The pair are ready to start house hunting together ­ but their plans to find the perfect love nest have been put on hold until Josh's football career is more stable.

They've enjoyed a long-distance romance for two years and Brooke says: "It is hard, but it¹s all I've ever known.

"I say I can't wait for my own house, but the thing that stops me is I go and see Josh a lot."

Josh, 20, is currently on loan to Wigan, which is perfect for Brooke ­ who plays Corrie's Sophie Webster ­ because she lives close by in Manchester.

Brooke would like her beau to sign permanently with Wigan, so they can hunt for a home in the North West.

A source said: "Brooke is desperate to move in with her boyfriend.

"She doesn't like the idea of living alone and really wants to start house hunting in Manchester with Josh ­ but it all depends on his career.

"She's a true northern girl and doesn't see her future in London.

"She wants to stay in Corrie as long as they'll have her, so if Josh got a permanent move to Wigan she'd be overjoyed."

Meanwhile, Brooke¹s cast mates Catherine Tyldesley ­ who plays factory worker Eva Price, Paula Lane ­ who plays Kylie Platt and Georgia May Foote - who plays Katy Armstrong have all received great news.

The girls have been given a pay rise by the ITV soap and have signed year-long contracts worth £100,000.
