Corrie Star Katie McGlynn Dating Former TOWIE Hunk Ricky Rayment for 4 Months


Coronation Street actress Katie McGlynn has been secretly dating former reality TV star Ricky Rayment for four months, according to exclusive information obtained by HOAR. The couple was recently spotted shopping together in Essex, where Rayment resides. Exclusive photos show the pair openly displaying their affection for each other, including a passionate kiss on the street. McGlynn, who is based in Manchester, traveled to Essex to be with her new beau. This is the first relationship for McGlynn in five years, and she appears to be blissfully happy with Rayment.

Love in the Streets

McGlynn and Rayment were seen holding hands and sharing a tender moment in public, indicating that their relationship is serious. Witnesses described them as looking like a couple in love, laughing and exchanging kisses as they mingled with other shoppers. The pair was spotted leaving Hotel Chocolat, with Rayment carrying a bag, possibly a Valentine's Day gift for McGlynn. The photographs of their romantic outing speak volumes about their happiness together.

A TOWIE Connection

It seems that Coronation Street actresses have a penchant for TOWIE hunks. McGlynn follows in the footsteps of her former co-star Michelle Keegan, who is married to Mark Wright, a popular TV and radio personality. McGlynn's relationship with Rayment, who gained fame on TOWIE from 2012 to 2015, marks a new chapter in her love life.

A Match Made in October

The couple is said to have met in October while on holiday and have been inseparable ever since. They initially kept their relationship under wraps, but now they are more comfortable being seen together. With Valentine's Day approaching, McGlynn and Rayment are excited to celebrate their love.

A Down-to-Earth Romance

Rayment, aged 32, left the world of reality TV behind to focus on his fishing lake business. During his time on TOWIE, he was known for his relationships with famous personalities like Jess Wright and Marnie Simpson. McGlynn, on the other hand, has never dated anyone from showbiz. Rayment's grounded nature and entrepreneurial spirit have reportedly captivated McGlynn.

A Stellar Career

McGlynn's departure from Coronation Street in 2019 was marked by the tragic death of her beloved character Sinead from cervical cancer. The talented actress won the Best Serial Drama Performance at the National Television Awards for her portrayal of the young mother. In 2021, she participated in Strictly Come Dancing and had a nine-month stint on Hollyoaks. Last year, McGlynn embarked on a five-month theatre tour, playing the lead character in 'Wish You Were Dead'.

A spokesperson for McGlynn declined to comment on her relationship with Rayment.
