VICTORIA Ekanoye has become a household name thanks to her work on Coronation Street but failed to make the cut on X Factor:Celebrity.
Here’s all you need to know about the actress who was eliminated last night…
What’s Victoria Ekanoye’s background?
Victoria Ekanoye was born on December 11, 1982 making her 36-years-old.
Born in Lancashire, the actress studied musical theatre at Oldham College before following her dream of becoming an actress.
Victoria joined the cast of Coronation Street in August 2017, playing Angie Appleton.
She remained in the role until January 2019 when her character was seen leaving the cobbles to return to South Africa with her son George after splitting from her husband Jude.
Does Victoria Ekanoye have singing experience?
Victoria has a whole heap of stage experience, but it didn’t come in handy for The X Factor: Celebrity.
She had parts as Queen Sarabi The Lion King and a part in The Blues Brothers.
The actress has starred alongside Liz Hurley in The Royals and has had parts in films such as Untitled Krysten Resnick Project and As Bad As Me.
Victoria is set to star in the upcoming remake of The Worst Witch airing on Netflix.
She tweeted: “Delighted to say that I will be joining the coven of The Worst Witch and playing the fabulously flamboyant Mistress Nightshade.”
Is Victoria Ekanoye dating anyone?
According to her social media, the star has a long-term boyfriend named Jonny Lomas.
The pair keep their relationship somewhat private but we know they like to travel the world together.
The self-proclaimed foodie also likes to share updates about her relationship and work-life with her 19,000 Instagram followers.
What time is X Factor: Celebrity live show on?
