The Apprentice winner Sian Gabbidon has announced the exciting news that her boyfriend Clint Gordon has joined Coronation Street.
Sian, 29, who won the hit BBC One series in 2018, took to Twitter to celebrate her partner's milestone as she retweeted a tweet that read: "Good luck to Clint Gordon who starts filming tomorrow on Corrie."
Adding her own comment, Sian sweetly penned: "PROUD GIRLFRIEND ALERT. Go Clint," followed with a heart emoji.
The Apprentice star's 23.6K followers were quick to ask for more details and who Clint would be playing on the cobbles, to which she replied with: "No spoilers!"
Sian's boyfriend Clint also took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes snap from his first day at filming.
Posting a picture of himself wearing a blue ITV padded coat in a mirror, he penned: "Day 1" with a clapperboard emoji.
Clint's character and storyline are yet to be revealed but it is believed that his episodes will air at the end of May.
Aside from Corrie, Clint has already appeared in the likes of A Series of Light and Summoning Bloody Mary.
Sian previously gushed about her longterm boyfriend when she won The Apprentice in 2018 and received a business investment from Lord Alan Sugar.
She sweetly said at the time of Clint: "He's been amazing. He has been my rock throughout this whole process.
"The hardest part of The Apprentice was being away from my family and my boyfriend for that long."
