Roxanne Pallett has described her first day on the set of Waterloo Road as "surreal".

The 28-year-old actress will appear in this series of the BBC school drama as a 17-year-old Sixth Form student.

She told the Manchester Evening News: "It's a bit strange wearing a school skirt that says 'Age 12' in the back, but obviously it's great to be a part of a show like Waterloo Road.

"My first day on set took me back to my first day at school which was really quite surreal."

Praising fellow cast member and Britain's Got Talent winner George Sampson, she added: "George is such a talented young guy. A total natural."

Her last major role was in ITV soap Emmerdale as Jo Sugden, which she left in 2008.

She competed in the 2009 series of Dancing on Ice, before landing a guest role in Casualty. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
