Higson was cast in the Channel 4 soap earlier this year, taking on the role of Seth Costello - the youngest son of ex-footballer Carl and former model Heidi.
In an interview with the Inside Soap Yearbook 2011, Stenson revealed how much she enjoyed working with Higson before she filmed her final scenes as terminally-ill Steph Roach.
She explained: "I'll tell you who I absolutely adore - Miles Higson. He plays Seth. He's so cute, I could just eat him!
"Whenever I've had a banter with him on set or in the green room, he's just been so lovely. He's really enjoying it and he's such a good laugh."
Meanwhile, asked whether she plans to keep watching Hollyoaks, the actress replied: "Yeah. I've heard a lot of things that are going to be happening and it all sounds incredibly exciting. And I want to see what my mates are getting up to as well!"
Stenson is currently appearing in a production of Legally Blonde: The Musical in London's West End.
