Ex Corrie star Sally Lindsay marries musician boyfriend

Loose Women star Sally Lindsay has tied the knot with her boyfriend at a wedding full of celebrity friends.

The actress, who made her name as barmaid Shelley in Coronation Street, walked up the aisle alongside musician boyfriend Steve White and said she would not have done it any other way.

She told Hello! Magazine: "The person who looks after me the most in the world is Steve so it would seem daft if we didn't walk up the aisle together.

"It was also really important to me that we walked down as a family."

The couple, who have been together for 10 years, have three-year-old twin boys.

Sally said: "Some girls have been planning their wedding day since they were six, but I was never one of them.

"And to be honest, I never thought I'd have kids. Because of the career I'd chosen, I never thought it would be possible. And then I met Steve. I wanted to get married and have children with him.

"It was the man I met who changed everything for me, not the fantasy."

Among the guests were Coronation Street stars past and present including Denise Welch, Suranne Jones and Antony Cotton.

Sally said: "It was amazing and emotional and lovely to see everyone's faces. "There were lots of very kind people there and people I'd known and loved for so long."

Steve, whose career includes a stint on drums with Paul Weller's band The Style Council, said: "The service was perfect - personal but simple, emotional and heartfelt, which is what we wanted it to be."
