'Hollyoaks' actress Jorgie Porter admits she feels ''pressured'' to look good because her co-stars are so beautiful
Jorgie Porter feels "pressured" to look good because the other 'Hollyoaks' girls are so beautiful.
The 23-year-old actress - who plays mouthy teen mum Theresa McQueen in the Channel 4 soap - admitted she has been tempted to undergo a boob job in the past, but is now happy to wait until she is "really old and really saggy" before she goes under the knife.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "The pressure on the way you look is definitely influenced by looking at the other girls on the show and thinking, 'Oh God, they look better than me'. The other girls on 'Hollyoaks' are so beautiful and I do sort of aspire to look like them.
"It is so easy to just think, 'Oh I'll run off to another country for a cheap boob job because it's a quick fix'. But I want a long career and I'd rather wait until I'm really old and really saggy and I really detest part of my body, and then I'll treat myself. I'm pretty happy as a whole with my body at the moment."
Despite thinking her co-stars are "gorgeous", Jorgie explained she often forgets how beautiful her fellow McQueen family members are because she sees them every day.
She added: "I know the other girls are gorgeous, but I've become so close to them - they're my best friends - that I sort of forget how beautiful they really are. Sometimes I just look at them and think, 'Oh wow, you're really stunning!'
"We see each other everyday and we have the best giggle on set. We're not shy and we share a lot of secrets with one another."
