Hollyoaks legend Jorgie Porter is living proof that you should never judge a book by its cover.
The 29-year-old actress first emerged on the scene as Theresa McQueen in the popular Channel 4 teen soap.
It was a role that catapulted the actress to fame and saw her land a whole host of interviews and magazine shoots in the years since.
Along the way, Porter has also appeared on everything from Dancing On Ice to I’m A Celeb, emerging as something of a media celebrity in her own right.
Yet behind all the hot and heavy storylines on Hollyoaks and various magazine shoots down the years, Porter is actually a very different person in real life – shock horror.
Nowhere is this better demonstrated than in the world of dating.
While Theresa McQueen has been involved in many a love affair down the years on ‘The ‘Oaks’ when it comes to dating in the real world, Porter has a particular set of rules.
Speaking to Daily Star Online at the Fashion Parade by Sadia Siddiqu show, the actress lifted the lid on her dating life.
“I don’t know about a three date rule… mine is seven,” she explained.
“The thing is then they will always come back afterwards.”
For Porter, it seems, the aim is to find someone willing to stick around for the long-haul rather than a bloke more concerned with hooking up with a celeb.
“Do you know what, some people don’t even have sex until they are married,” she added.
Porter’s rules will be put to the test this year, when she appears on the new series of Celebs Go Dating on E4.
