Denise was said to be “gutted” the 24-year-old would not be there, but a source said: “Den is immensely proud of Matt.As much as she wanted him there, she realised you don’t turn down the Rolling Stones.”Famous faces at the wedding included Corrie actresses Shobna Gulati and Gaynor Faye, as well as fellow Loose Women Carol Mc Giffin, Jill Halfpenny and Kate Thornton.
Despite Denise leaving the year Angela started, the pair formed a close friendship.
Angela's social media accounts are littered with images of the duo supporting each other at various events and work commitments.
But Corrie babe Samia Ghadie turned down an invite to the wedding to visit the new Corrie set at Media City in Manchester. Her first to actor David Easter lasted from 1985 to 1988 when she met and married Tim Healy.
She said ahead of the production: 'Steel Magnolias came in, I looked at the script and knew instinctively I would want to do it. I need to do some theatre and if I don’t do it now I might lose my bottle a bit.
This time she rustled up a lovely little navy number by Rocha John Rocha at Debenhams, and we love the floral lace design.
