Pair are backing the Fire Kills campaign


Hollyoaks actresses Lena Kaur and Zoe Lister are encouraging university students to be aware of fire safety.

The pair, who play Leila Roy and Zoe Carpenter in the Channel 4 show, are backing the government’s Fire Kills campaign.

Zoe, 26, whose character was stalked by her ex-boyfriend, jokes: ‘It’s much easier to test your smoke alarm once a week and plan your escape from fire than it is to escape from a psycho!

‘Planning escape routes with your housemates is fun too and it could save you life – so do it!’
