Former Coronation Street star Katherine Kelly has split from her husband Ryan Clark after seven years of marriage, according to reports.

The 40 year old actress, who played Becky McDonald on the ITV soap until 2012, is said to have been seen earlier this week helping removal staff load a van with belongings from her home.

Katherine, who also had a role in TV drama Liar, is said to have “made the difficult decision” to separate from her husband Ryan, who she shares two daughters with.

A spokesperson for the couple said: “Katherine and Ryan have made the difficult decision to separate.

“They see it as a positive move for both of them and the separation is completely amicable.

They added to The Sun Online: “Their children are their top priority and they will continue to co-parent as good friends.”

Katherine and Aussie digital analyst Ryan have two daughters, six year old Orla and three year old Rose, together.

The actress, who has also starred in Mr Selfridge, is said to be moving to the north of England to be closer to her family and her hometown of Barnsley.

The couple are said to be selling their home in North London after the split.

A source said: “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.”

Katherine and Ryan met at a New Year’s Eve party in Australia in 2010 then married in a ”shot gun-style wedding” in Las Vegas in 2013.

Speaking about her nuptials previously, Katherine said: “It was awesome. I’ll never forget that moment for the rest of my life.”

She added: “There was no proposal. We were in Vegas briefly in February on a road trip.

“We saw all the wedding chapels and brides everywhere and said, ‘That looks fun. Next time we are here…’

“If we had done a traditional wedding we would have been doing it for everyone else, but this was for us.”

Katherine described how her friends and family were delighted to hear they had tied the knot as she said: “They are all over the moon.

“They are low key like us so we’ll probably just go to the pub and raise a glass next time we’re up North.

“And next time we are in Australia we’ll celebrate all over again, probably a barbie on the beach.”
