Coronation Street stars Alan Halsall, 37, and Tisha Merry, 25, have been in competition to lose weight for an upcoming holiday. In her most recent post on YouTube she explained that she lost the bet to her boyfriend, but he bought her a gift anyway.

“Me and my boyfriend are kind of really competitive people,” she began. “We like games and we like to do challenges, we’re sporty.

“We’re in competition with each other 90 percent of the time, we love it.”

Tisha then showed a Gucci bag to the camera as she explained: “This bag was the prize if I won the challenge.

“I didn’t win the challenge, it was to get to our goal weight for holiday. I wanted to get fit, I wanted to get healthy.

“We had been eating cr*p basically all month and Greece was coming up so I was like I have to get fit, go to the gym and eat healthy, just to feel good in general.”

She added: “So basically it was who could crack first and I didn’t win, but he remembered God bless him and he bought me this bag for my birthday, which I was so shocked.

“I put it as the bet because I knew I wasn’t going to win, so I kind of made an extravagant bet, long story short, he got me the bag.”

Tisha didn’t spill details on the amount of weight the pair have each lost, but shared a glimpse of the pair running together.

The actress, who starred on the cobbles from 2013 to 2016, was seemingly out of breath while Alan gave a thumbs up to the camera.

Over the past year, the actor has been giving his Instagram fans an insight into his work out routines and changed lifestyle.

He said on Instagram: “Health is not just about the weights you’re lifting or what you’re eating. It’s also about what you’re thinking and saying!!”

He also told his followers that he burns thousands of calories in a day.
