Claire Cooper grateful for 'Oaks wardrobe
Hollyoaks star Claire Cooper has revealed that she would not like to be "glammed up" for her role in the soap.

The 30-year-old actress told Closer that she has an easier time on the show's set thanks to her character Jacqui McQueen's attitude towards clothes and fashion.

Cooper explained: "I'd probably be unhappy if I was glammed up on the show because then I'd be analysing myself the whole time.

"It's great playing Jacqui because I can just be completely grotesque and over the top, snarling and grunting."

She added: "It can sometimes be hard because Hollyoaks is seen as a 'honeys' show and I'm playing the complete opposite, but I wouldn't have it any other way."
