Best known to us for playing plucky barmaid Daisy Midgeley on Coronation Street, actress Charlotte Jordan has certainly showcased the breadth of her acting skill in the soap as of late.
Transforming from a happy and carefree singleton into a scared and defeated young woman trying to piece her life together after finding herself targeted by stalker Justin, fans have seen Charlotte take Daisy on a rollercoaster of emotions since the storyline kicked off last month.
With her upcoming wedding to Daniel Barlow now also hanging in the balance thanks to Justin’s scheming, and an acid attack due to take place in the coming weeks – it’s safe to say that there’s been no shortage of gritty scenes for Charlotte to sink her teeth into.
Luckily for the actress however, her real life is far less danger filled!
Born on June 1st 1995, Charlotte was born in Chobam, Surrey where she developed a love of performing at a very early age.
Attending the Oakfield School, a private school looked in Pyrford, Charlotte juggled her education alongside a keen interest in dance, which saw her taking classes at the Susan Robinson School of Ballet in Byfleet.
Throughout her childhood, Charlotte was a regular competitor in multiple ballet, singing and acting competitions – and even managed to achieve distinction grades in all of her examinations.
Following her clear success on stage, Charlotte turned her hand to professional acting, and scored her first paid gig in police drama The Bill, when she was just 12 years old.
After her first big break in The Bill, Charlotte went on to star in Summer in Transylvania, a Nickelodeon kids series from 2011-2012.
The show, which was a teen drama filled with zombies, werewolves and even the occasional vampire, follows the journey of a young girl who moves to Transylvania with her dad and brother.
Further small roles followed, including into BBC staple Casualty, before she starred in Netflix drama series Free Rein in 2018, where she portrayed Gaby Grant.
Flair For Music
Prior to becoming an actor, Charlotte showed off her vocal skills when she was selected to join a band that was being created by Simon Fuller and Geri Halliwell of the Spice Girls.
Performing with them for two years in total, Charlotte decided she much preferred acting, and admitted at the time, “Just because you can sing, doesn’t mean you should become a singer.”
With her wealth of skills and stunning looks, many fans at home may be wondering if Charlotte is single.
But alas, the actress is very happily in a relationship with her boyfriend Paul, and frequently shares snaps with him on social media.
Most recently, the couple documented a romantic holiday to Paris, where they visited several of the city’s most iconic spots, which include The Louvre.
The couple also got the best look at New York City, after they took off on a helicopter ride around the Big Apple.
Although Paul isn’t an actor by trade, he did previously appear in Coronation Street for one episode, as he made a cameo while Daisy was planning on how to seduce Ryan Connor in the Rovers Return.
While the scene was shot to look like Daisy was grabbing Ryan’s thigh, it was actually her boyfriend’s leg she had clutched as they were maintaining social distancing during lockdown.
