The candles on the Disney-themed cake got too close to her hair, and quickly set it alight.

Antony Cotton - the actress's Coronation Street co-star - rushed to put out the flames before they spread any further.

Cotton later posted a photo of Tyldesley with the cake, saying: "Birthday update: @Cath_Tyldesley has just set her hair on fire. Actual fire. I put it out but the #privateroom smells of burning bush..."

"Tonight @antonycotton saved my life... Now my hair smells.. Bad..."

Tyldesley recently described herself as "Mr Bean with boobs" due to her general clumsiness.
