lilt, Rachel uttered the line, “It’s not a soap opera, it’s me life.” Funny how things turn out, eh?
