Meanwhile, back in May the actor opened up about her insecurities over having the condition vitiligo, which causes parts of the skin to lose pigment or colour.

"Everytime I go on holiday and I get a beautiful tan, I see how much my vitiligo has spread more than ever before," Georgia explained on a selfie. "I would be lying if I didn't say it gets to me. It makes me feel super insecure at times.

"But seeing how the people around me support me and still love me the same makes my heart feel full. I've noticed people staring, having a good old nosey with their faces screwed up, and that's when my heart drops."

The star added that she wanted to give "a friendly reminder to those people to be kind," adding that "the way it makes you feel is nothing in comparison to how the person with it feels".

"I'm proud to be a voice for people like me with the condition. I battle with how I feel about it every day," she continued. "Today's one of those days I remember there is nothing I can do about it. So here we are. Showing it in all its glory."

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
