Love Island contestant Molly Marsh’s famous family includes soap star mum

Love Island star tackles body shaming

Love Island is back on ITV on June 5 and one of this year’s contestants is 21-year-old Molly Marsh, from Doncaster.

The theatre star and social media creator admitted she was quite old-fashioned when it came to dating, as she does not “go out and party or use dating apps”.

While she prepares to find a potential partner in the villa, fans have recognised her as being the daughter of Coronation Street actress, Janet Marsh.

The Yorkshire-based actress appeared on the soap three times, playing various medical professionals.

She first starred in 2005 as a nurse, before playing a receptionist at the Scott-Roe Clinic in 2008.

Her latest Corrie appearance was in 2009 playing an ITU nurse.

Her other credits include Where The Heart Is, Bodies, In The Dark, Love, Lies and Records, Still Open All Hours and the short film Cerulean.

The star is also known for her voice work and has featured in projects for CBBC.

Away from acting, Janet has spent some time working as a teacher.

Her biography reads: “In between my acting jobs I have been a full time teacher, Principal of PQA Doncaster, a supply teacher, phonics teacher, English tutor and mum.

“I have always had a passion for performing and whilst some of my friends from drama school days have stopped working in this field, I just can’t!

“I love going to Act4TV lessons in Leeds every week to keep on top of my game and make sure I am ready for those castings.

“My daughters have also been brought up with this bug too, which I am very proud of, even if I live through their accomplishments forever.”

Molly opened up on how home life with her mum is not what others may expect as they stay with 11 other family members.

She shared: “I live on a farm with my mum, dad, sister, grandma, grandad, aunty, uncle, cousin, cousin’s husband, their baby and chicken.”

On how her family would describe her she said: “Mischievous, cheeky, weird and sometimes a bit of

a bossy diva, I’m incredibly close to my family.”

Love Island starts on Monday, June 5 on ITV2 from 9pm.
