At the time, a source told The Sun: "They’ve been through a lot together and they’re both still so young.

"It’s a shame they couldn’t make the relationship work but they’ve gone their separate ways.

"They’re both now just trying to move on but they absolutely adore their daughter."

Alex has been playing Simon on Corrie since 2008 and in those 12 years he has faced some troubled times.

His mum died when he was only little and he then moved in with alcoholic father Peter Barlow and his then-wife Leanne.

Their marriage broke down and Peter moved on with Carla Connor. His dad was wrongly imprisoned for the death of Tina McIntyre.

Simon went through a phase of physically abusing Leanne and she eventually reported him to police.

He then got involved with a gang, but appears to have turned a corner now.
