During her tenure on the soap, viewers saw her character cheating on Gina with Nikki Sullivan, who later revealed that she only kissed Emily to see how kissing a woman would feel.

After the initial drama, Emily and Gina eventually reconciled, before the couple left Chester altogether to work at an orphanage in China.

But after heading back to the pastures with Gina, actress Lorna went on to star in BBC soap opera Doctors and ITV’s The Bill.

She also starred in the comedy series Is Harry on the Boat? as Rosie Chadderton from 2002 to 2003.

The show, which aired for two seasons, was based on the 2001 film of the same name which followed a tour rep facing his first summer in Ibiza and his quest to have the ultimate party.

Almost 20 years after her last stint on TV, Lorna has turned her back on acting and is firmly focused on her fitness career.

According to Lorna’s social media, she works with several different Pilates studios, including Pilates Corp as an instructor.

On their website, the former soap star explained that her classes focus on “exercises to strengthen the back, core and involve a full body workout.

“I work with the breath to create a mind-body connection in the classroom,” she added.

Late last month, Lorna married her 17-year-old partner Simon Allix, with whom she shares children Roma and Rive, at Chelsea Old Town Hall.

Paying tribute to her other half, who works in VFX film production, she shared a romantic photo of them on their wedding day to her Instagram.

She wrote alongside the heartwarming photo: ‘We got married. 17 years old… 2 children and loved it.

” Love of my life. You make us happy. ❤”.
