Katherine Kelly couldn't take part in a reality TV show because she doesn't have the "ego" for it

Katherine Kelly doesn't have the "ego" to be on a reality show.

The 'Mr. Selfridge' actress is a fan of the 'Great British Bake Off' but wouldn't want to appear on the celebrity version as she much prefers to "get into the mind-set" of her characters instead.

She said: "I don't think [I'd go on a reality show]. I love 'The Great British Bake Off' but I don't have the ego to want to be on it. I like getting into the mind-set of somebody else and a reality show is the opposite of that."

Katherine can next be seen in spooky new drama series 'HIM' but didn't think about the supernatural elements to the plot as her character isn't aware of them.

She said: "It's a domestic horror about a family with a 17-year-old boy at the centre of it. I play his mum Hannah.

"He has supernatural powers - but I didn't concern myself with that because my character doesn't know about it. There's a great twist..."

The 36-year-old star - who has two-year-old daughter Orla with husband Ryan Clark - insists she was never a worry to her parents as an older teenager, but things were different when she was younger as she looked several years older.

She told Closer magazine: "I was alright by 17 because 18 was around the corner and I was happy with that.

"I was a lot trickier at 14 - I looked 18, which wasn't helpful for my parents. My sister was four when I was 14 and people thought I was her mum."
