Coronation Street fans brand Simon Gregson ‘next Bond’ in ‘hot’ throwback snap

Coronation Street legend Simon Gregson was almost unrecognisable in a rare throwback snap as the star celebrated his milestone wedding anniversary to his wife Emma Gleave.

The loveable ITV star is best known for his iconic role as Steve McDonald on the ITV soap which he has starred on for more than 34 years.

But the Cobbles has done more than just launch his career on the silver screen, after his on-screen mum Beverley Callard introduced him to his soon-to-be wife on the show back in 2005.

And it’s clear to see it was love at first sight after the happy couple tied the knot five years later in a lavish ceremony surrounded by his fellow co-stars.

Now, the fan-favourite has shared a previously unseen snap from their big day as he marked his 13th wedding anniversary to his other half.

In the sweet snap, Simon could be seen dressed up to the nines in a dapper tuxedo while his stunning wife opted for a sparkly white dress which featured a plunging sweetheart neckline and a soft pink tulle skirt.

The blonde bombshell pulled her luscious golden tresses up into an intricate updo and added a wash of glamorous makeup for the celebration.

Taking to Instagram, the TV veteran penned: “13 years after I knew. She’s got queues outside of her business waiting to eat the best food in town. So unbelievably proud of my angel.”

But it appears as though the TV star was mistaken, as he quickly corrected his original caption, adding: “18 yrs. Obvs having too much fun.”

The happy couple went on to welcome three beautiful sons together, Alfie 16, Harry 14 and seven-year-old Henry.
