Emmerdale's new recruit Trudie Goodwin has revealed that she is pleased with her character Georgia Sharma's glamorous wardrobe.

The actress was cast as Jai and Nikhil's outspoken mother earlier this year and viewers saw her first appearance in the role last Thursday.

Goodwin has now admitted that she much prefers wearing Georgia's clothes to the police uniform that she donned for her famous part as Sergeant June Ackland on The Bill.

"I look at policewomen in the street and it still makes me shudder slightly knowing how hot and uncomfortable they are," she told Celebs on Sunday. "I can honestly say I never want to wear a police uniform ever again."

She continued: "My [Emmerdale] character Georgia wears some rather nice clothes. She's got a bit of money, so she's swishing around in Jaeger and all sorts of smart labels. She's much more glamorous than I would ever be in real life.

"One thing I have bought myself since I've been up here is one of those big duvet-style winter coats. I've noticed it's a lot chillier up north."

Goodwin also said that she is enjoying her time filming Emmerdale as the countryside is "just so beautiful".

However, she added: "I couldn't live here permanently. I could never leave London - I like to see people around me and I love all the hustle and bustle that comes with it. I don't think I could cope with the quiet and all the wide open spaces of the country. I'm definitely a townie at heart."

Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm on ITV1.
