Who is Elle Mulvaney?
As well as being an actress, Elle is often active on her social media accounts Instagram and TikTok.
The actress shares make-up and beauty videos as well as talking about working on Coronation Street.

Who is Amy’s family?
Amy Barlow is the daughter of Steve and Tracy McDonald, born in 2004.
She is also the granddaughter of Ken Barlow, Dierdre Barlow, Liz McDonald and Jim McDonald.
Amy has three half siblings on her dad’s side, Emma Brooker, Oliver Battersby, who sadly died recently and Rauiri McDonald, who died after being born prematurely.
Is Amy Barlow pregnant on Coronation Street? Who got her pregnant?
In 2019, Amy discovered she was pregnant at 14 years old. At first she refused to say who the father is, but eventually Tracy sussed out it was 17-year-old Tyler Jefferies, who terrorised Amy’s cousin Simon.
Originally the teenager decided she wanted to keep the baby. However when her parents talked of adopting her baby, she had a termination behind their backs.
At first Tracy believed she had a miscarriage, but eventually she told her that she had an abortion.
In recent weeks, she was heartbroken when her brother Oliver died. The toddler had been diagnosed with Mitochondrial disease last year.
After weeks on life support, Steve and Oliver’s mum Leanne made the difficult decision to turn off their son’s life support.
Coronation Street airs on Mondays and Wednesdays 7.30pm and 8.30pm with an hour long episode at 7.30 on Fridays on ITV.
