Hollyoaks actress Rachel Shenton recently had a chat with Digital Spy about Mitzeee's role in the new series of Hollyoaks Later, which launches tonight.

For all the gossip on Mitzeee causing mischief at the stag do and how the glamour girl finds herself in serious danger, read our main interview with Rachel.

Here, though, Soap Scoop presents a bonus Q&A with Rachel focusing on Warren's upcoming departure among other topics…

Is the danger surrounding Warren part of the appeal for Mitzeee?
"I think it is, yeah. I can't say whether it always will be, but at the moment, it definitely is. She doesn't like to play it safe, does she?"

Are you sad that Jamie Lomas, who plays Warren, is leaving the show?
"Oh yeah, of course - we've worked together for a long time now. But he's happy with the decision that he's made and it's the right one for him, so that's all that matters. I'll be gutted to see him go, as we've had a really good time."

3079: Nancy and Mitzeee
Could the letter that Mitzeee gave to Nancy about Warren and Louise come into play again?
"Who knows? I'm sure it will come up again, let's face it - there's a missing letter so it'll probably be mentioned again. It has to be!"

Warren's departure will probably mean a new chapter for Mitzeee…
"Yes, and it's really exciting - there's been a few talks about what's going to happen and what direction the character's going to go in. It's all very positive and I'm looking forward to it."

After another year of change for Hollyoaks, what's the mood like on set at the moment?
"The mood on set is actually very, very good. There has been a lot of changes, but I think naturally everyone's in good spirits at the moment. We're all looking forward to the future."

Jeff Rawle in Doc Martin
Mitzeee and Silas haven't really had any scenes together, so could that change?
"He's a scary man, isn't he? I've had a few recently, which has been quite nice. Jeff is an amazing actor, so I'd love to work with him more."

Do we have any more scenes coming up showing your character as Ann rather than Mitzeee?
"You do, but I love Mitzeee! I think Mitzeee is her alter ego that she puts on to stop people seeing Ann, and I really like that about her. I like it when we flip between the two, but I would hate to see Mitzeee go!"

Finally, would you like to have any more scenes with Emmett Scanlan?
"I would love to - I loved the Britzeee thing! Me and Emmett had a really positive response to that, so fingers crossed there can be more of that in the future."
