Yesterday she tweeted that she was 'frustrated without the use of her right arm' but it seems that Samia Ghadie is on the mend following an operation on her wrist.
The 30-year-old Coronation Street star was spotted out and about on Tuesday with her former onscreen boyfriend Will Thorp who she has been dating since last year.
Despite her wrist being bandaged up, Ghadie had a big smile on her face as the pair went shopping in Wilmslow, Cheshire.

Wearing blue skinny jeans, a yellow T-Shirt and black pumps, the actress held hands with Thorp and was seen gazing at him lovingly.
The 35-year-old actor had also dressed down for their day out, wearing blue jeans, a checked shirt and trainers as he carried a shopping bag.
It is unknown just how long Ghadie's recovery will be and if she will be wearing her bandage on the set of the ITV1 soap.

Writers may be forced to include it in the script if she has to wear it for some time, but the mother-of-one is certainly looking forward to getting back in front of the camera.
Earlier on today, she tweeted: 'Just reading new scripts… Soo excited to film these eps!!!'
Ghadie has played Weatherfield resident, Maria Connor, since 2000 and perhaps some of her upcoming storylines involve a new romance following the breakdown of her relationship with Thorp's charcater, Chris Gray
