Corrie’s Catherine Tyldesley was the subject of a mishap recently when her hair caught fire.

The actress, who plays Eva Price in the ITV1 soap, was celebrating her 29th birthday when candles from her Disney themed birthday cake ignited her hair.

Co-star Antony Cotton – who plays Sean Tully – rushed to put out the flames before they spread any further.

Taking to Twitter, Cotton later posted a photo of Tyldesley with the cake, saying: “Birthday update: @Cath_Tyldesley has just set her hair on fire. Actual fire. I put it out but the #privateroom smells of burning bush…”

Tyldesley added of the incident: “Can’t believe my hair caught fire on my birthday cake! God damn you hairspray!

“Tonight @antonycotton saved my life… Now my hair smells.. Bad…”
