Coronation Street 's Sally Dynevor, 56, has admitted she refused to watch co-star Sinead Tinker (Katie McGlynn) lose her battle with cancer on Friday night.
The Coronation Street cast member couldn't bring herself to watch the heartbreaking scenes after her own cancer battle, after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010.
Sally was given the all-clear after finding a lump and later receiving chemotherapy.
She told the Mirror: "I just can’t watch it."
"I think they’re doing a brilliant job, so brilliant it makes me not want to watch it.

"Only because it’s self-preservation. I don’t need to keep going there."
She added: "Even now it’s all mixed up in my head.
"I don’t think I’ve dealt with it about who this has happened to. I still do have the fear. I don’t think it ever goes. It stays with you.

"It does get better but it’s always there at the back of your mind."
Sally took six months from the ITV soap to recover, as her character Sally was also diagnosed with cancer on-screen.
The actress previously revealed that working on the soap saved her life, as she wouldn't have got herself checked out if it hadn't been for the storyline.
Meanwhile, Sinead's own battle wasn't as successful as she passed away from cervical cancer after being diagnosed for the second time, and later discovering treatment hadn't been successful.
Viewers were in tears as Sinead passed away peacefully next to her husband Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) and baby Bertie.
She left a video for her son to watch when he was older on her deathbed, leaving fans emotional as she told him to "go easy on his dad".
Corrie continues tonight at 7.30pm on ITV.
