Daisy Turner has admitted that she felt under pressure to impress Hollyoaks fans when filming her debut on the soap.

The actress, who is the younger sister of former EastEnders star Lacey Turner, has joined the cast of the Channel 4 show in the role of Jenny, a mysterious newcomer who will soon turn up at Chez Chez looking to settle a score.

In an interview with The Sun, the show's new recruit confessed that comparisons to Lacey will be inevitable once she appears on screen.

She explained: "I've prepared myself for people to say I'm not as good as Lacey. It can be annoying to always be referred to as her sister. But getting this part is something that I have done on my own. I don't want people to think I only got it because of Lacey.

"Lacey has done so well - it does put pressure on me. I think she is brilliant and I want to be as good as that. I've tried my best so we will have to wait and see what people think."

Daisy added that she was inspired by her sister's successful six-year stint on EastEnders, which saw her win numerous awards for her portrayal of Stacey Slater.

"Seeing her on screen pushed me more to want to be an actress," she said. "I was about 16 when she joined EastEnders. It was a bit weird watching her on telly at first but you get used to it.

"I found it funny when she did sex scenes. But I cried when Stacey was diagnosed with bipolar, thinking, 'That's my sister, what's she doing?'"
