Actress Natalie J Robb plays Emmerdale's Mucky Moira who sees plenty of action between the sheets but that couldn't be further to her life away from the screen.
Her character is married to bad boy Cain Dingle but Moira is currently involved in a steamy affair with farmer, Nate.
Natalie, 44, is single and happily embraces her single life.
Speaking to The Mirror Online, the actress said: "I don’t have time for romance. I am still single.
"But I am quite a happy single person. You accept yourself.

"Statistics prove that you are a lot happier and healthier now if you are single because you don’t have to compromise."
She went on to add: "You are in control. You get pickier when you get older, you know what you don’t want."
Natalie was voted the Sexiest Female at the 2017 Inside Soap Awards but admitted that some of the attention she receives can be unwelcome.

The Scottish actress went on to say: "In this industry, it is very difficult to know if people want you to be you.
"I play characters but it is not real – I have come across it and it is a bit frightening. I have had some creepy moments and it did put me off."
Natalie has ruled out using dating apps such as Tinder after hearing horror stories from her pals.

She said: "I wouldn’t do the online thing – it’s a bit dodgy. My friends have done it and it has made them feel bad about themselves.
"But that is the society we are in now, people don’t go out to meet each other any more, and I really hope that that will come back."
However, she won't be chatted up on a booze-filled night out as she stopped drinking for Dry January and hasn't looked back.

She added: "You learn a lot about yourself, and I have loads more energy – there are loads of benefits.
"I'm not saying I am never going to drink again, but I would like to give my liver a break."
