Her followers rushed to the comments section to wish her a speedy recovery.

One person told her: "Oh god bless you …looks sore love."

Another said exclaimed: "Oh No!!! What's happened Tracie?? Hope You're OK?? Take Care."

While a third tweeted: "That looks blooming painful, Tracie!"

A forth asked her: "Oh jeez. What the…happened ? Hugs to you."

A fifth advised: "Arnica will bring the bruising out quickly, if that helps."

While another follower gasped: "Oh my goodness! That looks awful and very painful. Ice and Arnica gel every few hours for sure."

And a seventh said: "No Tracie , make up will just make it look worse I think, just crack on."

Tracie didn't explain where the injury came from.

Tracie Bennett has reprised her role on the cobbles after 22 years, but said coming to a "brand-new" set was "fantastic" for her.

The 59-year-old actress first appeared in Coronation Street in 1982 as Sharon Gaskell, Rita’s foster daughter.

She left the role two years later in 1984, before returning in 1999.

Her extensive theatre career has included a role in She Loves Me at the Savoy Theatre, for which she took home the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Supporting Performance in a Musical.

She’s also appeared in everything from Les Misérables, High Society and Hairspray.

Returning to Corrie after so many years was "emotional", Tracie admitted, but she said she was "lucky" that she was coming into a brand-new set rather than the former Granada studios.

"It was emotional for me, because I’m that type," she explained. "I think it would have been really hard if it was Granada because without that I probably wouldn’t be working now, to be honest.

"That was a proper jumpstart for me because I was fresh out of drama school. You had six cameras and one little street and just about 12 or 13 of us.

"I went through so much development as a person from 1982 to 1984, in real life as well. I’m glad it’s all brand-new now because it’s a bigger [street] and I can make new memories, which is fantastic for me, like a new start, almost."
