From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Jane Danson (born October 4, 1978) is a British actress. She was born in Bury, Greater Manchester.

Her long term boyfriend is former Brookside actor Robert Beck and she currently stars in Coronation Street.

Danson first came to prominence in the acclaimed ITV1 children's television drama Children's Ward, playing the role of Paula from 1995 to 1997. In 1997 she landed a part in the top rated ITV1 soap opera Coronation Street, playing teenage temptress Leanne Battersby. The Battersby family were dubbed the "Neighbours From Hell" and made an immediate impact on the long running show's loyal audience. Danson left the show in 2000 - a year which also saw her win the Rear of the Year award - not long after a harrowing storyline that saw her character become a drug addict.

Danson's next role was as a nurse in the drama series A&E, before joining the cast of ITV1 police drama The Bill in 2002. Danson portrayed Gemma Osbourne - the first lesbian police officer in the show's history, however the role was short lived and she left in 2003.

In 2004 she rejoined the cast of Coronation Street, reprising the role of Leanne.
