Samia Longchambon "still looks up to" Jane Danson after 25 years of friendship.

The 36-year-old actress has paid tribute to her "Coronation Street" co-star - who plays Leanne Battersby on the soap - on her 40th birthday today (08.11.18), and admits she is "lucky" to have the upcoming "Dancing on Ice" contestant in her life.

She wrote on Instagram: "Happy 40th birthday to my diamond of a #BFF @realjanedanson ..25 years of friendship in and I still look up to you! Beautiful inside and out always! With each other through all life's good and bad bits, I'm a lucky girl to have you in my life...can't wait to celebrate this weekend!! Love you Jane (sic)"

Catherine Tyldesley - who played Jane's on-screen half-sister Eva Price for seven years on the cobbles until earlier this year - also sent the star her well wishes, admitting she is the "one of the most beautiful souls" anyone could ever meet.

She wrote: "Happy Birthday to my gorgeous sister @realjanedanson - one of the most beautiful souls inside and out you could ever wish to meet. Love you so much darling girl. Have the BEST day xxxxx (sic)"

He wrote: "Happy 40th Birthday to my @RealJaneDanson wife..! Such an amazing woman ...She can even fit in all her old clothes ....xxxx (sic)"
