Coronation Street star Samia Longchambon was left struggling to smile during her latest photoshoot as she suffered an accident just before getting in front of the camera. The ITV soap actress wasn't working on the cobbles, where she plays Maria Windass, at the time.

She was getting some new pictures taken and while why and what they will be for is currently under wraps, Samia revealed she carried on through the pain after suffering a fall and spraining her ankle.

Taking to her Instagram Story on Thursday (May 9), the 41-year-old shared a photo of her ankle that was covered in ice packs. "Fell over and sprained my ankle just before a photoshoot..." Samia explained in a written message alongside the snap.

"Smiled (grimaced) my way through today," she continued before apologising to her co-star for the use of one of her possessions which had been placed onto her leg. "Sorry! Pinched your eye mask to hold the ice pack on @msjodieprenger."

Samia then shared how she was well looked after by some of Corrie's team who are found working behind the scenes as she said: "Thanks for looking after me @rachel_thebeautyspot @gillywalshy @daniellebaguley."

Luckily, the soap star was soon back at home and shared a follow-up post in which she could be seen outside in the garden of her phone with her foot bandaged and up being rested. "Resting [up arrow emoji]," Samia wrote alongside the post as she made the most of the dry spring weather.

It comes after Samia was flooded with compliments last week as she was seen posing for a selfie while rounding up some of the moments that didn't make it to social media in April. She took to Instagram with a string of snaps taken throughout the month as it came to an end, including a gorgeous selfie, a snipped from a recent retreat she attended and moments she shared with her children, daughter Freya and son Yves.

Samia also shared a sweet snap of herself and Corrie co-star Jane Danson after they enjoyed a recent night out together before she captioned the post: "Bits from April..."

Her Corrie co-stars were among the first to respond, with Abi Webster actress Sally Carman-Duttine writing: "Samia, you are," alongside a string of love heart eyes emojis. Soap legend Kate Ford, who unexpectedly left Weatherfield last month as Tracy Barlow, replied: "What a beauty."

And her fans and followers were also responding to the post. @prinny1968 said: "Gorgeous." @sidal201 commented: "Beautiful." @cathyfulcher_ wrote: "Beautiful pictures." @the_saint1957 shared: "Gorgeous pictures Samia, you never seem to get any older."
