Speaking to the Grimsby Telegraph, the actress said: "I work with some wonderful, creative, talented people, and it is such a privilege to be in this position and to bring their work to life.

"The actors are such great fun to work with - we always manage to have a laugh as well as work very hard.

"I hope to stay as long as they will have me really. However, I would like to do more singing, as I miss that quite a bit."

George also admitted she is proud to be part of the show following its recent success at the National Television Awards.

She said: "I am really proud to work on the show and I think both awards were really well deserved.

"The atmosphere was absolutely electric in the arena. It was my first time at the O2 and I was very impressed. I couldn't get my head around the volume of people in there. It was quite a buzz.

"All the cast were ecstatic at the awards. Both Julie and David Nielson, who plays Roy Cropper, have worked beautifully together with the storyline and I wanted them both to win, as they were equal winners in my eyes."
