Pictured: Coronation Street's real-life couples join celebs on red carpet as Hamilton hits Manchester

Corrie stars and real-life couple Sally Carman and Joe Duttine walked the carpet

The stars were out in force for the opening night of the highly-anticipated UK tour premiere of Hamilton at Manchester's Palace Theatre.

Lin-Manuel Miranda's multi-award winning biographical musical chronicling the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton and the political history of the United States is full of star power, but a number of Coronation Street stars and their partners also hit the red carpet for the show's press night.

Amongst them, Corrie stars and real-life couple Sally Carman and Joe Duttine walked the carpet, along with Rob Mallard and his partner. They were joined on the glamorous red carpet by Sally Dynevor and her daughter Hattie, as well as Les Dennis who starred in the soap between 2014 and 2016.

Sally and Joe - who play Abi Franklin and Tim Metcalfe, respectively, on the ITV show - have officially been a couple for five years. Earlier this summer she posted a photo with her and Joe with five yellow heart emojis in a nod to how long they've been together.

Coronation Street star Rob Mallard, who has recently opened up about the hidden health condition, was also in attendance. The 31-year-old actor who plays Daniel Osbourne in the ITV soap was joined by his partner Matthew Martin, co-ordinating in black and beige ensembles.

It is not the pair's first outing to the theatre either. A few months back they were photographed at the Palace Theatre in summer for Heathers The Musical press night.

Keen to get a first glimpse of the show that has wowed Broadway and the West End audiences for the past decade, the Manchester press night was also attended by Corrie star Sally Dynevor and her daughter. Also making an appearance was TV presenter Jenny Powell, who most recently hosted the fifth annual This is Manchester Awards in the city, in a mustard-coloured pant suit.

Bury's own Jsky joined them on the red carpet wearing a showstopping bronze number. And Angela Griffin who has starred in both Coronation Street and Waterloo Road also looked glamorous in a black two-piece and trainers.
