Bradley Walsh and Debra Stephenson were hit with affair claims back in the day – but it was far from the truth.
The two actors appeared on Coronation Street in 2004. Bradley took on the role of Danny Baldwin while Debra played his on-screen wife Frankie.
But during their stint, rumours were rife that the pair had embarked on an affair – something they soon shut down.

While on the ITV soap, Bradley and Debra played a part in several big storylines. Danny cheated on Frankie several times, resulting in their divorce. Later Frankie embarked on a controversial relationship with her former stepson Jamie.
And it seemed their on-screen chemistry on Corrie was so good, that reports started to circulate that the pair were an item.
At the time, Bradley was married to his wife Donna, while Debra was pregnant with her second child with husband James Duffield.
But it turned out Bradley and Debra just had a “very close relationship” as their spokesperson was forced to issue a statement on the rumours at the time.
