Tina O’Brien has married her partner of five years Adam Crofts.
The Coronation Street star, 35, tied the knot in a surprise New Year’s Eve ceremony held in Manchester on Monday.
Beginning 2019 as a newlywed, Tina was joined by a whole host of her co-stars from the ITV soap, including her onscreen mother Helen Worth (Gail Platt) and soap brother Jack P. Shepherd (David Platt).
According to The Mirror, the romantic nuptials took place at the King Street Tavern Hotel in Manchester, that boasts an infinity pool and rooftop bar.
Tina and Adam reportedly hired out the 40-bedroom hotel for their big day, which saw 80 guests, including family, friends and soap stars, turn out for the special occasion.
It’s believed the actress had wanted to keep her wedding under wraps and is still yet to confirm her newlywed status – choosing to shun social media in the lead up to the ceremony.
Joining Tina and Adam for their wedding was their four-year-old son Beau and her daughter Scarlett, 10, whom she shares with ex-partner Ryan Thomas.
While Ryan – who recently confirmed his relationship with girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh is back on track – was reportedly invited to Tina’s wedding, it seems he chose not to attend. Instead, he revealed on social media that he jetted overseas, touching down on New Year’s Eve.
Those in attendance, however, included many of Tina’s Coronation Street co-stars, including her soap family The Platts who she has starred alongside for more than 15 years – though she did take a break from the soap between 2007 and 2015.
Helen Worth and her husband of five years Trevor Dawson, Jack P. Shepherd and his girlfriend Hanni Treweek and Lucy Fallon – who plays Tina’s onscreen daughter Bethany Platt – and her boyfriend Tom Leech were all seen arriving at the wedding venue ahead of the ceremony.
Julia Goulding – who plays David Platt’s girlfriend on Coronation Street – was also in attendance along with Tina’s on-screen fiancé Mikey North (Gary Windass) and his wife Rachael Isherwood.
I’m A Celebrity star Sair Khan arrived later for the wedding reception with boyfriend and Our Girl actor Simon Lennon.
Tina’s wedding to husband Adam comes two and a half years after the couple confirmed their engagement.
Adam had proposed to the mother-of-two in May 2016 in a Manchester bar, after five years of dating.
He met Tina seven years ago when her daughter, then two, approached the rugby player in a branch of Starbucks in Manchester and introduced herself.
Rather than ‘I’m Scarlett’ she only said ‘Hello, man,’ and the rest, it seems, is history.
Speaking of her husband’s sweet proposal, Tina previously told OK! magazine: ‘ My heart was hammering, I opened the door and Adam was standing there in his shirt and all smartly dressed.
‘There were candles all around the room and flowers and petals on the bed in the shape of a heart.’
‘He immediately got down on one knee and asked me to marry him,’ she revealed, before confessing: ‘He said lots of lovely words but I can’t remember any of them!’
