Corrie star Charlie de Melo’s life including co-star ex


Charlie De Melo is a Coronation Street actor who has played Imran Habeeb nearly five years.

Fans were horrified when the solicitor appeared to end Toyah Battersby’s chances of adopting Elsie.

Imran was almost exposed as being Abi Franklin’s son Alfie’s father during a recent visit to Weatherfield.

Viewers will know that he helped Abi get custody of their son to allow him to have everything.

However, Imran was not allowed to go before the court.

Toyah became more aware of how difficult it was to do it and began to wonder why.

Toyah, Imran’s girlfriend, is baffled by Alfie’s attachment. Silver Screen Beat offers a glimpse into Charlie’s private life.

Off-screen, the actor could not be more unlike his character. He is determined to delay the trial by doing whatever it takes.

Many fans vent their anger on his social media posts, but what does he look like in real life?

Caring Charlie shares photos of cute dogs, donates blood and has a wonderful relationship with one of his costars.

Puppy love

As you can see, the star clearly loves dogs.

Charlie is a proud owner of Toni and Sarah, two golden retrievers that he loves to pose with.

Charlie, a kindhearted actor, recently shared updates on Charlie’s adorable litter and his journey with them.

Fans were in awe of the star holding the puppies, and he also shared important messages.

These adorable children have now gone to training to become guide dogs. He encouraged his fans to find out more about the work they do and to help them.

He wrote below the adorable snap: “Goodbye, babies. I’ll miss you all very dearly. Time for you to go out into the world and do some real good, just like guide dog Yogi and your other half brothers and sisters.”

Charlie revealed: “Full disclosure, I didn’t start uploading any of the photos or videos of the pups until after they had already left us. The number of thefts during lockdown was such that it was ill advised for me to even run a small risk of them being taken from us.”

“Thank you for showing so much interest and engaging so much with these pups as they grew from little hairy slugs to the goodest boys and girls.

“Guide Dogs UK offers many ways for you to help, if your abilities and interests allow. This is a great way to tell these stories and to make them more meaningful.

A whip-smart relationship

Charlie and Nicola dated

Coronation Street fans were thrilled to hear that Charlie was actually dating one of his co stars.

Nicola Thorp played Pat Phelan’s daughter Nicola Rubenstein, and apparently the pair had a close friendship for 10 years first before it blossomed into romance.

They met in 2018 and it seemed that things were going well for them.

They remained close friends

They posted cute pictures of their adventures together every day, but unfortunately it wasn’t meant that way.

Things got strained after Nicola quit briefly, but she returned shortly thereafter.

They insisted that things would not become awkward for their co-stars and colleagues, and they continued working together happily even though they split in January 2019.

Charlie may be dating someone else, but it’s not known.

Good deeds

He does good works regularly

Charlie regularly posts about his trips for blood donation and encourages his supporters to donate blood when they are not busy raising guide dogs.

The caption was written by the star. “First donation since the rule change. Thought I’d dress up for the occasion. Me donating blood, whilst wearing a rainbow tee shirt and face mask.”

He also shared that he donated plasma following the birth of his son, Covid. He hopes to use his platform for good in order to increase awareness.

Charlie joked: “Proudly holding a bag of my own Blood Wee (or as everyone insisted is calling it, ‘Plasma’).

“Despite my best efforts and continuing efforts, I was still prescribed Covid-19. I don’t know when, where, or how. “I am very fortunate not to have even noticed.”

He was also a Corrie colleague at Pride, and never misses an opportunity dress up.

It wasn’t just a day out, though. To continue his love for dogs, they went to Crufts for the entire day.

He captioned his snap: “Crufts 2020 with Mama (and as many Golden Retrievers as I could find).”

Famous friends

They appeared together onstage at Breakfast At Tiffany’s and he worked with Pixie Lott in that show.

I learned to ride a motorcycle

Many of us made banana bread and sourdough in lockdown. But Charlie discovered an even wilder hobby: riding motorbikes.

He proudly shared a photo of his progress on social networking.

Charlie described the picture as: “Me holding up my Compulsory Basic Training Certificate, which enables me to ride motorbikes, albeit small ones with L plates. I’m stood in front of a small, red motorbike, smiling dopily.”
