Dancing on Ice

Career:

A former ballet dancer, Jorgie Porter launched her acting career in 2008 when she joined the cast of Channel 4 soap opera “Hollyoaks.” Playing Theresa McQueen, she made her debut on the series in November 2008, and has since been featured in a number of high profile story lines, including underage sex, the murder of Calvin Valentine, teenage pregnancy, being the target of a serial killer and falling down a lift shaft. The role brought her a 2009 TV Quick nomination for Best Soap Newcomer, and British Soap nominations for Best Newcomer in 2009 and Sexiest Female in 2012 and 2013.        

Porter also played Theresa McQueen on the spin-off series “Hollyoaks Later” on E4 from 2009 to 2013.

In 2010, Porter appeared in a music video and cover of Cyndi Lauper single “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” with eight other soap opera actresses. The song was released in aid of charity, Cancer Research UK's campaign “Race for Life”. The same year, she was featured on the November issue of Sugar magazine.

In August 2011, Porter participated in the ITV show “Born to Shin.” She learned to street dance on the show, but was unable to make the final.

In 2012, Porter joined the seventh series of “Dancing on Ice” as a contestant. She partnered with American pairs skater Matt Evers. Porter eventually finished in second place behind Matthew Wolfenden.  

Porter announced she had quit “Hollyoaks” in 2013 and her character Theresa left on January 9, 2014.

Because of popular demand, Porter returned to “Dancing On Ice” in 2014 in an “All Stars” edition for their final series. She, however, was voted out on the first week.
