Coro stars expecting baby girl

Coronation Street star Alan Halsall and his wife and former co-star Lucy-Jo Hudson are expecting a baby girl. Alan, who plays Tyrone Dobbs, and Lucy-Jo, who played Katy Harris until 2005, announced to Hello! magazine that they are having a daughter.

Although Lucy-Jo says she “always wanted a baby girl”, Alan indicated he was hoping for a boy. “The baby would have been named after a Manchester United player if he was a boy,” he told the magazine.

The pair, who married in 2009 after falling in love while working together on the show, revealed that they paid a special visit to see Liz Dawn, Alan’s former co-star who played Vera Duckworth, to share their news.

They also visited the widow of Bill Tarmey, who played Alan’s on-screen father-figure Jack Duckworth. Bill passed away last year.
