Coronation Street favourite Samia Longchambon has shared a string of rare snaps with her famous husband and young son after enjoying a family getaway. The soap star, who plays Maria Connor in Corrie, delighted fans with the new photos on social media.

Samia, 41, headed to the South of France with her husband Sylvain Longchambon, 43, for a family wedding. The couple were joined by their son Yves, eight, on the trip.

The actress looked incredible in a floral maxi dress which featured a contrasting polka dot frill neckline, paired with silver sandals. Meanwhile, Dancing on Ice star Sylvain looked dapper in a pale grey suit and white shirt.

Samia and Sylvain posed for a sweet photo with Yves, who looked adorable in a white shirt and trousers, as well as photos together outside the grand wedding venue. A fun photo showed Samia being given a piggyback with Sylvain towards the end of the celebrations.

"Had the most gorgeous weekend in the South of France for a family wedding..," Samia captioned her post. "Felicitations Thierry and Hina.. the French always know how to celebrate!! Swipe to see @slongchambon being all chivalrous and carrying me to get my flats on."

Samia and Sylvain found love while they were partnered on Dancing On Ice in 2013. The pair announced their engagement in May 2015.

And son Yves Joseph arrived via C-section on 24 September 2015 and 11 months later they tied the knot in a romantic ceremony at Gary Barlow’s old home of Delamere Manor, in Cheshire. Freya - Samia's daughter from her first marriage to Matt Smith - walked Samia down the aisle, filling the shoes of her granddad Joseph, who died of cancer in 2009.

The couple have ruled out adding to their brood in the future, having previously told OK! they are content with their family life. Sylvain told us: “Sam always told me she wouldn’t want to be pregnant after 35, so now she’s 40, that’s it."

“We’ve got our hands full with the kids we’ve got,” said Samia. “Sylvain has been talking about getting our dog another little friend but my mum says she can’t walk two dogs as she struggles with her back now. She lives five minutes from us, which is very handy – she’s always on babysitting duty. So no more kids! We’re all good and feel so lucky.”
