Roxanne Pallett has confessed she fibbed on her CV to get her big break in Emmerdale.

The 30-year-old actress – who played biker chick Jo Sugden on the show for three years – said she told bosses on the ITV soap she was able to ride a motorcycle.

But before she knew it they had made her character a leather-clad tomboy, despite her barely knowing how to sit on a motorbike.

Roxanne, who left the show in 2008, said: “All my friends were asking ‘why are you always in leathers, getting on or off that b****y motorbike, but you never ride the thing?'”

The actress, who revealed her deceit as she launched 888casino’s Millionaire Genie game, went on: “My CV is like Joey Tribbiani’s (the Friends character who famously exaggerated on his resume). I say I can do everything you can imagine. I’ve even put ‘camel-riding’ on it.”

Roxanne launched the game by making fan Troy Stapleton’s dream come true by racing him in a JCB at Diggerland in Kent.
