CORRIE star Georgia May foote is reported to have collapsed as she waited to film a scene for the ITV1 soap.

The 23-year-old actress, who plays Katy Armstrong, is said to have hurt her head as she fell to the ground after 'fainting'.

Paramedics treated her for 30 minutes before she was rushed to Salford Royal Hospital as a 'precaution' after a co-star raised the alarm.

The Bury-born actress, who lives in Bolton, only recently spoke of her upset at leaving the soap, which she has been a part of for four years.

At the time she said: “I have had an amazing four years on Coronation Street. I have had some fantastic storylines and worked with some wonderful actors.

“I am very excited about what the future holds. Whilst I will be sorry to say goodbye to Weatherfield, I am looking forward to the challenge of new roles.”
