Faye quit Corrie to concentrate on her wedding to Gareth.

The couple had a seven-year on/off relationship before getting engaged in January and it was recently claimed they had tried their best to "make it work" between them but ultimately decided just to be friends.

Now Faye has been pictured with many of her former Corrie colleagues having a ball at the annual LGBT celebration in Manchester's city centre.

The soap's official Instagram feed captioned the three images featuring various stars with:

"We're feeling the love at Manchester Pride 2019! #ITVPride #onelove #equality#deepspacepride #Corrie."

Earlier this month, friend and ex-Corrie colleague Kym Marsh said she thinks it's better the pair made a "brave" decision to call off their wedding rather than end things further down the line.

Writing in her column for OK! magazine, she said: "I sent Faye a text to let her know I'm thinking of her and I said I hoped she was doing OK.

"As sad as it is, it's better to split before walking down the aisle with someone than marrying someone knowing it's not the right thing to do.

"Sometimes the bravest and best thing you can do is walk away from the relationship."
