TV star shares industry tips

Actress and TV personality Denise Welch dropped into Debut Academy for Performing Arts to give students a celebrity insight into working in the industry.

Denise, who played Natalie Barnes in Coronation Street and Steph Haydock in Waterloo Road, is a regular panellist on the ITV chat show Loose Women, and she shared information about what was like to work in TV.

Denise said: “What an uplifting day!! Your support for the students’ mental health as well as arts training blew me away, a true heart and soul academy. I can’t wait to come back.”

For Denise’s next role she will be playing a dance teacher in the Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks, for which she hopes to gain some on some advice from our curriculum experts at Debut!

Debut Director Carolann Bruce said: “Denise was so inspirational for our students. More will come from this visit as she really enjoyed herself and wants to get more involved.”
