But the TV favourite finds putting on the tacky outfits help get into character for shooting.

“You get there and Aisling, the costume designer, has all these costumes ready, so you’re like, bam, this is the last little touch to get you into the mode.
“It’s good fun, that usual look and it’s very defined.”

She said: “It’s important to keep things like that under wraps. You forget that side of it until that comes out again.
“We’re just all there doing a job and getting on really well and having good energy about the place.
“Sometimes it can be quite funny with fans — the last day it was mad, once the word gets out they are all there.
“It’s mad, but at the same time it’s lovely — they just want to see characters come together.”
