ACTRESS Jennifer Ellison and her husband were rescued after their inflatable boat's engine failed during a fishing trip.
The 16ft vessel carrying the former Brookside star and Robbie Tickle was drifting towards Moelfre Island yesterday (Wednesday, August 21) when a lifeboat crew arrived to tow them back to Moelfre beach, on the main island.
RNLI coxswain Anthony Barclay said: "At the time of the rescue we didn't realise it was Jennifer on board, but after all the interest it has generated, I wanted to thank her for helping to raise awareness of the work of the RNLI charity and for showing her gratitude to the RNLI crew.
"They had the misfortune of suffering engine failure whilst out sea fishing but were towed back in without any complications.
"We're always happy to help when the call comes and never know quite what situation we may face."
The alarm was raised just before 11.30am.
Shortly afterwards, Jennifer posted a picture of the incident and tweeted: "Just been sea fishing with my hubby!! Needed to be rescued!!! Terrifying! Thanks so much RNLI!"
