Pregnant Emmerdale star Hayley Tamaddon forced to sit on the train floor for hours

The actress is seven months pregnant

Coronation Street and Emmerdale star Hayley Tamaddon was forced to sit on the floor on a long train journey - despite being seven months pregnant.

Hayley was left disappointed during her journey from London to Manchester when she was unable to get her first class booked seat.

Despite being seven months pregnant, she was forced to sit down on the floor in front of the toilets for hours on the journey.

She tweeted: "Hey @VirginTrains had quite the rotten journey home to Manc today as my 1pm was cancelled from Euston.

"At 7 months pregnant I sat outside the toilet for the whole journey.

"Staff were amazing by the way but as I had a 1st class ticket I’d like my money back. How do I do this?"

She added: "People barged past me in the carriage to get a seat! I had no chance!

"I sat outside the toilet with a nice man and his two kids and lots of other people's luggage. A bit crazy but I coped.

"@VirginTrains Staff were lovely though!!"

Hayley's fans were horrified on her behalf for the hours she was forced to spend on the floor at seven months pregnant.

One said: "I’m horrified that no-one offer their seat to a pregnant woman!"

A second said: "Wow! A FULL train and not ONE passenger gave up their seat? Shocking."

A third said: "I’m more worried that not one fellow passenger offered a seat to a pregnant lady."

However, unfortunately, others trolled Hayley and left her having to defend herself.

One said: "Shock. Celebrity (?) who is one of the people (?) has a first class ticket and can’t sit down. Join the rest of us love. You’re not special because you are pregnant. Using Twitter to gain some sympathy/ money back is very low. Grow up and get on with it. (sic)"

But the actress simply rose above it and said: "Why do you follow me?"

Hayley, 42, shared her joy at being pregnant in April after she was told she could not conceive a baby.

She tweeted in April: "EXCITING NEWS TWEET!! I'm so pleased to tell you all... I’m expecting my first child with my wonderful boyfriend Adrian!!

"I've always wanted to be a mum and didn't think I could have children. And now, at the ripe old age of 42 - I'M PREGNANT! We couldn't be happier."

She would probably be happier with a train seat!
