Former Coronation Street star Lucy-Jo Hudson has reportedly found romance with fellow actor Lewis Devine, who is also pals with her ex-husband Alan Halsall.
The pair met when they starred together in pantomime in 2017 but friends close to the actress claimed that although they shared an instant chemistry nothing became serious until she called time on her marriage to Alan.
Lucy-Jo, 35, met Lewis when they starred together in Snow White And The Seven Dwarves; Hudson played the titular princess while Devine played her best friend Muddles.
And although they didnt act on their romance until Lucy-Jo was single, it is thought that Alan is gutted and feels like a bit of a mug.
They went public to their friends with their romance a few weeks ago and attended a wedding of one of Lewiss relations together, but the news has been hard for Alan to take, a source close to the actress has alleged.
Pictures of the wedding have been shared on Facebook and show Lucy-Jo and Lewis cuddled up together, with her arm placed on his knee.
He became mates with Lewis during the panto run, and they often hung out as a trio., the insider told The Sun.
They used to muck around backstage together, and at one point Lewis even changed his Facebook profile picture to one of the three of them and the couples daughter Sienna.
So Alan feels like a bit of a mug. He is gutted.
Alan, who plays Tyrone Dobbs on the ITV soap, was said to have told friends he was having a mid-life crisis following the split from the fellow actor.
The couple met on set in 2002 – when Lucy played Katy Harris from 2002-05 – and now share four-year-old daughter Sienna-Rae, after they married in 2009; Lucy-Jo now stars on Channel 4 drama Hollyoaks.
They split in 2016 but later reunited, however in May they confirmed they had split again, with pals claiming that theyre devastated the marriage is over but have vowed to stay friends.
