One shot shows the 34-year-old sitting on a chair in the sexy skirt while a topless Oliver Farnworth, who plays Tony, kisses her bare leg.
Another shows her in the bedroom in just her dressing gown having what looks like a row with Jake Davies who plays her son Jamie.But while she’s getting on very well with Tony, things don’t look so peachy between her and a female co-star who she is seen putting in a headlock. The play also stars Waterloo Road Zarah Abrahams and Holloaks’ Oliver Farnworth.
