LORRAINE Kelly became a daredevil stunt-woman for her cameo in Coronation Street – with actor Ben Price revealing she had a dramatic action scene.
The 47-year-old star, who plays Nick Tilsley, explained: “She’s got a big part in this storyline. She’s got a stunt. She’s in the best family she could possibly be with – The Platts.”
Daytime telly icon Lorraine, 59, is set to make a long-anticipated appearance on Corrie playing herself in a scene shot on a boating lake.
She aired some of the backstage footage on her show yesterday, where it was revealed she was given both a body double for the dramatic scenes – and a Hollywood-style Winnebago.
Lorraine raved: “What an amazing day. I’ve had an absolute blast. Best day of my life, fantastic. All the crew and the cast could not have been nicer to me.”
She will appear when the Platt family visit the same holiday camp as her after grandma Audrey pays for the family to enjoy a getaway – and gets clocked by Gail.

When David and Nick fall out, Gail leaves them arguing and goes off on a mission to hunt down her idol Lorraine – with what producers promise are hilarious consequences.
While bosses haven’t released any more details about what Lorraine’s stunt is, given her scenes are filmed on a lake and involve a pedalo, there is likely to be some kind of waterborne collision.
Lorraine has been ticking dream experiences off her “bucket list” ahead of her 60th birthday in November – with an appearance in Corrie one of her top targets.
Sarah Platt star Tina O’Brien told her how locals were stunned when she, Ben, Jack P Shepherd and Lucy Fallon walked into the local pub after filming the scenes on location.

The 35-year-old explained: “We stayed in one of the lodges where we were filming and we went to a local pub.
“Me, Jack, Ben and Lucy walked in. Four of the Platts, their faces were like [shocked].”
