Moving on: Coronation Street’s Georgia Taylor has reportedly become ‘close’ to former co-star Charlie De Melo after she allegedly split from her partner of 14 years, Mark Letheren (Mark and Georgia pictured together).
Charlie and Georgia’s bond comes about as the publication reports that Georgia and Mark secretly split last year and both “moved out of the house together.”
Mark reportedly recently wrote on Facebook: “It’s been the worst year in a string of increasingly shitty years. My life finally collapsed.
“Fortunately, I am incredibly fortunate to have a family who picked up the broken pieces and are trying to help me rebuild.
“It is thanks to them that I am still here and trying to move forward. I’m really thankful for that. Whatever the new year brings, I hope that strength, humility, joy and love abound for you all.’

“It’s been the worst year in a string of increasingly crappy years”: In an Instagram post two weeks ago, Mark hinted at the reported breakup and the turmoil in his personal life in a candid update
Charlie hasn’t been linked to anyone since splitting from his former partner, Corrie alumni Nicola Thorp, in 2019 after a 10-month romance.
MailOnline has reached out to representatives from Georgia and Charlie for comment.
On Friday, it was reported that Georgia and Charlie looked cozy as they took a stroll together before stopping for a coffee.
The duo have remained close since Charlie’s character, attorney Imran, was killed by the soap opera last year – in an accident caused by Georgia’s character Toyah.

Discussing Charlie’s decision to leave Coronation Street, Georgia said at the time she was: “Heartbroken. I absolutely adore him.’
She continued, “He was a dream, an absolute dream. He’s so funny so we laugh a lot but he’s honestly one of the most supportive people I’ve ever worked with and even now, we’re obviously still in touch, he texts me: “Like was the day? Are you all right? “
“He’s just a team player. And I mean look at him, no complaints there either. He is gorgeous.’
Earlier this week it was reported that Georgia had split from her long-term partner Mark, with a source telling The Sun: “The split was in July 2022 and they both moved out of the home together.”

The couple, who have been together since 2008, lived together in Bristol.
Georgia hasn’t posted anything about Mark on Instagram since March 2020.
They celebrated 10 years together in Lisbon in 2018, with Georgia calling Mark “my love”.
Georgia previously spoke about how she first met Mark on the set of BBC’s Casualty in 2008 and said at the time that they weren’t married. She played Ruth Winters on the show, while Mark starred in the drama as Ben Harding.

He is also known for shows like The Bill and Wire in the Blood.
“Yeah, we’re not actually married, but we practically are because we’ve been together for so long,” she said.
“We met, he was kind of a halftime figure, he ironically played a city councilman, which Toyah ended up doing. We met 13 years ago. So yeah I got him out of the job and a lot of friends and it’s been a really good time,” she told Lorraine.
A representative for ITV’s Coronation Street declined to comment.
