Coronation Street couple Joe Duttine and Sally Carman enjoy date night in Manchester

Coronation Street couple Joe Duttine and Sally Carman enjoyed their time away from the cobbles with a relaxing date night in Manchester.

Joe, 52, and Sally, 41, have been together since 2018 when they met on the set of the ITV soap before they got engaged during the first coronavirus lockdown in 2020.

The pandemic halted their wedding day arrangements on several occasions but the soap duo finally tied the knot in July this year and looked cosy when they went to a lovely restaurant for date night.

Joe, who portrays Tim Metcalfe on the cobbles, was looking dapper as he wore a brown baker boy hat couple with a white t-shirt and black cardigan, while Sally - who plays Abi Franklin in the soap - wore a denim dress.

Sally, writing to her 145,000 Instagram followers, wrote: " Oh @stretfordcanteen what a joy you are! Understated excellence throughout.

"A menu that excites and food that delivers. An absolute gem! If you enjoy food then book yourselves a table. Seriously, this place is special."

Former Coronation Street and Emmerdale star Hayley Tamaddon replied: "I love it in there!".

John Simm, known for portraying Sam Tyler in Life on Mars, was also complimentary of the Manchester restaurant. He wrote: "It’s a total GEM, isn’t it!?

"Hands down our favourite place to eat in Manchester. Bloody love that place! @stretfordcanteen."

Sally Dynevor, who plays Joe's onscreen wife Sally Webster, added: "Fabulous. Can’t wait to try this xx."

Sally was enjoying a tipple of red wine while Joe had a glass of water as they posed for the camera.

The Abi Franklin actress embraced her husband for the first snap before toasting to the camera for the second photo as the intimate restaurant.

Sally added a khaki bomber jacket to her look and Joe wore a leather jacket to keep warm as they sat outside with the 'Stretford Canteen' sign emblazoned above them for the final photo that she shared.

Joe has been on Coronation Street for more than nine years after joining the soap in 2013, while Sally, whose character is married to Kevin Webster, has been part of the show since 2017.
