Fans of Coronation Street were shocked to learn Jane Danson’s true age.
Yesterday, November 8, was the actress’s birthday. She portrays Leanne Battersby in the show. On social media, she has shared several greetings from her pals.
As she posted the required birthday selfie to Instagram, Jane could be seen grinning broadly.
“Thank you for so many nice birthday greetings,” she said in her letter. I’ve had a great day 😍. When you are thankful to be back home in your pajamas by 7:15 after attending a birthday tea, you are acknowledging that you are growing older (45).
In addition to the flurry of birthday wishes for the former Dancing on Ice star, Jane’s age was also a hot topic in the comments section.
A commenter said, “Happy birthday, darling ❤️❤️.” You appear to be a day over thirty. Please keep it hidden.
Another said, “Jane doesn’t age.” You look fantastic.
This happens after Corrie actress Samia Longchambon, who plays Maria Connor, posted a collage of photos on her Instagram Stories that included several images of Jane taken over the course of their many years of friendship.
Since 1997, Jane has alternated between the role of Leanne. Leanne, the sister of Georgia Taylor’s Toyah, is frequently spotted working in the Bistro alongside Nick and Ryan.
Two years ago, during Super Soap Week, Leanne was involved in a storyline that ultimately led to Natasha Blakeman’s (Rachel Leskovac) death.
In her birthday snap Jane was seen cuddling up to husband Robert Beck.
Jane and Robert initially met at the first-ever British Soap Awards in 1999, getting married at the Gibbon Bridge Hotel in Lancashire in December 2005.
Jane has previously said of her husband: ‘Rob’s absolutely my best friend in the world. We’ve only had about two rows in 20 years.
‘I’m not saying we don’t get on each other’s nerves sometimes, but we’re a strong team and we’ve always allowed each other to be individuals.’
