Anna is currently wowing viewers in The Girlfriend Experience which has set jaws dropping with its racy lesbian sex scenes.

She said: ‘We’ve got to concentrate on it as a piece of work. I’ve never really had an issue with nudity as long as I didn’t ever feel like I was made to do it or thought that it was salacious.
‘But if you’re dealing with something where you know that sex is going to be involved, it’s something that we really shouldn’t shy away from.’
Anna made television history aged just 17 when her lesbian kiss on Brookside was the first ever to be screened on British Primetime television.
Elsewhere Anna has received critical acclaim for her most recent out as talented but volatile detective Marcella.
In the ITV series, which wrapped filming on its new series over the summer, Anna played Detective Marcella Backland, who is devastated when her husband leaves her and their two children, but is forced to try and put her personal issues aside whilst on the hunt for a serial killer.
Anna – who is thought to be currently single – raises her 11-year-old daughter Gracie Fields, from her previous romance with David Thewlis, 54.
The former flames never married, but they parted for good after almost a decade together in December 2010.
Vogue coverstar Adwoa Aboah, 25, took a walk on the wild side with her outfit, flashing her cleavage in a plunging leopard print dress, accessorised with a multitude of gold chains.
She bundled up against the winter temperatures with a chic black coat that came complete with leopard print lining and sleeves.
The star finished her look with a matching hat and added further height with silk strappy sandals.
Mascara and a light coating of gloss accentuated her striking features.
The glamorous duo were part of a star-studded guestlist including Mick Jagger, Elton John and David Furnish, Boris Johnson, Sarah Ferguson, Ian McKellen and Stephen Fry.
