Niamh Blackshaw is known to viewers as Juliet Nightingale in the Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.

The popular character will find herself in danger in upcoming scenes as she tries to find her brother James Nightingale (Greg Finnegan).

She does some digging and finds contact details for Jeremy in James' belongings.

As she goes to pay Jeremy a visit, she quickly finds her life on the line.

As Juliet finds herself in danger, Daily Star has taken a look into Niamh's life away from the show.

The young actress has played Juliet since 2018, and during that time, fans have seen the character become involved in some of the soap's major storylines.

Many fans don't know that before Hollyoaks, she had a role in a rival soap and also starred in an advert for a major food company.

Niamh was born on November 19 1999 in Manchester, and was educated at Canon Slade School.

Before playing Juliet in Hollyoaks, the soap star starred in Coronation Street in 2017 as Lara Cutler, a friend of Bethany Platt, who was an abuse victim of Nathan Curtis in the soap.

She also starred in the 2018 short film Landline, before joining Hollyoaks in the same year.

The TV personality has shared behind-the-scenes photos of herself playing Juliet on her social media.

Niamh has also shared glam snaps from glitzy showbiz events, including the British Soap Awards.

She also shares photos of herself in a variety of stunning outfits on social media including one in a stylish beige suit jacket, with white tennis skirt and red vest top.

One fan described the photo as "gorgeous", with another fan saying "absolutely stunning."

Aside from her soap roles, fans have spotted the actress in an advert for Mr Kipling, which features a teenager taking a cake home from a party for his sister, who has been revising in her bedroom.

Niamh played the sister, who tells her little brother to "get out", but smiles when her brother leaves her a Mr Kipling cake.

Soap fans have also spotted that the actor who played her little brother in the advert is also a soap star.

Ben Hackett, who played Niamh brother in the advert, starred as teenager Will in Coronation Street in 2020.

His character Will called up the charity helpline where Todd Grimshaw and Paul Foreman worked, with Paul risking his job to meet Will in person.

However, it was revealed that Will had been hired to break up Paul and his boyfriend.

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