Jodie Comer explains why she still lives at home with her parents

At just 27-years-old Liverpool actress Jodie Comer has achieved a great deal.

She became an icon among teenagers for her role as Chloe Gemell in My Mad Fat Diary, one of the most-hated women in Britain as Kate Parks in Doctor Foster and an international superstar for her role as Villanelle in Killing Eve.

And don't forget she's an Emmy winner for outstanding lead actress in a drama.

But despite her success, she's yet to fully move out of her family home in Childwall.

She told OK Magazine in 2019: "There's no place I would rather be than at home in my pyjamas with my brother, watching the telly.

"That is my happy space. If you are working away a lot, you want to get back to reality.

"My family keeps me grounded and I am definitely a home bird."

Despite living all around the world when she's filming for her latest project, the Vogue cover star still lives at home with her parents.

She's been working since she was 13, but the now 27-year-old actress is a self-proclaimed home bird.

Jodie grew up in Childwall, where she still lives with her mum, dad and brother in their family home whenever she's back in the UK

Her dad is a sports massage therapist for Everton FC and her brother is an analyst for Huddersfield FC.

But despite winning worldwide fame, Jodie still lives at home when she's back in the city, because, as she once put it: “There’s no place I’d rather be”.

So when lockdown was announced, it was no surprise Jodie decided to come back up north to her family home.

According to her social media profiles, she has been passing the time by eating roast dinners, sitting on the sofa and occasionally baking a Victoria sponge cake.

She told the Daily Telegraph : "I came home to be with my family, which has been so nice.

"It's time you rarely get, and everyone's healthy, so I am just trying to embrace it.

"I guess when you can't control things you have to surrender to it and find the good parts."
