Here at partypoker, we believe that anyone can learn how to play poker, even if they don’t have the faintest clue about this marvellous game, which is why we’ve launched Big Bluff where four British celebrities are being taught the ropes before being set loose on a live final table held at the Grand Prix Poker Tour Brighton leg.
One of those celebrities is none other than 28-year-old actress and model, Jorgie Porter.
Born on Christmas Day in 1987, in Trafford, Greater Manchester, Jorgie is the youngest of our Big Bluff celebrities. A former ballet dancer who attended The Hammond School in Chester, Jorgie is best known for her portrayal of Theresa McQueen in the Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks.
Jorgie joined the cast in November 2008, and played her character until earlier this year, leaving at the end of her contract to pursue an acting and modelling career in Hollywood. Since leaving Hollyoaks, the 5’ 2” star has appeared in a one-off edition of Are You Being Served?
The bubbly actress attended a masterclass at Dusk Till Dawn where Simon Trumper showed the four celebrities some poker basics, before putting them to the test with a couple of sit & go tournaments.
Jorgie seemed to pick up the game quickly, but let slip that she was pretending that she didn’t know what she was doing in an attempt to lure her three opponents into a false sense of security; a solid game plan if you as us!
