The pop star-turned-actress loves that she gets to jump the queue at glitzy parties and concerts but battles with the pressure of being in the public eye and struggles to be a role model.

The 33-year-old star rocketed to fame with hits like Because We Want To aged 15 and married household name Chris Evans at 19. She split from her second husband, Laurence Fox, in March and has moved on with rocker Johnny Lloyd from Tribes.

Despite dating a string of famous men and having a successful acting career now, Billie would love to live under the radar. She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “It’s not easy just to be really successful and ambitious and accomplished. It’s not as simple as that. It’s great there are loads of strong role models, but it’s also great to see the truth behind that which is that it’s not something that comes easy. There’s always a struggle. That’s the truth.”

The Penny Dreadful star added: "I enjoy going to places where people don’t know who I am – it gives me a sense of how much I enjoy being anonymous! The perks though… there are wonderful perks. Queue jumping is the best – sorry, but it is! The lack of ID. But I think I’d be happy to let them go.”

Shall we swap places with you for like, ever, Billie?
