Coronation Street and Shameless actor Sally Carman says she made her fiancé Joe Duttine propose a second time, because the first time had been too quick.

Along with co-star Sally Ann Matthews, Carman — who plays Corrie's Abi Franklyn — spoke to Kate Thornton on White Wine Question Time ahead of ITV's super soap week.

She talked about when Duttine, who also appears in the soap as Tim Metcalfe, proposed to her in lockdown 2020, while they were staying with his sister.

She said: “We were staying in the Dales with two of his kids who I think were then 10 and 11. He'd just read a Benjamin Meyers book called the The Gallows Pole, which Shane Meadows is making into a film right now.

“It's all about these coin forgers and he was banging on about this bloody book for weeks and weeks and weeks and I'm like: 'I'm glad you're enjoying that book, I won't need to read it because you've literally told me everything that happens in it!'

“And we were walking around this big field on this walk and he went: 'Kids, have a look in between the dry stone walling because you know, they used to put coins and precious things to hide them in the walls.

“'You look at that bit Jeanie, and Joseph you look at that thing, Sal why don't you get involved?' I'd had a few beers because you know, that's what we did in lockdown.

“So I'm having a look and there's this box. And I opened it. I'm like: 'No way.' And then there was another box inside. And I turned around and he was on one knee.

“And he said: 'Will you marry me?' But I made him do it again, because he went too quickly. I went: 'That was too quick. Do it again so I can really enjoy it.' And then we all had a big bear hug and had some champagne. And it was gorgeous.”

She talked to Thornton about how many times her path had crossed with Duttine before they got together, and that even though they had both appeared in Shameless previously, she hadn't paid any attention to him at the time.

Following on from when Sally Ann Matthews had discovered that Corrie's Amanda Barrie is her cousin, Thornton asked the pair about any other real-life examples of six degrees of separation.

Carman said: “My six degrees of separation would just be the amount of friends me and [Joe Duttine] have in common. Or the fact that we went to the same cinema in London when we were at drama school and never met or we were at a party and never met.”

Talking about their time on Shameless she said: “I didn't see him at all. Or if I did I didn't really pay any attention. To be honest, I didn't really like him when I met him!

“I'm a massive romantic, I'm such I'm such a soft a*se I love all of that. But it took a long time for me to think Joe Duttine might be something worth backing!”
