Letitia spoke to Woman’s Own magazine and said:

“Doing Secrets from the Square with Stacey Dooley was really great,”

And she added:

“It was weird because it was like a ghost town, but I’m glad I did it because I had anxiety about going back in.”

Letitia and her lockdown phase

During this lockdown from March 2020, Letitia was residing with her parents. She admitted that it was a  bit of a holiday for her. But for her parents, it was a bit scary times. But as the lockdown period prolonged, Letitia revealed that she found it more and more difficult.

The filming for the show has begun. Letitia is happy about it but continues to have some mixed feelings. She is happy that at the same time not many people are allowed inside Queen Vic. Entry is restricted due to government regulations. That has also helped her to get a bit more assured about going to the set.
