Director of BAFTA Scotland Jude MacLaverty said: “It’s great. I don’t watch Hollyoaks on a regular basis but I’m delighted.

“It’s brilliant, a completely great, diverse list.”

Before starring in Hollyoaks, Annie appeared in an episode of Shameless in 2011 as school headmistress Miss Heller but the Channel 4 series is her first permanent role.
