Coronation Street’s Simon star gives health update after being rushed to A&E

Coronation Street star Alex Bain has revealed on Instagram that he is doing just fine after he was rushed to A&E at the weekend.

The actor, who propelled to fame on the famous ITV soap as Simon Barlow, took to his Instagram story sharing a now deleted snap of himself at Blackburn Hospital.

Alex who has since removed his first post, followed up with a reassuring post after he'd clearly been bombarded by concerned friends, fans and loved ones.

Sharing an image of a waiting room, he instead penned: "Not where I expected to end up tonight."

Along with: "Don't worry guys it's just my ankle."

It appeared that his injury couldn't have been overly worrisome as the soap star took to his social media account to confirm that he was jetting off from Manchester Airport.

Still allowed to fly, despite his injury, Alex shared a selfie with a caption that read: "Time to see if I've still got my flight legs or something like that!"

In a separate update, it was clear that the actor had clearly done some damage to his foot as he was shown being transported via wheelchair as he waited to catch his flight.

His ankle was also strapped up in orthopaedic grey leg brace as Alex thanks the "helpful people" at the airport for assisting him on his trip.

Alex wrote: "Got a fancy new set of wheels!

"Thank you to the helpful people at Manchester Airport! @manairportuk."

last month, Alex made a public appearance with new girlfriend Mollie Lockwood as the pair attended the press night of the Addams Family together.

The pair first announced they were a couple in 2019 – just months after Alex's romance with his childhood sweetheart Levi Selby broke down,

Alex and Levi share daughter Lydia-Rose together – who the actor welcomed at age 17 after sitting his GCSE exams.
