Billie Piper talks secret struggles on hiding 'wild' side in Doctor Who years 'Annoying'


While actress Billie Piper, 38, starred as Rose Tyler on Doctor Who alongside Christopher Eccleston, 56, and David Tennant, 49, she says she found it “annoying” keeping the lid on her “wild side” as she admitted she had to behave a “certain way” when on the programme in her twenties. The BBC favourite spoke out on the pressures she was under on the hit sci-fi series.

Billie said being the face of a family show meant she was catapulted into fame after escaping the limelight as a teenage popstar.

The TV star rose to fame as a singer with her debut single Because We Want To when she was just 15-years-old.

Billie added she found the scrutiny of fame to be challenging, as she continued: “Starting Doctor Who reminded me about that.

“The sort of pressure and responsibility was a big part of it because I was in my early twenties and quite wild.”

The Secret Diary of a Call Girl star, who was married to Virgin Radio host Chris Evans when she was just 18 years of age, also spoke to David about the years she was “burnt out” in her career.

“I was just so tired. If I’m honest, I was really burnt out,” she told the Des star.

“I also wanted to have some freedom. I wanted to stay at home and learn how to cook properly and do what felt like healing things.

“Also, I went and got completely hammered for three years with Chris Evans,” she joked.
