Spare a thought for Coronation Street actress Katie McGlynn; while we are tackling icy temperatures and snow-blocked roads, she’s enduring an idyllic holiday!
The soap beauty has been delighting fans on social media with a succession of shots from her break in Thailand.
And it seems the ITV star is loved-up and proud to announce it to the world!
Katie headed off for sunnier climes almost a week ago, admitting she had toyed with the idea of spending Christmas abroad for some time.
But as she posed on the beach of Phi Phi Islands, Katie was showing no signs of regret to be missing out on the wind and rain of home!
Perhaps the company she’s keeping is making her especially happy – Katie is accompanied by a young man going by the name of Benji.
He first appeared in the Corrie star’s Instagram over the summer, and has been snapped multiple times with Katie’s beloved bessie, Lee – so we can assume she has already made up her mind to keep him for a while!
Young love, bless!
Katie’s had a pretty hectic time filming over the cobbles over the past 12 months.
Her character Sinead has been caught up in a love triangle between long-term love Chesney and Daniel.
She and Ches are now engaged after reuniting following a relationship with Ken Barlow’s son, which resulted in pregnancy and an abortion to poor knicker stitcher felt pressured into.
While claiming her feelings for Daniel are done and dusted, the lingering looks the former lovers share suggest otherwise…
