The Liverpool actress Jennifer Ellison's been rescued by a lifeboat crew after getting into difficulties off the North Wales coast.

Jennifer was on board an inflatable boat with husband Robbie Tickle when it suffered engine failure and began drifting towards Moelfre island off Anglesey.

The inshore RNLI lifeboat was launched and the vessel was towed back to Moelfre beach.

Shortly after the rescue, Jennifer posted a picture of the incident and tweeted:

‘Just been sea fishing with my hubby!! Needed to be rescued!!! Terrifying! Thanks so much RNLI!’

RNLI Coxswain Anthony Barclay said: "At the time of the rescue we didn’t realise it was Jennifer on board, but after all the interest it has generated, I wanted to thank her for helping to raise awareness of the work of the RNLI charity and for showing her gratitude to the RNLI crew.

"‘They had the misfortune of suffering engine failure whilst out sea fishing but were towed back in without any complications. We’re always happy to help when the call comes and never know quite what situation we may face."
