Here is our Q&A interview with this lovely lady.

Corrinne started her career in television as a casting assistant on such programmes as “Prime Suspect”, “Dalziel and Pascoe” and The Ruth Rendell Mysteries, before deciding to switch to an acting career.

In addition to her appearances for five years in the daily soap opera Doctors, Corrinne has also appeared in several other shows including Harbour Lights, The Bill, Holby City, and played a barrister in Life on Mars. During her appearances on Doctors, Wicks garnered a mainly male following on the internet as a result of her voluptuous figure, earning her the nickname of ‘Dr. Norks’. Corrinne also appeared on the special charity “TV Medics” edition of The Weakest Link in December 2001.

She joined the regular cast of Emmerdale in November 2010 as Ella Hart, the ex-wife of Declan Macey. The character of Ella Hart will give her the chance to be more provocative and flirtatious than many of her previous screen credits has allowed, she may be a beautiful busty blond but she is all class.

Corrinne received a Best Actress nomination at the Royal Television Society Awards (RTS) in both 2004 and 2005.

As well as her newly appointed role in Emmerdale, Corrinne cross-channeled for the BBC’s adaptation of Nigel Slater’s best selling memoir Toast (January 2011) playing young Nigel’s lusty secondary school teacher.

CUPCAKE     What’s your favourite comedy TV programme, present or past?

CW   That’s a tough one…. there are so many…. Father Ted, Friends, Extras, The Day Today….

CUPCAKE     cosy night in or fav restaurant? 

CW   I love both depending on how confident I’m feeling but I’d probably would chose the cosy night in more often.

CUPCAKE     Which do you find more rewarding acting on stage or screen?

CW   I love both.  They are so different and so similar in so many ways that it’s hard to choose.

CUPCAKE     Although the news is generally all doom and gloom at the moment, what do you feel is man’s greatest accomplishment, so far?

CUPCAKE     What’s your signature dish in the kitchen, beans on toast or the Sunday  Roast or?

CW   Curry Sauce on toast with processed cheese and raw onion or my new dish, Pepperami and  cous cous.  As you can tell, cooking isn’t my strong point but having said that I can do a  Sunday Roast because you just shove it all in the oven and wait.

CUPCAKE      ice cream or summer pudding?

CW   I don’t like cold foods but if I had to have a cold pud I’d choose  Butterscotch Angel Delight or Banoffee Pie.

CW   One of the people I most admire at the moment is Frank Gardner, the  Middle East Correspondent.  He’s fantastic and his courage is amazing.

CUPCAKE    Bird or beast?

CW   Both, but not as pets.

CW   Smart.
