Suranne Jones, who is a former soap star known for her role as Coronation Street’s brassy factory girl Karen McDonald, has revealed her sexy side in a new lingerie shoot.
The actress, who is fronting an awareness campaign, is the new face for Eveden, who make of Freya and Fantasie lingerie, to emphasize the importance of wearing a correctly fitted bra.
She has spoken previously about a casting director who cruelly said to her agent: “Suranne? Well she’s a bit fat and a bit nothing, really.”
She continued, “I was devastated. But I went to the audition, killed her with kindness and got an audition for a part in a soap.”
She also revealed that she was bullied at school, which led her to make herself sick, saying, “Even though I had a strong personality. It didn’t come out when they were calling me a slag and pushing me down the corridor and my confidence dived.”
Later, she got the role of Karen, a role that made her win the Most Popular Actress crown at the National Television Awards.
