CORONATION Street star Brooke Vincent loves her sunny holidays, but she will have to get used to colder climes as her boyfriend has signed with Latics.

Brooke has been dating Josh McEachran for two-and-a-half years and she is thrilled he has been taken on loan from Chelsea, as it means he will be closer to her Manchester home.

Speaking of the previous long distance, she said: “It is hard but then again it’s all I’ve ever known. He’s been on loan to different places so it just depends where he is.”

And talking of her love for Josh, the 21-year-old said: “We click, he just gets me.

“I’m dead loud and he’s so much quieter and more reserved.

“I said to him the other day: ‘I bet when I came into your life, it was like a whirlwind.’

“He said: ‘Yeah and you haven’t stopped talking for two and a half years.’”

Meanwhile, DW Stadium stable-mates Wigan Warriors moved to sign Jordan James, the prop who progressed through dating show Take Me Out without a single rejection from the female contestants.

Not that he will expect any teasing from his new team-mates - the 33-year-old is a former Royal Marine Commando.
