Brooke Vincent has revealed how Coronation Street kept her growing baby bump hidden on the soap.
The pregnant actress, who plays Sophie Webster, had her bump concealed by a pile of ironing on the ITV show.
And her bump was hidden behind a bunch of shopping bags as she walked along the cobbles chatting with her ex Kate Connor.
When the ironing prop was pointed out to her by the Conversation Street Podcast, Brooke replied with a crying-with-laughter emoji: "I think I was hidden behind one of Dev's shopping isles in the end."
One Corrie watcher said: "I think soaps should give up hiding pregnancies just makes it more obvious."
Another told the actress: "You look amazing pregnancy suits you."
And another fan messaged: "Me and my daughter love playing guess the 'bump cover'!"
Last week Brooke, 27, from Audenshaw, shared a photo of herself on a night out at Rosso restaurant at Spring Gardens, revealing that her man Kean Bryan helped her to put her shoes on and take them off for her.
"Must be the largest Dalmatian you did ever see," she said about her spotty dress.
"One of the few times I’ve been dressed with make up on and yes Kean had to put on and take my shoes off."
Brooke said an emotional goodbye to Coronation Street last month as she went on maternity leave.
Last month the mum-to-be filmed her final scene as Sophie before taking on her new role as a 'mummy.'
Brooke, who has played feisty Sophie for 15 years, received hugs and gifts from her co-stars as she left the cobbles.
She was touched to see a large gathering of cast and crew waiting to say goodbye after filming in Dev's famous corner shop.
"That is Brooke's last scene as she breaks for maternity leave," it was announced to claps and cheers.
"I feel like I'm on the tour," she joked.
"Oh jeez there's a lot of you."
In a video shared on Brooke's Instagram she received hugs from her Corrie co-stars Antony Cotton who plays Sean Tully, Mikey North who plays Gary Windass and Samia Longchambon who plays Maria Connor.
And she looked visibly moved as Sally Dynevor, who plays her on-screen mum Sally Metcalfe, stepped forward to give a touching speech about Brooke.
Brooke revealed in April that she was expecting her first child with Sheffield United footballer Kean.
