Hollyoaks has revealed more details of Rayne Royce's mysterious backstory.

The village newcomer has been tipped as one to watch over the coming months, as we learn more about the secrets that she's hiding.

Since moving into the 20-somethings' share house, Rayne has struck up a romantic connection with Romeo Nightingale and has embroiled the villagers into her career as a social media influencer.

There have been clues that there's more to Rayne than meets the eye – with her ex-boyfriend Mikey warning that she's not all she seems, and her best friend Lacey Lloyd supporting her over secrets from the past.

Hollyoaks' new spring trailer has now revealed where the storyline is heading next, as Romeo continues his attempts to impress Rayne.

When Romeo decides that he wants to make things official with Rayne, he's encouraged to impress her with a cheesy romantic gesture.

Romeo also becomes curious over another of Rayne's ex-boyfriends, Brent, and quizzes Lacey about him.

In the new footage, Romeo tells a startled Lacey: "They're saying he killed himself."

Meanwhile, in another clip, Rayne makes a plea to Lacey: "What happened with Brent stays strictly between us. And Romeo can never find out."

Hinting at what's to come, a Hollyoaks insider told us: "As Rayne supports Romeo through his anxiety over Juliet, she is still holding back. Romeo is convinced he has found out the secret of her ex-boyfriend Brent.

"But Lacey discourages him from pursuing it, while urging Rayne to be honest. Lacey finds herself, like Prince, stuck in the middle of the pair, whose drama is disrupting the 20-somethings' house."

Hollyoaks streams first on All 4, with new episodes dropping each weekday morning. The show airs Mondays to Fridays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, and at 7pm on E4.
