Lauren Bolton has been part of a high-profile storyline including Max Turner (played by Paddy Bever) who was groomed by extremist Griff Reynolds (Michael Condron) into spreading racial hatred. As her role in the storyline came to an end, actress Cait Fitton penned an emotional tribute to her Coronation Street co-stars.
Lauren first appeared on the long-running ITV soap in November 2022 as a love interested for Max.
Her father was part of Griff’s gang and she played a pivotal role in grooming Max and getting him to make videos for Griff.
Max was smitten with Lauren and did whatever Griff asked in order to impress the teen.
However, the pair said goodbye in the most recent episodes as Lauren fled Weatherfield.
