Where is Coronation Street’s Ellie Leach from and what else do we know about the Faye Windass star?
Coronation Street stars will know Ellie Leach for playing Faye Windass in the soap since 2011.
She was first introduced as a potential adoptive child for Anna and Eddie Windass and has been part of some big storylines in the past, including falling pregnant at the age of 12 and keeping it secret from her family.
But who is Ellie Leach and what else has she been in? Here’s what we know…
Ellie is 21-years-old and was born on 15 March 2001.
She was born in Bury, Greater Manchester and went to Fairfield High School for Girls.
As well as having a younger sister called Daisy, Ellie is a cousin of Brooke Vincent, who plays Sophie Webster in Coronation Street.
Ellie started her career by starring in adverts for Staples and McDonald's.
In 2009, she also appeared in the film A Boy Called Dad, before starring in an episode of Moving On as Stacy.
Away from the Cobbles Ellie is happily loved up with her boyfriend Reagan Pettman.
The couple got together in July 2018 and often share cute photos of one another on social media.
Reagan is an actor, model, influencer and dancer, with Ellie sharing a sweet Instagram post about her boyfriend last year.
She said last year: "happy birthday to you, I love you more than you could ever imagine, you are so special to me and I’m so lucky that you are mine."
