Michelle came to Scalakids as a very determined but untrained 14 year old. She needed to catch up with her fellow students so she started musical theatre classes with the “little kids” and rapidly rose through the ranks, Producing a talented singer and dancer however acting was always her first love.

At 16 we sent her to London to star in a play in the West End and from there on there was no stopping her. She had roles in “Coronation Street”, “Heartbeat” and went on to play ditzy receptionist ” Lizzie Hopkirk” in “The Royal”

Michelle has played vet Vanessa in Emmerdale since 2012
