The actress, who plays Steph Cunningham, will bow out of the show after 11 years in November and several of her co-stars have paid tribute to her contribution to the Channel 4 soap.
According to PA, Jorgie Porter (Theresa McQueen) said: "She was like an ultimate original. I used to watch her before I was in it and think, 'Oh my god she's hilarious'. And then to meet her, she's the nicest girl ever and good luck to her, for the stuff she's doing, 'cause she'll keep working."
Gemma Merna, who plays Carmel Valentine, added: "She was Hollyoaks. I think everyone was very emotional. We had a charity do at Chester race course and she sang and everyone was saying she was going and everyone was getting all welled up then because she is honestly one of the nicest girls you could ever meet.
"She's a big part of our working environment, everyone was devastated."
Porter added: "Even the crew and the staff were all like that and everyone came to her leaving party in fancy dress."
