Rachel Shenton has revealed that people tell her she shares a likeness to Cheryl Cole.

Speaking to Reveal at the Inside Soap Awards, the Hollyoaks actress declared that she finds the comparison to the Girl's Aloud star "flattering".

Shenton, who plays Mitzeee on the Channel 4 teen soap, divulged: "I have been told a few times that I look like Cheryl Cole.

"I'm sure she hasn't got a clue who I am, but it is flattering. She's really hot, so it's great!"

Cole recently took an interest in Hollyoaks Later, the show's late-night spinoff, due to the fact her bandmate Kimberley Walsh's sister Amy appeared.

Shenton also played a part in the special week-long series, which was screened on E4 earlier this month.

The 24-year-old has declared her delight with her character's new looks since being jailed. Mitzeee was falsely accused of stabbing rival Mercedes McQueen.

"My character is going through a tough time and isn't wearing make-up at the moment and I love it," the soap star added.

"I get in to work, they whack a bit of under-eye cream on to make me look like I've had no sleep, so it takes 5 minutes. It's brilliant!"

Shenton confirmed last year that she prefers not to wear make-up off screen.
