Bronagh Waugh hoping to scoop gong

Bronagh Waugh

Coleraine actress Bronagh Waugh, who plays a sexy man-eater in the popular soap Hollyoaks, has been nominated for a major honour in the National Television Awards.

Bronagh (26) is one of seven nominees who have just been announced for the award as best newcomer in a TV soap or drama.

“I am totally thrilled to have been picked,” said Bronagh who has been in the Channel 4 series for only a couple of months.

Bronagh was initially cast in the soap for a handful of Hollyoaks Late programmes as the ex-girlfriend of a Northern Irish character played by local actor Glen Wallace.

But Bronagh proved such a success that the producers drafted her into the regular Hollyoaks series and her character has been a huge hit with the programme’s millions of viewers.

“My character Cheryl Brady has been like a Tasmanian devIl causing havoc in the village,” she said.

The awards will be broadcast in January.

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
