"It's hard to resist the temptation of breaking the rules but they have to be followed," she told The Sun.

"I made a silly mistake. I am truly sorry. I now realise it was stupid and irresponsible.

"The whole COVID thing has definitely taken its toll on everyone. This time I will just have to abide by the rules until it blows over. You have to abide by the rules."

Chelsee's apology follows her opening up about her daughter Coco's experience of racism.

Speaking on the Don't Filter Feelings: Racism and my Children podcast, Chelsee described receiving "the most vile, vile message" on social media about her daughter, which made her "burst out crying".

She added: "There's been another time when she came back from nursery, and she said 'Mummy, I have brown skin. My friends say I'm brown.' My reaction was, 'Yeah, but you're beautiful and brown. Brown is so beautiful.'

"I think she's a little bit too young now to be having the conversation with her, but just so she knows that brown is so beautiful."

Hollyoaks airs on weekdays on Channel 4 and E4.
