Corries Elle Mulvaney and Jack James film romance scenes as Amy Barlow and Jacob Hay

Coronation Street's Elle Mulvaney and Jack James have been spotting filming scenes as their on-screen alter egos Amy Barlow and Jacob Hay.

The duo were spotted braving the cold weather to film on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal on Wednesday evening, laughing and joking as they enjoyed an outdoor picnic.

The Corrie location set, which wasn't far from the soap's Salford base, was dressed with a hamper, packed with picnic goodies.

Elle and Jack have struck up a friendship off screen too and earlier this week, they were spotted getting coffee together during a filming back.

They both donned ITV studios puffer coats for their outing, with Elle looking toasty in a red jacket while Jack looked just as warm in a blue version.

Drug dealer Jacob is back in Weatherfield after he was previously recruited by Harvey Gaskell.

When he was previously on the soap, Jacob's actions saw Amy's adoptive cousin Simon Barlow join a gang which led to the death of Natasha Blakeman.

Despite becoming closer to Amy, Jack's character hasn't changed his ways.

Viewers saw Jacob and Amy's relationship begin when they bumped into each other outside the hospital during Friday night's episode.

And while Jacob tried to say he'd left his old life in the past, he was covered in cuts and bruises.

Over the next few months, the pair's relationship will go even further but disaster strikes when Amy is rushed to hospital after her drink is spiked.

Her parents Steve McDonald and Tracy Barlow fear the worst and come to the conclusion she could've taken drugs, and that Jacob is the bad influence.

However, Amy denies taking drugs and tells her concerned parents that her drink had been spiked.

Jack recently explained what he thinks of his character, saying during a press conference: "I think he's always, in one way or another, going to be tied up in his unsavoury past.

"I think it's going to be a defining feature of him moving forward whether he likes it or not but I think he is genuinely wanting to change. He genuinely wants to be a better person and create a new life for himself."
