Jorgie Porter: I’d love to get scruffy on screen

Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter has revealed that she would love to swap her glam screen image for something a bit more casual in a future role.

The actress – who is currently a contestant on Dancing On Ice – has played Theresa McQueen on the soap for the past three years, and said that she would be keen to surprise people by doing something totally different.

“In my day-to-day life I’m a bit scruffy anyway. It wouldn’t bother me a bit, it would be completely different and the shock element of that would be really good,” she said.

However Jorgie added that while she would love to do more diverse roles in future, she was happy in the soap world for now.

“I’ve not got any ideas of going anywhere else and no one’s asked me to do anything else. You never know what’s going to happen. Theresa can’t get away with being a murderer forever,” she said.

“I’d love to just play somebody completely different like in an insane asylum or on Downton Abbey, just somewhere completely different, with a different accent.

“Also I’d love to do something evil,” she added. “That would be fantastic.”

Meanwhile Jorgie has been named as the new favourite to win the Dancing On Ice crown, taking over from close rival Matthew Wolfenden.

Bookies William Hill are currently offering odds of 5-4 on the 23-year-old taking the series title, while the Emmerdale actor is just behind in the betting at 11-8.
