And the telly favourite now wants to use her experience to help others come to terms with their sexuality.

Dolly-Rose, 31, told the Daily Star: “I have been coming to pride for over a decade now.

“The love and acceptance shown by the people of Manchester allowed me to accept my bisexuality and be proud of who I am.”

Dolly-Rose said: “The work that Manchester Pride does throughout the year to engage with and create opportunities for people in Manchester’s LGBTQ+ community and beyond makes a huge difference to so many people’s lives.”
