Jones Suffers Suspected Heart Attack
The Coronation Street regular, who has also appeared on the big screen alongside Bob Hoskins in 24/7 and in hit comedy The Full Monty, was taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary in England after collapsing on set.
The 53-year-old plays loud mouthed LES BATTERSBY in the popular British soap and was eventually released after doctors carried out a number of tests.
A cast member says, "It was the biggest panic I have ever seen on the show.
"Earlier in the day, Bruce said he was feeling a bit dodgy but he went ahead with his scenes and seemed to be okay. All of a sudden he just clutched his chest and his face really contorted. He was clearly in pain."
A spokesperson for the soap says, "Bruce complained of feeling unwell. The ambulance was called as a precautionary measure. We fully expect him to make a complete recovery."
