Rachel Shenton cried for "three days solid" after filming her last scene in 'Hollyoaks'.
The brunette beauty is quitting the Channel 4 soap after portraying Mitzeee Minniver for two-and-a-half years, and while she is sad about leaving the show, the 25-year-old star has taken plenty of souvenirs home from the set to reminder her of the role.
She said: "Filming my final scene was emotional. I cry at the drop of a hat, so there were tears for three days solid.
"I've taken most of her wardrobe. There was a gold bikini I wore in my first episode that I wanted, and I've kept all of Mitzeee's killer heels, too. I won't be short of a party outfit!"
Mitzeee's final scenes will see her star alongside TV legend Eamonn Holmes, who makes a cameo in 'Hollyoaks' when the barmaid stars on a live TV show to send a desperate message to her former fling Carl Costello (Paul Opacic), who returns to the village to seek justice for his son Riley Costello's (Rob Norbury) death.
She added to Inside Soap magazine: "Mitzeee's exit storyline is everything I wanted it to be. I made the decision to leave about six months ago, and I was happy just to see what the storyliners came up with, because they always get it spot on. They've managed to get every part of Mizeee into this plot, which is exactly how it should be."
