Suranne Jones has got married in a secret ceremony.
The 36-year-old actress got hitched to magazine editor Laurence Akers in a low-key ceremony at Islington Town Hall in North London
A source said: "Suranne is very private and not the type of person to have her wedding in the magazines or on social media."
The surprise wedding follows a whirlwind romance for the former 'Coronation Street' star, who first met her 46-year-old beau last year and got engaged just six weeks later in May 2014.
However, Suranne - who was previously engaged to IT consultant Jim Phelan - insisted on having a simple ceremony which they spontaneously planned at the last minute.
The source told The Sun newspaper: "The nuptials were very hastily arranged with nothing too fancy.
"But it was intimate and romantic, and both the bride and groom were very happy."
The raven-haired star is most well known for playing Karen McDonald in 'Coronation Street' - for which she won the British Soap Award for Best Actress for two consecutive years in 2004 and 2005 - but has since starred in shows including 'Harley Street' and 'Scott & Bailey'.
