Annie has shared her delight on Twitter, posting:

BAFTA Scotland Direction Jude MacLaverty added (via the Metro): “It’s great. I don’t watch ‘Hollyoaks’ on a regular basis but I’m delighted. It’s brilliant, a completely great, diverse list.”

The two other nominees in the category are Caitriona Balfe, for her role in ‘Outlander’, and Catastrophe’s Ashley Jensen.

Annie has been a hit with ‘Hollyoaks’ fans, and also taken on a number of huge storylines, including one which saw her character revealed as John Paul McQueen’s biological parent.

Good luck, Sally!
