Sleeping Beauty Catherine, who plays feisty Eva Price in Coronation Street, stars alongside Shayne, who plays her Prince Charming and factory boss Aidan Connor.
"Eva might finally have met her Prince Charming," said Catherine Tyldesley
"He's great fun to work with and makes me laugh so much," Catherine told HELLO!. "We feel comfortable with each other, which makes our job easier."
Speaking about their characters' romance, the soap star added: "Eva and Aidan are a great match. They have a lot in common and seem to have clicked straight away. Eva might finally have met her Prince Charming. It's like Aidan has always been there. He fits right in."
On the prospect of another Corrie wedding, Catherine, who is set to marry her fiancé Tom Pitfield this year, said: "It would be the most outrageous big fat gypsy wedding the street has ever seen. Eva is a romantic and Aidan is everything she has ever wanted in a boyfriend."
Catherine will be walking down the aisle soon when she ties the knot to her personal trainer love. And much as she enjoyed dressing up for the fairytale-themed photoshoot, the bride-to-be has one special gown on her mind, her wedding dress.
"It's my dream dress," said Catherine. "It's elegant, classy and feminine – everything I wanted it to be and more. I can't wait to wear it. I hope Tom loves it as much as I do."
