The blonde beauty, who plays feisty firefighter Leela in the Channel 4 soap, claims she has always been brave.
“I have a daring streak - just like Leela,” says Kirsty-Leigh.
“I’ve done a few bungee jumps and zip wires - I once did one over Old Trafford football ground!
“I’ve also done the bungee ball, which is where you sit in a ball and then you’re flung into the air.
“I don’t get scared, I just love anything adrenalin-fuelled.”
And if she wasn’t an actress, Kirsty-Leigh thinks she could be a firefighter in real life.
“I actually think I might be quite good, because I’ve had a little bit of training,” Kirsty-Leigh added.
“Hollyoaks brought some guys from the fire station to talk me through some procedures.
“They showed me how I need to dress and how all the equipment works, and even the correct way to approach fires and burning buildings. So I’d give it a proper go!”
Hollyoaks, Channel 4, Mon-Fri, 6.30pm.
