The actress, who plays Woolpack barmaid Priya Sharma, appeared on Daybreak this morning (January 23) and encouraged votes as she praised the ITV soap's recent form.

Voting for most of the categories closes at midday today, but the 'Serial Drama' category remains open throughout this evening's live NTA show.
Wade commented: "I really hope people vote. I think Emmerdale is really well deserved this year with the live episode, the 40th anniversary, and of course we've got Liam Fox up for 'Best Newcomer'. He's such a great guy and such a great actor. I really hope everyone votes."
The 33-year-old also discussed her own ongoing storyline, which sees Priya caught up in a love triangle with David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) and Alicia Gallagher (Natalie Anderson).
She said: "It's all happening, isn't it? She's a bit of a scarlet woman in the village at the moment and getting the blame for everything.
"I love playing Priya. I'm quite defensive of Priya because I play her, so I sort of justify her in a way. I know the reasons behind things and everything - why she does things. I love playing her, she's great fun to play."
The National Television Awards air live on ITV tonight from 7.30pm.
