Coronation Street's Alison King has announced her engagement
A huge congratulations is in order for actress Alison King - she just announced her engagement!
The Coronation Street star shared the news to OK! Magazine, with a photoshoot and interview with her fiancé.
Alison kept her relationship out of the limelight until now, and revealed her soon-to-be husband popped the question while on holiday with friends.
She told the magazine: "It was just a few days after our one-year anniversary. I had an inkling he was going to pop the question because he kept putting something on my finger and going, 'Right, close your eyes and forget this ever happened!'

"We’d also discussed marriage, too. I think we both went from 'No, we don’t ever need to get married', to 'Oh, we really want to get married!'"
David continued that he had it all planned - but it didn't really work out. He wanted to go on a cruise, but the weather took a turn and they had to make alternative arrangements.
"The crew were all in on the surprise, so they said: ‘We’re not going to cancel, don’t worry!’
"We got out of the marina and the waves were huge! I wouldn’t have dared to hold the ring in case it flew out of my hands. So I asked them to turn us around and they took us into the marina, where there were no people around."
Alison, who plays Carla Connor on the soap, began dating David in 2018 after they were introduced to each other by her personal trainer.
