Coronation Street's real life couple Joe Duttine and Sally Carmen walk their dog near soap set

Coronation Street's real life couple Joe Duttine and Sally Carmen were snapped in casual outfits as they walked their dog near the soap's set.

The actors – who play Abi Franklin and Tim Metcalfe in the ITV soap – looked in high spirits as they laughed and chatted together.

Joe, 50, opted for denim shorts, a grey jacket and a sun-cap, while Sally, 39, wore a loose grey hoody and flared denim jeans.

With both Joe and Abi also wearing white trainers, not only did their loved-up body language match, but their outfits did too.

The couple's black cockerpoo puppy wandered between their feet as they walked away from the soap's set in Manchester, where the couple also live.

And it's no wonder that the pair looked happy in each other's company as just five months ago the couple announced that they were engaged.

The engagement came about despite their characters rarely appearing onscreen together.

Back in March, the actors took to Instagram to reveal the happy news with a picture of Sally's beautiful ring and two glasses of celebratory champagne.

Since the pair were first pictured together holding hands together in 2018, the lovebirds relationship has gone from strength to strength.

The Sun confirmed that they hit it off while filming for the show and had been enjoying a string of secret dates together.

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

A telly source explained: “Both Joe and Sally had been single for a while and just met at the right time in their lives.

“Sally thinks Joe is a funny and caring guy and he’s really fallen for her, too. They’ve now told their castmates and everyone thinks it’s a match made in heaven.”

Meanwhile in the soap, things are going just as well for Joe's character Tim, who is happily married to Sally Webster (Sally Dynevor).

Things also don't seem to be too bad for Abi's love life, as she just moved in Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) – Sally's ex husband.
