Coronation Street actress Elle Mulvaney has shared her love for a soap co-star in a heartfelt Instagram post.

The 21-year-old, who has played Amy Barlow in the long-running ITV drama for 14 years, often keeps fans updated on her social media pages. Away from the cameras, Elle is friends with a number of her soap colleagues and regularly shares snaps of herself and her friends socialising away from work.

A new photo has appeared featuring Elle posing alongside her on-screen cousin Alex Bain, who plays Simon Barlow. Alex is about to leave the soap after first joining way back in 2009.
