by Lynn Connolly

Corrie star Paula Lane has revealed that she’s engaged to her partner and fellow actor Tom Shaw.

25 year old Paula, who of course plays Kylie Platt – and has previously stared in Heartbeat and Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal, as well as The Royal and Doctors – announced the happy news via her Twitter page.

She tweeted, “Yesterday was the most amazing day! I went to York a girlfriend and came back a fiancée!

“Tom Shaw – engaged r us!”

Then later, after dozens of messages of congratulations, she added, “Thank you so much for all your lovely messages!

“I am one very happy girl and this is the best Christmas ever!”









Among her co-stars who tweeted their congrats was Samia Ghadie, who said, “Ahh huge congrats Paula and Tom. Gorgeous news. Have a mega Christmas.”

The Daily Mail reports that Paula first met Tom when they met at a college in Huddersfield, when both were just 17. They’ve been together ever since.

Earlier this year, in an interview with the Daily Star, Paula said of her relationship with Tom, “We’re feeling very lucky at the moment as we’re both in a position where we’re working.

“I think we’re just enjoying being young, having holidays and loving life as a couple.

“But saying that, I’d definitely say yes to getting married if he asked me.

“I think he’s waiting to make sure it feels right – but he’s had long enough.We’ve been together for years.

“He’s definitely the one, there’s no doubt in my mind. It’s taking him a little longer to figure it all out. But we’re very happy.”

Congrats to you both from us all at Primetime!

Let’s take a look at Paula playing Kylie on her wedding day – which I’m sure will be a far cry from Paula and Tom’s big day!
