Defiant Rhian Sugden and fiancé Oliver Mellor

Is this even legal???

The couple Rhian Sugden and her fiancé Oliver Mellor are on the PDA list amid the sexting scandal of Sugden with Vernon Kay.

The former Coronation Street actor did not seem fazed by Rhian on the swapping messages because the husband of Tess Daly and his fiancé Rhian Sugden are determined to ignore her recent scandal with TV presenter Vernon Kay and have proved that they are still very much intact together.

The two of them couple piled on the PDA as they were spotted shopping and grabbing coffee in Liverpool this week. They also looked un-phased by cameras as they stood in the middle of the street and once again locked lips in a passionate embrace later on.

Rhian who is a Page 3 beauty showed off her incredible figure in tight blue jeans and a leather jacket while Oliver kept his arm tightly round her throughout as he opted for khaki trousers and a casual black long-sleeved top. The lovely couple recently confirmed they’re still going strong as former Coronation Street actor Oliver shared a photo of them posing in bed together which comes after the 29-year-old hit the headlines for swapping text messages with married TV star Vernon.

Oliver who previously dated Kym Marsh was said to be angry at Rhian’s revelations last week that she had again been in touch with the TV host but it seems they are sticking together and Rhian claimed 41 year old Vernon had been desperate to meet up with her last month.

A friend of the couple previously said that Oliver is away working so he hasn’t seen Rhian since the claims emerged and he was annoyed to find out she had been messaging Vernon especially as she had kept it secret from him.  The friend said that they didn’t speak for the majority of last week as Oliver was ignoring Rhian’s calls and he was angry and had been questioning their relationship.

Oliver reportedly asked 29 year old Rhian to let him discuss the situation man to man with Vernon who is married to ‘Strictly’ host Tess Daley ahead of the story breaking but she refused. 46 year old Tess on the other hand has branded the allegations a stitch up to pals with a source telling the Sunday Mirror she and Vernon were determined not to let the incident damage their family.

The two put on a solid front as they attended a party together in Bolton on Saturday night and the couple who married in 2003 also ate together at a ­restaurant in his hometown on Friday. He ­previously sex texted Rhian back in 2010 and it has been reported. Vernon described his behavior as foolish and stupid at that time and apologized to his family on air.

Vernon said in a statement last week that he was contacted by Rhian out of the blue back in December regarding the story in 2010 claiming she had information she wanted to pass on. He recognizes how it may look when messages are pulled out of context but there was never any inappropriate intent to our communication and he was merely trying to find answers to questions that he had since 2010.
