Daniel and Rob went public with their romance in May but split just months later in July
CORONATION Street's Daniel Brocklebank has declared his 'love' for new boyfriend , Stuart Hatton Jr.
Having split with co-star Rob Mallard over the summer, the actor, 37, appears to be getting serious with his new man – proudly sharing his feelings for the Mr Gay World winner.
Taking to Twitter over the weekend, a smitten Daniel – who plays Billy Mayhew – seemed to heavily hint his romance with Stuart was moving forward.
He wrote: "The best love story is when you fall in love at the most unexpected time with the most unexpected person."
It followed on from Stuart's own declaration that his boyfriend was a "keeper".
The model and radio presenter shared a cheeky insight into his relationship with the Corrie star the day before.
Sharing a snap of the pair cosying up to each other, Stuart cheekily quipped: "Not only is @Dan_Brocklebank awesome but when I fart he stands and applauds then records it as a ring tone #Keeper."
Daniel seemed to have enjoyed his evening out with his boyfriend too as he shared a the same snap on his instagram, captioning it: "A lovely night with me lad."
The star has been regularly posting snaps of himself and Stuart looking loved-up to his Instagram account since the tail-end of the summer.
Prior to meeting Stuart Daniel had been dating his Corrie co-star Rob for the best part of a year – having met on set when Rob joined the soap.
However, just months after they went public with their romance The Sun exclusively revealed the soap stars had split.
A source told Bizarre TV: “It was a lot of pressure for both of them to be working on the same show and going out—in the end something had to give.
“They decided to part ways a couple of weeks ago but they’re still great friends and hope to remain that way.”
