Puppy love for Corrie star Charlie De Melo as he shares surprise birth news

In the world of Coronation Street, actor Charlie De Melo is about to embark on a high-profile storyline that will his alter-ego Imran Habeeb dealing with the arrest of his foster daughter Kelly Neelan.

But, thankfully, behind the scenes, life seems far more upbeat for the Corrie star, what with his dog Toto having recently delivered a litter of adorable puppies.

Announcing the births on Instagram, De Melo can be seen cradling one of the newborns, whose arrival he announced in a post that read:

‘Well done my Toto. Everyone, say hello to Hazel, Keith, Bertha, Susan, Monty, Stella and Daisy. They’re gorgeous and healthy. Mum and babies are all doing well. Today’s been exhausting. I’m off to bed. Have fun on night watch Nana Lynne.’

Fellow cast members were quick to show their support, with Gareth Pierce (who plays Todd Grimshaw) and Samia Longchambon (aka Maria Connor) offering their congratulations.

It’s currently debatable as to which scenario will turn out to be the most draining: life with pups or providing support for Kelly. But speaking about what lies ahead where Kelly and her complicity in the attack on Nina and Seb is concerned, De Melo commented recently:

‘Imran stands by the fact that they’ve made a promise to this girl that they would be there, they would care, they would support, regardless. Toyah’s stance on it is a bit more self-protecting like, “We may have signed up for those things, but we didn’t sign up for this. To be supportive of a child is one thing, but to be supportive of a violent person goes beyond the call of duty that we’ve signed up to.”

‘Imran’s a little bit more unblinking. And despite his own reservations, it’s a case of well, this is what he agreed to do, this is what he has to do. He’s a bit more rigid, and Toyah’s a little bit more reticent about the whole thing, and that causes a little bit of a fracture between them.’
