Coronation Street veteran Betty Driver has been admitted to hospital for a "private medical matter".

The 90-year-old actress - who plays Rovers Return barmaid Betty Williams - is the show's oldest star, and has been a fixture in Weatherfield since 1969.

Last year the Corrie stalwart was treated for a chest infection.

TV favourite Betty is famed for her character's hotpot.

A Coronation Street spokesman said he could not comment on her hospital visit.

A show source confirmed she had been admitted to hospital but said it was a "private medical matter".

Last year, as the soap celebrated its 50th anniversary, she insisted she could never retire from the show.
