Sally Ann Matthews commented: “I mean, who couldn’t love that face x.”

Joe’s onscreen wife Sally Dynevor responded by commenting several kissing emojis.

It comes as the pair recently announced they have pushed back their wedding plans due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While appearing on Loose Women Sally revealed they do not have a date in mind yet but are hoping to tie the knot in 2022.

Sally told Jane Moore the reason they have pushed it back is so they can have more guests.

She said on the ITV show: “I think personally I’m not sure where we are gonna be in December, the way things have been dealt with.

“So I didn’t wanna risk arranging a wedding…. we want to have a party so if there’s only 15 people allowed to come to that, it’s not great really.

“So I thought it was best we defer it for a year and hopefully get the wedding we want.”
