Hollyoaks actress Emma Rigby has reportedly insisted she’s no WAG – despite dating a footballer.

The soap star, whose boyfriend is Doncaster Rovers player Matthew Mills, is said to have laughed off suggestions that she is the next Victoria Beckham or Coleen McLoughlin.

She told the Daily Star: “I don’t consider myself a WAG at all, in fact it makes me laugh every time someone says something like that to me.

“There’s certain images you get when you hear that word and I am none of those things. There are a lot of women out there who are WAGs and have very successful careers, like Cheryl Cole and Victoria Beckham.

“Clearly I am nowhere near their league but I really respect them for what they do, for making a career for themselves and being successful.”

She apparently added: “I am definitely very happy at the moment, my mum really likes Matthew and that’s the main thing.”

Emma, who plays Hannah Ashworth in the Chester-based soap, picked up a best actress gong at this year’s British Soap Awards.
