A brave actor chose to ride Blackpool’s Big One rollercoaster during a break in filming.

Coronation Street star Julie Hesmondhalgh, who plays Hayley Cropper in the soap, tackled the ride after filming scenes for upcoming episodes on the Prom.

Julie said: “I have been on the Big One before but it was a few years ago.

“I’d forgotten how high and how frightening that first drop can be! It was a great experience and a nice change from filming.”
