Hollyoaks’ Steph hopes for ‘grittier’ Sinead

Hollyoaks star Stephanie Davis would love to see her character Sinead O’Connor “get really naughty”.

The actress joined the soap as feisty Sinead in 2010 and has recently seen her alter ego given a new makeover by resident glamour girl Mitzeee Minniver (Rachel Shenton).

Stephanie revealed: “I’d like to see things get a bit more gritty for Sinead, maybe see her get in a bit more trouble than she’s usually in.

“She’s a bit goody two shoes now. I want her to get back being chavvy and Scouse again and get really naughty.”

Stephanie – who was snapped showing more flesh than she’d intended to after last weekend’s British Soap Awards – teased: “We’ve got a big storyline coming which will have the viewers on the edge of their seats.”

And the actress – who previously showed off her musical theatre talent in the BBC One show Over The Rainbow – said she loved getting to take home her character’s cast-offs.

“She got remade by Mitzeee so all my clothes were got rid of, they were like, ”Shall we throw them in the bin?’ I was like, ‘No, I’ll keep them all for myself!’ They’re all designer, Topshop, I went home with two big bin bags and I gave them all to my cousins and my family.”
