The couple sparked rumours that they were dating back in March, when they watched Salford Red Devils play at AJ Bell Stadium together.

They were then spotted together in Anglesey later that month.

But neither Alan nor Tisha addressed the rumours – until they both posted the same photo to Instagram at Sam’s wedding.
