'Coronation Street' actress Kate Ford thinks giving birth on-screen was the most embarrassing scene she's ever had to act out

Kate Ford thinks giving birth on-screen was the most embarrassing scene she's ever had to act out.

The 'Coronation Street' star - who portrays scheming temptress Tracy Barlow in the ITV1 soap - admitted having to moan and groan in front of a room full of producers and directors was an "awful" experience.

She said: "Giving birth to Amy was without a doubt the most embarrassing scene I've ever filmed. I had to record a track of birthing noises for them to insert at relevant bits.

"It was awful. There was a whole male crew standing around while I stood there groaning. It was like 'When Harry Met Sally'."

The 34-year-old actress - whose alter-ego is pregnant with Steve McDonald's (Simon Gregson) child once again - explained she finds it difficult to understand her character's varied emotions at times.

Kate added to Closer magazine: "I don't know what is wrong with those two - they don't learn. Two one-night stands, two babies! Tracy is mortified.

"But she also has this glimmer of hope that it will bring them closer. And she loves being a mum to Amy, so she has lots of different emotions."
