Heartbreaking News For Coronation Street Star

Heartbreak is on the cards for one of Corrie’s stars.1vinnyCoronation Street badboy Ian Kelsey has split from his wife of 12 years Mia Terry. The actor joined the ITV soap in June as villain Vinny where he works with scheming builder Phelan to cause rifts on the Cobbles.

But his private life has also suffered a rift, as he has split with wife Mia, 41, who runs a kids drama school in Brighton. The former couple have two children Layla-Beau, 10, and Ivy-Julianna, six, together.

Last night Ian refused to comment, but a source said: “Ian and Mia are living separately now, it is really sad but it hasn’t worked out. They wanted to make it work but now their main priority are their two children. They still care about each other deeply.”

Ian married singer-songwriter Mia Michaels in December 2004, two years later they had their first child. But earlier this month he admitted to drinking beer as a way of forgetting his problems. Tweeting his followers, he said: “I find Stella taken orally until you forget you have head problem does the trick. In morning, if same problem, repeat.”
