CORONATION Street’s Bernie Winter has been unlucky in love – but that’s not the case for the actress who plays her.

Jane Hazlegrove, who will also be familiar to soap fans as Casualty’s Dixie, is married in real life.

The 54-year-old wed Emmerdale and Harry Potter star Isobel Middleton in 2015.

Jane spoke about their relationship on Lorraine saying in 2019: “She’s sensational, a really beautiful woman. I am very blessed.”

She joked that the pair, an item for 27 years, were still together because they had never worked together on screen.

However, they have both appeared in soaps, with Isobel playing no fewer than three characters in Emmerdale.

She was Jean Rawson in 2020, a barrister during Simon McManus’ 2018 trial, and a character called Dr Lane in 2014.

She also played Sadie Banks in EastEnders and provides many of the voices in the Harry Potter video games.

Jane meanwhile has appeared in London’s Burning, The Bill, Doctors and Holby City.

The pair were photographed wearing matching sunglasses on the Coronation Street bus at Manchester Pride last week.
