Lauren Socha has admitted that she can relate to her Misfits character Kelly.

Speaking at the launch of the second series, Socha confessed that she often has to discuss how strong to make her accent on the show.

"With all the directors, you kind of get an input," she said. "You talk with the directors and say how you're going to say things. My accent is such a tricky one because I can say things and I just sound stupid when I say them."

Socha added that she recognises aspects of Kelly in herself, joking: "I am a chav! No, I mean, who doesn't dress up in trackies and trainers with your socks tucked in when you're 15? Who doesn't go to the park with all your mates and make the swings go round over and over and over again?

"I related a lot to Kelly as a lot of my friends. And I think from doing the show, I've grown up so much. I'm coming into my own person now... I'm growing up and growing out of the chaviness."

However, she promised that Kelly won't change so much, saying: "Kelly is a standard beeyatch. She's wicked."

The second series of Misfits premieres on November 11 at 10pm on E4.
