Emmerdale's Sandra Marvin will "never forget" being a backing singer for Kate Bush.

The actress has previously shown off her vocal skills on the soap when her character, Jessie Dingle, got up to sing at Bob Hope and Brenda Walker's wedding and off-screen, one of her proudest moments was joining the "Wuthering Heights" hitmaker on stage when she performed 22 shows at the Eventim Apollo in London in 2014.

Sandra appeared on "Loose Women" on Wednesday (13.02.19) and said: "I've done a fair bit of singing. I love singing. I always sing. I even managed to sing on Bob and Brenda's (from Emmerdale) wedding.

"But I also did Kate Bush's when she did her residency, I was one of the singers there. It was amazing! I'll never forget it - let's put it that way!"

And she said she doesn't miss being a musician after becoming a television star because she still sings all the time and even has a few gigs lined up.

She said: "No because I still sing like round the corridors all the time and I've a few gigs coming up as well, one in London and one in Manchester."

Sandra said that she was shocked to learn her character would be marrying Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) and thinks things have moved "very quickly" since she joined the soap in 2017.

She said: "I totally didn't see it coming. I mean we both got called in. And I think I actually just sat there with my mouth open for about 10 minutes while I was told this journey that these two characters were going to be going on.

"And I couldn't believe it because when I came in, it all happened very quickly. The next week I was trying on my costume... I was on the show."
