Told by her ballet school that she was too overweight to make it as a ballet dancer, the titchy blonde decided to be an actress. She was a member of the Francine Gorton school of dance, and then studied drama at the The Hammond. When she was 20, she landed the role of Theresa McQueen on Hollyoaks. She was ranked 50th in FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World list 2011, and co-star James Atherton must’ve agreed with this accolade, as it was revealed in the same year that the pair are dating.
She appeared on ITV show Born To Shine, and learned street dance but didn’t make it through to the final. Her luck on Dancing On Ice was much better, though. In early 2012, she was a contestant on the show, and got through to the final, finishing in second place behind Emmerdale actor Matthew Wolfenden
