She said: "I haven't got time - for babies or marriage. I don't like being the centre of attention so a big wedding isn't for me."

In the interview, McAlpine also spoke about the pair's joint venture - a restaurant in Manchester called Annies.

She described being co-owners of the establishment as "more of a commitment" to each other than tying the knot, adding: "It's been our dream since we met."

McAlpine and Farr got together in 2005 when they were introduced by mutual friend Antony Cotton - Sean Tully in Coronation Street.

On her current storyline with Alan Halsall, McAlpine spoke about Fiz and Tyrone going on the run to Wales with her daughter Hope and Tyrone's baby Ruby.

Subsequently, Ruby's mum Kirsty Soames (Natalie Gumede) publicly appeals for the return of her abducted child, leading to Tyrone's arrest.

McAlpine said: "It's like the Weatherfield One with Deirdre in the '90s. The audience knows that Tyrone is in the right, but the whole thing is a mess."

She also added that fans have "been great" about the tough storyline.

During the interview, McAlpine also revealed that her father had banned her from taking part in ITV reality series Dancing on Ice due to her clumsy disposition.

However, she showed support for friend and co-star Samia Ghadie, stating she was "dead chuffed" with Ghadie's performances on the show so far.
