Corrie real-life couple Sally Carman and Joe Duttine hit relationship milestone

Coronation Street stars Sally Carman and Joe Duttine have shared a relationship milestone with their fans.

The actors — who play Abi Franklin and Tim Metcalfe, respectively, on the ITV soap — have officially been a couple for five years.

Sally shared the news on her Instagram, posting a photo of her and Joe with five yellow heart emojis in the caption, referencing the length of their relationship.

The couple tied the knot last July, before jetting off to Italy for a romantic honeymoon and returning to a dressing room packed to the gills with gifts from their co-stars.

Despite their enduring relationship, Sally has joked that Joe isn't fun to work with.

"I hate working with [Joe]," she said. "He's a rotten man to work with because he makes me laugh to the point where I get that sweaty feeling because I can't get a grip.

"It's painful. I'll have gritted teeth and go: 'Stop it!' And he'll say: 'I'm not doing anything'. If I never have a scene with him again, I'll be all right with that."

Despite the ordeal of having her husband making her laugh too much on set, Sally loves her work-life balance.

"Before Corrie, my life was about the next job. Now, I'm at an age where I've pretty much done everything I want to do, and this is a job where I get to do different storylines and hang out with good friends at work," she said.

"Then I come home to my nice house and my family."

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
