Coronation Street star Jack James Ryan has taken to social media to deny rumors of a romance with co-star Elle Mulvaney.
The young actor, who plays Jacob Hay, laughed off rumors during a Q&A with his fans on Instagram.
During the session, a fan asked Jack if he and Elle – who plays on-screen friend Amy Barlow – were dating in real life.

Are Jacob and Amy from Coronation Street dating in real life?
In response to the question, Jack said he had been asked the question a couple of times.
Then he cheekily joked: “She wishes! No, these are all jokes. We’re just really good friends. Elle is like a sister to me.”
The star shared a sweet picture of him and Elle on the set of Coronation Street in Manchester and urged fans to vote for her for Best Romance at the upcoming Inside Soap Awards.
After his 2020 introduction as a drug dealer and all-around horrible teenager, Jacob recently returned to the cobbles as a reformed character.

Fans of the ITV soap will recall that Jacob initially pretended to be friends with Amy’s cousin Simon Barlow.
However, this was all a ruse and Jacob was actually preparing Simon to participate in his gang activities.
Since then, Jacob has cleaned things up, first by getting a job at the factory.
He then got the seal of approval from Amy’s parents, Steve and Tracy, and lives with them.
Steve and Tracy were unhappy with Amy’s boyfriend, but he eventually won her over and has since proven that he truly loves their daughter.
He stepped in when she was poked at a nightclub earlier this year.

The newly reformed Jacob has slowly become a fan favorite, leading to his Inside Soap nomination.
During the Q&A, Jack was also asked who his best friends from the cast are.
He shared another shot, this time of Elle with Harriet Bibby and James Craven, who play Summer Spellman and Aaron Sandford on the ITV soap.
Jack captioned the picture, “Those three losers.”
If you want to vote for Jacob and Amy for best couple, he also posted a reminder that the deadline is September 9th.
He helpfully posted a link to the voting page in his Instagram bio.
Coronation Street normally airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV.
