Hollyoaks: Alice Barlow on posing for ‘Zoo’ and what lies ahead for Rae

Hollyoaks star Alice Barlow – who plays Rae Wilson – has revealed that she thinks her co-stars will be shocked that she’s posed for lads’ mag ‘Zoo’.

Alice said, “They see me as ‘Little Alice’ at work so it will certainly be a shock.

“I’m excited to hear what they say and maybe it will give them a different perspective of me. I don’t want to be naïve ‘Little Alice’ forever, do I?

“My view is that underwear is the same as a bikini. When I’m on a beach anyone can see me in a bikini so why can’t anyone see me in my underwear? It’s the same thing, isn’t it?

“I did the Hollyoaks calendar and really enjoyed it so I thought I’d give this a go. Gemma Merna and Jorgie Porter just told me to relax and enjoy it, so I did.

“But then that’s easy for them to say – they’re gorgeous all the time!”

Also, in an interview with All About Soap, Alice revealed that there’s a big storyline twist in her character’s plotline. for her character Rae Wilson. As viewers will probably know, Rae finds out about Ste and Brendan soon, but it seems there’s worse news to come for Rae.

Alice said, “There’s a shocking twist in Rae’s journey, which I can’t tell you about yet.

“Something will happen to her that no-one will have seen coming, and it’ll change Rae’s life forever.”

But on the subject of Rae discovering the truth about Ste’s sexuality, Alice said, “She dumps him straight away…

“He tries to win her back, but Rae has made up her mind by that point – she doesn’t want him anymore.

“Once you’ve found that out about your boyfriend, there really isn’t any going back. She isn’t going to stick by him.

“She’s still determined to keep the baby, despite everything she’s been through recently.

“Rae wants to show everyone that she can be a good mum on her own.

“She’s got support from her mates Amy and Gaz, so I think Rae will get through this.”
