Soap star Andy Whyment has enjoyed his first pint at his local pub in six months
Andy Whyment has enjoyed his first pint in six months in his local pub after lockdown restrictions were eased across England.
The 40-year-old actor – who plays Kirk Sutherland on 'Coronation Street' – has taken to Instagram to post a photo of himself and his wife Nichola Willis at their local pub.
Alongside a picture of them enjoying a pint, Andy wrote on the photo-sharing platform: "Shops have reopened and our 1st draught pint in 5 and a half months down at our local club the Botanical Gardens feels like a bit of normality has resumed have a great day everyone [smiling and heart emojis] (sic)"
In response, his 'Coronation Street' co-star Daniel Brocklebank said: "Yay!!!! [clapping emojis] (sic)"
Daniel, 41 – who plays Billy Mayhew – has also discussed the easing of lockdown restrictions on his Twitter account.
He said on the micro-blogging platform: "If lockdown has taught me anything it’s that the smallest things were definitely the biggest. I will never take anything for granted again. Let’s get back to living."
Last year, meanwhile, Andy and his wife celebrated their wedding anniversary at Alan Halsall's house.
The actor and his partner Nichola – who tied the knot back in 2007 – enjoyed a socially-distanced catch-up with his co-star.
Sharing a group snap on Instagram, Andy wrote: "We've come round to spend our Anniversary with @alanhalsall @missdrewmerry93 and Sienna not seen them for 12 weeks we've really missed them xx (sic)"
In the photo, the TV star and his wife posed with their kids Tom and Hollie.
Alan shared the same photo on his own social media account, adding: "Lockdown has reaffirmed to me ... It's not what I have in my life that matters... It's who I have in it that counts !!! #familytime (sic)"
