    Gavin and Stacey actress Joanna Page revealed she was once told she wasn't "pretty enough" for an acting job.

    The star was a guest panellist on Wednesday's (August 8) episode of Loose Women and told her co-stars about her horrible experience.

    Joanna explained: "I had an audition and I'd been back about nine times and it was going really good. And then they said to my agent, 'Could you please tell her that we just don't think she's pretty enough before the next callback? And to go to the department store and get them to do her makeup and everything and then come to the audition.'

    "I went back and that still wasn't good enough and then they said 'We're worried about her accent, can she then go and have coaching?'

    "And then I had the coaching and then I got the part."
