Coronation Street actor Alan Halsall has revealed the pressure he’s under to get engaged to new girlfriend Tisha Merry, despite his divorce last year.

The Tyrone Dobbs actor, 37, went public with Tisha, 27, earlier this year, and the pair have been inseparable ever since.

Alan, who has six-year-old daughter Sienna-Rae from his previous marriage, insisted that he wants to take things slowly with Tisha, following his split from Corrie co-star Lucy-Jo Hudson after 10 years of marriage last year.

He told the Mirror: “The pressure is there from day one but we’ve not been together that long, so I think we’ll just enjoy ourselves for now.”

Alan added of the Steph Britton actress: “It’s great, she’s a wonderful girl and I’m really happy.”

The confession comes after Alan and Tisha moved in together, with the soap star moving his gorgeous girlfriend into his £750,000 house.

According to The Sun, Tisha has now moved in and is living full-time with Alan at the stunning property near Manchester.

A source revealed: “Tisha is keeping her place on for now but she’s living at Alan’s place full time.

“She has been so good for him and really made him smile again. They are very similar and love to work out together so they have lots of the same interests and Sienna adores her.”


Alan regularly shares photos of the house online and is said to have overseen “every aspect” of building the property, including design and securing planning permission, with Lucy-Jo before their marriage came to an end.

Alan and Tisha’s happy news comes after his ex Lucy-Jo also announced some exciting news of her own, revealing she’s pregnant with her second child, her first child with new boyfriend Lewis Devine.

The actress announced she was expecting a baby on Instagram, where she also revealed how she told her and Alan’s daughter.

She wrote: “This has been so hard to keep quiet but today was the day @lewisdevine and I got to tell Sienna the best news!!!

“We are 13 weeks pregnant and so very excited to extend our little family….

“Sienna is so excited to be a big sister…. and Lew is ecstatic to become a daddy for the first time and I am so happy to be having another gorgeous baby! No other feeling like it.”

Lucy and fellow Coronation Street actor Alan had met on the ITV soap back in 2002 and tied the knot in June 2009.

Their daughter was born in September 2013. The former couple announced their split last year, with Lucy saying: "I can confirm Al and I are in the process of divorcing. We remain friends and devoted Mummy and Daddy to our daughter Sienna."

Meanwhile, Alan and Tisha confirmed their relationship earlier this year. Fans of the actor speculated that he was dating the Steph Britton star Tisha after the pair posed for a cosy snap together at AJ Bell Stadium earlier this year.

The pair later confirmed they were together as they celebrated co-star Sam Aston’s wedding to Briony Gardner in Cheshire.
