Cleaver, who has played Eileen Grimshaw on the long running ITV soap since 2000, appeared alongside Thorp on the programme when the latter portrayed Nicola Rubinstein, the daughter of Eileen's husband Pat Phelan, from 2017 to 2019.

In a picture shared to Cleaver's 150,000 Instagram followers, the former I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! contestant reunited with her co-star – and a very special third person.

Following the birth of her baby last week, Thorp took to Instagram to announce her arrival.

"We are delighted to say that we recently welcomed our beautiful baby daughter into the world," she wrote.

"Everything they say about birth being a rollercoaster of emotions is true," she continued, adding: "We're shattered and smitten and everything in between."

She also shared an important message concerning the current crisis in Gaza, writing, "It doesn't feel right to share our news on here without also acknowledging how fortunate we are that our baby is safe," and adding a link for people to donate to the Gaza appeal.

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