Coronation Street star Georgia Taylor 'secretly' splits from actor after 14 years

Corrie star Georgia Taylor has split from her long-term partner, according to media reports.

The popular actress, who plays Toyah Battersby in the iconic soap, is understood to have 'secretly broken up' with her partner of 14 years, fellow actor Mark Letheren.

The pair are said to no longer be living together in the home they shared after splitting more than six months ago in July 2022, according to The Sun.

It comes after Mark - who previously starred as Simon Kitson in The Bill - hinted at the break-up in an emotional social media post at the end of 2022. The Mirror reports how he wrote at the time: “It’s been the worst year after a number of increasingly s**t years. My life finally fell apart.

“Thankfully, I’m incredibly lucky and have a family who have picked up the pieces and are trying to help me re-build myself. It’s thanks to them I’m still here and trying to move forward. For that I am truly grateful.

“Whatever the new year brings I hope that strength, humility, joy and love are in abundance for you all.” Georgia previously spoke about how she first met Mark when she appeared on Lorraine Kelly's ITV daytime show.

The couple lived with each other. (

"We saw you in Law and Order, we saw you in Blackpool, and of course we saw you in Casualty, so many other things that you did," Lorraine said. "I mean it’s great to have you back and I love the fact that in Casualty, you know you always make friends on set, that’s where you met your husband, which is rather lovely. The two of you being in sort of the same job, it’s really nice that."

Georgia pointed out that she wasn't married to her partner but said that they "practically are" because they had been together so long. Apologising, Lorraine said: "Oh I’m so sorry! I keep doing this!"

"That’s okay," Georgia replied. "We met, he was a sort of semi-regular character, he was playing a councillor ironically, which is then what Toyah ended up doing. We met, gosh 13 years ago. So yeah, got him out of the job and lots of friends and it was a really good time."

The Mirror reached out to Georgia's reps for comment.
