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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
