“My experience as a Meg-alike began in September 2017. I was in Ikea with my family when a lady remarked I looked just like Meghan Markle. I smiled politely, but I had never heard of her. I Googled at home later, and although I saw the resemblance,” she told The Sun.
“I was already working as an actress on Hollyoaks, and The Only Way Is Essex, so when my agent advised me to work as a lookalike, I decided to give it a go,” the 37-year-old continued.
