The Coronation Street actress is single again

Coronation Street star Samia Ghadie has confirmed that she’s broken up with long-term boyfriend and former co-star Will Thorp.

The couple’s relationship is said to have ‘fizzled out’ because they were working in different parts of the country.

‘She’s had enough and decided to call time on the relationship,’ says a source.

‘Both she and Will were obviously a bit upset because it was just before Christmas. But now she’s really happy being single and is ready to mingle again.’

Samia, 30, who plays Maria Connor on the ITV soap, will partner Sylvain Longchambon for the new series of Dancing On Ice.

The actress is rumoured to have become close to Sylvain, 32 – who got together with Jennifer Metcalfe on the 2011 show – but she denies that they’ve formed a personal relationship.

‘[Will and I] have split up,’ Samia tells The Sun.

‘That’s it.’
