According to The Sun, Toby, who plays Gray Atkins in EastEnders, has been quietly seeing Amy since they met through friends.

An insider told the publication: “It’s early days but they really like each other. They’re both very busy packed with work schedules at opposite ends of the country, but they try to spend as much time together as they can.”

The couple have been through a lot over the last few months. After Nate took the blame for Moira’s hit and run, in order to protect his aunt Belle, it looked like he could be facing prison.

But at his sentencing, he was given a suspended sentence.

Meanwhile in EastEnders, Toby’s alter ego Gray had been abusing his wife Chantelle. However in September Chantelle was killed by her husband.

When Gray discovered Chantelle was planning to leave him and take the kids, he pushed her onto the dishwasher, where there was an upwards facing knife.

Instead of calling for help immediately, Gray went out around Albert Square, giving himself an alibi.

When he returned home, he pretended to find his wife and staged her death to look like an accident before calling emergency services.
