Act it out in the loft (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

attic

'the loft' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'act it out' is the wordplay.
'out' is an anagram indicator (out can mean wrong or inaccurate).
'act'+'it'='actit'
'actit' anagrammed gives 'ATTIC'.

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for attic that I've seen before include "Upper chamber" , "of Greek region" , "High level of" , "Loft room" , "room with lots of junk?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror and The Daily Express.
