Hollyoaks is getting ready to give Juliet Nightingale a proper sendoff in upcoming scenes.


The character played by Niamh Blackshaw died months after being diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. Juliet's partner Peri Lomax (Ruby O'Donnell) and her family have been trying to plan the funeral according to her wishes, but her brother James (Gregory Finnegan) insists on a traditional service.

Meanwhile, Rayne Royce's (Jemma Donovan) jealousy over Romeo (Owen Warner) and Peri getting closer takes a toll on her.
