Jennie 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." "

The actress also teased that Maureen Lipman's character Evelyn Plummer will be heavily involved with Fiz's exit storyline as she heads off for maternity leave, but she 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.

She added: "So far, I haven't read any scripts where I die."
