Real life Emmerdale couple Laura Norton and Mark Jordon have been enjoying the sights of New York on a fun-filled holiday for two.
The smitten duo have been posting a whole slew of snaps to social media keeping fans updated with all of their exciting travels in the Big Apple while taking a break from the ITV soap’s set.
As well as posing for the standard tourist snap at the top of the Empire State Building with the city spread out behind them, the couple have been sightseeing all across town.
They stopped at a Red Lobster restaurant, walked the High Line, popped across the bridge to Brooklyn, toured around Central Park and even bumped into civil rights activist Jesse Jackson – as you do!
It seems like they’ve had an amazing time but, all good things must come to an end, and Mark told one Twitter follower on Monday the pair were about to head home.
Co-star Michelle Hardwick commented on the couple’s holiday snaps that they looked “stunning”, prompting Mark to reply: “Tales once home.”
Mark returned to Emmerdale as Daz Spencer in August, reuniting him on set with real-life girlfriend Laura, best known as Kerry Wyatt.
He told Digital Spy recently: “Working with Laura is great because she’s my best mate, and more to the point, she’s my girlfriend!
“It’s a real privilege. I feel pretty lucky.”
Mark is never afraid to shout about his love for Laura from the rooftops.
Back in July, he gushed on Twitter: “Without doubt the luckiest man alive. [Laura is] the most beautiful woman inside and out.
“I’m screaming to the heavens “THANK YOU “!”
Laura repaid the compliment by replying: “I’m the lucky one.”
Mark and Laura reportedly began dating after initially striking up a friendship during Mark’s first stint on Emmerdale in 2014.
They celebrated their two-year anniversary earlier this year.
Mark told Metro.co.uk recently that he was “overjoyed” to be back in the Dales.
“I had a wonderful time when I was here before, coming into the building was incredible,” he said.
“I had 17 years working with a lot of the faces here at Heartbeat and the welcome from the cast was just fantastic.
“There’d been conversations, a few clues and offers of the possibility so I’ve spent many months with my fingers crossed saying ‘please god let this happen’, and it did.”
Glad to have you back!
