They may have broken up on-screen but Billy Mayhew and Todd Grimshaw’s off-screen friendship continues.

Or should we say the friendship of co-stars Dan Brocklebank and Gareth Pierce.

The pair haven’t been seen on-screen together of late after Billy had his heartbroken – again – by the schemer that is Todd Grimshaw.

The vicar believed Todd had turned over a new leaf when he returned to Weatherfield last year.

But it was always part of his plan to split Billy from ex Paul Foreman and rekindle their romance.

The characters were even due to get married on the ITV soap but Todd’s betrayal was revealed to a horrified Billy and his god daughter Summer Spellman.

So a distraught Billy kicked Todd to the curb and the couple have been no more ever since.

But while they may not be getting on in Corrie, away from the Salford set they are still great friends.

So much so the pair went on a mini-break.

Taking to Instagram with some snaps, Dan said: “Pre & post waterfall experience with @garpierce.

“A lovely mini break. Lots of laughter & fresh air!”

The pictures show the pals before and after getting soaked in an idyllic waterfall.

And fans were thrilled to get a peek into their lives away from their soap characters.

“You’re both brilliant together on Corrie! Bet its an even better friendship in real life,” one said.

Another commented: “Ah, gorgeous gents!”

“I love the way that you’re besties!” a third shared.

A fourth added: “Ahhhh I LOVE you guys.”

“Look at you two! Too bad you can’t do it onscreen…” another wrote.

The pair were all smiles on their trip

A fan also joked: “And they say ex’s can’t get along. Even if they are soap ex.”

Gareth also shared the snaps to his Instagram page, writing: “Brocklebank hangs and good times! @danielbrocklebank.”

It also featured a picture of them enjoying a laugh at the beach and another of Gareth with Dan’s beloved dogs.

Fans quickly guessed they were in Penarth, in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales.

Gareth himself is from Pwllheli, in Gwynedd, north-western Wales.
