Jessica Ann Fox (born 19 May 1983 in Buckinghamshire)[1] is an English actress best known for playing Nancy Hayton on Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks.


Her early television and film roles included The Muppet Christmas Carol, in which she provided the voice of the Ghost of Christmas Past. Shortly afterwards her career in television was furthered with roles in The Angel of Nitshill Road, May and June, Trial and Retribution, The Bill, The Detectives and the leading role of Anthea in the 1997 BBC adaptation of The Phoenix and the Carpet.[1] She then moved to comedy, playing the "naughty but nice" Enid Nightshade in three series of The Worst Witch and the slightly naughtier Enid in the spinoff Weirdsister College. Co-starring with Sarah Lancashire, she then appeared in the role of Rusty Dickinson in Back Home.

Fox then moved into soaps, playing Belle Wise in Crossroads, and made a guest appearance in children's show Powers.[2] In 2005, she was cast as newcomer Nancy Hayton in the Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks.[3]
