AN East Lancashire actress is at the centre of a Coronation Street storyline that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

Cobbles star Fiz Brown, played by Rawtenstall’s Jennie McAlpine, 28, will suffer from deadly CO poisoning from a faulty gas boiler.

Viewers will see Tyrone Dobbs unlawfully try and fix Fiz’s boiler before she is found unconscious on New Year’s Eve. Jennie hopes the storyline will help raise awareness of the silent killer.

She said: “Carbon monoxide is deadly and it’s important that as many people know about it as possible.

“The Gas Safe Register told us about lots of instances where people have used a friend or someone recommended to them to work on their gas appliances and this has resulted in life- threatening consequences.”
