She's going to be busy

Jennie McApline has only just returned to Coronation Street following her maternity leave, but she’s already getting stuck in to another new roles too.

Keeping herself busy, Jennie has revealed she’s going to be hosting the parent podcast for CBeebies show The Baby Club.

The Baby Club is hosted by Giovanna Fletcher and encourages parents and carers to explore with their babies through song, story and play.

Fans were thrilled with the news, with one writing: “So exciting!”

Another added: “Congrats, will be tuning in.”

“Congrats Jennie, you will be awesome,” said a third.

Jennie was full of excitement on the first day of recording as she also posted a picture of herself with Andy from CBeebies, who she said her little boy is a big fan of.

Jennie returned to Coronation Street filming earlier this month and shared a picture with her cobbles family.

It showed her with Sam Aston, who plays her on-screen brother Chesney Brown, Andy Whyment, who plays her ex-bofriend Kirk Sutherland, and Alan Halsall, who plays her boyfriend Tyrone Dobbs.

Jennie left Coronation Street last year to go on maternity leave.

The actress welcomed her second child, a baby girl named Hilda, in October with her husband Chris Farr.

The couple also have a four-year-old son named Albert.

On screen, Fiz left the cobbles with daughter Hope to take her daughter to Birmingham in the hope her bad behaviour could be dealt with in a specialist unit.
