Coronation Street's Jennie McAlpine cut off in 'awkward moment' on Loose Women

She appeared on the show earlier today

Coronation Street's Jennie McAlpine was 'awkwardly' shut down during her appearance on Loose Women today (15.07.19) as she went to say something just before an advert break.

The Corrie star joined Andrea McClean, Coleen Nolan, Brenda Edwards and Jane Moore to talk about her return to the cobbles and her second child.

Forgetting to mention something she wanted to say, Jennie thanked them at the end and thenjumped in saying: "Oh am I allowed to mention something really quickly? No? No?"

Andrea shook her head telling her there wasn't time and Jennie asked "Are you sure?"

Andrea told her: "No we have to go to a break now."

Viewers noticed the awkward moment.

During the chat, Jennie revealed she was thrown in at the deep end for her Coronation Street return.

The 35-year-old soap star, who plays Fiz Stape on the ITV show, returned to the cobbles set earlier this month after going on maternity leave to give birth to her second child, eight-month-old Hilda, and she admitted she had to settle right back into filming without being eased in.

She said: "I've got out of the habit of [learning lines], but actually it as just like riding a bike and I kind of just did it.

"They do that to you at Corrie - I think they do it on purpose, they're a bit cruel to be kind - they just threw me right in, day one."

While Jennie, who also has four-year-old son Albert with her husband Chris Farr, is finding the balance between her work and home life, she conceded she wishes she had more time to focus on each aspect.

She explained: "I think the ideal situation, if you could have it, is parallel universes where I could be at work all the time, which I love, and at home with my babies all the time which I love as well."

The actress previously admitted she was nervous about being back on set, but bosses had reassured her that there wouldn't be too much pressure.

She said: "It feels a bit like going back to school after the summer holiday, I've got butterflies. I'm worried I don't have enough space left in my brain to learn all my lines. But the producers have promised I'll be eased in gently."

Hilda will be heading to the same nursery Albert went to because there is no creche on the Corrie set - but Jennie admitted it is probably for the best because she wouldn't get much work done if there was one.

She added: "It's probably a good thing Corrie doesn't have a crèche. I'd always be disappearing from set to see her. We have a great support network around us too, who can help. We're very lucky."
