Meanwhile, there has certainly been baby boom in Coronation Street, with Jenni McAlpine (Fiz Brown) and Paula Lane (Kylie Platt) currently on maternity leave and Samia Ghadie (Maria Sutherland) is also pregnant.

Catherine told OK!: “From when we were all pregnant, we were always texting each other and sharing tips. I can’t believe how similar all our names are: Alfie, Albert and Artie. It’s true that the boy band is complete.

“And now Samia is pregnant too - it’s like a massive Corrie baby boom. We’re going to have a yummy mummies club.”

The couple are also good friends with fellow Corrie star Alan Halsall (Tyrone Dobbs) and his wife, Lucy-Jo Hudson, who is ambassador of Wigan charity Joining Jack.

Lucy-Jo added: “Cath doesn’t live far from us. When she was overdue she was texting us, asking what to do.”

Catherine and Tom also discussed impending wedding plans, as Tom said: “It has actually, now the last week or so, made me think about it more.

Catherine added: “I can’t wait to get married. We will probably start in the summer. Hopefully it will happen at some point next year.”
