This comes after the actress - who also starred in Hollyoaks last year - split from fellow Corrie star Alan, 37, who plays Tryone Dobbs, in 2018.

The pair met on the set of the soap in 2002 and went on to strike up a romance two years later.

After marrying in 2009, they went on to have their daughter in 2013, split in 2016 but then got back together just months later.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be and they split once again in 2018.

While Lucy-Jo met current boyfriend Lewis in panto, Alan is now dating another Corrie star, Tisha Merry.

And the couple just celebrated Alan’s birthday by taking his daughter Sienna on holiday.

Finding it hard being parted from her little girl, Lucy-Jo recently penned on Instagram: "My last day with Sienna before she goes on holiday with her daddy.

"What a gorgeous day we’ve had @lewisdevine so thankful to have these two in my life ... gonna miss you so much baby girl.... it never gets any easier.

"But I know you’ll have an amazing time! I’m already counting down the hours."
