On Saturday, she appeared on Live & Kicking from the BBC's Glasgow studios, with Geri Halliwell.

"I was the opposite of Jessica at school. I was an A student and ended up in the top 13 per cent of my state in the exams.

"I made a lot of friends and had a great time. I wasn't a swot. I did the studying and then got out into the sunshine.

"I'm definitely a beach baby. I love the water although I keep falling off the surf board."

Elisha, who is single, studied acting, music and dance before landing the part of Jessica.

Although she sang in the musical Godspell, she's quite happy to concentrate on acting for now.
