Adams, who attends independent school Bolton School Girls’ Division, said: “The best things about acting are the people you meet and getting the experience of it all.

“It’s such a surreal but interesting career. The hardest thing is the long hours when you’re filming, especially in the summer holidays – but it’s worth it.”
