Fans of the pair were quick to share messages of congratulations, with Andy Whyment, who plays Kirk in Coronation Street, posting three red hearts.

Kimberly Hart-Simpson, who starred as Nicky Wheatley, shared: “Oh my LORD Yess! Happy ever after.”

And Waterloo Road actress Rebecca Ryan penned: “Congratulations!! So so happy for you both!! You look incredible Sally.”

It comes after the couple revealed they were engaged in March 2020.

Sally and Joe were pictured in August 2018 holding hands with The Sun confirming that they hit it off while filming Coronation Street in Manchester before going on a string of secret dates.

They had told colleagues about their budding relationship and were snapped holding hands at the soap’s summer party in the city’s Victoria Warehouse.
