Met on the Set

These real-life romances began on The Cobbles

Tina O’Brien (our Sarah Platt) and Ryan Thomas (our Jason Grimshaw) are an item. Previously, Tina was dating Bruno Langley (Jason’s on-screen brother Todd.) Since there are only two Grimshaw brothers, we can assume she hasn’t moved on to a third.

Nikki Sanderson (our Candice Stowe) has taken up with Danny Young (our Warren Baldwin.) As we speak, this romance remains tabloid fodder. Will they split up or won’t they? A nation hangs in the balance.

Jennifer James (our Gina Gregory) married Lee Boardman (our Jez Quigley) a month after they met on the set. Both actors have since left The Street. But not each other.

Lucy-Jo Hudson (our Katy Harris) is dating Alan Halsall (our Tyrone Dobbs.) Rumour has it that the Corrie mechanic is "handy with tools."

Suranne Jones (our Karen McDonald) and Jonathan Wrather (our Joe Carter) heated up the small screen. Their popcorn passion carried over into real life but they’ve since split up. Karen has moved on to EastEnders star Marc Bannerman. She’s also been linked to David (I'm a lay-dee ) Walliams of ‘Little Britain.’

Anne Kirkbride (our Deirdre) is married to David Beckett who played one of her many on-screen boyfriends, plumber Dave Barton. We can only guess that he steamed up her spectacles.

Julie Hesmondhalgh (our Hayley Cropper) met her husband Ian Kershaw in her first week on the show. Ian played a Weatherfield Gazette reporter.

By the time you read this, any of these Corrie canoodlings could be history. Can anyone update or add to this list?

As long as Samia Ghadia (our Maria) is still single there is hope for me

Wow! Doesn't Tina O’Brien (our Sarah Platt) look great? I had no idea that Tina and Ryan Thomas (our Jason Grimshaw) were an item. They're beautiful people.

I knew about Tina and Bruno, but I had no clue she has taken up with Ryan now.

Aww, Gina... I miss Gina. :(
