Blood too real for TV nurse.
Danson, who shot to fame as tearaway teenager Leanne Battersby in Coronation Street, returned to TV screens this week as nurse Samantha Docherty in ITV series A&E.
In her new role she sets the pulses racing of male staff at St Victor's Hospital. But in real life a trip to Manchester Blood Donor Centre with two co-stars to promote giving blood proved too much.
The 22-year-old began to feel queasy and fainted into the arms of real- life nurses.
A spokeswoman for Granada Television, makers of the series, said: "Jane had never given blood before. She felt it was worthwhile and will do it again despite fainting.
"She had a cup of tea and a biscuit and was fine after that."
