Katherine Kelly, who portrayed Becky McDonald on Coronation Street, has reportedly split from her husband of seven years.

According to The Sun, the 40-year-old was seen earlier this week helping removal staff take belongings from her house.

She struck up a relationship with Ryan Clark, an Aussie digital analyst, in 2011, and wed two years later in Las Vegas.

The couple, who share two children together – Orla, six, and Rose, three – are reportedly putting their North London house on the market following the break-up.

A source added to the publication: "It's tremendously sad that it hasn’t worked out, but their decision to split wasn’t a rash one and their relationship isn’t a victim of the recent lockdown.

"They’ve thought about the future of their family long and hard and know that this is the best decision.

"They’re on great terms and constantly in touch discussing their kids."
