Stephanie Davis’ boyfriend has shared a lovely message after news broke that the former Hollyoaks actress has joined Coronation Street.
It was confirmed on Tuesday (May 16) that Stephanie, best known for playing Sinead O’Connor on Hollyoaks, will make her cobbles debut later this year, as part of an upcoming summer storyline.
Joe Mckalroy, who is in a relationship with the soap star, shared his joy for her in a touching Instagram post, complete with a first look of Steph on the set of the ITV soap.
‘Sooo proud of you @stephaniedavis88 on your new journey,’ he wrote on social media. ‘You’ve worked soo hard and you deserve the world and more love you more than you’ll ever know.’
The accompanying photo saw Steph pose outside the Rovers Return on the iconic set of the show, ahead of her exciting new journey.
We’re excited already.
Stephanie, meanwhile, shared her glee at joining such an iconic show, posting the same picture to her own instagram account with the caption: ‘I am absolutely delighted to be joining the cast of Coronation Street, playing the part of Courtney Vance.
‘Growing up I have always watched and loved the show, so to be part of the biggest TV soap in Britain, which is in the hearts and homes of so many people, is an honour.’
Courtney Vance, Stephanie’s character, will arrive on the cobbles in the coming months and will embark on an affair with Aadi (Adam Hussain), behind her partner Darren’s (Ryan Early) back.
Ryan’s character is a business associate of Dev’s (Jimmi Harkishin) and while they spend time talking business, Courtney will set her sights on Aadi.
Stephanie and Ryan will begin filming this week, making their first appearance in July.
Coronation Street bird Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
