The Coronation Street star Jennie McAlpine has given birth to a baby girl.

The 34 year old, who plays Fiz Brown in the long-running soap and who also appeared in 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!' shared the happy news on Twitter:

The new arrival has been named Hilda - and fans of Coronation Street have spotted that her name could be in tribute to the late Corrie star Jean Alexander.

Jean, who passed away in 2016, played Hilda Ogden on the soap from 1964 until 1987.
