She wiped tears from her eyes and said: "I'm so proud, so proud to have him on this wall."

The 44-year-old actress tragically lost Archie at 21 weeks and five days into her pregnancy back in February of 2009.

"12 years. 12 years of wishing," she wrote earlier this year.

"Wishing we had seen you open your eyes, wishing we had seen you smile, wishing we had heard you laugh, wishing we had heard your voice. Wishing I had heard you say “I love you mummy” wishing above all wishes that you were here, where you belong. Too many wishes to write down."

She quit the band the following year and in 2006 made her debut on the cobbles. After 13 years playing Michelle Connor, she left Coronation Street in December 2019.

She told co-host Gethin Jones: "We were expecting that the cancer had spread because of the later PSA blood results. The PSA levels had risen again in his blood.

"We were just concerned at how far it had spread and whether or not they were going to be able to give him anymore treatment.

"The good news was although it has spread, it's not gone to any of his organs so they were able to offer him another form of treatment which is called radium."
