Blessing Chambers (Modupe Adeyeye) is to cause Dennis (Joe Tracini) fresh concern next week when she collapses. In scenes to be shown on Wednesday 20 August, Blessing will be seen self harming again in the run-up to her life-altering operation, only to then pass out during a party in the Dog.
The shock moment comes after Blessing's visit to her parents doesn't go to plan. After returning to the village, she cuts herself once more, but covers up her wound when she goes to meet with her consultant in preparation for her op the following day.
Later on, it's revealed that Dennis has thrown Blessing a surprise party, but celebrations turn to concern when she keels over in the middle of the pub.
Hollyoaks has been exploring Blessing's quest to say goodbye to her former identity as Tyson ever since she originally confided in Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) that she is a transgender woman.
