Jodie Comer has told how being kicked out of a girl group during her teenage years led to her success as an actress.

The Liverpool native, 25, has become known to audiences worldwide for her role as skilled assassin Villanelle on BBC America's Killing Eve.

However, the TV star originally considered a career in music and first got a taste for performing when she was in a girl band.

Jodie told how in the middle of rehearsals for a school talent show, she went on holiday with her family.

She was then informed by the other members of the group that she could no longer take part because she missed too many rehearsals.

Although upset, Jodie decided to re-enter the talent show as a solo act and performed a dramatic monologue upon the encouragement of her mother.    

She told The Mirror: 'You know when you’re a kid and you’re so upset you lose your breath? I remember going up to my mum and being so distraught.
