    Coronation Street legend Liz Dawn has been rushed to hospital with a lung condition, according to reports.

    The former actress, 74, who played long-running character Vera Duckworth in the soap, fell ill suddenly on Thursday, it is believed.

    A source told The Sun: "She’s not in a good way and her loved ones are obviously very worried."

    She had surgery to have a pacemaker fitted and admitted at the time: "My health is very bad these days."

    She was one half of a popular double act with on-screen husband Bill Tarmey who played Jack Duckworth.

    Bill died in 2012.

    Sad news - hope she recovers soon.

    However, there is an error in this article - the actress is in fact 77 (and will be 78 in November).
