    As fans wait and see if Chloe and Mack's affair gets rumbled, Daily Star has taken a sneak peek into Jessie's life look like away from the ITV soap cameras.

    Video tape audition

    Jessie made her Emmerdale debut last year.

    Chloe introduced as the sister of Gemma Harris, who memorably donated the heart received by Sarah Sugden (Katie Hill) in her heart transplant surgery.

    Speaking ahead of her first appearance on the soap, the actress confessed that she initially auditioned for the show with her mother at home.

    She told The Northern Echo: "The initial audition was a self-tape that I filmed at home with my Mum – who insists it's down to her acting prowess in that tape that I got the part.

    "Then a week later I was asked to come into the studios for a screen test."

    Career change

    While Jessie is a burgeoning actress, her career path at one time in her life looked very different.

    Speaking last year, the soap star candidly revealed that she initially studied Anthropology – the science of human development – at university before switching to drama after a week.

    Jessie previously explained: "Drama school wasn't really an option so I went to the University of Manchester to study Anthropology and audit their Drama course, though after a week I decided to switch to Drama full time.

    "It was a very theory based course which I enjoyed, but I made sure to get involved in as much extracurricular drama/acting as possible."

    Co-star bond

    Jessie has previously shared her close bond with her 'brilliant' Emmerdale co-star Laura Norton.

    She told OK!: "Laura Norton is really funny, she is brilliant.

    "It's so infectious as well, but she can switch back to being professional so quickly and easily — she's brilliant, she's fab.

    "I feel so lucky I get to work with Laura, she's brilliant."

    Emmerdale airs weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV
