5 Corrie Couples Who Got Together in Real Life

News in this week that Coronation Street actors Daniel Brocklebank (Billy the vicar Mayhew) and Rob Mallard (Daniel Osbourne) are dating, made me think about other times that Corrie couples have got together in real-life.

Inspired by comments left on the blog post, here we go with another five Corrie couples who got together after meeting on-screen on our favourite soap.

Alan Halsall (Tyrone Dobbs) and Lucy-Jo Hudson (Katy Harris) are married after meeting when working on the set of Coronation Street.

Tina O'Brien (Sarah Platt) and Ryan Thomas (Jason Grimshaw) met on the set, and ended up married too. They're now separated.

Anne Kirkbride (Deirdre Barlow) met and married David Beckett after he turned up on Coronation Street as a joiner called Dave Barton.

Pat Phoenix (Elsie Tanner) married her Coronation Street co-star Alan Browning (Alan Howard). 

And even Tony Warren himself enjoyed a relationship with one of the actors in the show. For several years during the 60s, his partner was Ernst Walder, who played Ivan Cheveski in Coronation Street.

I did not know that about Tony Warren and Ernst Walder

Didn't the actress who played Hayley meet her husband during the first Roy & Hayley wedding? He played one of the photographers who hounded them, from memory.

Weren't Philip Middlemiss (Des Barnes) and Alison King (Carla) a couple for awhile?

To edit my post: barmaid was Geena (not Gina) Gregory.
