STEPHANIE Davis has been revealed as the latest face to join the cast of Coronation Street – but it’s not her first time in the limelight.

The actress already has a long list of impressive credits, as well as a star-studded love life line-up, that will no doubt impress fans.

Stephanie, 30, was announced as the latest ITV soap sign up last week, as she prepares to play man eater Courtney Vance.

The star will feature in a steamy storyline alongside Archers star Ryan Early, who will play her husband Darren.

But Coronation Street isn’t Stephanie’s first TV rodeo – as she is already well-known thanks to a number of impressive performances.

Stephanie is best known for portraying Sinead O’Connor in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks before her character was written out of the action.

She’s also appeared in Big Brother in 2016, as well as BBC talent-search competition Over The Rainbow in 2010.

And all this TV exposure has meant she’s crossed paths with many other celebs – having an impressive list of exes.

Back in 2011, Stephanie briefly dated former One Direction hunk Zayn Malik for around five months.

She dumped the singing sensation after finding out that he had been seeing Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards.

Stephanie discovered he had been having secret meetings with Perrie, 29, who Zayn got engaged to shortly after.

She explained at the time: “We dated for five months in 2011 just before he started seeing Perrie. We actually broke up because I found out he had been meeting up with Perrie.

“It was just one of those things. Zayn is a good lad really, I don’t have anything bad to say about him.”

Shortly after she dated Emmerdale star Sam Reece before heading to the Big Brother house in 2016 – where she publicly cheated on him.

She grew close to her co-star Jeremy McConnell while in the house, and were even said to have had sex while starring on the show.

The couple welcomed a song, Caben, together – in 2017, but the pair were split after Jeremy, 33, was accused of assault.

The model was later convicted of attacking Stephanie, leaving her black and blue and suffering a miscarriage with their second child.

Stephanie moved on with fellow Hollyoaks star Owen Warner, who is best known for playing Romeo Nightingale on the show.

The pair dated for nine months, with rumours swirling they had got engaged as Owen, 25, stepped up to co-parent her son Caben, five.

However, their relationship was called off after weeks of strain in 2019 – with the actor reportedly finding the relationship was “too full on”.

Last year, Stephanie found love again with Joe Mckalroy, who she hailed as the “love of her life” in a gushing tribute.

She has been dating Joe – who is kept out of the public eye – since 2022, with the pair recently suffering a devastating miscarriage.
