"If I wasn't boxing, I would be acting now. I had small parts in Corrie and Emmerdale, and I wanted to take it a bit further, so I had some lessons," she told The Mirror.

"I'm starring in a TV drama in the new year, it's very exciting - I can't give you any more details though, it's top secret."

She added: "The one role I really want to do is action, I'd love to act in a James Bond film one day.

"Obviously boxing would always come first, but I will do my best to work around it. It would be nice to get a role on Corrie, I love watching that programme."

Nicola Adams is nominated for this year's BBC Sports Personality of the Year. She added that she has not written a speech should she win.

"It will be a big shock if I win, I haven't even prepared a speech," Adams said.

"To just be nominated is a real achievement - to be alongside people like Bradley Wiggins or Jessica Ennis is fantastic for me."
