    Also, Pat Phoenix (Elsie Tanner) met Alan Browning (Alan Howard) on the Corrie cobbles.

    Emmerdale has lots of real-life couples. I even wonder who will get together next.

    David & Debbie
    Brenda & Eric
    Cain & Rhona
    Victoria & Ross (although, they just broke up)
    Daz & Kerry
    Paddy & Sandra

    And....
    Vanessa & the shows producer Kate Brooks.

    Stephanie Davis (Sinead) and Owen Warner (Romeo) from Hollyoaks are currently dating.

    From Corrie, Billy the vicar and Daniel Osbourne were a couple for a while. Also, Sarah Platt & Jason Grimshaw.

    Going way, way back to the original Crossroads, onscreen couple David & Barbara Hunter (Ronald Allen & Sue Lloyd) were married after meeting on the show.

    In Emmerdale, Claire King (Kim Tate) was married to her onscreen stepson Peter Amory (Chris Tate). While their marriage was on the rocks, he had an affair with co-star Samantha Giles (Bernice).

    From EastEnders, Laura Beale & Gary Hobbs were married in real life for a while.

    Current Corrie stars Joe Duttine (Tim Metcalfe) and Sally Carman (Abi Franklin) are reportedly a couple in real life too.

    They're not from Corrie.


    If you read the post you quoted, you would see that Emelee had said...

    Where they were from
    And who they are

    Ronald Allen (David Hunter) and Sue Lloyd (Barbara Brady, later Barbara Hunter) met on Crossroads and fact imitated fiction when their characters married and the actors married in real life.

    Rory Douglas-Speed is also in a relationship with co-star Nadine Mulkerrin. Their characters were involved onscreen when his character quit the priesthood for her character, before going back. Anna Passey got involved with co-star Nick Rhys.
