COUPLE WOBBLE Corrie star Alan Halsall splits from co-star girlfriend Tisha Merry after ‘pressure to make it work got on top of them’

CORONATION Street actor Alan Halsall has split from his Cobbles co-star Tisha Merry after five years.

The pair, who met on the set of the ITV soap, broke up at the start of the year.

Alan, 41, has played mechanic Tyrone Dobbs for 26 years while Tisha, 30, spent five years appearing as waitress Steph Britton.

An insider said yesterday: “Alan and Tisha had a lot of love for each other and had really similar interests, enjoying socialising and going on holiday together.

“But they started to drift apart and feel the pressure of making their relationship work get on top of them. They realised they weren’t on the same page and splitting up felt like the best option.

“They’ve been focusing on themselves and surrounding themselves with their own friends.

Cryptic message

“Tisha moved out of Alan’s home around a month ago and is throwing herself into work.”

Alan was forced to pull out of I’m A Celebrity late last year and take time off from Corrie after a major knee operation.

He is thought to have injured himself while exercising and had reconstructive anterior cruciate ligament surgery in November.

Alan has daughter Sienna, aged ten, with his ex-wife — the former Corrie and Hollyoaks actress Lucy-Jo Hudson, 40.

Tisha, who has removed all photos of Alan from her Instagram account, was last year cast in BBC medical soap Doctors.

On Valentine’s Day, Alan shared a snap of his daughter, calling her “My Valentine’s”, while Tisha posted a cryptic message about “fears and insecurities”.

They were yoga buddies before starting to date after Tisha had left Corrie in 2019.

She moved into Alan’s home in Worsley, Greater Manchester, soon after.

In 2020, she told OK Magazine: “It’s nice we built a strong foundation before anything romantic.”

The Sun on Sunday has asked Alan and Tisha’s representatives for a comment.
