The actress, better known as Tyrone Dobbs' love interest Molly Compton in the soap, revealed that she would hate to spend hours in the make-up room like her female co-stars.
"No matter what, Molly will never wear more than a small heel, and you'll never get that rucksack off her either," Vicky explained. "Even when she's wearing a dress, which she did when Tyrone proposed to her last week, I still didn't want her to look too glam. It's much more fun to be un-trendy.
"And the amount of hours the other Corrie girls spend in make-up - I'd be exhausted. I've not got the patience."
Away from the cameras, Vicky is enjoying the benefits of slimming down from 10st to 7st 7lb last year. She later shared her secrets in a workout DVD, entitled Dance It Off.
"I'm much more confident," she confirmed. "Before it was like, 'What can I cover up with?' Now I think, 'What colours would be cool?'"
