Hollyoaks Lucy Jo-Hudson’s celeb links – Corrie ex, famous brother and BGT star

Donna-Marie Quinn attempts to track down The King in Hollyoaks this week ahead of Romeo Nightingale (Owen WarneR) and Prince McQueen's (Malique Thompson-Dwyer) outdoor broadcast.

The King is a supposed "real life superhero", who Prince and Romeo think will be able to attract more people to their event, but he is proving difficult for the duo to find.

Will Donna-Marie be able to find the King in time? Viewers will have to wait and see.

It's not only on-screen that Donna-Marie has celebrity links however, as actress Lucy Jo-Hudson has led a pretty interesting life off-screen too.

Here, Daily Star takes a closer look at Lucy-Jo Hudson's "hidden" celebrity links away from Hollyoaks.

Corrie star ex

Lucy Jo-Hudson rose to fame on Coronation Street as teenager Katy Harris between 2002 and 2005 – and it was not only fame she found, but romance too.

She and Corrie co-star Alan Halsall, who plays Tyrone Dobbs, hit it off on set and later married in 2009.

Together they welcomed a daughter called Sienna in 2013, but later divorced in 2018.

Lucy is now in a relationship with partner Lewis Devine, with whom she has a son called Carter, while Alan is in a relationship with girlfriend Tisha Merry.

The actress has since opened up about the difficulties of co-parenting, sharing an emotional post in 2021 saying how much she missed her daughter, after Sienna was away from home on holiday with her father.

Sharing a photograph of her and Sienna on Instagram, the star captioned the post: "I cannot wait to get my girl home tonight.

"It never gets any easier when she goes away, I miss her so much!!! But I know she will have had the best time… Hurry home baby, miss you, especially your little brother."

Lucy-Jo also spoke to OK! magazine and said that despite their best attempts, she admitted co-parenting is "challenging".

She said: "Everybody who has a blended family knows it’s not easy. You can’t pretend that it is."

Famous brother

Lucy is not the only famous star in her family, as her brother is also a big name in the world of sports.

Lucy's famous sibling is none other than former professional rugby player Ryan Hudson, who played for clubs including Huddersfield Giants, Wakefield Wild Cats and The Castlefield Tigers.

After playing professional rugby between 1998 and 2012, Ryan also opened up his own gym and is reported to be a coach at Stanley Rangers ARLFC.

BGT finalist

Earlier this year, Lucy revealed a sweet connection to Britain's Got Talent star Jamie Leahey.

The young ventriloquist and his puppet Chuck entered the final of the 2022 competition, with Lucy later revealing that he was a pupil at her partner's theatre company.

She also paid tribute to the young star ahead of his appearance in the final, sharing a sweet snap of Jamie and Chuck with the caption: "Very proud of this young man!

"Please all get behind him, he's such a gorgeous young man, both inside and out! He works so hard, and is so dedicated."

Lucy continued: "We're so excited to watch you tonight @jamieleahey01. Go smash it we're all rooting for you!"

Amanda Holden

In another Britain's Got Talent connection, Lucy also has a link to judge and radio host Amanda Holden.

Between 2006 and 2009, and 2012 and 2013, Lucy played Rosie Trevanion in hit ITV series Wild At Heart, which also starred Amanda as her mother Sarah Trevanion.

Amanda left the series after her character died on-screen in season three, but she and Lucy remained close friends after they both departed the drama.

Lucy also revealed to The Mirror that she regards Amanda as a role model, saying: "She's a rare gem.

"She knows what she wants and manages to get it. She's proof you can make that change."

Hollyoaks airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 6.30pm followed by first look episodes on E4 at 7pm
