He added: "Celebrated with drinks in the hot tub but Roberta thought it would be funny to remove my swimming shorts from the suitcase. Thanks @dolly_rose_campbell for lending me your spare cossie. I think I rocked it tbf."

Several of Calum's 'Corrie' co-stars sent their congratulatory messages in the comments section of his post.

Musical theatre actress Jodie Prenger - who plays barmaid Glenda Shuttleworth - said: "Awwww congrats kidda! How fabulous xxx" whilst Paddy Bever, who won an NTA for his portrayal of schoolboy Max Turner, said: "so pleased for you both! wonderful news x"

Tanisha Gorey - who has played Asha Alahan since childhood - said: "YAYYYY!!!!!! Huge congratulations", whilst Bethany Platt actress Lucy Fallon and Elle Mulvaney, who stars as Amy Barlow, also sent their well wishes.

Calum recently admitted that he admitted that he was nearly “homeless” during the COVID-19 lockdown as the television industry shut down amid the pandemic.

He told the ‘Me, Myself and Hopefully You…?’ podcast: "Most actors, despite being professional actors, you still have to have a job to do, between jobs. Unless you're in the top one per cent. It's a hustle. That's what a lot of theatre actors struggle with. They love theatre, but it only pays enough to cover your rent while in you're in the job...You've then got to go back to waiting tables."
