Alan and Tisha’s relationship history
The actor has a daughter, Sienna, with ex-wife Lucy-Jo Hudson, and she recently welcomed a baby with her new partner.
Meanwhile, Alan and Tisha finally confirmed their relationship last year after months of hiding it.
Alan and Tisha confirmed their romance at Corrie co-star Sam Aston’s wedding in 2019.
The couple met on the set of the ITV soap in 2013, when Tisha joined the cast as Steph Britton.
She left the show in 2017 but made a brief return in 2018 as Steph attended the funeral of her brother, Luke.
The relationship was the first for Alan following his divorce from Lucy-Jo, who also appeared in Corrie from 2002 until 2005.
The former couple split in 2018 and confirmed they were getting a divorce, but revealed they were remaining friends and devoted parents to their daughter.
Since splitting from Alan, Lucy-Jo has also moved on with boyfriend Lewis Devine.
