After working as a dance teacher for Stagecoach Theatre Arts, Bronagh landed the role of Cheryl Brady in Hollyoaks Later in 2008. After impressing series producer Lucy Allan, Bronagh was offered the opportunity to join the main show.
As a curvy girl, she didn’t think she’d fit into the stereotype of a Hollyoaks girl, but now she realises she's not meant to fit the mould and was cast to represent normal-sized girls everywhere. At the time, she said: "I think it's good to see someone with flaws. I feel an enormous responsibility to younger viewers who may be watching and going 'oh my God, the girls in Hollyoaks are so skinny and gorgeous' and I really want to stand up for ordinary girls."
Despite still being in Hollyoaks, Bronagh starred in the BBC drama The Fall in 2012, which aired later in the year.
She is very private about her personal life, revealing in 2011 that although she was dating another actor, she was going to say no more. Spoilsport!
