Dancing on Ice star Faye Brookes opened up to her Instagram followers about her close and enduring bond with former Coronation Street co-stars Kym Marsh and Alison King.

The trio all play parts in the close knit Connor family on the long-running ITV soap. But it turns out the threesome are just as close in real life. Faye,33, – who is currently competing in Dancing on Ice with new partner Matt Evers after Hamish Gaman dropped out – starred as Kate Connor, step sister to Alison’s character Clara and cousin to Michelle, played by Kym.

During a question and answer session with her Instagram followers, one fan asked: “Do you miss working with your Connor family? And do you stay in touch with Ali and Kym”

Corrie fans will be pleased to know that the actress confirmed she shares a close bond with her on screen family.

Faye wrote: “I don’t know where I would be without these two women in my life. Lucky to have them as my on-screen family, but very lucky to call them my friends”

She added a gorgeous picture of the three actresses to compliment her photo – which Kym later reposted to her own Instagram story, with the caption, “Love youuu @faye_brookes”

It’s not the first time the trio have opened up about their friendship. In her column for OK! magazine, Kym revealed the supportive messages she’d sent Faye during a time of need.

Back in 2018, Faye was engaged to Pop Idol runner up Gareth Gates. The pair split before the wedding and Kym opened up about the touching advice she gave her friend.

She wrote: “It’s always so sad to hear that people have split up, and the news that my former colleague Faye Brookes and her fiancé Gareth Gates have called off their wedding was a shame, especially as they’ve been together for a while.”

Gareth and Faye met in 2012 while starring in Legally Blonde: The Musical, shortly before Gareth split from his first wife. The pair then started their relationship which lasted for six years until the split.

Kym continued: “I sent Faye a text to let her know I’m thinking of her and I said I hoped she was doing okay.”

Like any good friend, Kym spoke honestly with Faye. “As sad as it is, it’s better to split before walking down the aisle with someone than marrying someone knowing it’s not the right thing to do,” she wrote. “Sometimes the bravest and best thing you can do is walk away from a relationship.”
