Sally revealed on July 15 she and Joe, who plays Tim Metcalfe in Corrie, had tied the knot.

She shared a photo of herself and Joe kissing in a circle of balloons on her Instagram, captioning the snap: “We did.”

Sally looked stunning in a flowing, pale-blue gown, while Joe wore a matching suit and trademark flat cap.

Their co-stars congratulated them on their wedding.

Tanisha Gorey, who plays Asha Alahan, wrote: “Brb just crying! You are the most gorgeous bride!”

Maria Connor actress Samia Longchambon added: “Omg look at you two! Congrats you gorgeous humans.”

Summer Spellman actress Harriet Bibby commented: “Congratulations!”

It came as quite the surprise to fans after Sally had initially revealed they were planning a winter wedding.

Originally their big day had been booked for December 2021, but after the pandemic hit, they decided to wait until all restrictions were taken away so they could throw a huge party.

But Sally had still teased the wedding would take place at Christmas, which is her favourite time of year.

Honeymoon fun

Sally kept fans updated following the big day with snaps from her and Joe’s honeymoon.

During their time in Italy, they met up with another Coronation Street real-life couple Lee Boardman and Jennifer James, who played Jez Quigley and Geena Gregory in the soap.

After months of living apart, Abi is finally set to return home to husband Kevin Webster tonight.

She has been living with son Alfie under the care of Wendy Papadopolous while the courts assess whether she’s really ready to care for her son after her drug addiction and the circumstances under which he was born.

But Wendy has said she’s ready to go home.

Meanwhile, the pressure of her return has been getting to Kev.

Tonight (Friday July 29) the police turn up at his door, but what news do they have?

Is Abi’s homecoming about to be ruined by her husband’s violent mistake?
