Alan Halsall and Tisha Merry’s romance

Alan and Tisha went public with their romance at Corrie co-star Sam Aston’s wedding last year.

The pair first met on the set of the ITV soap in 2013 when Tisha joined the cast as Steph Britton.

The relationship was the first for Alan following his divorce from Lucy-Jo, who also appeared in Corrie from 2002 until 2005.

Tisha, 27, recently opened up on their romance in YouTube Q+A video, telling fans the couple are ready to settle down and have kids.

One follower asked: “You see yourself marrying Al and having children in the next two years.”

Tisha was shocked and responded saying: “Two! No, definitely not two years. I do see myself getting married, maybe, who knows, I’d love to get married. And I do see myself having children with Alan but not for at least like five years.”
