She has played Aimee in Sex Education since its first season.

"Everyone’s kind of really growing up and I think a lot of that is to do with this new headteacher who has brought this completely opposing ethos to Moordale, and the students in the wake of that are figuring out a lot about shame and kind of learning how to embrace their individually when someone is trying to stifle it."

"We still really love each other and respect each other. It was an okay breakup, it wasn’t dramatic."
