They are “over the moon.”

Coronation Street star Faye Brookes and singer Gareth Gates are reportedly engaged, four months after they announced their split.

The couple are said to be planning on throwing a massive engagement party to celebrate later this month at the Gotham Hotel in Manchester.

The Sun report that the pair have signed a “high-profile magazine” deal to officially announce the news of their engagement.

A source told the publication:

“Faye and Gareth are over the moon.

“They’d been together a long time and the split was a bit of a blip, but they’ve totally got over it and now they want to plan their future as a couple.

“There will be lots of Faye’s co-stars and other famous faces alongside their friends and family – everyone will be delighted for them.”

The pair announced in September last year that they were “taking some time apart”.


In a statement posted to Twitter, Gareth said at the time:

“@Faye_Brookes and I are choosing to take some time apart.

“We remain the very best of friends. We’d like to thank you for all your support over the years.”

Faye, who plays Corrie’s Kate Connor, met Gareth in 2012 while they were starring in the UK tour of Legally Blonde.
