Alison King of Coronation Street has split from her fiancé David Stuckey after their wedding was postponed due to the lockdown. Alison King, who was engaged to David Stuckey, has broken up with him.
Since March 2018, the 49-year-old has been dating IT consultant David, 40, who plays Carla Connor in the ITV serial.
In 2019, they announced their engagement and planned to marry in Greece in May 2020.
However, after lockdown limitations made the wedding a logistical nightmare, they were forced to postpone their marriage with just weeks to go.
According to insiders, the pair has ended their engagement quietly.
“Alison and David have unfortunately chosen to divorce,” one source added. They were deeply in love for a long period but eventually drifted apart.
“They parted on good terms and wished each other well in the future.”
Alison and David met when their mutual personal trainer introduced them.
In a magazine interview to announce their engagement in 2019, the actress disclosed that he proposed on their one-year anniversary during a sunset cruise.
Alison also said that she gave David a Rolex watch as an engagement gift, as her character Carla married for the fifth time on screen last year.
“I knew he was going to ask the question because he kept placing something on my finger and said, ‘Right, close your eyes and forget this ever happened,'” she explained.
“I find wedding stuff a little like work because I’ve been married so many times at work,” she continued, “but this is real and thrilling.” “All I want is for it to be very peaceful.”
“It’s obviously incredibly terrible for them both,” the insider continued, “but they knew they couldn’t go on together.”
“They both knew it wasn’t right.”
Alison joins the long-running soap in 2006, after appearing in the Sky One series Dream Team.
She was romantically linked to Philip Middlemiss, who played Des Barnes, Dream team co-star on Coronation Street.
She also had a connection with Adam Huckett, the sound technician on Corrie.
Last night, a representative for the show declined to comment.
