Emmerdale star Natalie Anderson can’t believe that she has been shortlisted for Sexiest Female at this year’s British Soap Awards, as she has admitted that her appearance is not her main priority since having a baby!

The actress, whose character Alicia Gallagher spent a recent stint in prison whilst Anderson was on maternity leave last year giving birth to her fist baby, Freddie now nine months old, is up against Hollyoaks star  Jorgie Porter who plays Theresa McQueen, EastEnders Jacquline Jossa who plays Lauren Branning and Coronation Street’s Georgie May Foote who plays Katy Armstrong and current title holder Michelle Keegan, Corrie’s Tina McIntyre.

But whilst her character is about to be caught up in a love triangle with her ex-husband David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden), Natalie Anderson has admitted to the Sun newspaper that feeling sexy is not a normal state of play since entering motherhood.

The actress explained:

“Being a new mum I pretty much spend life in a tracksuit, so getting on to the shortlist is a real boost,

“It gave me a bit of reassurance that actually I am still doing OK for myself — and that it hasn’t all gone to pot since I became a mum!

“Sleepless nights, rushing around after a baby, juggling a full-time job and having renovations done on our home at the same time have all taken their toll.

“I’ve not always been feeling my best, so to be nominated is really lovely. I’m incredibly flattered.

“I think I’m the oldest in the category too, which again is nice!”
