Exclusive: 'Hollyoaks' unveils new character Lindsey Butterfield

Billed as "feisty, determined and driven", Lindsey is more than capable of holding her own with the outspoken Roscoe boys.

Lindsey's romance with Joe is a strong one as he regards her as the love of his life, while family matriarch Sandy (Gillian Taylforth) enjoys having another female living in the house.

The new arrival will also be working at the local hospital as a junior doctor, which means sharing plenty of scenes with schemer Doctor Browning (Joseph Thompson) as the pair become colleagues.

Hollyoaks airs Lindsey's first scenes on Monday, June 3 at 6.30pm on Channel 4.
