A TV couple are looking forward to a roaring season after collecting their Castleford Tigers’ season tickets.

Coronation Street star Alan Halsall, who plays Tyrone Dobbs, and his wife Wild At Heart’s Lucy Jo Hudson visited the Probiz Coliseum to collect their annual passes last week.

The sweethearts have been regulars at Tigers’ games since Lucy Jo’s brother Ryan Hudson started playing for the club in 2002.

Lucy Jo, who also starred in Coronation Street as Katy Harris, said: “It was following Ryan that got me attending games and since then I’ve become a real fan of rugby league and I think I’ll always have a soft spot for the Tigers.”

Alan, who missed the Tigers’ first home clash of the season on Saturday because of work commitments said: “Rugby League is a fantastic game to watch and I’ll get to as many games as I can.

“It is end to end, all action, and Castleford are an exciting team to watch.”
