Coronation Street stalwart Alison King is reportedly engaged to her long-term partner.
The actress, who has been playing soap fave Carla Connor on and off since 2006, apparently said yes to her mystery man last month.
“Ali is so popular with everyone on the cobbles. They think it’s wonderful,” a source told the paper.
“The engagement is a lovely surprise. Ali is over the moon.”
Her new man remains unnamed as Alison appears to be deliberately keeping her personal life firmly under wraps.
“Ali has obviously endured heartache in the past. But she is hoping those days are now firmly behind her,” the source added. “She is very excited about what the future holds.”
