HOLLYOAKS star Ruby O’Donnell took advantage of pubs reopening to enjoy a boozy session with her rugby player boyfriend Sam Halsall.
The Wigan Warriors player and Ruby, both 19, started dating in September last year.
The loved-up couple hit Oast House bar in Manchester City Centre with a couple of friends on the weekend.
They enjoyed pints of lager while Ruby sipped from a bottle of beer with lime in it.
Ruby wore a vintage black leather jacket with and wore her blonde hair down in long, loose waves.
Sam opted for a Burberry shirt over black jeans and sneakers.
Ruby, who plays Peri Lomax in the soap, went public with her boyfriend on Instagram Stories just two months after they started dating, with a photo of them on a walk around Lancashire’s Rivington Pike.
The couple had been on dates to Manchester’s Christmas markets, and she’s been to watch him play.
Sam’s clearly got Ruby’s family’s approval – as her brother Billy has commented on the cute photo with two hearts.
Ruby has played wayward teen Peri in the soap since 2013.
Her character has lived through teen pregnancy, a bunker collapse, finding out sister Leela is actually her mum and finding a dead body.
She also ran away from the village and was homeless for 71 days.
The hard hitting storyline won Ruby Best Young Performance at the British Soap Awards.
Coming up next for Peri on the Channel 4 soap is a romantic storyline where she kisses Leela’s daughter Juliet, hinting at their long-awaited romance.
Sam signed a two year contract with Wigan Warriors in 2017.
Earlier this month, he was named in the first team squad for 2020.
