TV stars flood Instagram with messages of support for the Corey actress



Ruth Langsford, Adam Woodyatt and Barbara Knox were among TV stars who sent supportive messages to Coronation Street actress Sally Ann Matthews, who completed her 50th 5km run for charity.

Etheuse, who plays Jenny Connor in the ITV drama, challenged herself to run 5km as she approached her 50th birthday last year.



After celebrating her big day, the actress decided to keep running and complete a 5km run to match her age the next year, with the aim of raising £5,000 for five different charities.

Celebrities including TV presenter Richard Arnold, actor Colson Smith and former I’m A Celebrity Jungle king Joe Pascale flooded her Instagram account with video messages of support.



On Wednesday, she was joined by her co-stars outside the Coronation Street set in Media City as she completed her final 5km, including actress Millie Gibson, who ran in support.

Mathews, who could not run for the bus before starting the challenge, said: “I always thought of myself as a running joke rather than a runner, but after covering the first 5 km I thought How great it would be to keep going, get fit. In the process and more importantly raise some money for worthy charities.



“Thanks so much to everyone who donated and sent me messages of support, it’s helped me speed up the sidewalks.”

Matthews has raised over £7,000 for the charities Acting for Others, Action Against Cancer, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, The Matt Hampson Foundation and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
