CORRIE fans were in their element when it was revealed two of the show's stars were dating in real life.
But sadly it wasn't meant to be for Nicola Thorp and Charlie de Melo.
When did Nicola Thorp and Charlie de Melo date?
Nicola and Charlie started dating around March 2018.
The hunky actor plays suave solicitor Imran Habeeb on Corrie, while she plays Nicola Rubinstein.
The pair were close friends for a decade before they became romantically involved.
Their relationship blossomed while they were both filming the ITV soap and they showed off their many holidays on Instagram.
Why did Nicola and Charlie split up?
In January 2019, The Sun exclusively revealed how the couple had split.
They date for around 10 months before calling it quits.
Their relationship hit the skids just before Christmas 2018, and so they decided to go their separate ways.
A telly source told The Sun at the time: "Sadly Nicola and Charlie decided to cool things after growing apart."
Nicola's brief departure from the soap in 2018 reportedly put a strain on their romance, even though she's returned to the cobbles just a few months later.
The source added: "They've decided to remain pals – although they aren't hanging out as much platonically as they they did before they were a couple and have been tending to go to separate.
"As long as it doesn't get awkward at work they're happy, that's their main concern, they also won't be flaunting any new partners in front of each other, they plan to be very professional."
In Autumn 2018 Nicola told The Sun how she was jealous when Charlie's character was offered a threesome in the soap by sisters Leanne and Toyah Battersby.
She said at the time: "Let's just say I get very, very jealous of Charlie because Georgia [Taylor, who plays Toyah] and Jane [Danson, who plays Leanne] and are absolutely gorgeous. He's a lucky man."
Who are Nicola and Charlie dating now?
As of June 2021 Nicola is believed to be currently single.
Charlie is not known to be in a relationship right now.
