Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter has said that she finds her character Theresa McQueen's outfits "embarrassing".

The 24-year-old admitted that the revealing costumes she wears do not match up to her clothing tastes.

Digital Spy quotes Porter as saying: "I've been on set the past couple of days where I've had to a red dress that was up my bum and my boobs were out, and I just think 'This is not me, I would never wear this, I don't have the confidence to wear this', but it's fine, because it's Theresa, I'm in character.

"And it helps to bring the character out when I'm in skimpy outfits because it's totally not me."

The former Dancing on Ice contestant admitted that she does not feel under pressure to stay particularly toned, saying: "As a kid I used to be really paranoid about it but I don't think about it anymore.

"If I'm full up with food, I just won't stuff myself anymore. I think that's the last thing in the world you should worry about, your weight.

"You should just worry about how your family are stuff, and meeting up with your friends."

Hollyoaks Later returns to E4 on Monday, September 17 at 10pm.
