The actress, who portrays Alison Laithwaite in the 1960s-set BBC drama, opened up about the tougher moments during an appearance on The One Show today.

Speaking to hosts Matt Baker and Alex Jones, the 35-year-old admitted she had to do several takes of a scene in which her alter ego catches a scorpion.

Despite having a “wrangler” on set, Jessica commented: “Yes [I was in the room]. That was me! Numerous takes had to be done because… I was sure I could do it.

“The director wanted me to be really cool as Alison. But as soon as I did it, I was like, ‘Argh!’ It was horrendous.”

Jessica went on to discuss the best thing about her naughty role and it might not be what many would have expected.

She continued: “She’s my favourite character I’ve played so far, ever. It was a real transformation.

“I’d stand in the make-up truck every morning - in the starfish position - with at least two make-up artists with tanning mitts going, ‘Go!’”

Jessica also added: “It was not just that, but I did enjoy being very tanned. She’s kind of self-destructive, witty and she’s climbing the walls with frustration and boredom, but she just wants to have fun.”
