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.

A critic could take the wind out of your sails.More
