A SOAP star was spotted in Warrington last week.

Lucy-Jo Hudson,  known for her roles in Coronation Street and Holly Oaks, took to Instagram to share a few snippets of her week.

One of the pictures included the 40-year-old and her three-year-old son Carter near the pool at David Lloyd in Great Sankey.

She also revealed in the caption that her family paid a visit to Bents Garden and Home in Glazebury.

Lucy-Jo, who reportedly lives in Cheshire, said both trips were alternatives to taking Cater on holiday  - which she has been unable to do so yet.

The caption reads: “A little bit of my life this week.

“Isn’t life so much better when the sun is shining?

“We haven’t been able to take carter away so we’ve found alternatives… Swimming at @davidlloydwarrington and playing in the sand at @bentsgardenhome… Carter has loved it! So have we!”
