Real-life Coronation Street couple Joe Duttine and Sally Carman opened up about the moment they fell in love on set.
The soap stars announced that they were engaged at the end of March after dating for two years.
Actor Joe tweeted a cute photo of the pair with glasses of champagne and an emerald ring on Sally’s finger.
He wrote: “She said yes everyone, covid-19 can f**k off…”
Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on Good Morning Britain today, Sally opened up about how they first became close to one another.
Lorraine asked whether they just ‘clicked’ on set, Sally, who plays Abi Franklin, said: “Well… slowly!
“We were friends for a while but then we started sharing puddings and I thought maybe something is on the boil.”
However, she admitted that she was pleased that they didn’t share too many scenes together.
She explained: “It’s much better just because Johnny is a bit of a joker and he’s very funny and he can put you a bit off your stride!”
Joe also spoke about actress Paula Wilcox returning to Corrie after a 51-year break from the ITV soap to play Geoff Metcalfe’s former partner Elaine.
“I met her in the canteen, she seems like a nice lady,” Joe said.
Geoff, played by Ian Bartholemew, has spent months abusing his wife Yasmeen, who is played by Shelley King.
A source told The Sun : “If Yasmeen pursues the defence that she snapped after endless cruelty at the hands of Geoff, then Elaine’s testimony could prove invaluable.
“But as this is Corrie it won’t be plain sailing, there’ll be quite a few twists and turns along the way.”
