Stephanie’s time on the show saw as many ups and downs, as she was dismissed by bosses back in July 2015 after arriving on set under the influence of alcohol. 

However, all appeared to have been forgiven three years later, when Stephanie announced in May 2018 that she was returning to the long-running show. 

Stephanie had been part of the Channel 4 soap since she was 16, after finding fame on Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s show Over The Rainbow.

Back in December 2019, Stephanie admitted she hasn’t returned to Hollyoaks because she ‘relapsed’ and tried to take her own life and she slowly felt her body was ‘giving up’.

She wrote at the time: ‘I haven’t been back to work because the real truth is I relapsed & tried to kill my self. This was a suicide video I was leaving behind saying I’m sorry and cannot continue.

‘I can still feel the pain in my chest when I watch this, it’s really hard to watch. I relapsed after a long time sober, I did so well and I am proud of my self for that.

‘Because of a build up of events that happened I should have made a completely different decision with certain things & stood by everything I worked so hard for & my self worth, BUT I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason as it lead me to my diagnosis.

‘I was working on something which I went through in real life that brought up a lot of pain for me, I lost my truth & self worth, I hated my self & didn’t feel good enough anymore, it’s hard being a single mum, my uncle died & I was battling badly with my mental health without any help or medication & I finally broke.

‘I knew I was breaking for a good while before this, but I was trying my absolute BEST to be ok, but I wasn’t My heart couldn’t take anymore pain after the horrendous DV relationship which I have trauma and PTSD from & still hasn’t dealt with properly.

‘I felt like life was unfair, I couldn’t breath, I was anxious, why was all this pain happening to me when all i wanted desperately was to be happy. 

‘I was in hospital a week before but I slowly felt my body giving up, I lost feeling in both arms & then my legs … I was rushed into hospital by blue light & straight into intensive care, if I was left another hour I would have died.’ [sic]
