CORONATION Street fans got emotional over a heartbreaking tribute to soap icons as Tyrone and Fiz finally got married.

The couple – who are played by actors Alan Halsall and Jennie McAlpine in the ITV soap – tied the knot after the mechanic planned a surprise ceremony for them.

Tyrone and Fiz finally got married on Christmas Day

The couple paid tribute to Jack and Vera in a toast at the Rovers

And in classic style, the couple’s nuptials were marked by paying tribute to Jack and Vera Duckworth – the longtime married couple of the cobbles who helped them get together in the first place.

It wasn’t easy to get Fiz and Tyrone down the aisle though.

Viewers know the couple have been through the wars recently with Tyrone’s affair and Fiz marrying another man.

But Tyrone decided that he finally wanted to put a ring on it – and organised for a stunning ceremony for the couple with all their friends and family.

However his plan to throw Fiz off the scent went awry when his fake plans for a takeaway left her fuming.

She left the house in the morning determined to get a turkey for their meal – but ended up breaking down on the way without her phone.

After getting help from a mystery man called Chris, Fiz made her way back to the cobbles and finally married Tyrone.

However it was clear that not everyone was on board with the surprise nuptials.

After making a shock return to the cobbles, Tyrone’s grandmother Evelyn made it clear that she wasn’t a fan of a surprise wedding, but still turned up to show her support.

Celebrating their marriage with a drink in the Rovers, the show then noted Jack and Vera, who had been “looking out for them” from beyond the grave.

The sweet comment left viewers missing the iconic pair, who were known for their love as much as their squabbles – just like Tyrone and Fiz.

One wrote: “Awwww a Jack and Vera mention” next to crying emojis.

A second said: “Getting into this Corrie, I’ll raise a glass to Jack an Vera as well!”

Another celebrated the rare happy Christmas episode, and said: “A nice happy ending for Fiz and Tyrone. A nice dose of comedy and drama, which is what Coronation Street excels at!” 

Jack and Vera were beloved members of the series for decades

Fiz and Tyrone’s wedding naturally didn’t go off without a hitch
