Coronation Street stars Georgia Taylor and Charlie de Melo have confirmed their romance by sharing a sweet snap of themselves together.

Since early February, it had been rumoured that the pair, who played on-screen couple Toyah Battersby and Imran Habeeb, were dating.

But Taylor, 43, has now shared a snap of the couple snuggling up to one another in Scotland.

She captioned the image, which showed her smiling in a woolly hat and sunglasses, with: "Birthday treat up Arthur’s Seat" referring to the ancient volcano in Edinburgh.

Fans took to the comment section to share their delight over the images and wished the soapstar Happy Birthday.

Taylor and de Melo, 33, are said to have become close in recent months following her "split" with partner Mark Letheren.

A source told The Sun said the pair had been dating for a few months, claiming: "They became great friends while playing on screen lovers in Corrie and when they found themselves single their relationship developed into romance."

The photo comes weeks after it was announced that the actress and her ex Lehren reportedly split after 14 years together last July.
