Maura recently revealed how she had to give up her wild party lifestyle - admitting her big nights out almost got her fired.

She opened up about having to keep her "wild" side at bay in order to keep in job.

Maura told The Sunday Times: "Oh, there’s a lot of wildness there. There are horns growing out of my head and I’m always pushing them down and putting sticking plasters over them.

"I love going out, but have to try to keep a lid on it, as the problem is that if I go out, I just don’t want to come home."
