During Coronation Street, Mollie's storylines have included being the victim of a hate crime and she has won the 2020 Inside Soap Awards Best Newcomer, the Best Serial Drama Performance at the 2021 National Television Award's and the 2021 award at the Inside Soap Awards for Best Partnership.

Mollie is not the only soap star to be taking part in Dancing on Ice 2023 with former EastEnders star Patsy Palmer also taking part in the show. The actress and DJ, best known for her fiery on-screen counterpart, Bianca Jackson, is paired up with Matt Evers for the new series of the ice skating competition and has been in training since the autumn.
But the star is usually as far away from ice-cold Britain and the East End as she can be with her California-chic lifestyle, which she shares with her husband, Richard Merkell and their children, Fenton, 22, Emilia, 21, and 12-year-old Bertie. You can read more about Patsy here.
