Coronation Street's Jane Danson opens up about miscarriage

Coronation Street actress Jane Danson has opened up about losing her baby.

She revealed the news as her character on the cobbles – Leanne Battersby – is going through her own pregnancy.

The mum-of-two told the Sun: “I’m always asked if I’m broody so I’m going to be completely honest – and I kind of feel in a good place to say it – I actually lost a baby a couple of years ago.”

Jane, who has played Leanne since 1997, is the mother of two sons – Harry, 10, and Alfie, seven – with husband Robert Beck.

She said: “It does make me feel a bit sad, and it’s been difficult at times, but it’s Leanne going through it, not me.

“I’ve got two wonderful children, so I know how lucky I am.”
