Volunteers speak to the Hollyoaks team. During that time there would be healing time and that’s fast now as they now use enemas the morning of the surgery. Do you and the rest of the team feel a responsibility with that? My good friend Ngunan, who’s a radio DJ, inspired the first incarnation, the funky smart girl with heart and attitude. I can’t help but get the feeling the person or persons advising are better qualified to talk about self-harm than they are about GRS. I can honestly say I have never cut my arms in my life – other than by accident – even at my lowest ebb.

The other female members don’t have trans storylines. Blessing is trying to keep everything under control, but every time her boss sees her, it always looks like she’s the one causing trouble. Here is the moment this happened.

She’s not transgender herself and that is definitely something that was not taken lightly, but she’s an actress, and a good one, so I don’t think she will disappoint. And found a pretty good reason to do so.

Faith also appeared briefly in EastEnders itself as a taster for the spinoff series. Dennis is looking at flights on his laptop.

Hollyoaks’ Blessing Chambers to reveal she used to be a man called Tyson

That’s now going to worry parents that their kids might be trans if they cut themselves. This also applies to trans men with phalloplasty of course!

And if those considering this path come ans speak to us as a result of this show then they will at least be in good hands!


In my first audition, I had to bring along a monologue and perform it. However, Blessing the character is clearly disappointed and so she should be, coming so close to her dream. Your current job is always training you for your next one. I expected to be lectured but this was an opportunity to have an open and honest chat with some trans people.

But again she has to only wait what? The self-harm storyline is also misleading. Because of the type of character Blessing is, she makes everything work for her.

I wasn’t sure whether I would get it or not, so I just wanted to enjoy the auditions and try my best. I dress very differently myself, as my favourite colour is black. Blessing’s entrance storyline kicks off when Dennis’s cousin Dodger decides to invite him out to a strip club to cheer him up.
