Stephanie shot to fame after taking part in BBC One talent show Over The Rainbow in 2010, when she was 17.
The show was trying to find a performer to play Dorothy in The Wizard Of Oz on stage.
Her performances impressed bosses at Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks, who invited her to audition.
She joined that year as teenage tearaway Sinead O’Connor and was at the centre of some of the show’s biggest storylines.
Earlier this year she revealed she had joined the cast of Coronation Street.
She told The Sun at the time it was her "dream" job.
She said: “You know when you have that feeling, ‘This is too good to be true, everything is happening too quick’? This was my first audition back after three years.
“As soon as I read the brief for the character I was like, ‘This is mine. This is mine’. I did the audition then went through this wave of emotions.
“I do believe everything happens for a reason, but my first audition back? No one gets that.”
It is an opportunity she has been dreaming about since childhood.
She said: “I wrote a poem when I was about 13 or 14, which read, ‘One day I will be on the cobbles of Coronation Street’.
“My mum had put it in her bedside drawer and got it out the other day.
“She said, ‘How amazing is that? You wrote that as a child as one of your dreams and now you’re doing it’.
