Ben Hardy and Jessica Plummer have reportedly been spotted out on a date.
The 30 year old and actress Jessica, 28, are both former EastEnders stars, with Ben being one of the many actors to play Peter Beale, and Jessica playing the temporary role of Chantelle Atkins.
The pair are currently playing an on-screen couple in a new BBC television show called The Girl Before. The four part psychological thriller is based upon a novel of the same name by J.P. Delaney, and is being filmed in Bristol.
Now, according to The Sun Online, fans have seen Ben and Jessica get close outside of working hours as they were reportedly spotted at singer Jade Bird’s London gig earlier this week.
An unnamed source told the publication: "Their on-screen chemistry turned into them spending off-screen time together since June."
Ben and Jessica have also been liking each other's Instagram pictures for sometime.
While there has been no acknowledgement of their blossoming relationship on social media, Ben has been quietly hanging out with friends and family, while Jessica was seen celebrating her daughter, Noa Lily’s, fifth birthday two weeks ago.
OK! Online has approached Jessica and Ben's representatives for further comment.
Jessica's character of Chantelle on EastEnders was most remembered for the brutal domestic abuse storyline which brought awareness to charities such as Women’s Aid and Refuge, which aims to help those affected by domestic abuse.
The storyline became especially prominent during 2020 where cases of abuse rose significantly due to the Covid-19 lockdown, and the story arc was later nominated for a BAFTA award.
