Coronation Street star Samia Ghadie looked effortlessly chic last night as she attended a charity event in Manchester with boyfriend Sylvain Longchambon.

Showing that they're still going strong, Samia and Sylvain looked loved-up as they posed for photographers at the Hearts & Minds Charity's Unique Fashion Experience held at Rosso Restaurant on Wednesday (25 September).

Mum-of-one Samia looked a million miles away from her soap character - hairdresser Maria Connor - as she sported a sunkissed tan and sleek blonde locks.

Keeping it simple yet stylish, the 31-year-old wowed in a strapless taupe BCBG Max Azria dress, which she teamed with a gold necklace and black peep-toe heels. Meanwhile, professional ice skater Sylvain wore a navy suit over a light blue unbuttoned shirt.

The couple enjoyed dinner, a live auction and a fashion show on the night, all in aid of supporting children with autism and heart defects.

Samia and Sylvain fell in love after being partnered together on Dancing On Ice in January. Prior to that, they had both come out of long-distance relationships. Samia split with actor Will Thorp before Christmas, while Sylvain split with Hollyoaks actress Jennifer Metcalfe at the end of the 2012.
