Roanne Bardsley

Hollyoaks, Lime Pictures

Roanne’s passion for television drama began when she fell in love with The Bill at the age of six, and she’s been determined to become a screenwriter ever since. After doing the rounds as a production runner, and eating too much cake behind the scenes of Bake Off, Roanne got her break in continuing drama when she was hired as a storyliner for Hollyoaks. Roanne now divides her time between storylining and writing scripts for the Channel 4 soap. When she’s not writing, Roanne spends most of her time eating noodles and being bossed around by her mini dachshund.

“In three years, Roanne has grown from a novice storyliner to a flourishing writer. She’s an invaluable member of our creative team at Hollyoaks, a story engine, responsible in no small part for the show’s continued success.”
