'Coronation Street' star Hayley Tamaddon has split from comedian Marcus Brigstocke
'Coronation Street' star Hayley Tamaddon has split from her boyfriend, Marcus Brigstocke.
The couple - who had an affair together in 2010 when they were both starring in musical 'Spamalot' - have gone their separate ways after a series of rows.
The stand-up comic then left his wife of 12 years, Sophie Prideaux, for the 37-year-old soap star, who plays Andrea Beckett in the ITV show .
A source close to the couple told The Sun newspaper: "Marcus and Hayley ... had four years together but eventually realised it wasn't going to work between them.
"They supported each other through a lot and it is a shame given that Marcus gave up so much to be with Hayley when they met.
"But unfortunately sometimes things run their course. Now they're both focusing on moving on."
Previously, Marcus admitted he tried to work things out with his wife before he started dating Hayley.
Last year, he said: "There are things I feel ashamed of. I am now a person who had an affair. However, I'm happy with my girlfriend, my kids are happy and here we all are.
"I said to my wife this is what happened and I'm very sorry. We tried to put things back together but it became clear it wasn't going to work."
