Coronation Street’s Harriet Bibby, Elle Mulvaney, Jack James Ryan and James Craven seemed to be closer than ever as they partied at the soap’s summer bash. Earlier this week, the cast and crew on the ITV programme were out in force for the annual do.
Corrie icons Barbara Knox and William Roache led the arrivals to the summer party which was held on Thursday night (July 28) at The Ivy in Spinningfields.

But it’s Elle, Harriet, Jack and James who have been hitting up social media with their snaps from inside the summer party. Elle, 19, looked stunning as she posed in a plunging peachy dream mini dress at home prior to heading out into Manchester city centre. She then went on to post a string of snaps from the night to her thousands of followers.
One saw the Amy Barlow actress looking into the eyes of Jack, who plays her on-screen boyfriend Jacob Hay. In another she pulled a series of posed alongside James, who recently joined the Salford-based soap as Summer Spellman’s love interest, Aaron. Elle also made sure to grab a selfie with her bestie, Harriet, before they both posed with Jack and James.
“Corrie summer party photo dump,” Elle, 19, captioned the string of images from the tropical-themed bash. Jamie Kenna, whose exit as Phill Whittaker was confirmed this week, was among the first to comment, writing: “ Hope you managed to have fun without me!!!” to which Elle replied: “we tried we tried :(!! Ahahah.”
Jack took to his Instagram Story to share a different group shot, writing “Family photo,” showing his closeness to his co-stars. Paddy Bever, who plays the soap’s Max Turner also got in the fun. He shared a snap alongside Harriet, Elle, Adam Hussain (Aadi Alahan) and Ellie Leach (Faye Windass).
“Not even an ad for @colgate,” the teen soap star joked as they all grinned for the camera. Harriet also shared a slew of images to her Instagram page, writing: ” My faves.” One of the pictures showed Harriet donning a gold top hat alongside Mollie Gallagher, who plays the soap’s Nina.
