"Coronation Street" producers had to use a Ford Fiesta to cover Jennie McAlpine's baby bump.

The 34-year-old star - who plays Fiz Stape on the ITV soap - says the "Corrie" crew had to reverse a car on the cobbles set recently because her bump was on show.

She said: "We started [covering the bump] with a mug, and then a handbag. I kid you not, last week they hid it with a Ford Fiesta.

"They said, "Can we just move that car back a bit?" I said, "Is this for my bump?" They said, "Yeah, we can see it a bit, but it's going to help." "

Jennie revealed "Corrie" returnee Maureen Lipman's character Evelyn Plummer - Tyrone Dobbs" (Alan Halsall) grandmother - will be "very involved" in her alter-ego's exit storyline when she goes on maternity leave.

"Evelyn is very involved [with Fiz's exit storyline].

"She's not impressed with our family set up. She's not impressed with Fiz as a wife and mother. It doesn't go very well for the next few weeks, then the family things get a bit ... yeah."

But Jennie - who has three-year-old son Albert with husband Chris Farr - expects to return to Weatherfield after giving birth to her second child, because she is yet to find out that Fiz is getting bumped off.

Speaking on "Lorraine", she added: "So far, I haven't read any scripts where I die."
