Welsh actress Kimberly Nixon, who was voted the "Sexiest Woman in Wales", says she still finds it hard to get over her "sexy" status.

"I'm a tomboy and quite clumsy so I'm more like the anti-sexy icon," Nixon was quoted as saying by Yahoo. The "Fresh Meat" and "Cranford" actress revealed she was quite boy-like during her childhood.

"Growing up we used to watch a lot of Indiana Jones and Star Wars, and wear hand-me-down jeans and jumpers. I wasn't really one for dresses," she added.

Nixon is currently starring in a three-part television series, "Kidnap and Ransom". The second episode is scheduled to air on ITV1, on Thursday, March 1. Meanwhile, Nixon will also be seen in two films this year, "Elfie Hopkins and the Gammons" and "Offender".
