    Ellie Leach landed the role of Faye Windass on Coronation Street back in 2011 when she was introduced as an adoptive daughter to Anna and Eddie Windass.

    One of Faye's earliest and most controversial storylines came in 2015 when, at just 13, she became one of the youngest characters in British soap history to give birth. She left the ITV soap earlier this year and is currently starring in the 2023 series of strictly-come-dancing>Strictly Come Dancing.

    Away rom the dancefloor, the young soap star is all loved up and in a long-term relationship with boyfriend, Reagan Pettman. The couple got together in July 2018 and have been going strong ever since, with the pair regularly sharing loved up pictures together on their travels.

    They regularly jet off on holidays, including exotic trips to Florida and the Dominican Republic, and often gush over their love for each other. As Ellie continues to battle for the glitterball trophy, Daily Star check out her much less tumultuous life with her beau off-screen.

    ‘Model' partner

    The star is all loved up with her long-term partner Raegan, and it’s clear Ellie is head over heels. Her handsome beau in fact is often a model, something the star claims is not true. Speaking to Metro, she was asked about claims he is a budding model, to which she replied: “No, he’s not!

    There are stories on the internet saying he’s a model. He studied performing arts at college, which is where we met, but then he decided he didn’t want to go into acting. I said to him, ‘Everyone keeps saying you’re a model,’ and he went: ‘Ooh, maybe I should be!’” The pair have not announced any plans to marry just yet but fans are on the edge of their seats waiting for the exciting news to drop.


    The pair often celebrate major milestones with fans with the pair often gushing over each other on their birthdays. Ellie wished Reagan a happy birthday on Instagram and paid tribute to him in the caption as she said: "happy birthday to you, I love you more than you could ever imagine, you are so special to me and I’m so lucky that you are mine."

    And the previous year she shared a similar message of love on his birthday and said: "Happy birthday to the most beautiful little chicken. My happiest times are with you and you mean more to me than you will ever know. Hope you have a very special day and get spoilt rotten, I love you with all my heart.

    Sun-kissed trips

    Ellie often shares snaps of her romantic getaways with beau Reagan. The talented actress previosuly escaped the bustling streets of Weatherfield and sought solace in sunny Lindos, nestled on the picturesque Greek island of Rhodes. Ellie took to her Instagram account, treating her legion of fans to a tantalizing glimpse into their blissful retreat.

    Accompanied by an array of captivating snapshots, the soap starlet aptly captioned her post with the words: “fun, food, and new friends.” The snaps feature Ellie and her partner, a view from their accommodation, some amazing food and a sign that reads “how to have a beach body: 1. Have a body, 2. Go to the beach”.
