Fans praise portrayal of disability

In recent years, Hollyoaks has earned itself a strong reputation for how it has incorporated characters with disabilities into the show by not letting their disability become the key focus of the character.

The same can be said for Summer Ranger. As fans may have seen, Summer actress Rhiannon Clements has a truncated left forearm, something she’s reportedly had since birth, although this has never been the focus of her character.

In fact, there has never been an explanation about Summer’s arm on Hollyoaks itself, it’s simply how the character is.

Instead, the recent focus of Summer’s time on Hollyoaks has been her tense relationship with Sienna Blake, something which threatens to boil over in the coming episodes.

Portraying characters in this way has won Hollyoaks plenty of praise in recent years as this interaction between fans on social media goes to show.

Hollyoaks continues daily on Channel 4 and E4 while fans can catch up on any episodes missed on All 4.
