She told Digital Spy: ‘It felt like I was leaving when we first shut down. To go back into a building that was getting fuller again was lovely. Everyone was so courteous to each other and helpful and selfless – they were super kind to us.

‘At the end of the day, unprompted, there was a round of applause and that was really emotional. That usually only happens on special occasions like someone leaving or going on maternity leave.’

Jane is involved in a harrowing storyline involving Leanne’s son Oliver’s battle with mitochondrial disease. 

Mitochondrial disease affects the heart, brain, muscles and lungs and can lead to seizures, atypical cerebral palsy, autistic features, developmental problems, fainting and temperature instability.

Leanne was recently left devastated when she was told that Olivier has an incurable form of the disease in Monday’s episode. 

Leanne and her husband Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) were left reeling and she soon lashed out at those around her while struggling to come to terms with the news.

As the episode went on, Leanne ultimately broke down, unable to cope with the thought of losing her young son. 

Speaking previously on Loose Women, Jane said: ‘This storyline had a huge sense of responsibility, as this is someone’s story.

‘Myself and Simon Gregson, who plays Steve, have had lots of messages from people going thought it. So we have a responsibility to get it right.

‘Not only the medical side of things but the human side too, which is obviously my responsibility.’ 

The soap star also revealed she and Simon did a lot of research for the role and spoke to Liz Curtis, from The Lily Foundation, who lost her own daughter Lily to the disease. 

On being scared about her job over the storyline, Jane said: ‘It’s not so much about being scared about losing the job. In this industry, there’s never a guarantee. 

‘I was more worried which direction it would go, I worried how she’ll cope if it came to the worst.’
