Speaking to New Idea, the 35-year-old actress, who portrays the character Willow, said fitness is important, but these days it’s more about being happy with incidental workouts.

Has dancing always been an important part of your life?

Yes, I used to be a dancer, but I haven’t danced for a long time except around the house for fun! I’ve always enjoyed it and it’s always made me happy. Mum started me dancing
when I was about 4.

Did you study all types of dance?

I did – from jazz and ballet to tap, which I love. I did 42nd Street and that was probably my favourite. I also love salsa and samba.

How important is fitness to you?

At the moment for me, it’s just about being happy. My [late] brother always taught me to be fit. He was a massive advocate of fitness and whenever I would go and stay with him in Ireland, he’d wake me up and we’d go to the gym together and then go and get breakfast together after that. It was a great way to start the day and we had a great time together as well.

What comprises a typical workout?

At the moment, I run whenever I feel like running. I especially like to run along the beach.
It clears my head – and I also like dancing around the house!

Which cast members do you exercise with?

My husband [James Stewart, who plays Justin] and sometimes Tim Franklin and Sophie Dillman. It’s always fun.
