Hollyoaks star Stephanie Warring has admitted to feeling pressure over her looks and her posts on social media.
The use of things like airbrushing, face-tuning and filters on photos is — like everything on the internet — something people constantly disagree on, but as far as the Cindy Cunningham actress is concerned, she's all for digitally altering her photos.
"Don’t like this picture its filtered to f**k," she wrote alongside an Instagram selfie, "but lets be honest here, who doesn’t like a cheeky filter, there are like a billion out there to chose from to give you an instant facelift!
"If you are of a certain age you are clinging onto your youth for dear life, including me, sometimes I take a pic and think, who the hell is that looking back at me?
"If I post that everyone will think I’m old and ugly, Forgetting the fact that I’m 43 and on TV in High definition on 50 inch tv screen where you can see every pore and every wrinkle screaming at you! So yeah if it makes you feel better f**k it filter away, no one else’s business!!! [sic]."
Obviously, this then caused a debate in the comments section where people shared some mix opinions.
Stephanie recently called for more classic Hollyoaks characters to return to the soap, which we're sure everyone can agree is a good thing.
Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look episodes airing at 7pm on E4.
