Coronation Street actor Alan Halsall and his former co-star Tisha Merry have been sharing photos of their exotic winter break to Instagram. The couple, who have been dating for almost a year, confirmed their relationship in May 2019 and they're clearly as loved-up as ever, as the pictures from their holiday in the Dominican Republic prove. Tisha posted a picture of herself in a gorgeous white bikini and matching cover-up on a beach swing, which she captioned: "The world is a playground, and life is pushing my swing."

The couple revealed they were dating last May 

The glamorous actress had previously shared a series of snaps of herself by the pool, holding what looked like an iced fruit drink, wearing a skimpy black bikini and smiling, on which Alan commented: "Stunning." The 37-year-old, who has played Tyrone Dobbs on the soap since 1998, also posted photos of himself enjoying his time abroad, including one where he was surrounded by palm trees.

It hasn't been only sun, sea, and tropical drinks for the pair, though – Tisha, 27, who played Steph Britton from 2013 to 2017, has also been sharing her holiday reads in her Stories, which have ranged from Riders by Jilly Cooper to Outsider by Stephen King.

Tisha has posted several behind-the-scenes snaps from her break with boyfriend Alan
