Coronation Street’s Paula Lane has admitted she hates wearing her fake baby bump.

The actress who plays Kylie Platt in the ITV soap said the bump for her pregnant character even gives her a rash.

She said: “It’s a nightmare, I absolutely hate the bump.

“I keep having to be remeasured for different ones because it’s getting bigger and bigger. I think I’ve just been measured for my eight month one. I don’t think I could get any bigger, but they’re going, ‘Oh, but you’re so lovely and petite and this is what it’d be like’.

“It itches me, I go home with a rash on my tummy. I’m not in a hurry to get one of them in real life, anyway.”

Paula, 27, did say she was looking forward to the birth scenes and will be helped by her midwife mum to get a realistic effect.

She said: “I’m quite looking forward to that but it’s a bit daunting at the same time filming a labour scene. But I’ll try my best.

“My mum’s a midwife so I can only get good tips from her.”
