How old is Alexandra Roach and when was she in No Offence?

In March 2021, Alexandra announced she was going to become a mum on Instagram with a sweet photo cradling her bump.

Seen wearing a black dress in their home city of Bristol, she simply wrote: “I can't wait to meet my new pal.”

Her Killing Eve co-star, Jodie Comer, was quick to congratulate her, along with her Viewpoint co-star Noel Clarke and Gentleman Jack's Sophie Rundle.
