The 25-year-old plays paralegal Lacey Lloyd, a “fiercely loyal and a great friend who brings the calm and common sense,” Hollyoaks said.

In the Chester-based soap, Lacy moves into a shared house with her influencer best friend Rayne, played by Jemma Donovan.

Romeo (Owen Warner), Prince (Malique Thompson Dwyer), and Nadira (Ashling O’Shea) are also living in the house.

Annabelle was born with Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita (SED), a rare genetic form of dwarfism, and is believed to be the first Hollyoaks actor with dwarfism.
