Sacha Parkinson has dated –
- Ben Mercer – Sacha dated autograph hunter Ben Mercer in the past. They first met outside Weatherfield studios. He was waiting outside and on seeing her, he asked for her autograph. While she was scribbling her autograph, he cheekily asked her to write down her phone number as well. She did and they started going out soon after. In June 2010, it was reported that they had separated because he couldn’t handle his girlfriend kissing another girl onscreen.
- Josh Wakefield – In the early months of 2011, Sacha was reported to be dating property surveyor Josh Wakefield. They started making public appearances by the start of the summer of 2011. In July 2011, they were spotted on a romantic vacation in Cyprus and in December, they were seen together on the red carpet at the Coronation Street Christmas party. However, that was one of their last public appearances for a couple of years. In her interview with Express that was published in January 2015, it was reported that they were still together. As there has been a scarcity of information about their dating status over the last couple of years, it can’t be verified whether they are still together or not.
- Brooke Vincent – While she was appearing in Coronation Street, she was linked with her co-star Brooke Vincent by some British tabloids because of their steamy chemistry on the show.
