Jorgie Porter has joined the cast of "Fame: The Musical".

The former "Hollyoaks" actress - who played Theresa McQueen in the Channel 4 soap from 2008 to 2016 - will take on the role of Iris Kelly in the production, which is based on the hit 1980 movie, and cannot wait to don her ballet shoes again.

Jorgie said: "I am so excited to be making my stage debut playing Iris Kelly in "Fame".

"The musical is one of my favourite ever films. I've not had a chance to perform ballet for a long time, it's what I originally trained in - so I'm looking forward to getting my ballet shoes on."

The 30-year-old actress will star alongside Mica Paris, who will play Miss Sherman in the musical, and she is excited about joining the production.

She said: "The movie "Fame" was a big favourite of mine because it really was the first glimpse of what the beginning process of becoming a trained artist entailed."

Jorgie - who appeared in "Celebrity Haunted Mansion" earlier this year - recently admitted she has been so busy of late she hasn't had time to watch "Hollyoaks", but wouldn't recognise any of the stars nowadays anyway.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I've not had a chance to watch "Hollyoaks" because I've been away in different countries.

"Also, I don't really know any of the cast anymore, so it's like, "Who is this? Where he's gone?" "

The blonde beauty admitted she would be up for a "Hollyoaks" return one day, and would love Theresa head back to the village as a granny with 20 children.

She added: "I obviously love "Hollyoaks", I'd never say never about returning in the future but I enjoy doing certain other things at the minute.

"I just like to experience other things. Because once you're in a soap, you're there. You're in a bubble.

"So as much as I love it, I like to space out a little bit.

"I'd love to go back one day, maybe as a grandma with 20 kids."
