Angela Mellissa Griffin (born 19 July 1976) is a English actress and television presenter, who has been active on British television since the early 1990s.

Between 1992 and 1998, she appeared in the long-running ITV soap opera, Coronation Street, as hairdresser Fiona Middleton. She made a guest appearance in 2019. Subsequently, she joined the original cast of the BBC medical drama series, Holby City, as staff nurse Jasmine Hopkins, but left at the end of the third series in 2001, as the next series would be longer. Griffin has also appeared in the BBC dramas, Cutting It, and Down to Earth.

From 2006 to 2010, she appeared as Art teacher and head of pastoral care, Kim Campbell, opposite former Cutting It co-star Jason Merrells and former Coronation Street co-star Denise Welch, in the BBC One school-based drama series, Waterloo Road. She took a break during the third series in late 2007/early 2008, but returned to the role for the fourth series in 2009. However, she left once again at the end of the fifth series to concentrate on her new daytime show on Sky1.

Griffin was born to an English mother and Caribbean father from St Kitts and Nevis.
