EMMERDALE'S Lucy Pargeter is hiding an incredible secret past as a popstar.

The actress, 44, – who plays pub landlady Chas Dingle in the ITV soap – didn't always used to be one of the nation's favourite soap stars, instead she first tried to find fame as a popstar.

"I was once in a pop band supporting Boyzone," she told Woman magazine.

"It was back in the late 90s and we were called Paperdolls.

"It was a laugh. We went from thinking we were just a few girls getting together and doing a few songs, to getting signed by a record label and touring.

"It was a great time."

Unfortunately the band didn't really have any success.

Their debut single Gonna Make You Blush was released in 1998 but failed to make a mark, let alone anyone blush.

It limped into the charts, missing the top 40 by quite a lot.

Despite the tour with Boyzone, the band limped around for a couple of years before splitting and going their separate ways.

Fortunately this led to Lucy joining Emmerdale as Chas, a role she has played since 2002.
