Coronation Street star Chris Quinten’s fiancee Robyn Delabarre, 21, was hospitalised just days after he popped the question.
The actor, 61 – who is best known for playing Gail Platt’s husband Brian Tilsley on the soap – got down on one knee in a heartwarming video as the pair were on holiday in Mykonos, seven months after they began dating.
But just days after, Robyn had to be put on a drip after she collapsed with sun stroke during the pair’s romantic getaway – admitting on This Morning that she had used “factor free oil” instead of sun cream by accident.
She had put on Facebook: “Nice relaxing day with our Hot tub and view after a horrible trip to a&e last night and me ended up on a drip that cost £500.
“Never a dull moment lucky he held my hand and cuddled up in the hospital bed with me always looking after me.”
Robyn – who previously dated late Love Island star Mike Thalassitis – met him while working as a stripper at a club he managed.

Discussing the way they met, Chris told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: “I’d worked seven years at Stringfellows, and I had no connection with anyone. I just fell in love with her personality."
He added: “We love the same music, and it just was a snowball of events – it was just one combination after another."
Robyn added: “He’s much older, but we had such a nice connection and just got on well."
Discussing the proposal, Chris added: “I’d not really been drinking either, so I’d had no excuse!
“Robin kept saying she wanted a stripper, we wanted a stripper, but we couldn’t get one, so I’m going to strip.
“That’s when I put the music down, and popped the question.”
