After making her name as Kelly Neelan in Coronation Street, she found out she had the chance to star in the BBC sci-fi series on the same day she filmed her final scenes for the ITV soap.
“My agent called me and said, ‘How are you doing?’. And I was like, ‘I’m a bit down, today was my last day’, and he said, ‘Well, you’re going to keep this going’,” she told Doctor Who magazine.
“When he told me what it was, I kept thinking, ‘Oh my God, this is destiny, this is destiny’,” she revealed.

When she was just 12 years old she had an agent dedicated to her and quickly landed her first role as Indira on Jamie Johnson’s CBBC show.
