ED! has contacted reps for Jessica and Ben for comment.

Meanwhile, over the summer, sources claimed that Jessica and Ben attended singer Jade Bird’s London gig together.

It came after Ben – who played Peter Beale between 2013 and 2015 – split from his ex-girlfriend actress Olivia Cooke earlier this year.

A source said at the time: “Olivia and Ben were smitten to begin with but the intensity soon fizzled out. They’re at pivotal points in their acting careers and just couldn’t make it work.”

Meanwhile, Jessica has a daughter Noa, six, from a previous relationship.

Jessica and Ben star in BBC’s The Girl Before, which airs on December 19.

It sees Jane, played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, move into a minimalist house at low rent on the condition she follows the architect’s rules.

But she learns that her predecessor Emma, played by Jessica, died there.
