Alongside the snap, she wrote, “Thank you to the lovely couple in the park who took this picture for us: Taken as I was in early labour on my due date.”

The mum opened up about her baby boy, “He’s changed our lives for the better in every way. I feel like I’ve known him my whole life.”

We couldn’t be happier for the Coronation Street star and Ben. Little Franklin is certainly the best early Christmas present they ever could have asked for.


Coronation Street star Mikey North and his wife Rachael have confirmed the birth of their second child. The couple revealed they welcomed a baby girl in September and they chose the most perfect name for their little one.

The actor opened up about his newborn daughter in an interview with OK! Magazine.

Mikey revealed that their daughter was born in September.

The doting parents decided to call her Eliza. The name Eliza, short for Elizabeth, is of Hebrew origin, but is extremely popular due to the royals. 

The name means God is my oath.

Speaking about Eliza’s birth, Rachael admitted that it didn’t go as expected. The mum was 16 days overdue so she had to be induced.

The mum shared, “It was so bizarre going into hospital knowing I was going to have a baby as opposed to going into labour naturally. It was like having a casual appointment and then leaving with a baby!”

Mikey joked that it was the longest 16 days of his life.

The dad-of-two admitted, “I’m the worst birthing partner in the world. I was just nervously pacing around the whole time and Rach shouted at me to sit down.”

“Hats off to any woman that gives birth. I’m just thankful I don’t have to do it!” he quipped.

Mikey and Rachael are also parents to two-year-old Archie.


Your body goes through some of the most overwhelming changes during and after pregnancy. It can be extremely daunting, especially for new mums like Brooke Vincent, who are experiencing these changes for the first time.

The Coronation Street star welcomed her first child, a boy named Mexx, last month. In a powerful open letter, the actress admitted that she felt ashamed for not being able to pick up where she left off.

She explained that she was supposed to get dressed up for the evening but struggled to find something that made her feel beautiful.

“Tonight I was supposed to look completely different, I was supposed to be dressed up, hair and make up done. ready to eat some nice food and maybe have my first cocktail in 11 months with Kean, our first time away from Mexx for an hour or two, instead I look like this,” she wrote alongside a photo of her in her pyjamas.

Brooke continued, “I look like this because I naively thought that 4 weeks after my baby I would be in all my old clothes looking exactly like I did before I got pregnant. I thought my jeans would instantly fit and I would just be my “old self” only with my new beautiful baby. 

“How wrong I was, I tried 23 outfits on at least, nothing looked right, nothing looked like me and I felt like I was looking at a completely different person, I suppose to a certain extent I now am, I am Mexx’s mum,” Brooke reflected.

The soap star said she sobbed after trying on the bundle of different outfits.

“I sat and cried and felt ashamed that I haven't been able to pick up where I left off like people seem to do here on Instagram! The reason for this post is that even when you’re in this bizarre industry you still get sucked in, you still feel a certain way when you see others posts. So this was so important for me to say, for all the women who think they should look, act or feel a certain way after a baby DONT! Don’t beat yourself up,” the new mum pleaded.


A post shared by Brooke Levi Vincent  (@brookelevivincent) on

"Do you and if 4/6/8weeks or even a year after giving birth you don’t fit in your old clothes don’t worry, you can always join my club. It’s important to be honest because being a new mummy is daunting enough! The most important thing is me & Mexx are healthy & happy and as soon as my baby boy looked at me, I realised he doesn’t care if I fit in my old jeans or not .. So I guess creased watermelon PJs & slippers for now it is,” Brooke added.

Preach it, Brooke!


Coronation Street actress Beverley Callard has announced she is leaving the soap. The actress played Liz McDonald for the past 30 years. 

She revealed to OK! Magazine that Liz will go out with a bang.

She told the publication, "I was in shock, I felt totally numb. I’ve been told Liz is going to go with one hell of a bang. I cant wait!"

The actress said that it was a difficult decision to make but she knows it is the right one because she has landed a wonderful new role.

Beverley is set to go on tour with The Thunder Girls, a comedy show starring women over the age of 50.

"There’s very little work in our industry for women over 50, but I’m 62 and recently I was doing three jobs at once.”


A post shared by Beverley Callard (@beverleycallard) on

Speaking of landing the role in The Thunder Girls, she said, "It made me realise how I was privileged to have the opportunity to do so when so many women my age no longer get the chance."

Beverley stressed that ageism in the industry is extremely frustrating, “Although I’ve had to leave the safety net of being in Coronation Street to do this, I’m hoping that ageist bosses, of which there are many, take note of how successful this show is and it starts the ball rolling on helping other women my age, get the roles they still deserve."

We’ll be sad to see Liz leave Coronation Street.

Michelle Keegan has spoken out about the difficulty of being in a long-distance marriage. The former Coronation Street star married TOWIE’s Mark Wright in 2015, but the pair have spent months apart due to work commitments.

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, the Our Girl star said they were apart for four months.

She explained, “He got the job in LA while I was in Malaysia [filming Our Girl]. We were apart for about 4 months. It was really tough. People said how did you deal with it and stuff.

"Thank god for FaceTime and things like that,” the actress stressed.

Michelle said the being apart for such a long period of time was tough for both her and Mark, but the couple managed to make it work.


A post shared by Mark Wright (@wrighty_) on

The Brassic actress said it was hard to get used to living with Mark again, especially after spending so much time apart.

She got used to her own company.

“You get so used to living on your own and doing your own thing. Little things… you like your house a certain way and he’d come in and he’d leave his underpants on the floor,” she grimaced.

"I’m not a cleaner, I’m not going to move them, they’ll be there for five days and I don’t care, I’m not moving them,” Michelle said.

The couple, who have been married for four years, are focusing on their careers for the time being but Michelle said that they are planning on having children one day.

The actress is constantly hounded about her family plans but stressed that it’ll happen when she is ready.

"My mum is on it as well. No plans yet, but we definitely do want children in the future,” the former soap star added.

The Jonathan Ross Show airs on ITV on Saturday at 10.30pm.

We are so happy for the Corrie star and wish him and his girlfriend all the best in their new journey together.


Former Coronation Street star Bruno Langley has spoken out for the first time after being charged with two counts of sexual assault.

The 34-year-old was given a 12-month community order last month after he pleaded guilty to groping two women at a Manchester night club.

It's understood the father-of-one said he had been drinking heavily, and claims he can't remember the incident taking place.

Speaking to The Sunday Mirror, he said: “Someone texted, saying ‘Do you remember what happened?’ I said I’d no idea and thought I’d done the usual thing of falling over or something. They explained my behaviour. I was embarrassed, shocked by my actions.”

Under his sentencing, Bruno must undergo rehabilitation and adhere to a 7am to 7pm curfew for one year.

He was also ordered to pay each victim £250 and is required to sign the UK's Sex Offenders' Register for the next five years.

The actor insisted he was “truly sorry” for his crimes, admitting there is “no excuse” for his actions.

 "I have no excuse, no one forced me to drink to such an extreme, but it is hard to explain why I would do anything as dreadful as that. It must have been awful for those women, and I am ashamed of myself. I'm truly sorry," he said.

"I sincerely apologise to the women, from the bottom of my heart. I promise I will never do anything like that again."

The soap star said he plans to spend the next year working on himself for the sake of his son.

“The only way I can prove how sorry I am to everyone involved is to make changes to my life and work on myself, to ensure this will never ever happen again. I wouldn’t let my son down again.”


Coronation Street actor, Bruno Langely, has left the ITV soap after 16 years.

Having played the role of Todd Grimshaw since 2001, Bruno's final scenes are expected to be aired in the near future, with producers working to write the character out of the show.

The news comes weeks after allegations emerged, accusing the actor of sexual assault, and while some reports have linked the police investigation with his departure, a source for the show told HuffPost UK that this is not the case.

“His contract ended on October 26th following an internal inquiry,” they said.

“This inquiry was separate to any police investigation and was independent of any inquiries they are making.”

Bruno, who has denied any claims of wrongdoing, said in a statement:  “Sadly, I will no longer be working on Coronation Street. Acting on the show has been the fulfilment of a personal dream.

“Playing the role of Todd Grimshaw since I was 17 years old has been a huge part of my life, and an absolute honour.

“I would like to thank all of my friends who work on the show for their love, friendship and support during this extremely difficult period.”

Adding: “I will make a further statement in due course, and when I am able to do so.”
