Karen Gillan has revealed that she used to read what people were saying about her on the internet.

The Doctor Who star explained that she is still getting used to her newfound fame.

"Being in Doctor Who has completely changed my life," she said. "There is no other show that brings the same level of interest and hype or frenzy around it. People call me Amy all the time now and I actually respond to it."

Gillan also admitted that she stopped looking at people's comments online because she found it "strange".

"I couldn't resist having a look online to see what people thought of me as Amy," she said. "Although after a while it all got a bit strange seeing people talk about me. So I had to stop and I haven't looked since."

However, she added: "It's just great to know there are loads of people that are interested in the show and care about it."

The finale of Doctor Who airs on Saturday at 6.05pm on BBC One.
