Coronation Street star Alison King is engaged to her long-term boyfriend, it has been revealed. The actress, who plays Carla Connor in the soap, reportedly got engaged at the beginning of August – but is yet to confirm the happy news. The 46-year-old has kept her relationship out of the public eye, and the identity of her husband-to-be isn’t known. However, she is said to be over the moon after his proposal earlier this month.
Alison was previously engaged to Coronation Street sound technician Adam Huckett. The couple started dating in 2007 and announced their engagement in 2011, but split the following year. They are parents to daughter Daisy, ten.

Meanwhile, Chesney Brown actor Sam Aston tied the knot in May, and Sarah-Louise Platt actress Tina O’Brien married her long-term partner Adam Crofts in a romantic New Year’s Eve ceremony attended by co-stars including Jack P. Shepherd, Helen Worth and Lucy Fallon.
