What has Anna Nightingale said about Andrea’s revenge against Belle?

Anna Nightingale spoke to Metro about why her character’s nemesis Belle could be in grave danger. 

Anna said: “She will be thinking of her daughter, so I don’t think she’d do anything to jeopardise her but blind rage can make people do crazy things.”

She added: “I think she would find it heartbreaking to see them together if they stayed as a couple, so she may set her sights on breaking them up. She’s learnt a lot from Kim and her stealthy approach to implementing revenge.”

Asked about how her character would react if Jamie and Andrea split, Anna added: “I would love to see her navigate her relationships in the village as a single woman. I think she’d want to stay just to prove a point. She’s got a fun, crazy and sexy side she would feel more free to show.”
