Coronation Street star Alan Halsall has reportedly split from his wife of nine years Lucy-Jo Hudson.
Alan, who plays Tyrone Dobbs in the long-running soap, is said to have joked to friends that he’s having a mid-life crisis.
Lucy-Jo, 34, and Alan, 35, married in 2009 and welcomed daughter Sienna Rae in 2013. They became an item after Lucy-Jo was cast in Coronation Street in 2002.
“It’s very amicable but they’ve decided to go their separate ways," a source said. “Alan’s been joking that he’s having a mid-life crisis and he went and treated himself to a brand new car five days ago. It’s a difficult time for both of them.
“They’re devastated the marriage is over but have vowed to stay friends. They still really care for each other," they added to The Sun.
Alan is said to have treated himself to a £35,000 convertible Mercedes, while last month he reportedly told pals he wanted to splash out on a Harley Davidson after checking out the showroom in Manchester.
"He was referring to Lucy as his ex-wife and joking about having a mid-life crisis. He seemed in pretty good spirits, though," the source went on.
The pair previously separated in March 2016, with sources claiming at the time that their relationship had lost its spark.
But they surprised fans when they revealed they had patched things up just months later.
During their brief split Lucy-Jo was linked to her Doctors co-star Andy Moss – but the actress called the rumours "absolute nonsense" during an appearance on Loose Women.
They been getting building work done on their five-bedroom dream mansion in Salford, but are now living separately.
After leaving Corrie in 2005, Lucy-Jo starred in ITV vet drama Wild at Heart between 2006 and 2009 before a second spell from 2012 until 2013. She played Rhiannon Davies in Doctors in 2016.
Alan has been playing Tyrone Dobbs since 1998.
