Despite being in showbusiness for 32 years, British actress Patsy Kensit has been nominated in the British NATIONAL TV AWARDS Best Newcomer category for her role in soap opera Emmerdale.

The 36-year-old, who has been married to Jim Kerr and Liam Gallagher, made her television debut at the age of four in an advert for frozen peas.

She landed the role of soap bitch SADIE KING earlier this year (04).

She says, "I was totally shocked to be nominated but absolutely thrilled because it's the public voting. I'm not expecting to win but I consider it an award to be nominated."
