Georgia: (on how she and Jane Danson became close friends) Jane would say: 'My bum looks really big in this,' and I'd say: 'No, look at my bum, it's bigger.' And if there was an upsetting story I could call Jane and she would understand. That's not changed. I still ring her up when something goes wrong and it's nice to have someone to say: 'Yes, that happened to me.' You realise it's not personal and that you didn't do anything wrong.
Georgia: (on her friendship with Jane Danson) When I left Corrie, Jane was just leaving the Bill. We were both going through a huge transitional period in our careers. There was a time when neither of us was working and we were going for auditions. It wasn't easy, so we leaned on each other.
Georgia: (on her most embarrassing moment in Coronation Street) When I first played Toyah she had this school skirt which was very short - I'm sure they took it up! In one episode I was handcuffed to the banister with Spider. I had to bend over and I was curvier then with a bigger bum and when I watched it on television I was convinced you could see my knickers.
Georgia: (on if she would ever return to Coronation Street) Never say never, but at the moment I don't have any plans to return to the Street. And judging by all the awards the show has won recently, they're not really missing Toyah!
Georgia: (on keeping fit) I like to work out as much as I can, as I tend to feel better for it afterwards, but I have been the same weight for about five years now. My attitude is, that if you feel OK with yourself, then that's the best way to be.
Georgia (on Christmas) It's always more fun when you're a kid - you come downstairs and find your bag of presents.
Georgia: (on her cats) I love the time I spend with them. Bo sits on my lap and I know that if I didn't get up to make a cup of tea or go to the loo, she'd stay there all night! If I'm worried or upset I'm sure they know. When the therapeutic purring starts I always feel better. Bo will nuzzle up to my face and it's so calming. You feel chosen.
Georgia: (on her hair when she was young) I had proper princess hair until I was nine. It was down to my bum and very, very blonde. But I got sick of it.
Georgia: (on her character's clothing problems in Coronation Street) My school uniform is skimming the bottom of my bum. I don't know if anyone noticed, but I saw a knicker shot and was horrified.
Georgia: (on what she finds embarrassing about men) When a bloke gets the wrong impression going on a couple of dates - they take it that you're having a relationship!
Georgia: (on romance) Because I'm single, getting married and having a child seems quite far away. It feels like a million miles away for me! It's because I'm really happy with my life as it is. But then you don't know when you're going to meet someone who's going to sweep you off your feet.
Georgia: (on whether she had ever been star-struck) Not star-struck exactly, but I was excited when David Duchovny walked past me in New York. It was just because he's someone you wouldn't normally get to see.
Georgia: (on her strangest place on being recognised) I'll tell you what was weird - I was recognised in a pool once, when I was wearing a swimming hat and goggles! You could barely see my face, so I couldn't believe it.
Georgia: I've noticed I've started to get a few lines. Botox is tempting but I'd never consider it. Getting older is frustrating, because when I was 18, I had fantastic skin. I look back and think: 'Blimey, I didn't know what I had!'
Georgia: (on getting the role of Toyah Battersby in Coronation Street) When I got the call to say I'd got the part I just sat there, open-mouthed, hugging my best friend.
