Corrie actress gives birth to her second child

Former Corrie star Debra Stephenson has had a baby daughter.

It’s a second child for the actress, who already has a four-year-old son, Max, with her husband James Duffield.

Debra, 34, had to be rushed to a London hospital yesterday as the baby was two weeks premature.

The actress, who played Frankie Baldwin in the hit ITV soap, quit the programme last year, after allegations of a flirtation with her co-star Bradley Walsh. She has since patched things up with her husband.

A friend tells The Daily Mirror: ‘It’s been a tough few months but Debra is ecstatic to be a mum again. Mother and baby are doing well.’
