2017-on­go­ing: Launches col­lec­tion with Very.co.uk

2017: Tina Moore, Tina & Bobby

“I met her [Tina Moore, the ex-wife of for­mer Eng­land cap­tain Bobby Moore] and had to pinch my­self. She was at the read-through, sit­ting right in my eye line, and I was go­ing, ‘Oh God, I’m play­ing her, she’s there, I’m play­ing her…’ It was so weird. The wardrobe was the best thing. I loved the ’80s: the shoul­der pads, the ear­rings, the big hair.

2016: Ur­sula, Plebs [one episode]

“I was a big fan of Plebs. I played a sex ma­niac. We were in Bul­garia film­ing and the boys [Tom Rosen­thal, Joel Fry and Ryan Samp­son] were hi­lar­i­ous. I’d never done com­edy be­fore and it was re­ally fun to try some­thing to­tally dif­fer­ent.”

2016-present: Ge­orgie Lane, Our Girl

“I had to carry a 50kg bag on my back [dur­ing film­ing]. I was like, ‘You’re go­ing to give me an empty one, aren’t you?’ And the sergeant said, ‘No, you have to wear it be­cause you have to run like you’re in the army.’ It’s all the real stuff.”

2016-2017: Revlon brand am­bas­sador/so­cial-me­dia in­flu­encer

2015: Tracy Shawcross, Or­di­nary Lies

2009-2014: Wins Sex­i­est Fe­male, The Bri­tish Soap Awards

2008: Best New­comer, The Bri­tish Soap Awards

“That was a sur­real night. It was when I felt like I’d done it. It was my favourite award. When you work so hard as a team, those nights mean a lot be­cause you cel­e­brate to­gether. Ev­ery­one lets their hair down.”

2008-2014: Tina McIn­tyre, Corona­tion Street

“I grew up watch­ing the show. When I got the final call­back, I re­mem­ber sit­ting out­side and a girl I knew from an­other show was in there be­fore me, so I thought, ‘There’s no chance now.’”

2006: Beauty counter sales assistant, Sel­fridges, Manch­ester

“I worked part-time. When I left col­lege I wanted to do act­ing for a year. If noth­ing worked out, I was go­ing to go to univer­sity. My mum was five min­utes away, so her and my grandma would come in. I served Kym Marsh once. I was so star-struck.”

2006: Check-in agent, Manch­ester Air­port

“I worked nights on the check-in and got a dis­ci­plinary for fall­ing asleep in the toi­let. I went miss­ing for hours. It was about 3am. I re­mem­ber wak­ing up and some­one was rap­ping on the door go­ing, ‘Michelle, they’re look­ing for you!’”
