Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley has narrowly escaped serious injury after she was involved in a car crash.

The 30-year-old actress, who plays Eva Price in the popular soap, was in a dangerous four-car collision on the M62 near Manchester. However, she escaped the incident without getting hurt.

Speaking to the Mirror newspaper, a friend of Catherine said that she was left "heavily shaken".

They added: "It's very scary – it's really knocked her confidence.

"It's a very busy stretch of motorway and Cath relies on it, so the incident has given her a real fright.

"Fortunately she wasn't going very fast as the traffic was so heavy.

"It could easily have been catastrophic."

The pal added: "She's taken it as a valuable lesson."
