"I am not doing any shoots this year. I finished Hollyoaks, which was amazing, but I don't want to do soap again - I want the next step up," the Sun quoted her as saying.
The stunner from Bury, Greater Manchester, has in fact taken elocution lessons to soften her Northern accent.She said: "You can't just expect to have done a Channel 4 soap and become a movie star, so I have had to start all over again. I made a decision to take a year out from the modelling."
“I wanted to audition and take acting classes - I want to start afresh. I have been coming down to London to meet with my acting coach and to have elocution lessons. Then I went to the States and worked over there. I think the lads' mags might have been a bit disappointed. I will still do my calendar, which is different, as it's my own styling, my own team."
