Holly Quin-Ankrah would never follow her Coronation Street character’s footsteps and become a lapdancer – because she thinks her bottom is too big.
The former Grange Hill actress plays Cheryl Gray, who has caught the eye of cabbie Lloyd Mullaney (Craig Charles), in the soap.
She told the Liverpool Echo: “I know girls who do it as a job and that’s great, but I’ve never fancied it myself. If you’re body conscious it’s not the best thing to do – and I am. I’ve got a very large bottom.”
The Coronation Street newcomer admitted it was ‘scary’ working on such a successful soap.
She said: “You are just trying to jump in and fit in.
“Craig Charles, who plays Lloyd, has been brilliant, just perfect, holding my hand. But it was bizarre when I went for the read-through with Craig, who I knew from Red Dwarf, because I watched it as a kid and he was great.”
In the show, it emerged that Cheryl has a son and a husband, Chris (Will Thorp).
The actress teased fans about her future plot-lines, saying there are many ‘twists and turns’ in store and ‘turbulent times ahead’.
