Coronation Street icon Betty Driver has been inundated with words of support as she battles pneumonia.
The 90-year-old actress who plays Weatherfield resident Betty Williams, was rushed to hospital with pneumonia earlier this week, and forums, websites and fansites have been festooned with messages wishing her the best.
Co-star Brooke Vincent, who plays Sophie Webster, tweeted: "A Special Tweet For The Amazing Betty Driver!! Stay Strong & My Thoughts Are With You ....... "
Several cast members are already believed to have visited the soap icon.
A show source told The Sun: "She's a feisty old thing and is battling like a woman half her age."
Betty was due to be filming this week, but producers have had to re-write the scenes she was set to shoot.
Some fear the star's latest health problems could see her give up her role, but the Rovers' longest-serving barmaid has insisted she loves the soap so wants to work right up until she dies.
