EastEnders star Glynis Barber has revealed that she doesn't like her character Glenda Mitchell.

The actress, who joined the BBC One soap in January, admitted that she wouldn't trust Glenda as a friend because she is only interested in men.

She told Inside Soap: "As Carol said on screen, Glenda's not a woman's woman - she's more of a man's woman. I don't really take to people like that, to be perfectly honest.

"I get on very well with women, and I'm always slightly suspicious of anyone who's only interested in men - so that wouldn't endear her to me in real life. However, she'd probably be great fun on a night out."

Barber added that she has formed real-life friendships with Samantha Womack and Rita Simons, who play her on-screen daughters Ronnie and Roxy.

She said: "I've formed good friendships with both my girls. Sam and Rita are great and I love working with them." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
