"In a weird twist also ended up being in @coronationstreet last night too which I'm telling myself is the soap equivalent of being in the Marvel/DC universes. Int life funny eh."

Two weeks ago Ellena had shared that she'd filmed scenes for Corrie, writing on Instagram: "Catch this Manc in Corrie!

"Had a lovely old time back in Manchester filming a few episodes of @coronationstreet recently. Loved bringing Emily to the street and working with @calumlill and dreams."

Ellena appeared in Coronation Street as Joel Deering's secret wife Emily, who he shares a daughter named Maisie with.

Over in Walford, Ellena appeared as Fern, who was being set up as a potential new love interest for Dean Wicks.
