Roxanne Pallett has revealed she suffered at the hands of bullies when she was at school.

The Emmerdale actress, 30, says her foreign looks marked her out as a target.

'My grandad is Italian, so I've always had darker skin than most people,' she says. 'And at school, this singled me out from the other kids.

'I was a bit of a tomboy, too, and found it easier to get on with the boys. I think that was something to do with it.'

It was only when Roxanne signed up for after-school drama classes that she found an escape route from the bullies' taunts.

So now she's a successful actress, does she feel she's avenged the schoolyard snipers?

'A few years ago, I would have thought, "Ha!"' she tells Saturday magazine.

'I remember walking out of the classroom thinking, "I'll show them". But now it's more "I'll show myself". I don't want to get back at anyone.'

It takes an even stronger person to release the hate and move on with no burden from the past
