A source told the publication: “Kym has been seeing Scott but they’re both taking things slowly.”

The insider said Kym and Scott are “still getting to know each other” and are “taking it as it comes”.

Kym has yet to comment on whether the reports are accurate.

ED! has contacted Kym’s rep for comment.

It was announced in April that Kym, who plays Michelle Connor in the ITV soap, had split from her ex-boyfriend Matt, 27.

The pair began dating in 2015.

A spokesperson for the soap star confirmed to The Sun that Kym and Matt are “taking time apart” but remain amicable.

The rep said: “Sadly, we can confirm Kym and Matt have made the decision to take some time apart but remain friends.”

Just a few days later, Kym spoke out about the split for the first time.

She wrote in her OK! magazine column: “We still care for each other, we’ll stay friends and I’m sure we’ll be a part of each other’s lives in the future.

“Now we each just want to focus on our families, our work and our friends as we move forward.”

Kym said at the time they wanted to “start afresh” in their own home.

The actress has been married twice before: to ex EastEnders actor Jack Ryder between 2002 and 2009, and to former Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas from 2012 to 2014.

She has two grown up children, David and Emilie, from her relationship with ex Dave Cunliffe, and daughter Polly, seven, with ex-husband Jamie Lomas. She and Jamie tragically lost son Archie in 2009 shortly after his birth.
