'Mr Selfridge' still


"I would absolutely love a part in Mr Selfridge," she told The Sun. "I'm qualified after all, and I know the history behind it all.

"When I first started working in Selfridges, we had a big talk about when and how it first opened and they talked about founder Mr Selfridge as well."
