Katie McGlynn has confirmed her relationship with 'TOWIE' star Ricky Rayment.

The 30-year-old actress - who is best known for having played Sinead Tinker on the ITV1 soap opera 'Coronation Street' from 2015 until 2019 - took to Instagram on Valentine's Day (14.02.24) to share a romantic gallery with reality star Ricky.

She captioned the post: "Every day is like Valentine’s Day with you".

In the photos, the happy couple can be seen on various outings together and in one snap are sharing a kiss.

Raymond, 33, appeared on 'The Only Way is Essex' from 2012 until 2015 whilst Katie got her big break when she was cast as teenage tearaway Jodie 'Scout' Allen in school-based drama 'Waterloo Road', with 'Emmerdale' star Lisa Riley appearing as the character's unfit mother.

In 2013, she joined 'Corrie' as the niece of Beth Tinker (Lisa George) and went on to marry Chesney Brown (Sam Aston) but passed away in 2019 after a battle with cervical cancer.

Katie went on to compete in 'Strictly Come Dancing' before landing a role in 'Hollyoaks' and last year began playing Cleo in a stage adaptation of Peter James' 'thriller novel 'Wish You Were Dead' but upon the anniversary of Sinead's death in October, she reflected that she will always "cherish" her time on 'Coronation Street' as she reminded her female followers of the importance of going for their checkups because of how they have the potential to save lives.

She wrote on Instagram: "I can’t quite believe it’s been four years since we said goodbye to Sinead Tinker… a character I’ll always cherish playing!

"As you all know, Sinead died from cervical cancer… so please ladies, don’t forget to go for your smears, it could quite literally save your life."
