Alison King has reportedly been forced to cancel her wedding to fiancé David Stuckley due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Coronation Street star, who plays Carla Connor in the ITV soap, had been planning to tie the knot in Greece at the end of May, but the couple have been left with no choice but to cancel amid the current lockdown and travel restrictions preventing both them and their guests from getting there.

The 46-year-old was believed to have chosen to marry on one of the Greek islands as it is one of her favourite holiday destinations, and no doubt she and David will be keen to resume their wedding plans as soon as they can.
