An Anglesey RNLI lifeboat sprung into action this morning to assist former Brookside actress Jennifer Ellison and her husband.
Volunteer crew members responded following reports that a 16ft inflatable had suffered engine failure.
The inshore RNLI lifeboat was launched and the vessel was towed back to Moelfre beach.
Jennifer, who had been out sea fishing with her husband Robbie Tickle, later tweeted her thanks to crew members and also posted a picture of the incident, which she described as 'terrifying!'
A few hours later, RNLI also tweeted about the rescue:
RNLI coxswain Anthony Barclay said he was 'touched' the couple had taken the trouble to thank the RNLI via the social networking site, and said he welcomed the opportunity to meet them.
The actress was able to joke about the incident later, tweeting to say: "Well I must say that dinner made it all worth while!! Fresh mackerel caught by the hubby."
