Corrie's Sally is off for a break - in the Maldives

Coronation Street's Sally Dynevor, who plays feisty Sally Webster, says she is off on her 'dream holiday' with her husband - to the Maldives.

The actress, 47, who was diagnosed with breast cancer while filming Sally Webster's cancer story, says she is looking forward to a romantic break with her husband, Emmerdale scriptwriter Tim Dynevor. They are leaving their three children with Sally's brother.

Speaking in the TV Times, she says '... Having cancer has made me realise that you have to do things when you can.

'It's something my husband and I have always wanted to do and we're looking forward to having a week where we can just read books and talk to each other.

'We've been knee-deep in work and children for so long, we haven't sat down and had proper chats.

'You need those times together when you're a couple, and we're both really looking forward to it.

They've chosen the right place - Maldives are a paradise for a well-earned break.

Can we come too please?
