In 2020, the actor, who shares three children with ex-fiancée Lauren Shippey, revealed that he planned to marry Treweek one day amid engagement rumours at the time.

"We will get married but we're not engaged yet," he told OK!. "We want to do all those big milestones like marry, have kids and buy a house, we're just not quite there yet.

"I didn't want to scare Hanni off but we did have a discussion about marriage and children early on, as you need to know you want the same things."

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
