Real life of Corrie's Amy Barlow actress - Waterloo Road boyfriend and plush home

Coronation Street's Elle Mulvaney has grown up on the soap, making her debut in Weatherfield 13 years ago.

The actress, 20, plays Amy Barlow, the daughter of Steve McDonald and Tracy Barlow.

Elle is currently involved in a hard-hitting storyline with her co-star James Craven and has impressed viewers with her performance.

She's also been lucky enough to learn from some of the soap's most-loved stars, including William [Bill] Roache and told us: "I always say, ‘If you love your job, why leave?’ Bill obviously loves it. He is Corrie’s biggest fan."

So as the star's career continues to flourish on the cobbles, here's the low down on Elle's life off-screen.

Famous boyfriend

Elle went public with her former co-star Liam Scholes just before Christmas.

She sparked rumours she was dating the actor, who played Eli Higginson during Corrie's huge hate crime storyline, when she posted a snap of the pair larking around at Winter Wonderland in London's Hyde Park.

"Miss u winter wonderland," Elle, gushed as she shared a sweet snap of herself and Liam.

The actor, who has recently starred in the reboot of Waterloo Road as Noel McManus and is also a singer with his band The Lanks, also popped up in another photo with Elle in December.

The sweet snap showed the pair looking into each other's eyes next to a Christmas tree, with Liam looking particularly striking sporting an emerald green suit.

Stunning home

Elle still lives at home with her parents in Cheshire in a palatial pad, which boasts a series of stunning features.

The actress often shows off the home in her Instagram posts in which its grand entrance hallway and spiral winding staircase can be seen.

The gaff also features a cosy living room with two plush grey sofas - which the family's two pet pooches, Bowie and Ziggy, make the most of.

Selfies taken in Elle's bedroom show off a sophisticated cream colour palette, with a plush carpet and mirrored bedside tables.

The room also features an elegant chandelier.

Showbiz pals

When she's not filming for Corrie, Elle is super close to a number of her co-stars including James, Harriet Bibby, who played Summer Spellman, and Jack James Ryan who starred as her former on-screen boyfriend Jacob Hay.

The gang seem to be the best of pals, regularly rocking up in each other's photos on social media.

Speaking to the Mirror previously about their friendship, Elle said: "Me, Harriet, Jack and James all just really get on… we’ve got a group chat together and talk all the time. We’re like a real-life foursome."
