Coronation Street actors Daniel Brocklebank and Rob Mallard have confirmed they are in a relationship.

The soap stars responded to speculation that they were an item by sharing the news with their fans on their Twitter accounts.

Daniel, who plays Billy Mayhew in the ITV soap, wrote on Twitter: “It’s true! @Rob_Mallard only came round to put some shelves up & it went from there… #LoveIsInTheAir.”


Rob, who plays Ken Barlow’s (Bill Roache) youngest son Daniel Osbourne, wrote his own message, adding: “Thanks for all of the kind comments! I have indeed bagged the ‘notorious’ @Dan_Brocklebank (batteries not included).”

Keeping it light-hearted, Daniel later shared a discussion he had had with his mother about his new romance.

He wrote: “Mum: You’re seeing someone!

“Me: I am.

“Mum: I’m thrilled! It was costing me a fortune pretending to be you on all those dating sites …”
