They play a couple on Coronation Street, and it seems the Michelle Keegan and Chris Fountain are pals off-screen as well.
The actors were seen getting festive in Reading on Saturday as they turned on the town's Christmas lights on Broad Street Mall.
Looking cosy and wrapped up against the chill in big scarves, the couple seemed delighted to do the honour and flip the switch.

And 25-year-old Michelle looked every inch the starlet in a casual but stylish outfit, leaving her long brown locks down and donning a dark red lipstick.
Sporting a leather jacket, black leggings and simple grey sweater, the pretty brunette spruced up the outfit with a large fringed beige scarf that kept her warm on the cold November evening.
Meanwhile Chris looked dapper in a oxblood red scarf and black coat as he posed with his co-star by a Christmas tree.

And Michelle seems to be England's most
desirable single lady after her break-up with The Wanted singer fiance
Max George this summer.

recently showed off her incredible bikini body during a holiday in the
Caribbean, but also admitted she doesn't consider herself sexy.
She told Hello! magazine: 'It makes me laugh that people think I'm sexy, because I'm not at all.'
Speaking of her recent heartbreak, she
said: 'Obviously it was a very sad time for us, as we were together for
19 months. But I got to think of it as, “I'm not the only girl who has
ever had a break-up”.
'The worst part for me was having the
whole thing played out so publicly. In the end, I had to simply ignore
the gossip and throw myself in my work.'
Waving to their fans: Michelle and Chris both took to Twitter to tell of their delight of turning on the town's Christmas lights
And Michelle admits she is feeling much better now and that she was lucky to have a good support network of friends to rely on.
She added: 'I was really busy with some great [Coronation Street] storylines and my friends were amazing.
'But eventually you just have to let things go and get on with life. I'm in a much better place now.'
One for the fellas: Michelle, pictured here on holiday in the Caribbean, has been single ever since her split with The Wanted singer Max George in July
