TV STAR JAILED FOR DRINK DRIVING

 

Former TV star Emily Corrie – who played Sooz in the Channel 4 series As If – has been sentenced to 12 months for dangerous driving and four months for excess alcohol.

The actress who was MCFLY’s inspiration for “5 Colours in Her Hair” was stopped for drink-driving on the way to her own hen party. She was almost 5 times the drink-drive limit when she was arrested.

And she even fell asleep in the police car when officers tried to breathalyse her.

Portsmouth Crown Court heard Emily collided with a person checking she was OK after she careered onto the hard shoulder.

According to the Metro, prosecutor Daniel Sawyer said: “The witness is a trained first aider and, having seen the defendant, got out to see if she was OK, went round to the driver and said, ‘I’m a first aider, have you got any issues?’”

Daniel continued: “He said, ‘I could smell alcohol, she couldn’t keep her head up as she tried to put the car in gear‘“.

Emily also asked officers whether she’d be back in time for her hen do when they bundled her into the back of their car.

Corrie also had roles in Casualty, Doctors and NY-Lon.

However, she quit acting to join the Royal Navy.
