Corrie stars Rob Mallard and Daniel Brocklebank 'SPLIT'


Coronation Street stars Daniel Brocklebank and Rob Mallard have reportedly split, just two months after going public with their romance.

The soap couple – who met after Rob joined the cobbles last year – are said to have split due to the strain of working together and being in a relationship.

A source told The Sun: ‘It was a lot of pressure for both of them to be working on the same show and going out – in the end something had to give.’

‘The only concern I had was, if I’m with a female character, will an audience who knows I’m gay in real life believe it?

‘But that was just my fears because I do believe they will.’
