Their son Dylan is still a Corrie character but Violet was seen departing the street in a hurry after patching things up with Jamie.

Violet actress Jenny Platt is married to Jamie actor Rupert Hill in real life and the couple tied the knot in 2013.

The couple reside in Manchester, where Rupert reportedly co-owns several pubs within the area.
