Rose plays Jessie in the hit comedy

So what is the series about? The six-part comedy follows twenty-something Jessie, a millennial in London juggling two dead-end jobs and navigating the awkward morning-after-the-night-before when she discovers the complications of accidentally sleeping with a film star. 

Chatting about the series, Rose said: "I’m thrilled we get to make it, otherwise it would’ve technically just been a creepy fan fiction script that I submitted to the national broadcaster. The team we’ve brought together for this series are absolute dreamboats and I’m super excited to be working with them."
