Soap star Jennifer Ellison in sea rescue
Soap actress Jennifer Ellison and her husband were rescued after their inflatable boat had engine failure.
The 16ft vessel carrying the former Brookside star and Robbie Tickle was drifting towards Moelfre Island, off Anglesey, North Wales, when a lifeboat crew arrived to tow them back to shore.
The alarm was raised just before 11.30am and Moelfre inshore RNLI lifeboat was launched.
Afterwards, the star posted a picture of the incident tweeted: "Just been sea fishing with my hubby!! Needed to be rescued!!! Terrifying! Thanks so much RNLI!"
RNLI coxswain Anthony Barclay said: "After all the interest it has generated, I wanted to thank her for helping to raise awareness of the work of the RNLI."
