The 39 year old, who plays detective Ellie Miller in the hit ITV show, says her looks have been a blessing for her career.
‘I feel fortunate that I’m not a classic beauty’ she said. ‘I feel it’s harder for girls who are like that. There are fewer parts.’
She continued: ‘I’m not suggesting I feel unconfident. I am beautiful to my husband. I am beautiful to my friends. I feel sexy and all those things to the people I love.’
