Theresa McQueen says goodbye to Hollyoaks – Jorgie Porter’s final scenes air tonight!

"Viewers will have to watch to see whether it really is the end of Theresa!" says the actress


Hollyoaks favourite Theresa McQueen is to leave the Channel 4 soap tonight, with soap bosses promising “an emotional twist of events” in the run-up to her departure.


Since her arrival in 2008, Theresa has been caught up in no end of drama, including the murder of Calvin Valentine, a teen pregnancy storyline, becoming the target of a serial killer and jailbreak.

Actress Jorgie Porter, who first debuted on Hollyoaks at the age of 20, said of her exit: “I have loved playing Theresa McQueen and am so sad to leave Hollyoaks, but I have hugely enjoyed my exit plot and viewers will have to watch tonight to see whether it really is the end of Theresa!

“When I look back, the crew and staff at Hollyoaks have had such a major part in my life from youth to young adulthood and I will miss working with everyone.

“Being on the show has led to me working with fantastic actors and directors and making friends for life. I laughed every single day on set.”

Executive producer Bryan Kirkwood added: “Theresa McQueen will always have a special place in my heart and those of the audience.

“Jorgie made Theresa pocket-sized soap icon and is a ball of energy on set. I know that she will go on to do great things and the cast and crew will miss her greatly.”


You can see Theresa’s final Hollyoaks appearance in tonight’s first-look episode on E4 at 7pm.
